Tantric massage is beginning to be more known in the west as increasing numbers of people realise that this is an amazing healing modality and not an erotic sexual massage. Tantric massage practitioners should be able to produce evidence of the qualification recieved and the training school , this narrows down the search for a therapist in this field. Having said this there are many great Masters and Healers that were not certified by anyone .
When you have spoken to the therapist you should feel more relaxed about making your choice as your intuition will allert you to any unease , there is always time for a connection before the massage commences , a good therapist will put you at ease and encourage you to ask any questions and voice your concerns as a positive ressonance enhances the massage effects.
The practitioner should be able to seperate their ego from the experience and portray the healing experience as being already a potential in the being and that the practitioner simply guides the energy for transformation .
It can help to have an intention before receiving the massage , you might be looking for an expanded energetic experience, reconnect to your sensuality, heal trauma both mentally and physical, connect spiritualy, and many other individual or collective intentions.
Please feel free to ask any questions prior to booking .

Human Beings experience vibration all the time in everyday life without making the connection to the health of the body and the energetic sheaths, every layer of the physical plane is a manifestation of the Divine and is all part of the grand Divine plan vibrating at different frequencies . Many yogis have experienced first hand the divine vibratory nature of all creation by chanting Sanskrit mantras that form vibrational frequencies, it is known that chanting for many hours can be a powerful and transformative thing and some skilled meditators have seen with their developed third eye, colours, waves of light and sacred geometric shapes that the Sanskrit syllables make, in other words " Sound " can be seen with the third eye. To prepare the body for deeply relaxed states of being and focused concentration of the mind sound vibration can be made by various instruments, the sacred and spiritual Rudra Veena instrument produces a vibration of divine harmony as do Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls , gongs and many others can produce a beautiful and healing vibration that penetrates the whole of the being. We can deliberately bathe our self with the healing vibrations of sound even the rustling of the leaves of a tree, birds singing or the sounds of water infiltrate our being, our bodies are nourished by the sounds of nature and we can also observe the contrast of toxic vibrational sounds and the effect they have on our mind and bodies , for example the sounds of harsh words , mechanical tools and many others that are usually man made noise pollution. Here is a quote from Christopher Sartain from his book " The sacred science of Yoga and the five Koshas" which adds a sense of poetry and magic to the explanations and descriptions " All of creation is God singing everything into existence in a divine harmony of different pitches , tones, and vibrations that coalesce into the forms that we experience in normal consciousness. The universe is a song
." I am offering a one to one deeply relaxing sound healing sessions with a variety of singing Bowls and instruments that are tuned to the frequency of the bodies chakra systems, the vibrations can harmonise and activate the energetic vortexes of the body, and the energetic koshas , namely the Pranamayakosha and Manomayakosha. Combined with Nidra yoga this healing modality can be very transformative on many levels of your being . Downloaded to view is a minute clip that shows how the vibration of a Tibetan Singing bowl effects water, as the human body is made up of approx. 70% water the demonstration speaks for itself. https/youtu.be/rkwSIcczlw0
Healing Modalities can offer many beautiful effects and health benefits , but, in no way replace or act as a short cut to a long term spiritual practice which would involve a yoga practice ,meditation, and purification practices. The promise of activating chakras or balancing chakras would certainly be misleading as the results would depend on the clients level of health and other factors.

