Are you curious about the workings of a tantra massage – one of the most popular treatmentsthat combines deep eroticism with genuine physical and emotional therapy, not to mention having philosophical and meditative undertones? If so, we’ll be glad to shed some more light on this remarkable procedure. Read on if you want to learn more!
It’s no secret that a tantra massage is very sensual, but it doesn’t end there
Indeed – this procedure is meant to help you embrace the sensual and erotic urges and impulses, but also use them to work to your advantage. Both you and your therapist will most likely be naked and no part of the body will be left untouched when all is over. The nakedness also has another aspect to it other than the erotic – it symbolises openness and closeness, which further facilitates the emotional aspect of the whole procedure.
How is the whole thing done?
- The initial stage is typically resembling a meditative ritual. Your masseuse will sit opposite of you and encourage you to close your eyes and clear your mind, after which she will teach you the basics of correct, rhythmical and synchronised breathing that further the feeling of ease and control. Once you get used to the right breathing technique, your massage can begin properly.
- You get to lie down and your body will get covered in aromatic massage oils which will further boost every touch that will follow after. Alternatively, the whole thing will start with you being gently stimulated by luxurious and fantasy-sparking props such as ostrich feathers, soft furs and other objects.
- The massage is characterised by slow, gentle, suspending strokes that build up arousal and keep you right at the edge of orgasm. But you shouldn’t let go just yet, but rather use your breathing to control the urge to climax and postpone it until you build up even more energy.
- The excited, aroused state of mind that you find yourselves in enables the hidden feelings and repressed thoughts to surface and perhaps reach a resolution or be washed away in waves of pleasure once you let the final, long-delayed orgasm overwhelm you. People can cry or be overjoyed as a result of an orgasm and there’s no shame in it. It’s what tantra is there for!
Sexually therapeutic potential of tantra
Is there a potential for tantra to be sexually therapeutic? The answer is simply: “yes”. The intimate aspect is very strong in this massage and there’s a complete openness and non-judgemental approach with which you’re catered to. You’re free to explore yourself and your sexuality without any fear, but no one will be forcing you to go beyond the limits of what you find comfortable. The whole procedure is brimming with yet untapped sexual energy which you’ll learn to master and control and utilise. It’s not hard to see the implicationsof this for your own sexuality. If you’re suffering from low libido and low sex drive – which is more common than you might think, have problems with erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation – tantra can significantly help in remedying these. It’s of course important to maintain consistency and one tantric session may not be enough – it’s an art that takes long to master, but its benefits (whether directly sexual or not) will stick with you afterwards!
Now you should know more both about how a tantric massage works and how it can positively impact your sexuality.
