There are many different types of massage techniques, and Tantric, or Tantra Massage, is just one of many. The focus of the tantric massage is to awaken the chakras (energy centres) in your body to make you feel more aware and immersed in the experience. It combines traditional massage with your sexual energy to create a very heightened experience, a more intimate connection with your partner, and an ending that can be described as better than sex when done correctly. Why not find out for yourself and try it with your partner?
Remember, while one of the benefits from tantric massage is that it creates sexual arousal, there is a difference between tantra massage and an erotic tantra massage, so check and explain which you'd like when talking with your partner before you try it. They may be more comfortable starting off with a tantra massage instead of an erotic tantra massage.
The best preparation for a tantric massage is relaxation. Concentrate on taking slow, deep breaths, and don't worry about getting a bit excited during the massage. If you find that it does happen and your arousal makes you feel uncomfortable, make sure you let your partner know. Otherwise, simply enjoy the sensations as it is designed to help strengthen the connection with your partner.
If you are going to try giving your partner a tantra massage, or just want to return the favour once you've received yours, start by creating a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Try to minimise distractions in the area, so choose lighting that isn't too bright, and play music that is soft and gentle. Candles with a subtle scent can also help to relax your partner, but make sure you don't choose a scent that is overpowering, as breathing is important for the massage. When massaging, start with light touches and concentrate on how your partner responds. If you feel the connection between you and your partner is strong while massaging a particular area, keep at it for a while longer before you move on. If you are trying an erotic tantric massage, ensure both you and your partner are happy to proceed to that point before you begin to massage the sexual organs. As with the tantra massage, start with slow, light touches and build from there, as the slow climb up can be very rewarding for both you and your partner.