Most people have heard the word Tantra in context of the Karma Sutra , but only a small percentage of Tantra deals with the subject of sex, maybe 5 to 10% of the teachings. so Tantra is mainly misunderstood in the west and put in the same box as erotic massage which has clouded from view some of the most potent transforming teachings on the planet today. This has led to blurred boundries and some confusion to what is genuine Tantric massage , hopefully this blog will clarify some of those misconseptions . Firstly, Tantra is not a religion , rather a teaching for an evolution of consciousness, and tantra is a path for those that want to advance quickly spiritually. Tantrics studied energy and all the aspects of energy , sexual energy being the most potent and powerful energy, sexual energy can be used for spirituality, so the tantrics studied this extensively, instead of using sexual energy to make life, they used this energy to accelerate individual spiritual evolution. Tantric sexual teachings are considered extremely powerful teachings and can be a spiritual path on its own . Tantric massage was not an ancient practice , this has been developed to act as a bridge to assist peoples of today in our modern world to attain spiritual mastery and self realisation . The teachings I have recieved are from Somanander Tantra school who developed tantric massage from authentic Tantra sexuality and Ancient Ayurvedic massage techniques.
The teachings I have received combines massage with energy healing , using energy in massage increases the massage effects and the healing potential . Genital massage can be part of the practice, this means that both the yoni and Lingham are both Massaged , however, it is not always necessary and can be opted out off, these very powerful and potent organs with many reflexology points can trigger many pleasurable and energetic effects. Tantra massage can release energy blockages , every person has energy blockages of some kind , where energy is blocked the energetic flow is blocked, if left the blockage can develop into a physical issue.
The body can store past and current traumas, these can stay in the being for years even decades, the healing of these blockages can lead to deep healing Subliming releases. Some releases can deliver emotional and mental purification effects, especially in woman experiencing emotional release, the energy used in Tantric massage will start to push out various physical and mental blockages a person may have.
As most humans in the 21 century have toxins and impurities,held in the physical and energetic sheaths , purification effects the body in a physical way, for example nausea, headaches, pimples, emotional and mental release and realisations etc this is a normal response and a good sign that purification has taken place.
I look forward to delivering this life affirming therapy.

You've mastered the selfie, now master thy self
The 21st Century is a time of scientific abundance with new studies and research revealing deeper knowledge of ancient teachings that once may have seemed fantastical and beyond our limited understanding, with a revival of yoga and meditation practices we are globally evolving a new understanding of what it means to be spiritually conscious and utilise these ancient teachings from some of greatest minds the planet has witnessed.
The Chakra system hover above the human body in the Pranamayakosha and are energetically connected to the spine, is revealed as a set of bioelectric vortices that harmonise massive nerve bundles and are controlled by the endocrine gland secretions, the 7 chakras are indicators of the harmony, health and balance in the body and have corresponding yin and yang polarities , tantra massage is one of the ways one can identify where there is a underlying emotional and health issue related to one of the chakras. When our chakras are unbalanced it leads us to make unwise decisions and we can feel depressed and indecisive. The study of the chakras is to be encouraged as this is a basic summery , helpful to those embarking on a spiritual path .
Muladhara - the root chakra , is associated with the earth element and our Vitality , a sense of belonging and confidence , when out of balance the person feels low energy, low self esteem , resulting in fear , this can lead to weight issues , constipation , when balanced energy flows freely .
Svadhisthana - the sacral Chakra , , is associated with the water element, the emotional centre of the body generating pleasure and deep connection , sexual desire, creative impulses , can be blocked by feelings of shame and guilt. When the sacral chakra is healthy , people feel fully engaged with life , alive, energetic and spontaneous.
Manipula - The navel chakra. associated with the fire element, a healthy third chakra will manifest stability, courage, willpower and strength , with an emphasis on the ability to manifest one hopes and dreams , a weak and unmanaged manipula will absorb energies from everything and can manifest as hypersensitivity creating health and emotional issues . Imbalances can manifest as lack of self confidence leading to aggressive behaviour and domination of others.
Anahata - The heart Chakra . associated with the air element . The heart chakra is a masterpiece of creation with a potential to create harmonies and vibrations . The heart chakra when open and flourishing can transform pain and suffering , radiate unconditional love , empathy and selflessness when we are heartbroken by love or grief the heart energies suffer.
Vishuddha - The throat chakra . associated with the element of Ether. The throat , the confessional , inhibited by lies, oppression , when we communicate well with others both written and verbal we are able to communicate effectively and constructively for the greater good and create harmony for ourselves and others.
Ajna - The Third eye .associated with mind and mental facilities. The third eye ( the pineal gland ) psychic abilities, inner wisdom and intuitive powers. This chakra is particularly related to our imaginations and dreams , blockages can cause migraines , insomnia and anxiety.
Sahasrara - crown of the head . Pure cosmic energy and directly connects us to the highest self within us.
When we are aware of our subtle energies we are able to master ourselves and live to our optimal potential.

