tantric massages

Tantric massage and sexual healing

Tantric massage is a style of massage that’s very sensual by nature. It’s an art form that teaches us how to embrace our natural sensuality, lust and encourages us to explore our erotic side. The massage can be performed all over the body. It is typically carried out naked and works to stimulate the whole body, spreading the soft, soothing sensations out from head to toe. Because you and the masseuse are both naked, you are metaphorically closer to each other. A tantric massage will build a strong spiritual bond between you and the masseuse, exploring your most intimate parts that are often difficult to uncover under normal circumstances.

How does a tantric massage work?

Tantric massage is an extremely popular type of therapy and for good reason. Typically, it begins with a series of ritual-like, meditative acts. The therapist may sit cross-legged opposite you and close your eyes as you try and sync your breathing. She may show you ways to use breathing to control your mind, body and emotions. Once you’re relaxed, you would lie down so the masseuse can begin the massage session.

She will cover your body in massage oils and sensually rub it all over your body. She will use slow strokes, using the power of suspense and gradual build-up to excite the body and heighten the experience. Tantric massage is about control, spiritual connections and intense tension releases. Sexual arousal is likely, but you shouldn’t fight it. Tantric massage isn’t like other erotic massages. The goal isn’t to orgasm but it’s a pleasant by-product. Instead of using pleasure as an incentive, tantric massage uses pleasure to focus the mind and exercise self-control.

If you do experience sexual arousal or orgasm, don’t fight against it. Arousal puts your body and mind in a unique state. When you’re in this state of mind, your most intimate thoughts and vulnerable feelings can be accessed – something which cannot usually be done under normal circumstances. As for orgasm, it is one of the best ways to release stress because it’s so pleasurable that it washes away any traces of negative thoughts.

Tantric massage and sexual therapy

Tantric massage is a great form of sexual therapy because it’s so highly intimate and means both the massage receiver and the masseuse to lay themselves bare and allow for deep emotional exploration. For singles or couples who are suffering from intimacy problems or lack of sex drive, tantric massage is a great option. It allows for total physical and emotional exploration, which means you can discover new things about your body and self that may surprise you.

The therapist will create a massage session that’s catered carefully to your needs and desires but stays within your comfortable limits. Comfort and relaxation is very important because it means your body and mind is at ease while the massage is being performed. This heightened state of relaxation allows to feel totally refreshed and rejuvenated after the massage because your body and mind ‘recharges’ itself when you are fully relaxed.

Tantric massage is so sensual that it taps into your sexual side. It awakens energy from all over the body, from life to sexual energy. Tantric massage excites sexual energy, arouses you and increases sex drive. Simultaneously, it helps you to learn to control your drive and conserve your energy so you can enjoy a more fulfilling and satisfying sex life. If you are suffering from sexual issues like low drive/libido, erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, tantric massage can help you overcome these problems without the need for medications or counselling. It is even more effective when combined with more erotic types of massage such as lingam or yoni massage. A series of specialised tantric massage treatments can dramatically improve your sex and love life. You will feel liberated – physically, emotionally and spiritually.

A masseuse’s perspective

So that’s our general outtake on tantric massage, but what’s it like from a professional’s perspective? We approached Lucy, one of our tantric masseuses and asked her what she thinks…

What does tantric massage focus on?

Lucy: So many things happen during a tantric massage, but ultimately it’s about using your body’s sensuality to access the brain. These days, people are afraid to truly let go and a tantric massage is so arousing and stimulating that they have no choice but to run wild with the wind. The rush of sexual energy evoked during a tantric massage lets people feel freer, happier and more alive. When darkness rules your life, you feel as if you’re constantly under a stormy cloud and it affects the way you think. Tantric massage brings all of these painful feelings to the surface and releases them, whether that be through a verbal release or an orgasm.

Does a tantric massage actually help your clients?

Lucy: It’s difficult to say tantric massage completely cures my clients of their problems because of course, there are other factors at play. However, they have all said tantra has greatly helped them and they feel a lot better. I’ve seen people in various states of mental disarray, anguish and chronic stress. When they leave, they definitely walk with a new bounce in their step – like they’ve had a great weight lifted off their shoulders. And many of them return for repeat sessions. They say they feel far more comfortable in their skin, so tantric massage has long-lasting positive results.

Is tantric massage illegal?

Lucy: I get asked this a lot because tantric massage seems so sexual. There’s a negative stigma that surrounds this line of work and people can get very judgmental about it. But tantric massage is totally legal – it’s a legitimate therapy. I know that not everyone will understand, approve or believe that the therapy works, but it only takes one session to change your mind.

