Reviving Fire

My name is Laura Durbin (pronouns are she/her/hers), and I am a Pelvic Steaming Practitioner in Frederick MD ( I travel to postpartum clients in the DMV area). To prepare for conception, I use pelvic steaming for fertility, reproductive diagnoses, STI’s, and balancing the menstrual cycle. After conception, I use pelvic steaming for labor preparation beginning at 38 weeks, labor, postpartum, miscarriage, and abortion recovery. I use traditional East-Asian bodywork therapies such as pelvic steaming, full body herbal steam saunas, and gua sha to awaken your bodies natural wellness and health. In the postpartum time, I use gua sha to address clogged ducts and mastitis. I am passionate about helping people to feel at ease, joyful, and at home in their bodies. I am a trauma-informed health practitioner and an affirming provider. LGBTQ + centered.
