Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Where are you located?
    All sessions are held in my private studio in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
  • Do you offer online sessions?
    No, at this stage I only work in person from my private studio in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
  • How do I book?
    New clients are required to book online first. Any subsequent sessions can be booked directly via email or phone.
  • Do you accept cash?
    I require a 50% deposit paid when you book online. The outstanding amount can be paid in cash or card.
  • What is Tantric Massage?
    Tantric massage is a sensual, full-body massage that brings together a variety of massage styles including classical massage, acupressure, Lomi Lomi, Tao, Ayurveda and bioenergetics intended to liberate your senses and stimulate the flow of Kundalini (sexual, life-force energy). During a Tantric massage your entire body is touched with great presence, including the genitals. This is not to create a sexual experience, but to acknowledge and bring awareness to one's sexual energy as an integrated part of the whole body. Touch, breath and placement of awareness are all used to circulate sexual energy (Kundalini – life force energy) around the body, so that you may feel a sense of pleasure, unity and connection.
  • What are the boundaries of Tantric massage / bodywork?
    Tantric massage is an opportunity for you to connect more intimately with yourself rather than the practitioner. While there is an energetic exchange that happens during the practice, there is strictly no mutual touch, intercourse, oral sex or kissing involved in any sessions.
  • What’s the difference between Tantric Bodywork, Laya, Samaya, Spanda and Kamala?
    The main difference between the various Tantric massage offerings is duration. Tantric Bodywork sessions are recommended for people wanting to explore Tantric massage without genital massage. You may experience a subtle awakening of sexual energy in these sessions. Both Tantric Bodywork and the Laya Tantric Massage are performed on a massage table with the practitioner fully clothed. The Samaya, Spanda and Kamala Tantric massages are performed on a futon with the practitioner in comfortable underwear, offering a deeper and more intimate experience.
  • Is it ok to reach orgasm during the massage?
    Yes you are welcome to orgasm, but it’s important that this is not the goal of the massage. You are invited to let go of performance, your concept of ‘orgasm’ and seeking heightened states of pleasure, and instead surrender to the experience of receiving and become intimately aware of sensations in the body.
  • I want to experience a full body orgasm or multiple orgasms. Will this happen during the massage?
    Full-body and multiple orgasms may on occasion arise spontaneously, however the more you chase this, the less likely it is to happen. Letting go of expectations and goals, and instead bringing your presence, openness and curiosity to the session will lead to a far more exciting and expansive experience.
  • How long should I book a session for?
    It takes time for the mind and body to fully relax and surrender into the practice so I recommend a 2 hour session for the best experience.
  • Does Tantric massage help with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, difficulty reaching orgasm, painful sex and other sexual difficulties / concerns?
    For specific sexual concerns, I recommend exploring Somatic Sexology sessions.
  • How often should I receive Tantric massage?
    Tantric massage can be an ongoing practice that you do simply out of love for yourself, with the intention to enrich your life and relationships. If you are experiencing some difficulties in your life or have a specific intention you are wanting to move toward, I recommend weekly or fortnightly sessions to help move stuck energy.
  • Do I need experience to receive Tantric massage?
    No! All people are welcome to book a Tantric massage. Tantric massage/bodywork is just as much about relaxation as it is about spiritual or personal unfoldment. If you are a complete beginner and curious to learn more about Tantra, we will spend some time at the beginning of the session discussing basic Tantric philosophy, your intentions and practising specific breathing and mindfulness techniques.
  • Do you offer couples sessions?
    Yes! Couples can book the Couples Tantric Massage Experience or if you would prefer to each have your own practitioner, book the Samaya with Two Practitioners or Spanda with Two Practitioners.
  • What oils do you use?
    I use organic coconut oil.
  • How do I prepare for the session?
    Once you book you will receive an email with all of the details on how to prepare for your session.
  • Who is the course for?
    This training is open to everyone above the age of 18.
  • Do I need Tantra experience?
    No prior knowledge or experience with Tantra is required. You will receive foundational teachings in Tantric philosophy and practice which will be enough to get you started on your journey.
  • Do I need bodywork/massage experience?
    No prior experience in massage or bodywork is required.
  • Is there any nudity involved?
    Yes, during Tantric massage practice sessions there will be some nudity involved as the massage is given and received naked. This is to create a feeling of equality between the masseuse and recipient. While this may feel initially confronting, we make every effort to create an atmosphere of safety and respect amongst the group allowing any discomfort, embarrassment or shame you may feel to quickly dissolve.
  • Is this course for men and women?
    Yes, this course is for all genders. We endeavour to keep an even balance of men and women as you will be practising in pairs. Women will be partnered with men to practise giving Lingam massage and men will be partnered with women to practise giving Yoni massage.
  • Who will I be paired with for the practice sessions?
    In the practical sessions, you will be partnered with the opposite sex. You may choose your own partner, however we recommend swapping partners throughout the course to give you experience working with different body types and energies.
  • Do you provide food on the training days?
    Light snacks and tea will be provided. There will be a morning tea and lunch break.
  • Do I need to bring anything?
    You will be required to bring a sheet, large towel and lungi / sarong, notepad and pen. Wear comfortable clothing.
  • Can I offer Tantric Massage professionally after completing this course?
    Yes, this training will leave you confident and empowered to begin practising Tantric massage professionally. SOM is always looking for passionate practitioners to join the team so you can discuss this with Ania upon completion of the training.
