What is Tantra, Tantra massage and where does Tantra come from. Types of Tantric Meditation Yoga and Shaivism.

.. The Heart, says Abhinavagupta, is the very Self of Siva, of Bhairava, and of the Devi, the Goddess who is inseparable from Siva. Indeed, the Heart is the site of their union, of their embrace, and it is the abode of pure consciousness as well as unlimited bliss.

Tantra spirituality, Yoga and origins of Tantra, (More than just a Tantric massage and love life techniques!)

While In Dubai this year at a very beautiful high profile Indian society wedding in Dubai marina, I was asked to run a 2 day introduction to the secrets of Tantra for the happy couple and their future marital bliss. We held an afternoon tea lecture on the highest Tantra Yantra Shaivism. Here are a few words to introduce the subject.

Tantra spirituality Yoga and origins of Tantra, (More than just a Tantric massage and love life techniques!)


Shaivism “Kundalini Shakti is the concealing and revealing energy of Lord Shiva. Para (supreme) Kundalini is the heart and existence of Shiva, in fact it is the life and glory of Shiva, it is Shiva ” ….Tantra in the advanced texts and Yantras, is known by scholars as Kashmir Shaivism it is a Tantric work and one of the writings and texts that make up Tantra and it’s Sister Yogas and the healing arts of Ayurvedic. Some are merged into Tantric massage movement and all its dubious connotations. Others are the ultimate guide to meditation, visualisation, and can be a great gift to anyone’s self development, empowerment and also give peace and positivity in a similar way to Buddhism.

Tantra has also a unique part of the writings the deal with love sensuality and sexuality, but this is only a small part Tantra

Shaivism Tantra considered the highest and most valuable of the Tantric yoga philosophyby some. Overview of their understanding on ourselves and Universe, life nature and living a more happier connected life with the knowledge to be more energised spiritually aware and with methods to increase your power and vitality.

Tantra Mantra art in Nepal


Tantra works., or Yantras, sub divided into writings etc. such as the Shavism ones and others involving methods of Meditation, powerful visualisations, contemplation and spiritually focused Yoga asanas while in meditation. With a small valuable body of texts on sexuality through the God figure of Shiva and his consort Shakti……Kashmir Shaivism is a philosophy of non-dualism or monism, can be understood that we are all one with God, and we are not separate from each other, linked as a whole, there is only Universal total Consciousness. The God Shiva in the Hindu tradition is a name given to that. The fact that we look separate from each other is an illusion, we are simply individual examples and entities or expressions of a greater Universal Consciousness powerful energy. Could be understood as Mother earth as a consciousness..


This Tantric yoga philosophy provides techniques designed help you experience this greater consciousness to full feel more linked to all others and to enjoy your life more and feel better about yourself and expand your awareness and to some how tap into that greater energy and all its benefits to yourself esteem and happiness and how you live your life and a more fulfilled way. It is a practical system that uses many techniques of positive thinking and Yoga with many methods similar to other forms of Yoga but closely linked to newer firms of Kriya and Kundalini Yoga.


The role play in Tantra is closely linked to the works of the Shakti, (A Goddess figure), who has the power to awaken your Kundalini! or awaken your potential energy

In Tantra, the male and female a feel are linked as one consiousness and join the great consciousnes almost a duality of both and one as a whole.

In Shaivism..more detail was expanded under monoism that by having union with Shakti the Shiva would process the energy of Shakti. Gateway to advanced heightened consciousness. In separate Writings, also translated from the Sanskrit, regarding Philosophy of Tantra. We find they had also developed. Various techniques which heightened Kundalini and they used power or the orgasm and senses of touch to stimulate the awakening.

The performance and joining of Shiva with Shakti had powerful secret techniques which aided a heightened awareness. Many techniques were semi translated in the Karmasutra and other texts. Some were blended later in other practises in the Himalaya. Vajarana Buddhism and as far as China with their own development in Taoism of the use of orgasmic energy to lengthen life span and the male virility must be fed with a longer orgasm and powerful methods to delay the release or ejaculation.


Kundalini is one of the forms of yoga – along with AshTanga Kriya Yoga etc. the science of Kundalini Yoga was highly cloaked in secrecy, and was brought to the West and the US with Yogi Bhajan. Kundalini is also another word for life force energy.


“Kundalini is often visualised as a “coiled” energy waiting to uncoiled. and pictured as snake at the base of your spine or Mudha bandha region one of the 7 Chakras parts of your body.”

In Tantra and Kundalini Yoga practice we focus in releasing opening awakening your energy, pictured as your snake and release the flow of energy and opening your world to the infinity.of potentiality positive energy. Tantra meditation Kundalini Yoga and the meditation energy practise of Kashmiri Shaivism. You can join your individual consciousness with your partner and reach the Universal Consciousness energy.


