To Touch or not to Touch?

To Touch or not to Touch?

Here’s a question that is often spoken – and often unspoken. ‘Is it OK to touch while receiving touch?’

The answer is to remember that the guiding principle in Tantric massage is to work toward total relaxation of the mind and body.

Massage can have the effect of seeming to magnify natural energy. As any massage progresses, and the mind starts to relax and wander, the body can energize, physically. It’s natural to want to reach out and transfer some of that energy. In doing so the energy delivered in the massage is further enhanced.

The fact is that energy is built as much by touching as by being touched. Receiving touch without the opportunity to appropriately respond can remove a critical part of the experiential potential.

Of course it is entirely acceptable and possible to enjoy a full body massage without exploring reciprocal touch. Tantric massage practice, however, is one of the few approaches that recognizes that complete relaxation can also include the engagement of our potential to distribute energy as well as receive it.

Happily, Tantric massage will always look to find the most complete opportunities for a relaxed state of mind and body.

Massage, Fitness & Curiosity


Squeeze - CopyTantra, Fitness & Curiosity

This email has been on my list for inclusion for the past year. Now seems a good time to post it.
It’s an email from a reader who explains that after a year of regular relaxation massage he became increasingly motivated to improve his body image and state of mind. The content speaks for itself. I haven’t edited his remarks, which convey a sincere message.
He wonders whether his thoughts are ‘tantric enough’. I replied to him when he wrote, saying that his experiences were entirely reflective of Tantric possibilities.
Regaining a physical comfort level is very much a matter of continued realistic commitment and motivation.
Tantric practice can promote and combine a relaxed state of mind with a non-judgemental physical awareness, and can contribute to a progressive and lasting change in outlook and health.
Tantric practice makes no claims based on accepted scientific method but the following email does suggest that happy endings come in many disguises.

Hey Colin, You might like this for your web site.

Its the new year 2014 and I remembered my new year rezolutions a year ago. It was to lose some weight and try to get fitter.

I am a family man with grown kids out of the home and I had become a couch cabbage. I’d tried jogging and gyms and all sorts of things but nothing seemed to stick so I’d almost given up. I got talking to a casual friend who seemed in better shape than me and he said he’d been going for massage regularly for a couple of years and he’d found that it made him more active and also relaxed in himself at the same time.

I thought he might be joking with me like he was suggesting something wierd and he might be talking about ladies and happy endings but he wasn’t although he said so far the results had been happy.

He gave me the number of the guy that he’d been visitng for massage and I called it after feeling even more over stuffed from Christmas. I did mention my friend and that I was looking to get in better shape. It seemed a bit unlikely that massage could do what I wanted but my friend seemed to have become fitter and so maybe there was a secret. Also I was a bit nervous about getting massage from another guy but I was curious in my mind and I’ll admit to some mixed feelings.

Long story short I made an appointment and had a great complete massage. The masseur – I’ll skip his name – didn’t make the slightest personal remark although I told him that I was feeling overweight and tired. The time on the table was completely relaxing and I rebooked another visit.

I visited many times in the year and found that because I had to be undressed during the sessions which I began to enjoy I began to take more interest in my weight and as the sessions relaxed me I started to become more interested in diet and excercize.

I dropped more than 10 lbs. during the year. I think it was a result of the massage making me more conscious of myself and motivating me even though my massage buddy never made a remark. I get on well with him and I think I’ve found the same experience as my friend.

Not sure if this is tantric enough for you but it might also work for other guys who can’t find things that work. I won’t mention all of the massage techniques that I’ve enjoyed but they beat a lot of other excercize options. Also no problem with having a guy massaging me. I’ll just say that it’s really helped me relax and enjoy my curious side.

Massage & Group Experiences

Massage & Group Experiences

I received this email from a reader who has recently moved to the area.

He describes his Tantric and massage experiences and is continuing them now that he has moved.

His thoughts seem to express experiences and ideas that so many people have little opportunity to actualize. He did call me and has visited. I’m posting his email with his permission and with thanks to him for describing his journey so far.

