It is considered the most sensual and most erotic of all massage methods. Most of Western massage are based on the Swedish system. Tantra uses hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. A variety of erotic strokes in certain areas is used to work on the skin tissues and particularly to muscles and erotic areas. Your masseuse will be naked apart from a bikini and you will be naked so that you can enjoy the sensation of touch and feel the erotic touch and strokes. This is a sensual massage but it is not a sexual massage.
As the name suggests, Tantra works on deeper sensual layers of muscles and connective tissue. It helps to release tight muscles, increase the oxygen flow, eliminate toxins and held tension points with the result of more elastic muscles while giving you a feeling of pleasure. It is recommended to people having a local muscular pain, caused from incorrect postural position or an improper physical effort.. Some of the strokes used are the same for the classic massage, but the movements are slower and the pressure is deeper. In order to work deeper on the tissues the therapist may use elbows, forearm, kneading with thumb and knuckles and this will create a closer feeling between you and your masseuse.
History of Tantra
It is an extremely effective therapy that has evolved in the East. Using firm, gentle, rhythmic movements that involve acupressure points, the Tantric massage treatment treats the scalp, face, neck, shoulders and upper arms.It is extremely effective for treating stress because it works on the areas of the body most affected (shoulders and upper back, neck and head), inducing a wonderful feeling of calmness and well being. Although the treatment focuses on the upper torso and head the effects are felt throughout mind and body.