Benefits of Kundalini Yoga or the Tantra path are improved health, fitness strength, gaining a rebalanced mindset, happiness and peaceful acceptance of who you are and your potentiality and positive outlook bringing huge benefits to you or your partner in life work and home life.


Is A philosophy and a set of beliefs, Ideology and is one of the trifecta of Yoga and Ayurveda. Ideology and Philosophy of Spirtual practice meditation. Tantra is also more focused on the power of the person and joining to greater consciousness as a matrix of energy.

Many texts have been written about Tantra, and the knowledge disseminated by people such as Somananda. 900 ad. Later the famous guru among others Osho. OSHO Translated more of the texts on spirituality and sexuality in the 1970s.

Sanskrit Tantra and writings have been also translated in Oxford University and many institutions, with many scholars working a life time on this. Very small part of these writings and knowlege were anything to do with sexuality! Many Scholars get very annoyed when ignorant people think that that they are some cult movement writing and carrying out some Karamsutra techniques.


Tantra is often misunderstood! The West only borrowed a small valuable part of the whole body of works texts and Yoga… Maybe less than ten percent were to do with Sexuality.


The West from the 1900s onwards were interested in spirituality, Buddhism, Jaianism, Yoga, Taoism et al. The writings that were concerned with secret techniques of energy and fabled texts above advanced magical practices to improve your libido, performance and your marital life clearly took hold and were far more interesting the layman, or general reader, resulting in a huge rising in people getting to hear about Tantra. 1960s with the rise of the new age movements, and people travelling to India to learn new methods to cope with the modern day world, and the need to find spiritual solice. Clearly Tantra and the various forms of Yoga and all the mystery that surrounds them became very popular indeed.

Tantra with its element of Sensuality, and some of its Shakti and Shiva ancient techniques, practical advice, answers and practical methods quickly became more interesting and popularised.


1980s had various celebrities bragging about their sex life and the teachings they had experienced in India. The OSHO movement in the US. Ananda Sarita, Mantak Chia and the new age blending of Tantra, Taoism, Native American Indian Spirituality, Buddhism and the Tantra Mantras of Nepal and so on and so forth became a homogenous mass. For the layman in the street it’s all very confusing but they remember only the fun part regarding sexuality and not the rest.


2000 to 2019. The rise of You Tube. The danger of misformation and viral trends, suddenly the word “Tantra” was adopted by the sex industry with thousands of escorts and massage parlours claiming “Oooooh we do Taaaantra” sadly none of them know what Tantra is, what it represents. They copy paste “Tantra and Massage” or convert whole escort sites to saying “Tantra Massage” In a recent survey by Tantra Yoga Society… found less than 3 percent had any training and certification or knowlege! Very seriously Tantra was becoming a shady unregulated industry some based on direct fraud.

people thinking Tantra is only concerned with Sex! In places like Dubai whole websites are blocked just because they mention “Tantra”! and escorts routinely use the word without any training as a trend for for call girls!. So the whole word is being tainted .

People often forget they have the Tantra spiritual path as a way of life in Nepal and in the Buddhist monastery, What Tantra actually is.


Yes there is a genuine Tantra Massage, closely connected with Healing Ayurvedic therapy massage. Yes there are some secret texts and writings concerned, with Tantra Kundalini sensual touch and massage, yes there are the beautiful Indian Chakra dances that have a Tantra origin. Certainly there is a sensual method to massage increase libido and orgasm with out even direct stimulation, and yes there are secret and almost magical techniques to bring you to your love life.. not just the Karmasutra. It is not the whole meaning of Tantra! Also all those adverts for sexy Tantra in the West very few are genuine.

How ASMR Massage and Tantra. The latest tend that discribes the how people feel when having a Tantra massage feeling.


ASMR is the latest tend and movement for helping you relax, and also to help you sleep. It is a particular sound or touch at the right frequency and intimacy that induces a feeling of tingles, waves of sensations that are pleasurable yet calming, and a warmth that arises and permeates through out the body it gives a euphoria of sensations that can aid a deep state of peaceful relaxation. ASMR has been described as a sort of brain orgasm, without any sexual stimulation, but relaxation, a trigger for endorphins and mood lifting euphoria.

ASMR is something we have known about in Tantra massage for thousands of years, and the new term perfectly describes the feelings, and blissful state, people experience in a Tantra massage or Tantric massage as people like to call it.

Voice of ASMR sound healing through sound and touch massage


ASMR stands for, autonomous sensory meridien response, it is a term coined from 2010 to describe the feeling that people have described or felt for a millenia, an indefinable state, and they way that certain actions trigger or intensify these pleasurable sensations.