Tantra is about safely sharing energy, and that energy can often be experienced, enhanced and enjoyed in small groups and intimate Tantric gatherings.

Hello Colin,

You don’t know me and I’ve been reading your blog for some time now.

I’ve recently moved to your area from Toronto and have been looking for something to replace the tantric massage classes and visits that have worked well for me before I moved and maybe you can help.

I’m a 52 year old male suffering from work stresses and general lack of attention. Two years ago I was surfing the web one evening looking for ways to relax without tearing my life apart. I came across a guy describing tantric massage as a way to relax and safely experience some human contact and touch.

I made contact with him and over a few months made visits for massage. I also learned more about tantra and its roots and possibilities. Around that time I also found your blog which seemed to describe a lot of what I was experiencing with my local practitioner so I saved your contact information until now.

I became very comfortable with my Toronto practitioner and the opportunities to visit him, and shedding my clothes seemed also to have the effect of shedding some of the stresses of my work. Of course the touch and massage helped.

I won’t get into much detail here but after a few visits my practitioner suggested I become more familiar with tantric possibilities and that he had other clients who would like to share and exchange their experiences with others and would I like to attend small group gatherings. He said that it wasn’t something that would appeal to everybody but things I’d said suggested I might enjoy the experiences and company of others who enjoy tantra and its energy.

I trusted his thinking and visited his studio one weekend and was introduced to 2 other guys who were of similar age and circumstances to myself. We enjoyed a relaxing couple of hours after introducing ourselves. They’d both been receiving tantric massage for some time and we quickly discovered that we were motivated by very similar needs in looking to find some pleasure in touch and tantric techniques.

We also found that we shared the same enjoyment of the clothes free opportunities that tantra stimulates and its chances to freely and safely engage with similar energies.

I continued to visit for massage and also enjoyed the group visits when they could be arranged.

I’m happy to have moved but am looking to pick up where I left off and wondered whether you can provide or suggest anything similar to what I’ve described.

I hope to meet you one day.

Mindful Massage & Sensual Escape

Tantric massage is a conscious, sensual,  full body experience.

It’s a flow of positive energy enjoyed in a warm and safe environment.

It’s a space where the clock and the phone can be turned off. Where the shower can be long. Where the direction is relaxed, genuine and personal.

This is unrushed time that allows a slow and mindful experience of heightened awareness. It’s time away from reality where relaxation and re-discovery are possible.

To find out more  please do read further in the blog and call or email.

Safe Space

Safe Space

The search for safe and intimate comfort can be challenging.

The possibilities and choices to find such comfort can seem to be frustratingly limited.

The occasional enjoyment of bodywork and massage is satisfying but often all too brief.

As acceptance grows that, as individuals, our sexual and sensual identities are broad and legitimate, so, also, do the opportunities to enjoy and actualize seem frustratingly narrow.

While the virtual world of internet and keyboard driven images can help in beginning to focus preferences, it’s not an environment that makes it easy to discretely  and safely enjoy one’s newly discovered ‘self’ in the physical world.

The virtual world simply does not reciprocate the energy pounded into the keyboard.

This year, more than ever, opportunities have emerged that have allowed visitors, here, to take the time, safely and openly, to explore and enjoy aspects of their sensuality that are, all too often, difficult to express in less open contexts.

The chance to laze and gaze in a shared and non-judgmental environment, where no clock is ticking, is difficult to discover.

While it shouldn’t be so difficult to find comfortable space to share thoughts and preferences, when sensual self discovery is the goal the choices can be very limited.

I’ve heard this frequently over the past couple of years from wonderful visitors who have returned to share and spend extended overnight visits.

Such visits have provided a chance to temporarily exclude the outside world and often to actualize thoughts and newly discovered preferences – to build confidence and bring new peace of mind.

While this will always be a place of timeless massage it can also be a place of endless sensuality, self expression, company and comfort.

Beats any impersonal hotel, airbnb or website.

Just email or call to enjoy.
