Intimacy. It’s something almost all of us want. In fact, not wanting intimacy is as perverse as disliking the sun. People who profess not to want or need intimacy may simply be engaging in bravado. Probably, underneath it, they yearn for closeness just like the rest of us. Human beings are social animals and study after study, including this piece from “Psychology Today” has confirmed the myriad benefits of living a life that involves intimate connection to other human beings, whether in the form of long-term romantic relationships, loving, engaged, connected friendships or the healing touch of gay massage. Of all those keys to intimacy, perhaps this practise is the one that’s been least explored. Let’s take a closer look at role that having massages can play in enhancing the intimacy in your life.
The trouble with forging connections with other people is that, having endured the slings and arrows of growing up, you may have sub-consciously erected an entire series of complex barriers. When, later on, you try to form one-on-one connections, these barriers, of which you may not even have been aware, suddenly come into action. It can help you to dismantle them, especially if you book tantric, erotic service, a form of practise in which you and your practitioner are entirely unclothed. This act of trust, of two people revealing their bodies to each other, is profound. Its benefits cannot be overstated. The simple measure of removing clothing breaks the ice like almost nothing else.
If you’ve found that just as you’re trying to form an intimate connection with someone, you turn around and push them away, then you’ve got a serious barrier to intimacy in your way. This therapy can dissolve it. With its eye contact, breathing rituals, body contact, spooning and caressing, not only can massage help you with current intimacy issues, it can heal historic ones. Because every Tantric Soul masseur is vetted not just for superficial characteristics like looks, but, more importantly, for depth of character and empathy, you will be in a safe, not to mention strong, pair of hands. You will be able to give yourself over entirely to the care of another human being. Before long, you will see the changes in your personal life, even if you’re not in a relationship. There’ll be a newfound richness to your friendships; a feeling of connecting on the level of the heart that was not there before. Old, intimacy-preventing behaviours, like going for unavailable people, will shift.
There’s an array of measures we can employ in our day-to-day lives that will help us dismantle the intimacy barriers erected earlier in life. Male massage London is not just a luxurious treat; if sought through a reputable agency like Tantric Soul, it has the power to diminish our fear of intimacy. This involves not just a literal shedding of clothes, it also helps us take off the invisible armour we’ve been using to get through life. Every session involves a loving touch, conversation and embracing. You’ll learn how to take off the shackles holding you back from connecting with others. This is even more the case if you tell your practitioner up-front that you are looking to use for this specific benefit. Your therapist will then tailor-make your appointment so that it focuses on intimacy. You will be amazed at how much can be achieved over a series of 60-90-minute sessions. One by one, the barriers will fall. The benefits will then start to manifest in your outside life, leading not just to an enhanced love-life, but also to all kinds of meaningful connections.