Energy , Frequency and Vibration
When toxic energy is trapped in the light body it obstructs the free flow of energy, frequency and vibration causing pain and dis-ease. To visualise this imagine a free flowing stream with a large rock obstructing the flow of water. The water finds away round and over the rock , but eventually other debris and pebbles are trapped too and create a dam blocking the flow and only a slight trickle remains. Now apply this visual to the flow of energy in and around the light body .
The obstruction manifests as a result of unresolved and unhealed trauma, grief, deep sadness , anxiety etc . An accumulation of stored and unreleased emotional pain collects and begins to affect the harmony of mind body and soul.
If we look deeply into suffering we can begin to notice the pain and obstruction of flow in others and can recognise that when our energy is blocked the relationship with ourselves, others suffer as well.
Eckart Tolle explains ' Pain bodies ' both individually and collectively. Simply put each of has inherited residue pain of past traumas. Collectively pain manifests like ripples in water for generations. War is an example of suffering that has been inflicted on humanity or tragedies resulting in the loss of heritage and belonging .
It takes bravery and commitment to undo pain and suffering as it is in us all. Collectively we suffer until we become our own masters and look inwards for healing and clear energetic obstacles. This is freedom. To bring an end to our suffering and release it into the light to be made visible and make space for new energy and flow without obstruction . Our bodies can then self regulate and heal. There are many tools available to you to begin your journey. Yoga, sound healing , reading books that help you recognise who you are and who you are not. Tantra massage , meditation and many other routes to inner knowledge, to be under the spiritual guidance of a Teacher or Guru with a lineage of great teachers is the optimum route .
If you are interested in digging deeper I recommend The Power of Now or New Earth by Eckart Tolle. For a scientific perspective research Nikola Tesla ( 1856- Physicist) .My teacher Somananda has an extensive authentic reading list on his web page http://somananda.org/upcomi...

Soft Porn addictions.
Before I alienate any readers, I am firstly going to point out that this is my opinion and my perspective based on talking to men honestly about their porn use and considering the results of professional research. This writing is in no way meant to criticize or cast judgement.
Prior to the internet accessing Porn seemed to be a grubby pursuit based around sneaking peeks at `Dirty Mags’ even calling the magazines ‘Dirty’ casts a shadow of shame and titillation, woman in these magazines possibly considered bad, lose or immoral , an opinion shared by woman as well as men. Shadowy peep shows and men in Macs prowling seedy cinemas cast a looming shadow over our nation’s supressed sexual identity .
Big Fanfare, the internet ! and the historical sexualisation of woman and girls continued at a rapid rate, adverts look like soft porn , women become objectified at an alarming rate to the point where we are no longer conscious of the control and subliminal messages fed to us by TV adverts , Music Videos etc . Sex sells, but at the cost of desensitising us and further sexualisation and objectification of the female body to the point that woman are now held accountable for showing nipples in public to feed their babies. Women who show nipples on social media are censored, mens are not..this is where the hypocrisy of our society adds to the frustration of woman who want to re-claim the Goddess and the respect that encourages in us all.
The gratification porn provides is so easy, young boys must be terrified at the prospect of real life interactions and men in relationships can by-pass all the emotions associated with a deep connection. The ease at which porn is accessed feeds the hungry sexual energies which quell the fire. This pursuit can become addictive, providing instant pleasure until the next time and most men admit to their sexual urges as being disruptive and frustrating. Russell Brand recently posted a brutally honest blog about his thoughts on the porn industry and the struggles he had with sex addiction, and his realisation as a conscious man that his primal urges and porn use where causing him conflict to his spiritual growth and how he felt about women.
As a woman who is actively supporting men and woman to reconnect to themselves through Tantra massage I am asking them to consider a new way of connecting to and exploring sensuality and sexuality. The focus of arousal is the self and the deep connection to the inner self, the reminder that the body is capable of far more enjoyment and sexual freedom and release than ever considered
Porn asks us to contract and turn in on ourselves for pleasure, when our deepest primal urges naturally draw us to each other to explore expand and integrate our sensuality and passion .
There are a growing number of men of all ages who are feeling this disillusionment and detachment from their sexuality and have rediscovered themselves through the practice of tantra massage .
Porn has always been part of culture. Let us ask ourselves to be mindful of its purpose and what the habitual use of porn does to the real life relationships with ourselves and the women in our lives.

