Tantra is a way to reach enlightenment and ecstasy through sacred sexuality, and tantra massage employs sexual energy to attain a higher state of consciousness.
Skilled tantra massage therapists, or lovers who study the art, use specific sensual touches such as lightly running fingertips along the entire body, to awaken a dormant energy field within the body. When aroused, this energy field is believed to unite lovers in an ecstatic experience and is said to allow trapped physical and mental pain to escape from the body.
In the realm of love, the past and future are of no significance. Only in the present can one live as a united being.
When performed as a couple, the pillars of Tantric massage include visual connection, synchronization of circular respiration, and the tantric spiral hug which raises the Kundalini energy. In the case of men, they become aware of their own multiple orgasms by learning Lingam, and anal stimulation from the prostate or seminal vesicle and through ejaculation contention. In the case of women, it includes, Yoni and g-spot massage, cervix and vagina pressures, pelvic floor and uterus muscle contractions.
