What We Expect from You

All bookings require completion of an Intake Questionnaire & Consent Form, and a deposit to secure the booking (please see Payment Terms and Refund Policy for information on rescheduling and cancellations). We expect you to carefully ready the Devotional Tantric Bodywork® Guidelines prior to your session. We kindly request that you arrive on time and not early, as there is no waiting room and it is not always possible for us to receive you before your appointment start time. If you are running late please notify us by text message to the number in your booking confirmation email. Session times can not be extended if running late as there may be clients booked in after you. 

It is not necessary for you to bring anything for your massage however please arrive clean and showered (including genitals and buttocks) as there are no shower facilities on site. Please notify us at the time of booking if you have any allergies or skin and scent sensitivities in order  for us to prepare the session according to your needs. 

Our session times range from a minimum of 2 hours, up to 4.5 hours for couples. Shorter sessions are not offered because we work specifically with the natural rhythms of the body (which are slower than the pace of our society and mind), creating safety in the nervous system to achieve therapeutic results – this process can’t be rushed! All sessions include a pre-session consultation (which can take up to 45 minutes), the bodywork itself, and a post-bodywork debrief. We recommend selecting a longer session duration for your initial booking to allow enough time to honour your body’s natural process of unwinding and releasing stress in its own time, allowing you to receive maximum results from your session. Honouring and healing your body is not a quick fix, it’s about consciously choosing to SLOW DOWN and FEEL. 

This style of bodywork, involves ONE-WAY therapeutic touch, where the giver provides conscious devotional touch to the receiver. Our sessions are designed to help YOU deepen your connection with YOURSELF – physically, emotionally, and energetically. This is an opportunity for you to RECEIVE fully and feel yourself and enjoy whatever arises for you. 

You will learn to expand your capacity to contain energy and sensations within your own body. While the space we create is intimate, we kindly ask you to respect the one-way nature of the touch, refraining from giving back or exchanging energy. The journey within your own energy field is an integral part of this experience, allowing you to receive the most benefit from this therapeutic process.

Our utmost priority is to always respect your boundaries and obtain your full consent throughout the session. During the consultation, we will discuss and establish your personal boundaries for the bodywork experience. We understand that boundaries may evolve and shift moment by moment, and while we are trained to be attuned to subtle changes within the body, we cannot anticipate every individual’s unique needs. Therefore, it is important for you to communicate any changes in your boundaries, whether verbally or non-verbally, throughout the  entire session. At all times, you have the right to pause or stop the session if you feel uncomfortable. As such, we expect that you also respect and honour your practitioner’s boundaries, which contributes to creating an overall safe environment for your sessions.

As previously mentioned, it is important to understand that this style of bodywork is in no way an erotic massage, sensual massage, or pleasure massage. While the practitioner may incorporate whole-body touch, including therapeutic touch of the genitals, the purpose is strictly of a therapeutic and healing nature (in which the entire body, which includes the genitals, experiences itself as connected and whole; and where trauma, pain, memories, and/or  blocked energy stored in the tissues can be safely processed). Our sessions are not intended for sexual gratification, sexual interaction, or sexual release. Therefore, there are absolutely no “happy endings,” no ejaculation, no kissing, no oral activities, no masturbation, or any form of sexual exchange during these sessions. Our focus is solely on promoting healing, well-being, and personal growth and transformation through this professional and respectful bodywork approach.

As a professional healing bodywork service, the practitioner reserves the right to terminate the session at any time if these guidelines regarding the non-sexual nature of the service are not adhered to (resulting in loss of deposit). Both you and your practitioner’s safety, comfort, and well-being are of the utmost importance, and we maintain a strict commitment to creating a safe and integral environment at all times.

Please note that even though there are many beneficial and healing effects of Devotional Tantric Bodywork®, it does not replace medical treatment. Please consult a doctor for advice with any physical or psychological conditions. 

Important information about how to get the most value out of working with us is set out below. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us before proceeding with your purchase.

Important Information

While we maintain an excellent track record of achieving sustained results for our clients, it is essential to acknowledge that the outcomes depend on various factors. Therefore, we cannot guarantee identical outcomes for everyone. Various factors, including predisposing, perpetuating, and protective elements, contribute to the overall experience and results. 

The key to gaining the most benefit from your session is your active participation. Clients are expected to take ownership of their own healing journey and be actively involved in the work instead of expecting us to wave a magic wand for a quick fix. 

Proper integration through consistent home practice is key to reinforcing the benefits gained during the sessions. We encourage clients to embrace the techniques and self-care practices provided during the session to facilitate continuous progress. Furthermore, lifestyle choices and what occurs between sessions are beyond our control and play a significant role in the overall outcome. Factors such as smoking, drinking, medications, diet, exercise, and the nature of personal relationships can have an impact on the sustained benefits of the sessions.