If you’re interested in a mobile tantric massage, we offer services from £140 an hour and you can find out more about this on our website here http://asia-massage.co.uk/tantric-massage-london/

A Massage For Every Mood

a massage for every mood

The beauty of being human is that we often experience a bunch of emotions all at once. Sometimes this is a nuisance but other times, it can be an exhilarating journey. This is particularly the case when you take advantage of this whirlwind of unpredictable emotions and guide them towards something worthy of a release. A massage is a wonderful example – not only do they help you release all of that pent-up stress, it’s also a great way to bond with your partner. Plus, getting to touch your partner’s naked body? Apart from foreplay, can you think of a more ideal prelude to sex? Massage is great at setting the mood for getting down and dirty.

If you’re not very well-versed in massage, there are many different types but the only ones you need to know if you want some sexy playtime are the erotic ones. Firm favourites in the red light districts and in porn, erotic Asian massages are wild, fun and sexy. But there’s actually more to them than just getting off and they’re about more than just happy endings. That’s why we’ve made this fun guide of erotic massages – what styles exist, what they consist of and what moods they’re best suited to. So if you want to know which massage will suit your mood, keep reading!

Happy ending massage

You'll have a happy face with one of our endings

Let’s start by diving straight into the deep end. A happy ending massage is one of the most well-known Asian massages and is infamous for its orgasmic releases. A ‘happy ending’ is another word for an orgasm or ejaculation. A simple Google search leads you to be greeted with lists of X-rated websites. Understandably, a happy ending massage doesn’t have the best of reputations.

However, there’s more to a happy ending massage than just an orgasm. Shocking, right? All sexually arousing massages are rooted in tantra, an Ancient Indian ritual that’s meant to rebalance the body’s energies and cause a tranquil state of mind. Now, tantric practitioners believe that the body is a vessel of energy and the energy flows through pathways known as meridians. When meridians become blocked and energy flow is disrupted, you are more likely to suffer from stress and other illnesses. Massage stimulates these meridians and resumes efficient energy flow. But what about the excess built-up energy? Well, that’s what the orgasms are for. Orgasms are physical manifestations of this stress-inducing energy – that’s why orgasms leave you feeling so relaxed. Plus, when you orgasm, your body releases endorphins like oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin and prolactin that work to calm, stabilise and relax the mind.

So what mood is a happy ending massage best for? If you’re feeling stressed.

Erotic massage

what mood is best for an erotic massage

Erotic massage is very similar in principle to a happy ending massage. In fact, a happy ending can be incorporated into any massage style. An erotic massage is one that specifically focuses on physically arousing the body. It may use more specialised techniques that are particularly focused on sexual arousal – even more than a happy ending massage. It is likely to use the whole body, not just the sexual organs to arouse. An erotic massage is very teasing – using a variety of ‘stop and start’ techniques that are meant to keep you on the edge of an orgasm. The masseuse will massage your entire body, switching between light finger pressure and deeper strokes, and alternating between your intimate areas and the rest of your body.

So what mood is an erotic massage best for? If you’re feeling playful.

Nuru massage

Nuru massages are very slippery

Now, a nuru massage is really the crème de la crème of Asian massages. You might have heard of it already because of its wildly erotic nature. Originating from Japan, it is a full body massage where the masseuse uses her body to massage you. Using a mixture of slides, grinds and glides, a nuru masseuse will use a special gel. This seaweed-based gel is specific to a nuru massage and is colourless, odourless and tasteless but very slippery. When mixed with warm water, it becomes the perfect thing which you can use to slide on.

A nuru massage isn’t something that you’ll just enjoy. It is guaranteed to blow your mind because it’s one of the best massages to experience the same levels of sexual pleasure as intercourse itself but without penetration. It’s extremely intimate as you can feel every inch of your partner’s body sliding tantalisingly against yours.

So what mood is a nuru massage best for? If you’re feeling wild and naughty.

Tantric massage

Tantric massages can give you bliss for hours

Another famous massage, a tantric massage is based on tantra. Tantric massage is probably one of the most basic Asian massages – it forms the foundations onto which many other massages sit on. If you master tantric massage, you’ve mastered them all. A tantric massage is very ritualistic and slow. It focuses on energy stimulation and transfer. As we’ve mentioned earlier, tantra theorises that the body is made up of energies and when these cannot flow freely, you are more likely to feel ill. Thus, tantric massage uses slow movements meant to encourage every single drop of these stagnant energies to start flowing freely again.

When you get a tantric massage, you might feel very frustrated because like an erotic massage, it is also very teasing. But unlike an erotic massage, it’s not totally about the arousal. It’s more about the spiritual experience and intimately bonding with your partner. When you orgasm, it’ll be like a rush of emotion and you’ll feel closer to your partner.

So what mood is a tantric massage best for? If you’re feeling romantic.

