Gwyneth Paltrow steams her vagina.
The 42-year-old actress has admitted she undergoes regular Mugworth V-Steam treatments at the at the Tikkun Spa, in Santa Monica, which "cleanses" her private parts and uterus and provides an "energetic release".
The Oscar-winning star is advising all women to have the procedure to their genitals.
In a post on her lifestyle website Goop, Gwyneth - who split from husband Chris Martin last year - revealed: "Tikkun is the next level when it comes to Korean spas, combining high-tech far infrared heat with traditional Korean sauna therapies. So, if you want to lay down in a Himalayan salt brick tiled sauna, or sit in a Hwangto clay room, you get the added benefit of far infrared heat. And, in addition to the sauna rooms, there's a long menu of massages and kick-ass body scrubs to complement the sauna time.
"We're burying the lede though, because the real golden ticket here is the Mugwort V-Steam. You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release - not just a steam douche - that balances female hormone levels. If you're in LA, you have to do it. (sic)"
On the website for Tikkun Holistic Spa five different V-steams are available - the signature, the slimming, the infertility, the post-partum and even a signature V-steam for men.
An individual V-steam costs $50, while a booking for five is $200.
