The Tantra and Therapeutic Massage

22 April, 2015 (09:02) | Beijing blog | By: admin

Tantra comes from the Sanskrit root tan or ‘stretch’ and a Tantra massage may be looked at in two ways. A therapeutic massage is more a clinical massage concentrating on wellness. So there is a difference between a Tantra and therapeutic massage.
The Tantra can be two different types of massage. One form of the tantric┬ámassage is to encourage the energy flow and stimulate the whole body. The person getting the massage should slowly go into a deep level of relaxation and come away with a sense of well being. It is an accumulation of ideas and practices by ritual in a search for perfection and what is called magical power. This would be a massage that is very similar to a regular massage with the result also one of total relaxation. However a normal massage probably isn’t billed as achieving magical power. It would be performed in a spa or massage parlor.
That is one form of a Tantra, and therapeutic massage is defined as massage that is performed in a clinic type of setting. This may be a doctor’s office or even a hospital or nursing home. The other form of Tantra not therapeutic massage in terms of a clinic type setting is also called a Tantra massage.
The type of setting for this type of Tantra massage is also derived from the Sanskrit but the terms that are used in this massage are also of Sanskrit meaning. This massage uses Yoni for vagina and Lingam for the penis but is translated to somewhat mean wand of light. This type of massage is not necessarily a prelude to sex but as way to achieve that deep level of relaxation. It is often performed on a partner but by definition the end result is not sexual intercourse. It is however basically a genital massage but it begins as does an ordinary massage with warm oil that is rubbed over the entire body. One partner may do this one night and the other partner the next night. It seems as that end result may be the person is so relaxed that they fall asleep.
There are certain methods that are described for partners engaging in this type of massage which are much like the way one would stimulate or arouse another partner, depending whether they are working on the Yoni or the Lingam. In some instances this could be therapeutic in cases of an inability to perform during sex.
The therapeutic massage at a spa is not the same as a therapeutic massage in a clinic situation. In this case the massage is often used for chronic pain or health issues. It would be used for sports injuries or repetitive stress injuries. The masseuse would have specific training for in giving relief for specific tissue injuries. This type of massage would be performed frequently for a period of time until the injury has improved. If often requires a clinical assessment before any procedures are performed.
