In this post, we’ll break down everything you need to know about this tantalising massage.
Tantric massages are often considered to be part of a broader field of Tantra practices, which are based on a spiritual and philosophical ideology that emerged in ancient India. Dating back over a thousand years, Tantra is a means of focusing the energies of body and soul to dispel negativity and awaken the spirit. It connects you with the universe and is a powerful means of channelling your deepest desires and potential. In fact, in Sanskrit, Tantra translates as “to loom”, the idea being to weave and channel your energies by moving your body into places of peace, discovery and liberation.
Although tantric massage didn’t emerge as part of traditional Tantra spirituality, it certainly draws on its rich spiritual heritage. In the 1970s, Eastern spirituality met Western sexuality to birth the intensely sexual movement of tantric practices we know today. Early practitioners of tantric massage infused traditional massage techniques with a uniquely sensual spirituality to create a new world of sexual liberation.
Tantric massage uses the core principles of Tantra spirituality to manipulate the body through touch and sensation to achieve a deep state of relaxation, sensuality and sexual liberation. As with traditional forms of massage, the masseuse works your muscles to relieve pain and reduce stress, but tantric massage takes it a step further by channelling and intensifying your sexual energy.
Freeing your body, mind and soul of negativity and inducing an intense sensation of pleasure and sensual release, tantric massage is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Arousing and awakening your sexual energies, it also works to relieve tension and stress, elevate the spirit and transport you to a place of pure ecstasy. You’ll feel reinvigorated, energised and awoken to a new world of pleasure. Tantra allows you to leave behind the stresses of the modern world and enter a timeless one centred around indulging in pleasure and sensation.
No one tantric massage is the same as another, and that’s because there’s no set practice. Instead, every tantric massage is tailored to channel your unique energies. It can last anywhere between 30 and 120 minutes, or indeed for many hours if you wish to further explore the sensual benefits and heady pleasure of building and maintaining your arousal levels for even longer, and incorporate a range of different techniques, touches and sensations, but one thing is certain — the session will end in a blissful release of sexual energy.
Before beginning your massage, your masseuse will speak with you to get to know a bit about you, including your points of stress and tension, your desires and your unique pleasure points.
Once they know you a little better, the masseuse will caress your skin with a silky warm oil, using their skilled fingers to tease out any tensions in your muscles and stimulate your senses. Together, you’ll work on your breath, inhaling and exhaling deeply and profoundly as you push the powerful sexual energies around your body.
Gradually, you’ll fall deeper and deeper into the tantric experience as the masseuse draws you into an intoxicatingly seductive and decadent place of spiritual and sensual intimacy. Remember, this massage is not about a quick release, but about prolonged pleasure and a long, intimate release. Your erotic energy will be awakened and aroused as it moves slowly and teasingly throughout your body.
Tantric massage has many benefits for your sexual and sensual health. By stimulating your sexual energy, tantric massages help to improve your self-confidence and performance in your erotic, love and even work life. As you become receptive to the masseuse’s touch, you will also become more perceptive of and sensitive to other women in your life.
Tantric massage also benefits your overall health. It can improve vitality; reduce stress; treat common sexual issues, such as erectile dysfunction; aid spiritual awakening; improve circulation; increase your sex drive and improve your sleep, so that you wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.
