The word 'Tantra' has garnered so many connotations over the years......almost like a myth becoming a reality or Chinese whispers morphing into the truth. Classical Tantra is an ancient philosophical path to personal liberation, freedom from past conditioning and the constraints of narrow minded thinking allowing our authentic self to shine through.
Liberation of the mind, body and spirit to 'be' and enjoy the present moment. Free from materialistic wanting/ desire. Clarity descends and belief in oneself, we are all divine and we are all responsible for our own state of mind.
Our bodies harbour no shame yet are to be celebrated and respected. The saying 'my body is a temple' comes from The Tantra yogic tradition whose roots are found in Hatha Yoga and Meditation- purification of the mind- from the shackles of negative thinking, acceptance of reality, that emotions are never static and like thoughts come and go, finding joy in the mundane and nature and above all, awareness. Yoga and breathwork (pranayama) purify and condition the body, awareness of movement and breath (life force) and the body. Modern day Mindfulness has been appropriated from Tantric and Buddhist scriptures.
So where does Tantra Massage fit into the spectrum? What is Tantra Massage?
The link to fantastical sex has no foundation in the ancient texts of Classical Tantra from the Indian Saiva tradition. Neo Tantra conceived and made trendy by modern gurus such as Osho have exploited a tenuous link from dark rituals practiced by obscure Tantric lineages which died out centuries ago. But the true association is in pleasure. And the sacred ritual of a divine being, opening himself to the pleasure of the senses.
To be a fully enlightened being our senses must be open or awakened. In an authentic Tantra session this beautiful awakening should take place in a meditative state, so you are fully grounded and 'in the moment'. Simple enlightenment can also be called contentment, peace from within.
Pleasure encompassing all the senses, sweet incense, beauty enjoyed by the eye, warm, heart centred touch, soothing music, and the taste of ecstasy in whatever form that takes.
Genuine healing Tantra massage techniques originated from the Taoist branch of Tantra, Tantra found it's new home in Tibet, flourishing within Buddhism and in parts of Asia when Islam banished Tantra from India. In Tantra Women and Men are of equal standing and some ancient lineages worshiped The Goddess. Ayurvedic massage and medicine is said to stem from Tantra.
The Tao believe all that we need to heal the body is within. When we are healthy our mind and bodies are in balance, free from depression and ill heath, etc. Genuine Tantra massage is rooted in the specialist organ massage Chi Nei Tsang and Karsai which promotes healing energy (mind, body, heart) and restores that balance when used with meditation and movement. It is also part of a healthy lifestyle which respects the full potential for orgasmic pleasure simply stimulated by heart centred touch, the senses, and the power of breathwork.
Tantra believes that there is a fusion of mind and heart, they should work in harmony rather than being pulled in different directions. Tantra Massage is also part of a spiritual life's journey to be at one with the self plus open to finding and exploring true intimacy with another. To enjoy the pleasure principle incorporating trust and honesty, intrinsic to a joyful life.
A Tantra Massage Session reminds the soul of the infinite pleasures and pleasure potential stored within all our bodies, just waiting to be ignited.

I find that most of my patrons who are new to Tantra begin their Tantric journey because they feel they are looking for a deeper aspect of peace and sensuality. They reach a time in their lives either personally or sexually when they know there must be more to life or sex than they have experienced. A quest for a deeper understanding of themselves or a way to create an intensity of sensuality that they have heard exists but have never been able to experience within themselves or with a partner.
Tantra brings total bliss and peace and awakens the body to heights of pleasure we always dreamed existed. It's about a deep awareness of the moment and enjoying sacred touch which is essential to well-being. Touch enables us to feel cared for and nurtured in a loving way.
Tantra is not just about sexuality it's a lifestyle and philosophy that can easily be integrated into our lives with enormous benefits to ourselves and those whose lives you touch.