1. ASMR Sound Triggers

It was found that one type of ASMR, was sound at a whisper or a certain volume, tiny rythmic sounds, and a frequency were able to trigger ASMR response, and these had a particular calming effect, helped people to relax enough to let go and sleep peacefully.

2. ASMR Touch triggers.

Touch is also a trigger to ASMR. Minute touch and caress. Intimate stroking, fractions of a millimetre and the lightest of touch, done in a certain way could also induce an instant pleasurable shiver of sensation that would develop into a feeling of tingling euphoria. Intimate touch or even a warm caring hand, a brush over the shoulders could initiate a feeling of being loved and cared for, a parent and child response, or a lover and loved one.  Something that Tantra practitioners and healers have known for thousands of years, even some methods of Ayurveda are used with oils and massages in the knowledge that they produce this  blissful state of being.

Tantra Massage and ASMR

For Many years now, the typical description of my Tantra massages by clients and receivers were…..


“Wow I am tingling all over”  

“your touch is like magic, Mary, waves of electricity and I feel so happy” 

“like you have some magic fingers caressing me, feelings of happiness and energy are amazing”


Well this beautiful healing touch is a technique and ability of genuine followers of Tantra who are trained in the secret touches and massages that give the feeling of tingling pleasure and euphoria by their touch and massages, and also the way they give a loving adoring warmth from their hands and bodies that give a shimmering ray of light and ecstacy of physical sensation, a nurturing healing and many more words than can be described, a part of this sensation has now been termed by the new terminology,  “autonomous sensory meridien response” known as ASMR coined, now studied and popularised in the last seven years and seen in recent viral trend of youtube ASMR videos on the internet.

Tantra or Tantric massage includes ASMR touch trigger well as long as it from a Tantra Yogi, Shakti, Dakini or a therapist who is trained in Tantra in Tibet or India.

I define genuine authentic Tantra therapists!, not the new world trend of fake tantric massages!  


White Tantra ASMR massage. This form of Tantra massage is a relaxing non sensual massage that is not sexual, and should not be mistaken for any form of sensual tantra. Eg it is separate from sensual Tantra, and does not  include any lingham or intimate private areas. It is a very traditional form of Tantra using binaural floating sensory music, soft sound, and can include ASMR whispers and relaxing soothing sounds pranayamic flow breath, and voice. Comforting, and allowing the receiver to fall into a almost trance of deep calm, and sense of peace, and total sensation of being removed from all of the negative stress of life almost floating lets say. 

The white Tantra ASMR massage includes pouring of warm oils  chypre, cedar wood, sandelwood balsam, frankincense etc base note musk warm and relaxing. Very light touch massage involving circling the seven chakras of the body focusing and creating a gentle warm flow of energy that clears, blockages of the body and mind and aid to better circulation. The touch massage technique is from the ancient secret methods that are taught to encourage meditation and the pathway to Ananda, a state of heavenly bliss. In ASMR Tantra we use additional Pranayamic breath, and is an additional aid to a sate of being lifted away from reality and totally rebalanced reborn refeshed.  TANTRA YOGA 

White Tantra massage with ASMR is a powerful method to allow you to sleep. It allows you to fall into a deep REM sleep mode. Really helps insomniacs.

In London, ASMR means; Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, and it’s often defined as “a flow-like mental state” that’s triggered by a very specific sound or visual, according to ASMR University.

ASMR is an extremely and deeply felt relaxing sensation, instinctively comforting feeling, usually accompanied by warming electrical mild tingling sensations in the head and through out the body in a flowing circuits of sensation. Prof C Richards PhD, ASMR researcher of University studies into relaxation and ASMA touch. “The”tingling” starts in the back of your neck, travels across your scalp, and moves downward, following the line of your spine”. Some people feel it in their shoulders, limbs, and lower back, too. You can experience ASMR getting a head massage or a Tantra soft touch massage, watching and hearing someone whisper, or listening to light sounds or touch —.In addition to the visceral reaction, people say that the experience of  ASMR makes them feel happy, relaxed, comfortable, sleepy, advanced reaction to touch ASMR even euphoric and a dopamine orgasmic type high. Many new studies show the triggers to ASMR  A study found that people experiencing ASMR use it to relieve pain, were deep stress or anxiety attacks.

About 84% of ASMR fans book massages in the evening or watch ASMR videos on you tube or listen to binaural sound in the evening one hour before bed time. So it is a perfectly useful method to relax depending on your personal trigger of course everyone has different sensitivities.


