You may be wondering why of all things I want to discuss the healing benefits of Yoni Massage.
Well, being a tantric therapist this is part of the healing support I offer women.
Tantric roots believe that we are all born holding the keys to our
- own pleasure
- greatest potential
- own healing
All the “essences” of life… love, bliss, happiness and fulfillment that we seek externally already held within.
But the doorway is your body… and of course if you do not feel safe in your own skin and at ease in your own body, well it’s pretty difficult to move forwards as a whole being.
In Tantra we call the vagina, “yoni”
This is a Sanskrit term which when translated reveals a whole new perspective of the vagina. A meaning that holds love and honour. She is called “sacred space” or “sacred temple”.
I feel this Sanskrit translation is a beautiful reflection of how the yoni is seen, touched and respected in tantric massage.
This way of “being” in relationship to the yoni, is I feel not only important for men to integrate into their understanding and sexual journey of the female genitals but women also.
Too often in Western society, the yoni is seen as a separate, private part to our whole body and life. We call her “down there” or our “private part”. We feel her function in life is only for sexual pleasure, sexual relationships or for the birthing of a child.
I am so often asked why tantric massage includes the yoni and my answer is; Why not?
Our genitals are not private parts of our body, nor are they separate parts to who we are, to only be invited to “come out to play” for special occasions.
Without the acceptance of the yoni and our sexual essence we cannot fully embody our soul and our passions into our daily lives. They are sacred parts of the body of which when seen and touched from a space of love are no different to any other part of your body that you allow touch, pleasure and healing.
Your yoni has a “voice!”
She has secrets to tell, ancient feminine wisdom to share, guidance to your fulfillment to offer, emotions and pain to release.
Pleasure and healing come hand in hand, as our bodies relax and release withheld trauma and tension. Your shoulders, your neck, your jaw line holds the stresses and traumas of life… your yoni is no different.
In fact she is so sensitive, that she is more susceptible to store unhealed emotions of the past and present.
It is not unusual when using sacred touch on a yoni for a woman to feel overwhelmed with different emotions ranging from anger, isolation, rejection, shame to ecstatic pleasure. I am there to guide and support a woman through the expression of all of them …to unleash whatever may arise to be seen & accepted with unconditional love.
A Tantric massage has no goals; it is a very present experience of the senses that unfolds. Therefore orgasm and climax are not an aim. It may happen, it may not …that is neither here nor there or my intention as a tantric therapist.
Yoni massage is not a form of masturbation
It is not about “getting a woman off” nor is its intention sexual. It is a very conscious and present form of healing and loving touch.
To be totally present for another allows the body and yoni to melt and let go. If orgasm or climax does occur it is a healing experience rather than sexual and not something we have tasted before.
The orgasms are deeply nourishing and satisfying for the body and yoni, the body moves into a state of bliss and wholeness for it has been recognised as a “whole” often for the first time. It is an expansive feeling of mind, body and soul bringing a sense of unity with our woman~ness.
This is of great personal importance to bring a woman in tune with her own womanhood, to open the doorways that reveal a strong, open, sexually empowered, sensual woman ~ not simply for the man in her life, but firstly for herself, her daughters, her sisters.
I am sure the list of the benefits of a yoni massage has not reached its limit as tantra brings something new & fresh to each unique individual I have had the honour of working with. But to bring light upon this ancient practice that can be seen with such a limited view, I have provided you with a few healing experience that conscious sacred touch of the yoni may bless our lives with
A Yoni Massage supports a woman in witnessing and accepting emotional pain be that from sexual trauma, abuse, difficult sexual relationships or trauma experienced in childbirth
It supports the healing process of
- Painful menstruation
- Irregular menstruation
- Low sex drive
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- The inability to feel safe in one’s own skin
- Lack of trust in relationships
- Lack of respect for one’s own sexuality, reducing promiscuity
- Birth Trauma
It invites into a relationship with another
- An ability to trust
- A willingness to be vulnerable
- An ability to surrender
- A connection of rich depth and unity
- Nourishing & satisfying sex for the mind, body and soul
It allows a wide range of orgasms and climax experiences never tasted before, for the woman to immerse herself into for personal exploration of her body and femininity ~ revealing, deepening and expanding her sensuality and sexuality.
