Tantric Massage has been practiced for over 5000 years. This ancient art from the East is said to calm the organs as well as the mind. Once we discover how to turn off the mind we open ourselves up to a whole new sensual world where the way we feel takes precedence over the way we think.
The body’s natural healing process works at its best when the mind is disengaged. Removing logical thought allows a heavenly peace to enter our being, this peaceful energy removes negative stress from each part of the body. Tantric Massage leads us towards peace and then releases us into a state of bliss.
When the body is nurtured and pampered the spirit also gathers strength. As Tantric Massage transforms our sexual energy into a force that is positive, other areas of our lives are affected in positive ways. When the body is fulfilled, the mind makes more efficient decisions.
When the pleasure receptors in the body are engaged, our inner awareness expands. Our fulfillment is deeper than before, we understand and respect the needs of our body.
According to Mantak Chia, the master responsible for bringing this esoteric practice to a modern Western audience, Tantric Massage sends the mind into hibernation, the space created is where the repair of body and mind takes place.
Tantric Massage gives power to the body because it understands the natural rhythm that is within every individual. Our inner self and sensuality craves attention. At first we find it difficult to relax and surrender to pleasure, at first we feel that loss of control will render us weak. But a deeper inner strength emerges when we experience honor and respect for our inner self. Massage stokes can be done fast or slow, but in terms of their effect, the slower, the better! The reason for this is that the natural response to touch by the nervous system, is to see if this is a treat. Once you allow time for the nervous system to establish that you are in no harm, and in safe hands, true relaxation can occur.
