The tantric massage targets three levels: physical, emotional and spiritual, in order to find this feeling of unity which connects us with the Divine. No two tantra massages are alike. The goal of the tantra massage therapist is to awaken the seven chakras, or energy centers, along the spine of the body in an effort to nudge the sleeping Kundalini from its rest. The tantra massage therapist may begin the session with relaxation methods and move along into centralized chakra energy building techniques, then accelerate into personalized Kundalini arousal techniques.
Sexual arousal is a major emotional impact of tantra massage. Giving and receiving tantra massages is intimate and is often carried out only between lovers who are comfortable with each other, says Anna Lynn Sibal on MassageDen.com. Therefore, professional massage therapists caution clients to alert therapists to change healing methods when any discomfort arises.
Like other forms of massage, tantra massage can be very relaxing. Tantra massage can also alleviate physical pain and emotional fear and guilt. Tantra massage can also help people to become more fulfilled and personally empowered, says Nik Douglas, producer, writer and director of the 1969 film, “Tantra: Indian Rites of Ecstasy.” Douglas states that by stimulating inherent sensual spirituality through tantra massage, people can awaken parts of themselves that have remained repressed or “asleep.”
Breathing (Vital Breath)
Tantra massage is greatly enhanced by the utilization of tantra breathing techniques throughout the massage. These breathing techniques, called pranayamas, allow the recipient to actively move energy from one part of the body to other parts of the body, a feat that enhances the experience and helps the recipient exercise self-discipline and self-control during unanticipated arousal.
