Tantric massage is holistic body medicine. The cocktail of hormones and chemicals that flood the body; including: dopamine, adrenalin, oxytocin, serotonin, cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone etc. affect every cell in the body. It’s like giving the body a little electric current. So why is Tantric Massage, or any male to male massage, different from masturbation? And it is different … the body chemistry and biology is different in self-pleasure and shared pleasure.
When a baby is born it instinctively knows two external things: 1) to seek and suckle on a breast and 2) to grasp or hold a finger. We are hardwired for nourishment and connection. When we have deep loving sensual touch from a partner our primal brain is activated. It took millions and millions of year for your body to arrive on the planet. Your DNA knows how to connect and heal.
Sexual arousal involves our circulatory, nervous and muscular systems and of course the brain. It reaches every part of us – including the emotional body. It makes us feel good, loved, seen and appreciated. It’s been known for years that body language is far more important than mere language itself. This applies to touch. Holding someone’s hand speaks volumes … it says; I’m here. You’re safe. You’re not alone. I like you. I need someone too. You Belong.
And yet when we are ill or tired or out of sorts, mutual loving touch goes out the window and masturbation comes in the door. The best thing for someone under the weather, emotionally, physically or psychologically is a great intimate massage. I would suggest that anyone recovering from serious illness or even just the blues or a bout of flu could benefit exponentially with a dynamic Tantric Massage. It can literally perk you up in no time.
Tantric Massage keeps us young … it rejuvenates the body, heart and spirit. Over the years there have been many studies that show that people with active sex lives or who have loving intimate touch and connection live longer, feel younger and are less prone to heart attacks and strokes. Think about it … the mere thought of sex pumps the blood quicker. It’s also designed as a great stress reliever. Well, that seems obvious when we are having an orgasm. But when we feel stressed we seem to forget this and are libido takes a dive. But if you take the pressure of the need to perform … touch and a loving embrace can lower blood pressure and therefore relieves stress.
Exercise is known to help with depression, both clinical and circumstantial. If you have the black dog with you … you might as well take him for a walk. Most people with depression are not inclined to exercise. They lack motivation. But they might be motivated to lie on a bed and be held, and stroked, and caressed.
Sexual arousal and intimate touch produce more testosterone and this is great for healthy bones thus preventing osteoporosis. Sex and intimacy (in to me you see) can help the immune … it fires it up producing more immunoglobulin – the immune booster. Male ejaculation can also help with the prevention of prostate cancer in young men. It keeps the pipes clean so no need for extensive plumbing later on in life.
Sexual arousal through tantric massage has been known to alleviate, if not eliminate, aches and pains. There are a lot of endorphins and corticosteroids released and they have a natural analgesic effect.
And we all know (especially men) that we sleep much better after great sex. But the reason we sleep better is listed above. It’s an overall sense of wellness and belonging. We feel better generally in the world and within our body.