Tantra Massage – A Reunion Party
How many of you reading this are feeling that despite following all the rules laid down for us by establishment and Government, paying our bills, working hard, obeying and subduing our inner longings that we are collectively and individually unhappy.
The western concept of “ Having it all “ consume and you will be happy, look like this and you will be happy etc.. is a misconception , no authority, religious bodies, Mainstream media, anyone that tells you how to feel or be is not cultivating your happiness, compassion, unity or self-love. This is your personnel responsibility to become aware of and reconnect to your inner guru, your soul or spirit, the essence of you , the real you.
There has never been a time that you have been separate from your soul you are already on a spiritual path, that journey began when you were born to this world, it is impossible to separate from your spirit, it’s just merely that you have lost that connection . You will not find deeper happiness in a relationship and obtaining stuff, lasting peace and happiness in our lives comes from the consciousness and awareness of ourselves and others as one.
Tantra massage is one way that the body, mind and soul all re-connect , a reunion party ! Here in the space of peace and deep connection can the soul speak to you and remind you who you are . Each soul in the world knows we are all here to help each other to remember and wake each other from the sleep of illusion.
All beginnings in life, the roads and signs that answer the call of our soul should not be ignored , the soul is the essence of all humanity embodied , it knows everything and guided you to read this and enquire further.
“ The great awareness comes slowly , piece by piece. The path of spiritual growth is a path of life long learning. The experience of spiritual power is basically a joyful one” M Scott Peck

‘ May our hands be windows of feeling and our eyes un-seeking, open. “
In the middle of each palm of our hands is the hand Chakra, hands can be both expressive and receptive and can channel energy that flows freely from the heart and through the palms.
When I am massaging my heart syncs with the receiver and a feeling of love and peace radiates through my body, I can feel my hands sizzling and buzzing with an energy and often after massaging my heart is so full of love and peace that the benefit is shared and radiates in all areas of life.
The heart Chakra relates to the ability to channel the internal world (Expression, love, art, healing etc.) to the external world, healthy hand chakras confer a natural flow to others and a natural flow of external expression.
Using sacred shapes made with my hands during massage and Mudras (meaning to seal the intention) is part of the Tantra tradition.
So when you feel my hands, I am touching you with all that is in my heart.
“ Mudras are the sign language of God. They infuse divine energy or draw it to us like an antenna. “

Ritual And Tantra
Mantra-Yantra = Tantra
I have included the ritual I have experienced in my yoga practice into my Tantra practice as the two are interconnected , before each massage I take my clients through guided breathing, inhalation with holding at the top of the breath before the exhale, this helps connect to the body to the now. Using essential oils during this practice also focuses the mind to one central point of sensation and concentrates the attention back to self and the present moment.
Savasana ( Corpse pose ) happens at the end of a Yoga practice is a ritual that connects us back into our bodies and re connects our energies, I place my clients in Savasana at the end of the massage as it restores the body and allows one to settle into the now more fully, it allows the mind to integrate the sensations of the massage. Lying in Corpse pose can be quite difficult at first as lying awake in stillness on our backs is not usual, however, the cossetting aspect of this ritual hopefully makes it an enjoyable and nurturing experience.
Here are some life affirming benefits that a simple savasana delivers ;
1. Stress relief.
Muscle contraction or tension can melt away as you become aware of each part of your body, when the body relaxes so does the mind and visa versa.
2. Calms Agitation
Sometimes after massage and having to drop back into the real world can feel too intense, savasana is a slow wake up.
3. Decreases blood pressure.
4. Increased memory and improved concentration.
5. Increased focus.
So next time you feel stressed, lay down on the floor, close your eyes, try rhythmic deep breathing , feel the support of the earth beneath you and melt your body into the ground, its that simple.
