what is tantra massage?
Not all tantra massages are created equal. Some people advertise "tantra massage" but simply provide "rub & tugs" or sensual massage with a happy ending. These "practitioners" often don't have much training and usually provide a somewhat superficial experience.
I do believe there is a time and a place for everything.
My tantra massage is different.
SkyDancer Tantra Massage is a truly unique experience. Over the past 15 years, I have developed a wonderful, whole body treatment that blends various relaxing, therapeutic and sensual techniques. My methods include: reiki, swedish, deep tissue, lomi lomi, pressure point, conscious breathing and intimate touch. The overall experience is BLISSFULLY relaxing and replenishing... offering an integration of mind, body, spirit.
So... what is Tantra?
“Tan-tra” comes from two Sanskrit words: Tan-oti and Tra-yati.
Tanoti means: expansion [of consciousness]
Trayati means: liberation [of energy]
So Tantra literally means: The expansion of consciousness with the liberation of energy.
The energy we are liberating is our sexual energy (creative, primal), our emotional energy (heart and gut) and ultimately our kundalini life force energy (spirit): the energy of spiritual awakening and transformation.
Tantra also means to weave... and to merge. Masculine and feminine. Day and night. Heaven and earth. To recognize the unity beyond all separation. This is the ideal of tantra.
Some reasons why clients come for Tantra Massage:
*PLEASE NOTE: Unlike traditional massage therapy, Tantra Massage invites all parts of you to be included in the treatment. Your heart, mind, body and soul are welcome. Your emotions are welcome. Your sexual energy is welcome. You are welcome, just as you are. Each session includes a brief consultation where we will discuss your intention and any relevant history, concerns, health issues and boundaries.
Sometimes doing deep work, brings up deep feelings... or it activates certain energies in the body. Things can get a little messy and that's ok. This is a safe space to feel and release. If you need ongoing support, we can make that happen.
in depth consultation
Every session includes a brief 10-15 minute consultation to cover the basics. But you are welcome to use as much time as you need to process your thoughts and feelings in a relaxed, non-judgmental environment. This may include issues related to your family, religion, sexual history or anything that you want to talk about.
In our society, it's considered impolite to discuss subjects like sexuality, so it can be very liberating to have a safe space where you may feel heard and acknowledged.