Personally,  I can state in a study done that the sound part of th ASMR phenomenon can be dependent on a person’s auditory sensitivity. Example being, listening to high frequency sound. Some people, and including the very young can hear very high frequency sound eg the sound of pest control pulse plug ins that scare away mice, but humans can not normally hear as they grow older, teenager mosquito effect..  Some people are affected in the opposite end of the spectrum, by low frequency base sounds khz.  A recent test on You tube asked people to listen to a certain sound depending on the volume/frequency sound it had a quite affect with people  who were more sensitive to each range of sound hearing different words entirely. Laurel test.


In touch masage we noted some people have a hightened level of sensitivity to touch. Possible more clusters of nerve endings, called nerve receptors is possible. In your fingertips you have 2,500 to cm 2 the highest density to that anywhere of your body. Though the spine to nape of your neck has also a high density.

ASMR how does it work

A stress relief or a magical cure to tension?
ASMR massage and Tantric massage. We know induce the feelings of calmness and relaxation are likely due to the release of endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin, fire neurotransmitters. receptors in the brain fire Endorphins pleasure and happiness chemicals. In our childhood, it’s a parent’s touch comforting response with a voice that is most useful at calming a nervous agitated infant.  It is quite likely that pathways or need to be comforted are important in those experiencing the sensations.
What triggers ASMR
Data suggests that touch response, (massage, hair touching, and physical massage caress on certain nerve clusters particularly the neck and certain regions of the body, and sound low toned singing whispering, are the strongest triggers of ASMR. It was found the certain therapies from the East, including Tantra and Ayurveda and Taoist massage had know the benefits of what we call today ASMR for hundreds of years if not thousands of years. Today modern science has created the term to discribe what was unnamed! it a beautifully natural human response and wonderful aid to our menu of wellness therapies to aid stress .

Tantra Massage and White Tantra with ASMR in Dubai

Note on types of Tantra and conservative countries misunderstanding what actually constitutes a Tantra or Tantric massage.

We have written about ASMR and massage, and the type of Tantra called White Tantra, which is a healing and therapeutic form of tantra, that does not involve removing clothes! other than wearing a towel and being treated under licence in a good spa.

Tantra massage the white version we mean is not sexual and for this reason,  it could be a part of any licenced Ayurvedic or Tantra Spa. It does not involve any banned or illegal activities between sexes. Dubai and Abu Dhabi does not allow certain practices, because they involve male to female or female to male touch, and do not conform to regulations in the UAE eg. Abu Dhabi, or Saudi Arabia, Qatar or certain conservative countries. With respect to the countries and their systems. Tantra should not be illegal because not all! Tantra is intimate or sexual and has been totally misunderstood!

Tantra massage was not illegal 10 plus years ago in the UAE , but recently a new age part of Tantra from the USA took and popularised one path of many paths of Tantra that is self awareness, sensuality and sexual knowledge for making love a greater consciousness and helping couples.  This one practice is only one part of Tantra’s many systems of belief and yoga etc. Many Paths of Tantra and schools.

Tantra ideology, and ancient belief and practice of Yoga and meditation was not sexual at all!! Please see the writings doctorates of many theologians.  Go to Tibet and Nepal for Tantra Mantras and the Buddhist Tantras, visit India and learn from any Ashrams to see what Tantra really is it is often completely misunderstood.  Yes! one part of Tantra has teachings on the intimate love methods and Shakti and Shiva with useful knowledge etc. and it is really useful to this present day and age, but it is not the whole of Tantra!

Also please take time to see into Hinduism, Yoga and the Yantra paths originating in Vedic writungs. Treatises of Tantric thought practise and belief. Tantra scholars in many of the world’s universities can easily explain what Tantra is.  Sadly the use of one path of Tantra only was glorified and popularised to mean the whole of Tantra!. Its not only sexual practice at all, and most of Tantra is nothing to do with sex!  Suddenly the word was morphed on to any and every sensual massage business particularly in cities like london, and then horror of horrors on to escort sites..  suddenly the  UAE banned the term, and made even practitioners of yoga, (Tantra Yoga yes they wear clothes!!) ( Tantra meditation wearing clothes!!) Ayurvedic massages using Tantra methods but totally non sexual, and not involving intimate touch were suddenly treated with suspicion and banned which is ridiculous.

Tantra, is mostly not involved with those issues.

Not all Tantra is the same.  An old Arabic saying said  “Not all fingers on our hands are the same!”

You can safely have a White Tantra massage or #ASMR MASSAGE OR Ayurvedic Tantra Mantra massage  in Dubai or Abu Dhabi or any conservative countries with relaxation only form of Tantra, that is absolutely not involving male to female sensual erotic contact. Red tantra is a term coined to discribe the form of tantra involving the sensual side of energy touch, but a White Tantra is still a totally wonderful way to relax and along with ASMR can be taken in a professional qualified spa that is trained to do this even in more conservative countries.
