A heavenly holistic spa hidden away in Sierre Madre offers a world of unique treatments from the Lotus V-Steam for the vagina, aka: chai-yok--the hottest treatment to hit the spa scene in the past two years-- to the Fassage, a completely unique tandem treatment, developed by owner Laura Hirsh that combines a European facial and massage, mini back facial, full Swedish rub performed by two talented therapists, for $200.
Skin Care & Body Work Day Spa & Eco-Chic Boutique, which was voted Best Day Spa by Los Angeles Hotlist two years running, explains that the Lotus V-Steam to the menu is an ancient ritual used by women around the globe for hundreds of years. The V-Steams are ph balanced to help the body naturally cleanse the vaginal and uterine linings in a safe and gentle way. The warm steam and natural oils from the plants nourish and tone the vaginal and uterine tissues. The treatment uses water steeped with medicinal herbs to address a slew of ailments including bladder and yeast infections, stones, hemorrhoids, infertility, and irregular and painful periods. Lotus V-steaming boosts the production of hormones to maintain uterine health. Steaming increases circulation to the pelvis, increasing oxygenation, dilation of blood vessels, and a relaxing of the pelvic floor muscles that tend to cramp or spasm before or during menstruation.

Lovingly nicknamed “The Vagina Whisperer” by devotees, Hirsh is also a certified birth doula, a rare distinction among spa professionals; and, along with her renowned Whole Sha-bang feminine waxing treatment, it’s why many credit her with an uncommon understanding of a woman’s intimate wellness.
