beyond tantra

  Below is an excerpt from the above book, by Mieke and Stephan Wik It is one of the most practical books I have read on improving one’s sex life when involved in a relationship or marriage. We do not offer Tantric Sex at Tantric Massage London in Kensington, but we hope that our tantric massage sessions can give our clients the necessary tools for improving their relationship with a partner. “You can learn and practise Sacred Sex with people other than your partner. But ideally, this means that the other person is also an adept and that there is a very high level of trust and awareness involved…. in practice, however, most people find that it is very difficult to do this. Our society does not equip most of us with the emotional and intellectual frameworks needed to allow this sort of scenario to play out well in the long term……. Sacred Sex takes time and practice. It’s not really something that you can do well during a one night stand…….” We hope that by visiting us and  receiving a tantric massage which is offered with love and caring, and with your best interests at heart, can be a… Read more »

Navaratri

                  Navaratri is a muti-day Hindu festival celebrated in the autumn.   For those of you who follow the hindu festivals, you will know that October 24th was Vijay Dashami Day, or the day of the Divine Mother, the 10th day of Navaratri.   Since ancient times, during Navaratri, Indians have invoked the energy aspect of God in the form of the universal mother, commonly referred to as Durga, which literally means the remover of miseries in life.   She is also referred to as Devi (goddess).   The dates for Navaratri are determined by the lunar calendar.   Vijayadasami or October 24th this year, is considered the most auspicious day of the year to start anything new. In India.   Astrologers are often consulted in order to find an auspicious date for starting a new business, holding a  wedding or beginning any type of new project.   In the autumn, this may well coincide with Vijayadasami.

hysteria on tantric massage blog

                  A tantric massage client phoned me a few days ago to tell me about the movie ‘Hysteria.’ I must confess that I haven’t seen the film myself yet,  but what interested me in the conversation with our client was that he pointed out how very respectable it was for a woman to go to a doctor in Victorian times, and to receive ‘manual digital relief’ in order to produce a ‘paroxysm of relief.’ The film is about the invention of the vibrator in late-Victorian England. A society doctor administers manual relief to his wealthy female patients as a cure for hysteria. ‘Hysteria’ was a condition ascribed to women and thought to be caused by disturbances of the uterus. It was a catch-all diagnosis for women suffering from anything ranging from a headache to depression to disobedience (the diagnosis was only finally dropped in the 1950’s). The doctor develops ‘masturbator’s elbow’ or carpal tunnel syndrome, and this leads to the invention of the first electric vibrator. The film’s director, Tanya Wexler, says:’ They didn’t consider the treatment sexual, because the husband was not involved. They thought the orgasm, or paroxysm as they… Read more »

lady gaga fame

    Lady Gaga Fame, her new fragrance, has been hitting the headlines Almost 2 years ago, according to rumours, she said the scent would have notes of ‘blood and semen’ and be suited to an expensive hooker. You may be the kind of person who has already started wondering what to get your female friends for Xmas, and this is certainly an idea – but we are not entirely convinced – here goes:   When it was realised that Fame was not likely to sell based on the earlier propaganda about ‘blood and semen’, the rumour changed to the perfume having the same molecular structure as  the bodily fluids. Today, the box bears no mention of blood or semen. Instead it has notes of Belladonna – a deadly nightshade, pulverised apricot, saffron and honey drops. The eau de parfum, in the futuristic bottle, is a murky black. When you spray the fragrance  it turns clear while airbourne. Lady Gaga Fame costs £25 for 30 ml What do you think ? Let us know whether you would enjoy a tantric massage using grapeseed oil combined with a drop of Lady Gaga Fame…..         http://www.elleuk.com/beauty/news/lady-gaga-s-fame-fragrance-how-it-smells#image=1

improve your marriage through tantra

I was chatting – or shall we say’ having communication’ with my 21 year old nephew yesterday about the flat which he shares with 4 other guys and 5 girls.  He told me that the girls are always quarrelling and have all fallen out with one another, whereas the guys seem to get on much better. When I asked him what he thought the reason was, he said that  guys are less complicated – they talk about common interests, like football and if they dont see eye to eye, they just move on to another subject…. I was intrigued by this, and it reminded me of an article I read recently on www.oprah.com entitled: How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It “So, I wonder, does this explain why, when I reach out and tell Hugh I’m feeling isolated from him—on the assumption that this will foster closeness—he gets defensive or withdraws? Do my verbal attempts to reestablish intimacy make him feel inadequate? Is that why he gets that glazed look in his eye and is suddenly compelled to watch men tossing balls on TV? When a man feels shamed by a woman’s criticism, his body is flooded with… Read more »

