Tantra Massage, what it really is and what it can do for you, is not clear to most people . The most common view of Tantra massage is that it has some relationship with Eastern religion, with uninhibited sex, and with ‘happy endings’. To some, Tantra is a lifestyle; to others, it’s empowering our spiritual masculine and feminine energies. None of these views of Tantra are wrong, but none really explain what Tantra actually is.
What is Tantra? And, most important of all, what is its relevance to us today?
The word Tantra is Sanskrit, the sacred language of Hinduism. It
is derived from the root word TAN, which translates as ‘to expand,
or to weave’ Tantra’s essence is mainly about continually expanding,
spreading, and manifesting oneself like a ‘cosmic weave,’ utilizing
Jade Lotus Tantra Massage
The taboo of tantra massage is that it is a ‘happy ending’ massage,
a sexual service or a way of hiding behind a spiritual veil to make
money from the Tantra bandwagon. There are, in fact, people who do
that. However, the Jade Lotus Method
Performing Tantra Massage
The Jade Lotus Tantra Massage is a three step process. Step one, involves a full body massage, and while being massaged, clients will learn deeper, more thorough knowledge on the Chakra system of the body. In the ‘transphysiological’ language of Tantra, cosmic energy is said to flow into the microcosm through the chakras and thence to cycle through the subtle body and out again into the macrocosm.
It is said that this happens in all of us, whether we know it or not
and whether or not we co-operate in the process. Our
The chakras are the key to physical health, emotional stability and
mental clarity. The chakras are vortexes of moving
As we progress upward through the energy centers, we learn more
about who we are and the ideas and attitudes that
Today in our highly charged world we are in urgent need of understanding this ancient knowledge. This is all encompassed in our Jade Lotus level one Tantra Massage.
The massage itself involves strong, deep tissue massage over the Chakra areas, and gliding the energy from one part of the body to the other, asking the client to visualize the energy moving. The relaxing and therapeutic effects of this massage involve attunements, building heat, and Indian head massage. Step two of the Jade Lotus Tantra Massage involves lengthy discussions in Pranyama.
The Sanskrit word ‘Prana’ means life-force. Pranyama (the act of taking in Prana) teaches that during the retention portion of the breath cycle, one should consciously retain the Prana, then release the carbon dioxide (and other gases) from the lungs during exhalation, storing the Prana in the third Chakra.
Pranyama techniques used in session two are the Circle Breath,
Trapezoidal Breath, Kundalini Breath, Pranavayu Rasa,
There is a convergence and synchronization of breath; life force merging into a vortex, physical and subtle energy exchange is taking place.

Kundalini is depicted as a coiled serpent that lies dormant at the base of the spine.
Level three Jade Lotus Tantra helps awaken the energy which then rises along the spinal column, activating all the other
Chakras on the way up. More specifically, however, it can be said that each chakra, beginning at the base of the spine and proceeding upwards to the head, opens for us a separate and progressively higher ‘level of consciousness’.
This is done through putting both step one and step two together into the third step. Strong movements, body contact and deep breathing techniques assists in activating all the seven Chakra centers which allow the client and the practitioner to enter into Yab Yum position. The Tibetan Buddhist term ‘yab yum’ meaning father-mother union – symbolizing the uniting of wisdom and compassion.
The difference between the methods taught in the Jade Lotus Tantra Massage and other tantra massages is that there is no involvement in any kind of sexual energy build up. The all too familiar relationship between tantra and sexual service and the taboo of cult style Tantra sex, is something that the National Institute of Tantra is attempting to re-educate the public about. Tantra Massage can be done without a ‘happy ending’ and the newly formulated Jade Lotus Method is just that.
Tantra sexual skills must be practiced and taught in licensed premises and with proper supervision by either a psychologist, a sex therapist or a professional in the ﬁeld of sexual education.
Tantra teaches us to become familiar with our spiritual nature, and
when we do so, our boundaries expand. We enter into
