Massage > Tantric Massage
Tantric (or Tantrik) massage is perhaps best described as a 'new age phenomenon'. In
practice it is an extension of sensual massage
designed to harmonize the body consciousness with the recipients sexual energy.
While many puritans see this as nothing more than an aggrandized sensual or
erotic massage, serious schools of thought have emerged and there are many
credible institutions around the world that practice and teach tantric massage.
The goal of the masseuse/masseur is to bring the client to a high level of sexual
arousal and have them bathe in this euphoria without the release of orgasm.
Although orgasm is considered one of the
highest spiritual attainments for many people, extended time in this
euphoric state is said to raise consciousness, improve self esteem, awareness
and communication skills.
Largely ignored by the main stream massage profession, tantra is often seen as a
cult, however tantra as a spiritual path is a recognised Mahayana Buddhist
practice with many millions of followers and is considered the 'right hand path
of tantra'. The tantra of sex of which Tantric massage is a part is considered
the 'left hand path'. The debate has been going for over a thousand years as to
the validity of the left hand path as a spiritual practice, and I am not about
to debate this here, however it is important to note that practitioners of Tantric practices have valid spiritual
and healing experiences.
As with sensual massage, Tantric massage presents an ethical dilemma for many,
however it has proven to be a useful tool for healing, reaffirming an
individuals belief in themselves, or to helping to grow and restore relationships. It is
also a novel way to explore the inner reaches of one's own