london olympics

  The London Olympics – what a treat Thoroughly brilliant enjoyment, fun, humour, music,  sparkle – and it made us all proud to be British! Many thanks to all those who helped to make it happen… PS. If, like me, you were wondering how the Queen was persuaded to take part, here is the answer: ” Queen Elizabeth needed little persuading in making her film debut, appearing with the country’s most famous fictional spy, James Bond during the London Olympic opening ceremony….” “The queen was delighted to be asked, and be involved in something so exceptional” a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman told Reuters on Saturday…..”it was our Olympics and the queen was delighted to be part of it.” The film was the brainchild of …. Danny Boyle, but it was…… Seb Coe who first approached the palace in 2011……When asked how much it took to persuade the queen to take part, a LOCOG spokeswoman said: “Not much”… …… “You don’t have to tell her something twice” Boyle was quoted as saying….”She picks it up straight away, about cameras and angles…..” “She was very happy to take part, she was very happy to do what she did” The Buckingham Palace spokeswoman added….

tantric massage and hatha yoga

I have always felt that a good masseuse should practice hatha yoga There is a definite connection between the two, and in fact, Thai massage is also known as ‘ the lazy man’s yoga’. Most of the tantric masseuses at Tantric Massage in Kensington do practice Hatha Yoga. Now the Journal of Sexual Medicine has published a study stating that ‘ guys who practiced yoga for 12 weeks, tripled the length of time they lasted in bed – from 7.3 minutes to 22 minutes ‘ So hopefully this may prove to be an incentive to some of our clients, to join a hatha yoga class !! Below is some basic information for those who may be considering joining a  yoga class for the first time: ‘Most yoga styles are rooted in Hatha yoga – it’s yoga’s physical discipline that focuses on developing control of the body through asana or poses. As well as physical well-being, Hatha yoga can also give you a mental boost. Its a great entry point for yoga ‘virgins’ as the moves are not too tricky. You could then proceed to more advanced classes of Ashtanga yoga,  which is more fast paced and intense, Iyengar yoga wich… Read more »

  According to the newspapers, John Travolta is facing serious allegations from an anonymous male masseur who is suing him for assault and sexual battery.   The unnamed masseur is reportedly suing for $2 million plus punitive damages after Travolta is said to have   ‘begun rubbing the masseur’s leg, touched his scrotum and the shaft of his penis after having stripped naked during an appointment.’   Not only did Travolta allegedly try to have sex with the masseur, but is also said to have told him that he ‘got where he is now due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his ” Welcome Back, Kotter days” and that ‘Hollywood is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity.’….   If you want a laugh, do watch the video below:

tantric massage explanation of kundalini

                        Maybe the majority of you who come and receive a tantric massage are not really concerned about the kundalini. You come to receive a relaxing and reviving tantric massage and you are more interested in the experience than all the theory But I have to set the record straight, from my point of view because I have  seen so many websites stating that the purpose of tantric massage is  to awaken the kundalini, align the chakras etc…. As always, there is a lot of nonsense  and half-truths spoken by people who have not really gone in depth into the subject,and have no real understanding. So to set the record straight, I would like to insert here a quotation from the great sage Ramana Maharshi, who is maybe the best known and respected master of the past 100 years. This is taken from one of the numerous question and answer sessions with Ramana: Q: The kundalini (primal conscious energy) is said to rise from the base of the spine. Maharshi: ‘That current is ourselves. Mind is the real kundalini. The representation of kundalini as a serpent is merely to assist duller… Read more »

girls want to be tantric masseuse

            Recently, I have been receiving at least two or three calls and emails each day from potential tantric masseuses. In the Employment section of this website, I ask  all applicants to send me a cv and a photo, but often they dont bother. Then when I ask them about their training and experience, the answer often is ‘ Well all my friends tell me how good I am’  – and so I discover that they have no massage training  whatsoever, and no experience, but they expect to get a job anyway…. and a very well-paid job at that. When they do send a cv and a photo, and I ask them to come over for an interview, many of them dont look anything like their photograph, and in the majority of cases, their massage skills are really poor. I remember when I started practicing tantric massage in London in the 1990’s, there were only 5 of so of us offering sensual/tantric massage in the whole of London.  We all knew one another, and we were all qualified, at least to ITEC level. I dont think anyone in those days would have dreamed of advertising themselves as a masseuse if they didnt have… Read more »