Sensual massage

Sensual massages really take the stress away

You might have heard of this style of massage too. As the name suggests, it’s about arousing the senses and contrary to what people tend to believe, a sensual massage isn’t actually the same as an erotic massage. A sensual massage is like a happy ending massage fused with aromatherapy. It uses aromatic essential oils, fragrant candles and incense to stimulate the senses. Light restraints like blindfolds might be used to heighten the senses so you can feel the sensations of the massage even more. A sensual massage is slow, like a tantric massage, and very romantic. You can use light, delicate movements to tease and arouse your partner. And because they’re blindfolded, you don’t have to feel self-conscious – they can’t see you.

So what mood is a sensual massage best for? If you’re feeling shy.

Lingam massage

lingam massages are slow and sensual

A lingam massage is directly linked to tantric massage. In Sanskrit, the word ‘lingam’ means penis. A lingam massage is literally a massage of the penis, making it a very erotic style. The massage is a way of worshipping the penis because practitioners believe the sexual organs are sacred due to the vital role they play in reproduction. A yoni massage is the female equivalent. The lingam massage isn’t just a simple hand job though – there are a lot of special techniques meant to gracefully arouse the body, take you back and forth from the edge of an orgasm and slowly bring you to release. It’s also very teasing so when you’re getting one, you’ll be putty in the masseuse’s hands.

So what mood is a lingam massage best for? If you’re feeling submissive.

Body to body massage

Skin to skin contact will make a massage more enjoyable

A body to body massage is extremely similar to a nuru massage. It’s also performed where the masseuse uses her body to massage the client. As well as using her hands to manipulate your tense body, the masseuse will slide, stroke and grind her naked body against yours. The main difference is a body to body massage uses massage oil or lotion while a nuru massage only uses gel. A body to body massage isn’t as slippery as a nuru, but it’s very silky and just as sensual. The combination of sensuous movements, the silky massage oil and the weight of the masseuse pressing down on your muscles makes a body to body massage a very satisfying therapy. In addition, the naked full body contact is very comforting. When we’re hurt or feeling down, one of our first instincts is to crave touch, whether it’s from someone else or ourselves (have you ever noticed we hug ourselves when we’re in pain?). Of course, someone else’s touch will always feel much better.

So what mood is a body to body massage best for? If you’re feeling lonely.

Prostate massage

Relax into your prostate massage

The prostate gland is a walnut shaped organ that plays an important role in the male reproductive system. The gland is responsible for producing prostatic fluid, one of the main components of semen. Prostatitis is a condition that leads to inflammation of the prostate due to build-up of fluid, causing painful/disrupted urination, painful ejaculation and discharge among other symptoms. It tends to affect men between the ages of 30 and 50. Some cases can be treated with antibiotics but many cannot. A prostate massage is one effective treatment for the latter (and also speeds up recovery when combined with medications) because it helps to release the built-up fluid in the gland. It involves a masseuse inserting a lubricated gloved finger into the rectum and gently massaging the sides of the prostate gland.

It sounds very daunting, but a prostate massage is as pleasurable as it is therapeutic. It can facilitate mental healing as well as physical healing. The prostate gland is also referred to as ‘the male g-spot’, so when you combine a lingam massage with a prostate massage, you can experience some pretty intense orgasms – the kind that touch your soul and shake your body inside and out.

So what mood is a prostate massage best for? If you’re feeling experimental.

Soapy massage

try a soapy massage

During the 1950s in Japan, laws changed and made prostitution illegal. The workers adapted by selling erotic body massages and sensual baths instead. A soapy massage was one of these adaptations. It’s where you share a bath or a shower with a masseuse and she will sensually massage you under the bubbles. It’s a great way to start off an Asian massage because the warm water will prepare your skin for the gels and oils, as well as relaxing you and helping you and the masseuse form an emotional connection.

So what mood is a soapy massage best for? If you’re feeling relaxed.

4 Hands massage

4 handds are often better than two for massages

When you think of a massage, you’d probably imagine being rubbed down by one masseuse. Well a 4 Hands massage is one where you get to experience the touch of two masseuses instead of one. If you thought a normal massage was relaxing, then you won’t be ready for the intense sensations of a 4 Hands massage. The two masseuses will work in sync with each other, their choreographed movements sending you into a state of mesmerisation and tranquillity. One will lead and the other will follow. Because there are two masseuses and an extra pair of hands, more of your body can be stimulated at the same time. This means that a 4 Hands massage feels so much more satisfying and leads to a greater release of tension. It’s particularly great for chronic stress.

As well as being deeply relaxing, a 4 Hands massage can also feel very naughty. Imagine a 4 Hands tantric massage or a 4 Hands lingam massage. You’re naked and alone with two naked masseuses. Feels a lot like a ménage a trois, right? You could be enjoying the sensual touch of your partner and another lady. Imagine how that could feel.

