If you’ve ever tried Tantric Soul’s gay massage therapies, then you may have noticed that one of the ways our masseurs create a soothing and calm ambience is through soft lighting, candles and music. There can be nothing worse than going for an appointment that’s meant to help you access a place of deep and prolonged peace, only to find that there’s a tinny radio on in the background, featuring jarring or dissonant music, bass-heavy hip-hop or frantic pop with too much trebly hi-hat. With a sinking heart, you realise that instead of an oasis of pure peace, you might as well be having your massage at the bus-stop or a busy hair salon or right in the middle of the M4. Sometimes, it’s too late to back out of the situation and you have to consign yourself to what you already know is going to be a thoroughly disappointing 60 or 90 minutes. Try as you might to get into the spirit of the occasion, there can be no escaping the infuriating racket that’s hammering away at your poor ears. This is why it pays to use reputable, upmarket agencies instead of shabby and distasteful establishments.
Our gay massage practitioners always use non-intrusive music, designed to motion you upwards and into a serene and relaxing emotional plane. Of course, you can always request that there be no music at all, so that all you have to accompany your experience is the tender sound of you and your therapist’s gentle breathing. The last thing we consider it appropriate to do is to foist music on you which you don’t wish to hear. It’s presumptuous and unsophisticated. We also avoid that ghastly kind of piped music, sometimes known as ‘elevator music’ or ‘muzak’. It’s the sort of faux-spiritual, sludgy music that can leave you feeling as if you’re on hold to a call-centre and hanging on to your sanity by just a slender thread. None of these indignities awaits you when you book an appointment with Tantric Soul. We pride ourselves on giving you quality rather than the kind of cheap, easy razzmatazz you’ll find elsewhere.
