you begin to learn massaging it will never end.
Your experience will grow continuously. MASSAGING is
one of the most precious arts, it
is not only a matter of technique – it is a matter
of LOVE," (Osho)
During a tantra massage the following techniques are
combined in a sensuous and sensible whole body massage:
Reflexology massage of hand and feet
The reflexology massage
of hand and feet is the beginning of
our massage ritual. It reduces the receiver's
establishes a rapport between giver and receiver. This
been adopted from East Asian massage rituals, but was also
by the ancient Egyptians and North American Indian tribes.
Reflexology massage is based on the knowledge that the
entire body can
be mapped into certain "body zones" (feet, hands and
external ears are
of particular importance). These body zones are the
termination points of
numerous nerves, which transmit signals to the brain. The
brain then returns
impulses to the internal organs. This technique is similar
to the connective
tissue massage, but the impulses bring relief to
corresponding organs, not t
o the muscles. That in turn brings about intensive and
pleasant deep relaxation, which helps to alleviate strained
The term "classic" is used to distinguish between the more
conventional massaging techniques and unconventional new
ones that were developed in the last decades. The classic
massage is based on the so-called "Swedish massage",
developed by the Swede Peter H. Ling (1776-1836). He
worked at the Central Institute for Gymnastics in Stockholm,
which was founded in 1813.
The classic massage includes stroking, rubbing, kneading,
vibrating and pummelling. Depending on which effect your
looking for, different stroking techniques can stimulate
circulation or ease pain.
Effects: The strong stroking, kneading and rubbing can
even the larger muscle groups, improving their blood
circulation and stimulating the metabolism. The massage
should not cause any pain, otherwise the muscles will become
tensed in self-defence and any positive effects will be
The increased tissue fluid washes away dead-cell material
from the tissue - this way the massage functions like a
living-cell therapy for the skin and muscles.
Acupressure, also known as reflexology massage, is the
massage of acupuncture points. For this massage, one uses
the tip of the index finger or the thumb (but not needles,
acupuncture). The Japanese version of acupressure is called
Similar to acupuncture, acupressure is based on the Chinese
science of energy, which says that life energy flows along
“meridians”. These meridians, or energy flow systems, have
the role of transporting and distributing life energy
There are six Yin and six Yang meridians, which are
by two on the left and on the right hemispheres of the body.
there are several "side" meridians.
One meridian pair consists of a Yin and a Yang meridian (for
example, the lung-colon meridian), running parallel to the
limbs. The meridian pair is a functional unit and is linked
Yang meridians are at the side or the back of the body,
Yin meridians are inside or at the front of the body. The
meridians run partly beneath the body surface where they can
be treated directly.
One never reaches a balanced energetic level throughout the
entire body. The art of acupressure is to bring the human
as close to a state of energetic balance as possible
principles of Yin and Yang
The whole world, life and humanity, everything is based on
duality of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang are the antagonistic,
mutually dependent and complementary principles of Tao (also
called Dao), the universal principle. Yin and Yang symbolize
the universe's ideal balance and dual nature. The following
examples illustrate this principle of polarity:
Intense relationships and interactions exist between Yin and
Yin feeds Yang.
Yang protects Yin.
Yin will be Yang and Yang will be Yin.
Yin and Yang always co-exist and fuse into each other.
Something of Yin always exists in Yang, and something of
Yang in Yin.
This is symbolized by the Monade.
Trying to separate Yin and Yang means death.
Tao creates the One
The One creates the Two
The Two creates the Three
the Three create the ten thousand things
In the back of all things is the shadow
In the face of all things the light
And all contain harmony
through the immaterial breath
traditional Thai massage
The traditional Thai massage should not be confused with
commercial sex massages known from the red-light districts
Traditional Thai massage or “Nuad” can be traced back to
ancient Thailand’s history of healing. However, despite its
name, the roots of Thai massage are not actually found in
Thailand but came via India to South East Asia.
The techniques were originally developed by a north Indian
doctor named Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, a contemporary of
Buddha and physician at the court of the Magadha king
Bimbisara more than 2500 years ago. He was also known to
be a friend of Buddha and physician at a Buddhist monastery.
He is mentioned in the Pali canon, the oldest written text
southern Theravada school, which today is predominantly
common in Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand.
Due to its scientifically proven healing effects and its
techniques, Thai massage is still widely practised in
among all social groups. It even plays an important part in
country's health care system.
The traditional Thai massage is based on the concept that
levels of the human being are naturally interconnected.
Therefore its main objective is the integrity of nature,
mind and soul. In contrast to the classical western types of
massage, it is less oriented toward the physical-anatomical
features of the human body, but rather toward energy lines
energy fields, comparable to the meridians of Chinese
The techniques of acupressure and reflexology massage are
closely related. Both massage varieties generally show much
better success in health and pain control than conventional
western massage methods. While conventional massage
techniques mainly focus on stroking and kneading of the skin,
traditional Thai massage refers to "local areas" of the body.
The stimulation of these areas by massage treatment also
brings relief to the corresponding organs and body systems.
By stretching the whole muscular system the blood