So what mood is a 4 Hands massage best for? If you’re feeling naughty.

an overview of swedish massage types

Everything you need to know about Swedish Massage

Most of you reading have probably heard of Swedish massage before, and even more of you have probably had one. After all, it is the most well-known massage style in the West. This style is based on the Western concepts of physiology and anatomy and is usually practiced in 50, 60, 75 or 90 minute sessions. A Swedish massage can be vigorous and stimulating or soothing and gentle, depending on the therapist’s style or the needs of the client. Whether you’re looking to ease some tension from your muscles or just want to relax, Swedish massage is a fantastic go to. Here’s everything you need to know about this classic style:

What happens during a typical massage session?

Most Swedish masseuses begin by lubricating the body with massage oil in order to perform various massage strokes. These techniques warm up the muscle tissue, relive knots, ease tension and break up any adhesions from the body. During a Swedish massage, clients are sometimes expected to be naked; but don’t let that put you off. Masseuses use towels to cover intimate areas and will only ever remove them for several minutes at a time if they need to access the buttocks. If you’re really shy, let your masseuse know. She will probably let you keep your underwear on!

Massage techniques

Generally speaking, Swedish massage uses more invasive massage techniques than other popular styles. Why, might you ask? Well, this is so that oxygenation of the blood is increased, metabolic waste is released and the heart rate is lowered.

1.    Petrissage

Petrissage- aka kneading. This is a deeper tissue style that is used to penetrate further into the muscles in the body. This is performed using the thumbs and the knuckles of the fingers, whereby the masseuse pushes into the muscles like a baker kneading bread.

2.    Effleurage

This technique is less strenuous, and is designed more for relaxation. Effleurage is essentially a series of stroking techniques that are used to cover large areas of the body. These sweeping motions can be light or firm, and are often performed using the palm of the hands and fingertips.

3.    Friction

Essentially, this technique is used to warm up the muscles. Masseuses rub their hands together in order to create heat, and then place the palms of their hands onto different parts of the body so that the muscles can become more relaxed.

4.    Vibration/ Shaking

This method is used to loosen up the muscles. It uses back and forth motions of the fingertips of the heels of the hands to loosen and relax the muscles.

5.    Tapotement/ Rhythmic Tapping

As you’ve probably deciphered for yourself, this method consists of tapping across the body using fists or cupped hands. This energises the muscles, but also relaxes them.

The health benefits

Believe it or not, Swedish massages aren’t commissioned purely for relaxation purposes. They’re also associated with a huge list of health benefits.

Pain Relief

A lot of athletes use Swedish massage- for one good reason. They’re great for relieving pain. If masseuses are informed of a particular injury before a session, she is usually able to tailor her style to accommodate an injury. Whether that’s by focusing on that particular area or simply easing off the pain, masseuses can reverse the effects of an injury.

Depression and Anxiety

Again, this style of massage doesn’t just encourage physical health benefits; it inspires mental ones, too. It is a known face that massage relaxes us- but most people overlook the fact that remaining relaxed is one of the key ingredients needed to tackle depression and anxiety. The techniques used during a Swedish massage encourage a number of chemicals and hormones to be released- all of which are closely linked to our happiness. Serotonin and oxytocin are hormones that literally make us feel happy. These powerful stimulants, known as the ‘love drugs’, play a massive role in our mental contentment. So basically, if you want to feel happy, get a Swedish massage.

Boosts the immune system

Aside from releasing chemicals, getting a Swedish massage will increase your white blood cell count. That might mean nothing to you, but they’re responsible for battling illness. The more white blood cells you have, the less likely you are to get sick.

Improves the skin

Swedish massage is essentially the equivalent of getting a full body facial for your skin. First of all, the massage oils used during a session or usually nourishing, and actually moisturise the skin. But deeper than that, the techniques performed during a Swedish massage increase blood flow to the skin, making the surface soft, smooth and more elastic.

Last minute tips

Drink Plenty of water afterwards- Although getting a Swedish massage involves little effort or movement by you, you’ll be surprised to learn that it’ll probably leave you feeling dehydrated. Swedish massage encourages toxins to be released from the body, and therefore uses up a great deal of water in order to do so. Remaining hydrated will make the benefits of the massage last far longer.
Don’t exercise afterwards- Getting a massage relaxes the muscles- it doesn’t prepare them for vigorous exercise. You’re essentially reversing the effects of the massage by working out, and you’ll probably injure yourself in the process, too. Do yourself a favour; don’t hit the gym after your session!

Avoid going back to work if you can

Getting a massage should be a relaxing experience, the effects of which should last hours, days or sometimes even weeks afterwards. However, heading back to the office right after a massage is a bad idea, because it’ll knock the relaxation right out of you! Always try and schedule in for a massage when you have no prior commitments following it. They can be expensive, so don’t waste your money.

There are many massages out there on the market that are good for different things, but you can always rely on a Swedish massage to relax your mind, body and soul.
