1. Where did tantric massage originate from?
From my research over the past 6 years, I have gathered that tantric massage started as a style of sensual meditation yoga, back in medieval India, some time before 5AD. This style of erotic, spiritual massage was then introduced to the Western world toward the end of the 18th century, and saw a huge burst of interest in the 1960’s and 1970’s as people began to open their minds more to sexuality.
2. How has tantric massage evolved over time?
As a result of it spreading across the modern world, a multitude of Tantric massage disciplines have developed over time however, it has always been a very spiritual practice with the goal of enlightenment. In the modern day, it is often forgotten that Tantra is essentially a spiritual sensual practice. Many escort agencies now mask themselves as offering tantric massage services however the real truth is that most of them have no idea what a tantric massage actually is!
Many of the original, meditative Tantric practices have been lost in this part of the world due to escort agency misdescriptions of the services they offer. For the few tantric massage agencies that do actually offer an authentic style tantric massage in London, such as Karma Tantric, they focus on achieving increased spiritual sexual awareness and awakening of the erotic consciousness.
Some modern, Western variations of tantra has been called Neotantra. Depending on who you speak to and their view, Tantra Massage comprises a variety of different tantra principles. In general terms, tantric massage can be used as reference to any aspect of sacred tantric sexuality.

5. Where can I get more information about tantric massage online?
There are only a few recognised authorities on tantra internationally. You will find organizations such as the International School of Tantra in Switzerland who offer courses and information regarding tantric massage in both spiritual and physical aspects, however many of these practices may not be the institutions you might expect. They are also pretty vague on questons like what is tantric massage specifically.
The only tantric massage authority that I have ever come across to be both authentic and professional is the London Tantric Association based here in the UK. As well as offering guidance to those looking to progress in their tantric journey, the LTA offers a wealth of resources that are actually useful to both seekers of massage services and providers such as tantric masseuses and tantric massage agencies.
A tantric massage is a sensual massage where you will be pampered and your stresses eased out of your body, all culminating in an explosive happy ending.
So I hope I have managed to uncover some of the truths and myths people have when asking what is tantric massage. As always I welcome your comments and hope I have shed some light on this topic for my followers. I would like to thank all Karma Tantric magazine readers for their support and best wishes. – Erica x
