Yoni eggs were traditionally used by Asian women for female sexual energy cultivation because a yoni egg practice was believed to nourish JING. JING is the life force energy of the body, the sexual energy known to be responsible for health and youthfulness. The Jade egg practice, as it was traditionally known, used to be a secret known only to royalty and the highest classes of society in ancient China, where the Empress, wives and concubines of the nobles were able to connect fully with their sensual energy and experience full orgasmic bliss during sex – and ensure the same for their partners. It also ensured that they remained youthful, radiant and vital as well as powerfully sexually-active well into old age. Fortunately for the modern woman, Yoni Eggs have come to the West…
Just as we work out the body to increase health and strength, we work out our yoni (vagina) for the same reasons. Women have many muscles and tendons in the pelvic region that must be well toned if we are to experience radiant health. When our vagina and pelvic region are cultivated through educated exercise and visualization, we prevent prolapse, sagging of the internal organs, premature aging and we increase sexual satisfaction. The practice of Qigong focuses on keeping the lower abdominal region (the tan then) educated and toned. Vaginal Qigong cultivates the yoni so that she remains radiant, youthful, juicy and strong.
Some of the benefits of a yoni egg practice include:
• strengthening your pelvic floor and yoni muscles, and by doing so, preventing pelvic organ
(uterus, bladder, vagina, small intestine, rectum) prolapse and loss of bladder control;
• preparing for, or recovering from childbirth;
• balancing hormones and reducing symptoms of PMS;
• healing sexual trauma (abuse, miscarriage, abortion, difficult childbirth);
• increasing creativity, passion, libido, as well as yoni lubrication;
• increasing the depth, intensity and frequency of orgasm for both partners;
• stepping into the embodiment of what it truly means to be a fully empowered sexual and sensual women.

We are living in a hyper-active world with endless to-do lists, chronic stress, simultaneously managing career and household demands, and being bombarded with the news and social media, to name only a few. Furthermore, all of this is running on the backdrop of past and current adverse/traumatic experiences of which our bodies keep the score. Our bodies hold on to big traumas, such as sexual abuse, miscarriage and abortion, as well as to micro-trauma that happen to all of us, all the time. Micro-traumatic insults occur when we receive something inside of us when we are not ready, for example, being penetrated when not fully lubricated and aroused, saying yes when we actually feel no, using painful menstrual products, and experiencing pain or discomfort during sex/unsatisfying sexual experiences and gynaecological procedures. Based on the work of Dr. Wilhelm Reich, the way in which the body hold on to these insults is through a process of learnt armouring/protection, where it has intelligently found a way to not feel as much as it could - a kind of numbing and tightening. He noticed that a person's tissue distorts in 7 areas, which happen to correlate with the chakra system, so as to protect the body. This guarding or chronic "holding" is a state of unconscious contraction within the body which can limit energy moving through the body, causing a stagnation or blockage. One of the primary areas we experience this is in the pelvis, especially the cervix.
Because the cervix and the central nervous system are connected via the hypogastric, pelvic and vagus nerves, it is of paramount importance to de-armour the cervix, to facilitate the release of trauma imprints and opening up and surrendering to all of life. A yoni wand practice is an excellent way of accomplishing this: not only will feeling and pleasurable sensation be restored to the yoni and cervix, increasing the likelihood of experiencing G-spot and cervical orgasms, but one’s capacity to experience connection with one-self, partner and every aspect of life will also expand.

Chinese Herbal Medicine is an ancient system of healthcare which dates back to more than two thousand years, and takes a holistic approach of diagnosis and treatment and addresses both the symptoms and the root causes of illness. Unlike some modern approaches to herbal medicine which isolate and extract a single pharmaco-active component of a herb, for example, Silymarin from Milk Thistle, Chinese medicine draws on the intelligence of a whole plant where all of it is included, and is combined in synergy with other plants in specific formulations. These formulations encourage the body to heal itself naturally, restoring balance to the body’s systems, thereby both treating and preventing illness. Chinese herbal treatments have little or no side effects when used appropriately.
Please refer to the list below for the most common formulations to be used for female hormonal imbalances. However, it is important to visit a licensed Chinese medicine practitioner for a more appropriate diagnosis of Chinese Herbal Medicine, individualized according to your specific pattern. My personal recommendation is Dr. Vinay Jagjivan (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org), who had years of experience, specifically with women’s gynaecological concerns.

Belly (waist) beads:
Traditionally: The sacred women’s practice of wearing belly beads date back as far as ancient Egypt, where paintings of dancers wearing the beads appear on tomb walls, with belly beads signifying status. In other parts of Africa, historians posit that the tradition of waist beads has been around at least since the 15th century and may have originated among the Yoruba tribes, now practiced mainly in Nigeria and in West Africa, notably Ghana. In these and other indigenous cultures, coming-of-age girls would receive their first set of belly beads from their mothers, upon the arrival of their first bleed, marking a beautiful rite of passage into womanhood. Other uses of these beads, which are typically worn at all times (even while bathing or sleeping), include gifting to young women about to marry or birth a baby, or wearing the beads while pregnant, or, specifically in the Zambezi region of Namibia, as well as in Malawi, Zambia and other parts of Angola and Zimbabwe, the beads are used to entice husbands. Senegalese and Yoruban women, in particular, heightened their allure with the gentle clicking of sweetly perfumed tiny bead strands worn around the waist underneath their clothing. Belly beads also serve as symbols of sensuality, fertility, initiation femininity, maturity, protection and sensuality. Waist beads are also found in other cultures, and while African and Islamic women typically keep them under wraps and private, only for chosen partners to see, some display the beads over their clothes or on bare midriffs, such as belly dancers in Eastern cultures.
Purpose and uses: Adorning your waist and hips with beads help you to drop in and check in with your womb, staying "womb conscious" throughout the day, as the beads making contact with your skin always brings your awareness down to your womb space in a very subtle but profound way. When using seeds, shells, crystals or semi-precious beads, it brings an additional dimension to womb consciousness by way of the properties that the specific stone or seed has. Waist beads can also be used to symbolize the start of a new journey or a promise that you make to yourself. Women who wear waist beads for ceremonial purposes will choose a strand that resonates with the event and imbue it with their specific intentions. However a woman chooses to wear her beads, they help to connect with, and enhance her sensuality or sexuality as they possess intimate appeal and can provoke desire. Women can lure their lovers with the rattle of beads or bells, or use them as a means to communicate their fertility at certain times of the month.
