The full benefits of massage and relaxation techniques and their positive effect on our health have been recognized and proven beyond any doubt and while there are many popular massage “styles,” the Tantric and sensual massage have seen a great surge in popularity recently and are the talk of the town. Often mistaken for simple erotic massage, the Tantric massage is still sensual, but has a deeper meaning and aims at complete relaxation and awakening of the senses rather than sexual arousal or satisfaction alone. The main advantage of these techniques, which originated in the East, is the fact that they are often coupled with a few other exercises and they deliver powerful and utter enjoyment and relaxation.
Often, the massage would start with gazing or breathing exercises, which are meant to build a bond, special connection, between the massage therapist and the receiver. Then, the session would typically continue with a full body, sensual massage, during which there are no barred zones, and the infamous Yoni and Lingam massages could be incorporated into the session as well. Lingam is the male’s phallus, but their touching does not aim to achieve an orgasm, but rather heighten the senses and awaken the sexual energy. Arousal is often expected and orgasms are welcomed too, but they are not the ultimate goal of a Tantra session!
