Did you know that a yoni wand can benefit your pelvic health? Most assume that a yoni wand is designed for pleasure – and it is!

The added upside is that there are some excellent pelvic health benefits to using yoni wands too.

Here are my favourites:

Yoni wands to reduce menstrual cramps

While there is no scientific / medical evidence to show that using a yoni wand can help reduce menstrual cramps, there are women’s accounts and experiences to suggest they do.

Here are 5 ways yoni wands may help with your monthly period:

Crystal Wands & Eggs for Improved Blood Flow

Advocates of crystal healing say that crystals like jade or rose quartz can enhance blood circulation and energy flow in the body. This improved blood flow to the pelvic area might offer relief from cramps.

Relaxing Muscles

When you gently use a yoni wand inside the vagina, it might help loosen up the pelvic muscles, which can be tense and cause cramps during menstruation.

Acupressure Points

According to traditional Chinese medicine, there are certain points on the body that, when stimulated, can help with pain relief and overall well-being. Some people believe that using a yoni wand can hit these points, potentially easing menstrual discomfort.

Finding Emotional Comfort with Yoni Wands

Taking time for self-care rituals, like using a yoni wand, can provide emotional support during your period. Feeling relaxed and cared for might indirectly help reduce stress, which can worsen cramps.

Placebo Effect

Even if there’s no scientific evidence, simply believing that a yoni wand will help can sometimes lead to a perceived reduction in pain. The power of positive thinking and expectation shouldn’t be underestimated.

    While some folks find relief with yoni wands, it’s always a good idea to check in with your healthcare provider for personalized advice on managing menstrual discomfort.

    Using a yoni wand to improve vaginal lubrication

    Some women believe that using a yoni wand can help enhance vaginal lubrication. I’m one of them!

    Aside from the obvious, which is using the wand for a fun self-love session and a good time, when you gently massage the walls of the vagina with the smooth surface of the wand, it can stimulate natural lubrication production.

    So, if you’re someone who needs to use lube or a partner’s saliva, this might be a good option to get the juices flowing. Plus, the pressure and movement might increase blood flow to the area, which can also contribute to better lubrication.

    It’s kind of like giving your body a little nudge to do what it does best—keeping things comfortable and smooth down there!

    Now, it’s important to keep in mind that everybody’s body is different, so what works wonders for one person might not have the same effect for another.

    And while some swear by the benefits of using a yoni wand for lubrication, it’s always a good idea to listen to your own body and see what feels right for you.

    Yoni wands relax tight vaginal muscles

    Experiencing vaginismus, an involuntary tightening of the vaginal muscles and walls, can be incredibly challenging, making any form of sexual penetration intensely painful and impossible.

    However, incorporating yoni wands into slow, private self-love and care sessions became a transformative practice for me. It provided a safe space to connect with my body without the pressure to perform or please anyone but myself.

    During these sessions, I could take my time and truly feel into each sensation, allowing myself to breathe through the discomfort and gradually work through the tension.

    Using a straight crystal yoni wand, I would gently ease it in, inch by inch, counting each moment and focusing on relaxing with every stretch and extension.

    Eventually, I reached a point where I could feel my body unlock, releasing the tightness and allowing me to fully enjoy the massage.

    Through patience, self-love, and perseverance, I found these sessions helped me gradually overcome vaginismus, empowering me to reclaim control over my body and experience pleasure in ways I never thought possible.

    How a happy pelvic floor can help you in other ways

    Your pelvic floor is like the unsung hero of your body, playing a crucial role in your overall health and well-being. As women, and especially women who’ve had children, a lot of our health issues stem from weak pelvic floor muscles.

    Aside from training them to become stronger, here’s 3 ways they are connected to other parts of our body and overall health.

    Better Posture and Core Strength

    Think of your pelvic floor as the foundation of a sturdy house. When it’s strong and happy, it helps keep your posture in check and your core stable. So, a healthy pelvic floor not only keeps your spine aligned, but also supports your abs and back muscles, making you less likely to deal with pesky lower back pain or wobbly hips.

