Many people have had traumatic experiences around their sexuality. These experiences can leave the deepest imprint into the subconscious. When it is too much to process, we often suppress emotions and sensations. Tantra origins began in India where practicing ancient tantric techniques is believed to be effective in healing sexual trauma. Unresolved trauma seeks expression through physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels.
In Sanskrit, tantra means “network”. It refers to weaving together patches of fabric into a larger whole. Nothing exists independently, and everything is part of the same reality. Tantra helps us experience this interconnection. We bring the unconscious conscious. The body stores suppressed emotions and sensations. It is a heavy load that influences day-to-day interactions with others. Tantric healing releases suppressed emotions and sensations. The body starts to relax and feel safe. The door is open to experience connection, freedom, and pleasure.
Tantra is beneficial to heal traumas related to sexuality. Here are some sexual issues that can arise unconsciously from traumatic sexual memory. Note that these patterns are not definite indications of sexual trauma.
Sexual Tantric Healing could help solve these issues.
The Tantric Healing process is simple, but it does takes time. Tantric Healing does not require or suggest sexual intercourse for relief of any symptoms, or for healing benefits to be realized. Ethical and conscientious a Tantric Healer providing a service to the public in a healer/client dynamic does not have intercourse with their clients. Those who seek Tantric Healing are not there to have sex with the healer, they are there to address sexual dysfunction and adverse symptoms from sexual trauma. Subjects typically go through a series of breath and movement exercises, combined with somatic activation and sensual massage for the purpose of relaxing armoring and discovering where there are energy knots impacting the erotic energy flow. Further treatments are designed to release these psychoid knots, rehabilitate and rejuvenate the flow of erotic energy, providing relief, and restoring healthy body-mind integration.
Feeling safe in Tantric Healing sessions is paramount. People who have sexual trauma, carry emotional baggage about sexuality, and it is common to have trust issues, low self-esteem, and/or body image issues from this trauma. Due to sexual assault and abuse, some are skeptical and afraid of seeking help with such intimate and vulnerable wounds. Professional Tantric Healers maintain informed consent and consciously implement treatments that maintain the subject’s ability to safely absorb and continue their healing process.
