A Grieving Heart Heals
Taoist Erotic MassageThe Taoist tradition recognized sexual energy as a very powerful healing modality. By incorporating focused breath and relaxation, one could re-connect one’s physical being to one’s energetic self and re-balance and heal. Taoist Erotic Massage stems from that tradition. Taoist Erotic Massage is a form of sensual massage that has been developed and re-introduced in the western world by such healers and teachers as Joseph Kramer, PhD who founded the original Body Electric organization. He subsequently developed a curriculum for certifying Sexological Bodyworkers through the State of California . His work is on the forefront of legalizing the concept of Taoist Erotic Massage as a socially acceptable and very viable healing modality. Taoist Erotic Massage, when practiced in its purest form, teaches one to use sexual energy to reach states of higher consciousness by diverting the ejaculation response, thereby reaching altered states of consciousness. The methodologies of this form of sexual massage are often used to help recipients overcome sexual concerns such as premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction (ED), as well as uncomfortable pelvic floor pain and other challenges effecting our overall well being. It is also a sexual massage modality that honors prostate massage as an integral and important aspect of male sexual wellness, without regard to gender preference.
Tantra Sensual MassageTantra Sensual Massage, is a very spiritual and ceremonial form of sensual massage that takes both giver and receiver into another world. The sensual massage incorporates the entire body and coaxes the sexual energy into every pore and every cell. Tantra Sensual Massage is expansive and erotic. The erotic is transformed into divine bliss. Tantra Sensual Massage is about the dance of Sexual Self in relationship to another or others. The Tantrika celebrates the body and soul including sexual self. The Tantra Sensual Massage celebrates god and goddess energy in self and in the other. The goddess’s Yoni (beautiful flower), sometimes also called Shakti’s Garden is touched tenderly with fingers, mouth, nipples and the soft tip of lingham (penis). The honoring of the god’s (Shiva's) lingham is done with reverence and love. In the Tantra form of erotic massage, the participants represent the embodiment of god and goddess energy – Shakti and Shiva. Sensual Massage to the Tantra practitioner is a Dance of Unconditional Love which culminates in Sacred Union – the joining of divine feminine to divine masculine. The good news about sensual/sexual bodywork is that one does not have to be “trained” to do it. For the most part, one must let go of all that one has learned about sex and all of its trappings. One must be able to just let go and allow who he or she is to come forth in a sacred way – touching to feel rather than touching to heal. That is Sacred Touch. The bad news about sensual/sexual bodywork when it claims to be massage and uses said term, in the United States and some other countries, is illegal and subjects the professional practitioner to a federal offense of practicing medicine without a license.