    Say Goodbye to Lower Body Aches

    Ever had those annoying hip or groin pains that just won’t quit? A happy pelvic floor can help keep those at bay. By staying strong and functional, it reduces the chances of developing issues like pelvic girdle pain or achy hips, giving you more freedom to move around comfortably.

    Chill Out and Relax

    Believe it or not, your pelvic floor has a connection to your emotional well-being. Tension in those muscles can be linked to stress and anxiety. So, by taking care of your pelvic floor through exercises and relaxation techniques, you’re not just easing physical tension—you’re also giving yourself a mental breather, helping to dial down stress levels and promote a sense of calm.

      After birth-restrengthen your pelvic floor

      Pelvic floor exercises can be a game-changer, especially for women who’ve gone through childbirth. They can help you restrengthen your muscles and speed up any postpartum pelvic blues.

      Here’s 3 ways pelvic floor exercises can support mommies after birth:

      Tackling Postpartum Pee Troubles

      So, you know how after having a baby, some women deal with sneeze-induced leaks or sudden urges to pee? Pelvic floor exercises can help tighten things up down there, improving bladder control and reducing those unexpected leaks.

      Healing and Recovery

      After childbirth, your pelvic floor muscles can use a little TLC. Doing pelvic floor exercises helps speed up the healing process by increasing blood flow to the area and promoting muscle strength. It’s like giving your body a supportive hug as it bounces back from the amazing feat of childbirth.

      Finding Support and Guidance

      Alright, so you’re ready to dive into pelvic floor exercises, but where do you start? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

      Look for support groups or classes specifically for postpartum women. They’re a fantastic way to connect with others who are on the same journey and get expert guidance on how to do pelvic floor exercises safely and effectively.

      And remember, be patient with yourself—your body just did something incredible, so give it the time and care it needs to bounce back strong!

        Somatic tips for pelvic floor health

        Somatic exercises can be beneficial for supporting yoni health by increasing awareness, promoting relaxation, and improving circulation in the pelvic area.

        Here are some somatic exercises you can try:

        Pelvic Floor Relaxation

        Start by lying on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Take a few deep breaths to relax your body. Then, focus your attention on your pelvic floor muscles. Imagine them gently releasing and softening with each exhale. You can also gently rock your pelvis back and forth to encourage relaxation in the pelvic area.

        Hip Circles

        Stand with your feet hip-width apart and place your hands on your hips. Begin to slowly circle your hips in one direction, making smooth and controlled movements. As you do this, pay attention to any areas of tension or discomfort in your pelvic region. Reverse the direction of the circles after a few repetitions. This exercise helps increase mobility in the hips and pelvis, promoting better circulation and flexibility.

        Yoni Breathing

        Find a comfortable seated position and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths to center yourself. As you inhale, visualize your breath traveling down to your yoni, filling it with warmth and energy. As you exhale, imagine releasing any tension or negativity stored in the pelvic area. Continue this rhythmic breathing pattern, focusing on connecting with your yoni and promoting a sense of relaxation and vitality.

        Pelvic Tilts

        Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your hands on your pelvis. Inhale deeply, then exhale as you gently tilt your pelvis upward, pressing your lower back into the floor. Hold for a few seconds, then inhale as you release back to neutral. Repeat this movement several times, focusing on engaging your pelvic floor muscles and maintaining a smooth, controlled motion.

          These somatic exercises can be incorporated into your regular self-care routine to support yoni health and overall well-being. Remember to listen to your body and change the exercises as needed to suit your individual needs and comfort level. If you have any concerns or persistent symptoms, it’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare provider.

          Pelvic floor health is important to every woman (and man!) and throughout our lives we will face shifts and changes based on our physical health, childbirth and age.

          A yoni wand is a great tool and there are many other wonderful ways to support your pelvic health – for example I love the work of Donna Brooks, a somatic therapist who has some great videos on pelvic health through somatic movement.

          Using a yoni wand to benefit your pelvic health is not only fun but can be incorporated into your health and self-care routines!

          I would love to know if you know of any other benefits I will be add to this list over time!