tantric massage london holi festival

I’m back to tantric massage london from my yearly visit to India But I’m not feeling quite as energised and uplifted as I usually do. I had a cough bug for 6 weeks before leaving London and finally succumbed to taking antibiotics. What I didnt realise is that you shouldnt go in the sun when on antibiotics as they make you over sensitive to the sun. You cant really avoid the sun in India. March in particular is a really hot month. I would advise anyone thinking of going to India, to go between November and February, when its slightly cooler.  Anyway, the heat made me really uncomfortable, and the conditions in the ashram where I was staying, were pretty stark, so  all in all it was a bit of a challenge and a struggle . I did spend a few days by the sea in Palolem, Goa, which is always lovely, and I left at the weekend of the Holi Festival.  Holi is celebrated on the full moon day in March. People paint their bodies and clothes in all manner of  tones, and it was a sight walking on the beach and seeing the play of colours –  both Indians… Read more »

valentines day treat

For those of you who want ‘the ultimate pampering experience on Valentine’s day we could give you our equivalent of  the Cadogan Hotel’s  special offer of a Champagne Bubby Bath for Valentine’s Day. They fill the bath with 120 bottles of champagne, and also assign you a personal Champagne Butler !  Depending on the champagne used, the price can vary from  £25,000 for a bath of Dom Perignon vintage, to £4,000 for a bath in Louis de Custine Brut. Here, at Tantric Massage London in Kensington, we already knew about champagne baths, which apparently were made popular by Edward VII, the son of Queen Victoria, who had his own special bath made, and indulged in Champagne Baths in the brothels of Paris. We know about this because we all recently went to see the french  film: House of Tolerance (french title: L’Apollonide – Souvenirs de la maison close). In the film there is a scene where a client has a champagne bath with one of the prostitutes. Take a look at the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJhjmaVptiU

valentine's day

What are you planning to do on Valentine’s Day this year? I will be leaving for the warmth, sunshine and spiritual inspiration of India. But for those of you who will be staying in London, what better way to treat yourself than to experience the  peace and bliss of your own inner sunshine. Rather than spend the evening in an over-crowded, noisy restaurant or bar, why not REALLY enjoy yourself and book an ecstatic tantric massage session…If you have a partner, you could also have a tantric tuition session together, or if you dont have a partner, an individual tuition and tantra coaching session with Celeste is available here, in our lovely tantric massage studio in Kensington, Central London, or, if you prefer, in your hotel room. While you decide, here is some light-hearted advice from a couple of agony aunts.. on one of the most asked about questions regarding people’s sex lives: X: Have been in a relationship for five years now and have a rather difficult problem.

tantric massage

Tantric massage is eliciting a lot of interest nowadays and we get countless telephone calls from potential new clients who suddenly decide to find out about tantric massage while they are driving their car, or just walking on the street They ask all sorts of questions and when I suggest that it is not easy to explain tantric massage in a few minutes and I suggest that they read the articles on our website, which will provide all  the information on tantric massage that they may need,  the answer usually is : ‘I cant because I’m driving’   or ‘Im on my mobile and can’t access all the details your site‘… or ‘I’m at work and can’t spend time looking at your website’ or ‘a friend gave me your telephone no. and I dont have the website address‘….. etc. etc… In our modern stressful world, everyone seems to be in a hurry.

happy new year

  There have been  many predictions for 2012, based on the Mayan calendar But on this first day of a new year, I am reminded of what is really important and the essential teachings of the great sage Ramana Maharshi, who was born on December 30th 1879. Ramana encouraged us  to practice Self Inquiry by asking ourselves Who Am I?  Instead of constantly looking outwards for answers and solutions, he suggested we  look within and discover the ‘I’ which is the source of true happiness. At a time when we may be inundated by expectations and pressures  to spend,  buy presents, celebrate with friends and family, be happy when we may not necessarily be feeling that happy,  eat drink and be merry, it can be  inwardly nourishing to remember the true meaning of celebration. “What exactly is this Self…? To understand this matter, it is first necessary for a man to analyse himelf. Because it has long been his habit to think as others think – he has never faced his  ‘I’ in the true manner…. he has too long identified himself with the body and brain. Therefore, I tell you to pursue this enquiry: ‘ Who am I’…….. when a… Read more »
