What Is Tantric Massage?
It’s usually referred to as erotic massage is a style of bodywork that is taken from the principles of tantra which is an ancient practice that originated in Central and Southeast Asia. It is a special type of massage that uses energy and chakras to relax and enter into a state of deep rest.
The goal of tantric massage is to please the partner not to build orgasm. Tantric massage will make you feel as if you are in a trance where there are no physical boundaries, time vanishes, and no worries seem important. As opposed to other massage therapy that have you covered under a towel, for the most part, tantric massage also involves massaging the genitals. For the female gender, it is referred to as ‘Yoni’ massage, and ‘Lingam’ massage is for the male gender.
Every procedure usually comes with etiquette or special rules that make them enjoyable and effective. For tantric massage, the etiquette can be quite confusing, especially for first-timers but they are quite simple.
1. Be Prepared
This is the first and major etiquette for any tantric massage, be it your first or hundredth. It is important that you are able to give a tantric massage right from your heart and also able to receive the touch. And not just in terms of the physical body, but also the heart. That is, you must be able to create intimacy with yourself before you can give or receive intimacy.
2. Eliminate Expectations
As much as it is not a crime to have read up on tantra massage, made research, or even watched movies, eliminate expectations while going for your session. It is important to clear off every preconceived notion you may have studied as it may be misunderstood.
Different masseuses usually have varied unique styles or approaches they use, which undermines most of the instructions you might have gotten on any website. The technique to be used during the massage is not the bone of contention, but what the receiver needs at the moment. And what they need can differ depending on the receiver themselves.
Tantric massages could also come with a lot of surprises. It is a package waiting to be unwrapped, not knowing exactly what you are going to get. It does not have to end fine at all times, a failed massage can be the first step in great development.
3. Keep Practicing
Practice definitely brings out the best in people and makes them perfect at what they constantly keep at. You cannot really do a tantra massage as every loving touch involving your presence is good. The important thing is that if you continue this practice, you would get more sensitive and be able to pay for your needs even more. You would also get better at the art of touching, as there are a number of factors that help bring someone into ecstasy. There are also so many other things to learn and discover as you frequent tantric massages.
This is one integral part of getting a massage due to the fact that tantric massage is very physical. Give you room for your body to speak and for your voice to be heard. In a tantric massage, it is important to give feedback at every point; before, during, and after.
In addition, many things can happen for the few first things after the massage as a tantra massage can really loosen up everything. Nevertheless, enjoy the massage and the glow that comes after it. And even if it is not what you want, realize that it is good for you and it is all part of the process.
5. Respect Boundaries
Before going for a tantric, think about what your limits are. Have a discussion with your partner, and allow for a good intake and preparation. In advance, make clear agreements on what your mental and physical boundaries are.
It is a misconception that you have to be stark naked when getting a tantric massage. You can get it with your clothes on if you would not be comfortable being totally naked. The only downside to this is that it might be difficult to work with hot oil.
Another popular misconception is that the focus of a tantric massage should be on the major sexual parts of the body. It is very possible to get the tantric massage on other non-sexual parts of the body and still achieve the same result.
6. Be Receptive
The main part of the tantra massage is activating and letting free the flow of life energy (prana). Tantra massage is an energetic kind of massage in which sexual energy also gets attention. The whole body participates in a tantric massage and erotic zones can be touched. This happens only with permission from the recipient in case they are convenient with it.
The first place to start receptiveness is your heart. Opening up the heart and activating the heart’s energy is an important step.
