How is a professional Tantra Massage
Unlike an erotic massage, orgasm and ejaculation are not the purpose of this massage. In a Tantric massage the most important thing is to unblock the energy both in the body system and in the psychic system.
The powerful spiritual energy lies in the base chakra, located between the legs. Once released, it grows up through our body and transported through the channels called meridians.
Believing that our body is central for our welfare, the system of Tantric massage for the seven chakras located in our body is used to reconstruct all aspects of an individual. There are no good or bad chakras, they are all necessary and work as a whole, not separate.
According to the scholars of Oriental philosophy, balance is found in the proper functioning of those 7 vertices of energy.
The Seven Chakras
- Basic chakra or first chakra. It is the support of spirit. Its proper functioning will determine the connection of the human being with the earth and matter. It is located at the end of the spine.
- Splenic chakra or second chakra. It is located by the navel, and it has influence on the nervous system and the body temperature. It gives perfect harmony for the body, mind and emotions.
- Solar plexus or third chakra. It is located in the solar plexus and has influence on the digestive system, and gives dominion over the sub-conscious as it illuminates the mind.
- Cardiac chakra or fourth chakra. It is located near the heart, and reflects the deepest feelings. This chakra is responsible for transcendence, and compassion and love without egoism.
- Laryngeal charka or fifth chakra. It is located in the throat and influences expression, communication, hearing and telepathy. It controls thyroids, the bronchial and vocal system, the lungs, the feeding channel and inner ear, and is responsible for rejuvenation and longevity.
- Third eye or sixth chakra. Located between the eyebrows and belongs to the spiritual world, home to the main and permanent human principles.
- Crown chakra or seventh chakra. It is located at the top of the head and does not work unless the person has made conscious spiritual work.
