Tantra massage Prague Ltd. - How tantric is a Tantra massage

To what extent does tantra massage represent the tantra?

Although tantra and tantra massage are obviously not the same thing, a tantra massage the way we practise and teach it in our centre, has a spiritual base that is historically, locally and intellectually a part of tantra teaching that provides mutual connection. A modern tantra massage was created naturally by developing ancient tantra in contemporary tantra schools. In the paragraphs below let me describe connecting tantra philosophy, tantra and tantra massage.

Tantra massage is a ritual procedure a key to which is not only massaging skills of a giver but mainly an overall approach. With tantra massage we focus not only on selection of particular moves and their precise combination but every new tantra massage is completely new and we create it as we go according to the personality of a giver and a receiver in their mutual symbiosis. Tantra massage is different with each person but we respect its old rooted structure. Every tantra massage is a unique ritual; the structures come from old past but according to their patterns we can care about each other even today. It is similar to monks drawing mandalas; they also create originals but with respect to old rooted patterns. Mandalas are not completely a work of a free creative spirit therefore their authors never sign them. The resulting ritual has firm basis but always varies to an extent.

Tantra massage also works with an aspect of worshipping. During the massages we worship a divine part of a receiver; the sexual part is accepted purely and with all respect. A ritual form of massages is its deepest part and allows all participants to get out of their daily reality and have a festive mood so they can celebrate their body and enjoy their own sexuality with dignity and beauty. This celebrating allows reaching the feeling of acceptance during which you enjoy a maximum experience and feeling from the massage, while the acceptance can be a healing experience for some. During tantra massages a real encounter of a giver and a receiver happens, which is in contrast with a classical healing process based on impersonal diagnosis.

Another corner stone of tantra massages is holistic approach. A ritual massage covers the whole person without avoiding any parts. It respects also sexuality and awakens its energy and life vital force and includes all bodily expressions; breathing, voice, movement, ejaculation or tears, all possible ways to enjoy a sensual and mystical ritual or just a simple orgasm, everything here is all right and possible. Even the absence of any of the above mentioned expressions is fine and welcome. There is absolutely no pressure to perform whatsoever in tantra. Enjoying orgasm is not only essential through ejaculation, but the flow of sexual energy during massage is desired and stimulated. Each individual, a man or a woman, enjoy orgasm differently and that is respected at all times. Tantra massage allows everyone to enjoy the energies of Shiva or Shakti and feel the divine part in every human being. Perception of everydayness with all its projections declines during a massage at the expense of divine presence during the ritual. During tantra massages there is a conscious deliverance from common life, the space behind common perception opens up. It is a simple ritual of deliverance from ordinary problems and habits. What remains is a deep respect and mutual acceptance. We approach our clients with respect and expect the same from them.

Perception of sexuality in our Western culture is almost always connected with other daily matters such as relationships, love, guilt, urges, self- devotion, marriage, politics and others but sexuality in tantra massage is purely on its own as a sexual power. It is a strong unlimited movement of sexual energy that is the source of life. According to tantra teaching sexual attitude can be mechanical and simplistic. Yet sexuality is not an instrument to spiritual enlightenment. In other words tantra massage does not offer spiritual exploitation of sexuality. Actually tantra allows sexuality to be what it is, what it was and what it always remains; a sensual, sensitive and sense absorbing act. No more, no less.
