FAQ Tantric Massage
What does a typical Tantric Massage session involve?
All sessions are designed to flow and meet your needs. Sessions can be 1 to 4 hours in length, which includes a consultation. The session content will vary depending on the length of session booked. Sessions may include meditations, beautiful connection rituals, body honouring, breath work and a combination of bodywork and massage. I use a range of approaches and techniques allowing you to connect to your physical and energetic body. We work to release tension and access deeper energy. When the massage has finished there will be time to relax, and integrate becoming grounded before you leave.
What age do I need to be for a Tantric Massage?
To connect with a Tantric Massage you need to be over 21 years old
Is there physical contact in a Tantric Massage Session?
Yes – as long as you are open and comfortable with this then session includes touch and massage. Touch will be used as I work with your physical body and energy. However please remember at all times these sessions are about you and there are lots of things that can be explored within tantra rituals, breath work and meditations which do not involve touch.
Within the session the energy is very much about you receiving so there is no need to exchange any touch with me. If you were to move into exchanging touch this would move you away from your experience. The session is a space for you to surrender and allow yourself to receive.
Do I need to take my clothes off in the Tantric Massage session?
All sessions are tailored to the clients needs and what is comfortable for you. When we move into massage the removal of clothing is invited. Please be aware that although touch can be felt through clothing the experience you feel within your energy will very different to that directly on the skin. Massage directly on the skin is more powerful and energy will move more freely BUT these sessions are about you. There are lots of things that can be explored within tantra rituals, breath work and meditations which do not involve you removing your clothes.
Does the Tantric Massage practitioner take their clothes off?
The journey is taken together and I feel it is very important to create a space of connection and unity and. I usually work in a sarong but again we will work within your boundaries.

A consultation and consent form for all sessions must be signed and will be discussed before the start of any session. The consultation can be done online leading up to the session or in person before the session. This consultation will support what does and doesn’t happen during a session and will enable you to explore your boundaries and understand how the session may run. It is a requirement that you read and complete the consent form thoroughly and confirm your understanding and consent to the session.

Treatments may include genital massage, depending upon the treatment session you choose and the preferences and boundaries you state on the consent form.
As part of the massage there is an opportunity to explore and connect with all areas of the body including the genitals. If you decide to include the genitals in your massage then it may include you receiving a Yoni (virginal), Lingam (cock) Anal and/or Prostate massage.