It is essential for clients to have patience and realistic expectations regarding the healing process. The deep work of deconditioning the body and nervous system, and addressing root dysfunctions on a cellular level, requires time and repetition. While each session contributes to your progress, it is important to understand that sustainable healing takes time to unfold. The healing journey is a gradual and transformative process that may extend beyond a single session. Each session builds upon the previous one, allowing for progressive growth and integration. It is important for clients to understand that meaningful transformation takes commitment and trust in the process, and expecting immediate results after just one session may not align with the nature of this work.

We are fully committed to providing the highest level of care and expertise during each session to support your overall well-being and progress towards your goals. 

Specific Instructions

The extent of benefits and sustained results is determined by the client’s readiness to let go of old habits and patterns, as well as their intentionality about their sessions, working with a focused purpose.

Your session includes a consultation before the bodywork, tantra education, breathing and heart connection practices, the bodywork itself, and a debrief afterwards. During the consultation we will ask you to state your intentions, boundaries, and focus of the session. This is also an opportunity to ask any questions, get clarification, or state any worries or concerns  you may have before the bodywork begins. 

Throughout the bodywork session, the receiver is typically (though not always) unclothed, while the giver always remains fully clothed. We encourage the receiver to keep their eyes closed during the bodywork to enhance their body awareness and heighten sensitivity to other senses.

By following our guidelines and engaging with the tools we provide – Breath, Sound, Movement, and Awareness – in the intended manner, clients can actively support their body and nervous system during the sessions. The more you allow your body to respond by expressing natural bodily impulses and sounds (i.e. sighs, moans, groans, twitching, rocking, shaking etc.), the more significant the benefits you will experience. 

Risks

It’s essential to be aware of these risks before deciding to engage in a Devotional Tantric Bodywork® session:

Clients must not attend a session while affected by alcohol or drugs. The practitioner retains the right to terminate the session if the client appears to be under the influence and not sober. In this instance your deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit required to schedule another booking. 

Pease notify your practitioner if you have any of the following: injuries, physical or mental health conditions, history of sexual abuse or trauma. 

Pease notify your practitioner if you are on medication, if you could be pregnant, and if you have any allergies.

Pease notify your practitioner if you have ANY contagious conditions (including STIs, and COVID symptoms). This is for transparency and practitioner safety and does not exclude you from our service, however allows our practitioners to take precautions for their own health and safety. 

This work can elicit deep emotions, new bodily sensations, and memories. During the session, you may experience feelings of vulnerability and emotional release, which could be challenging to process. These sessions are a space to allow yourself to feel. It’s essential to acknowledge the feelings that arise and know that you are supported to process what’s coming up without judgment.

Clear and respectful communication of boundaries is of utmost importance in any intimate bodywork. As practitioners, we prioritise maintaining professional boundaries, and encourage clients to communicate their boundaries openly and authentically throughout the session. If there is any doubt or uncertainty, we advise clients to stay with and honour the slowest parts of themselves. It is essential for clients to remember that you are in control of your session at all times, and you have the right to express your preferences and limitations, and to pause or stop the session at any time.

Certain massage techniques and positions may cause physical discomfort, especially for those with pre-existing health conditions or physical limitations. However, you should never feel obligated to endure anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe. Your well-being and comfort are paramount, and we are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment where your boundaries are respected and honoured. Please feel free to discuss any concerns or questions about boundaries with us at ANY TIME throughout your session.

It is important to understand that when the body feels safe and supported, unresolved trauma may surface for processing and resolution. Some aspects of this bodywork may trigger memories, reactions, or unresolved trauma. If you feel triggered during the session, it is important to communicate your feelings and experience with your practitioner. They are here to support you and can adjust the session and techniques to support your process. Continue coming back to you tools (the Gateways to the Body – Breath, Sound, Movement) to bring you back to the present moment and aid in grounding when triggered.

After your session, follow the After Care guidelines recommended by your practitioner. Engage in self-care activities that nourish and comfort you. This may include spending time in nature, engaging in creative outlets, or taking part in activities that bring you joy. Your practitioner will contact you in the days following your session to check in and see how you’re going. Please utilise this opportunity for extra care and support if required. If you find that the triggered trauma is impacting your well-being after the session, consider seeking support from a qualified therapist or counsellor experienced in trauma healing.

Remember, it’s entirely normal for trauma to resurface during the healing process. By addressing triggered trauma with compassion and support, you can navigate through the healing journey with greater resilience and self-awareness. Your safety and well-being are our top priorities. We strive to create a safe and supportive environment during your session. Please feel free to communicate any concerns or discomfort you may have, as open communication is essential in tailoring the session to your specific needs and ensuring a positive collaborative experience.

Limitations

We emphasise that our services, including Devotional Tantric Bodywork® and Sacred Massage Rituals, are not of a sexual or adult industry nature. Our offerings are dedicated to supporting somatic healing and personal growth through therapeutic touch, promoting a holistic approach to well-being.

Our practitioners are not medical or mental health professionals, and our work is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical conditions, diseases, or mental health disorders. While our sessions can be beneficial for emotional and mental well-being, they are not a substitute for professional medical or psychological treatment. At all times, you remain fully responsible for your own physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. 

Professional Advice

Our work is not a substitute for medical advice, mental health support, therapy, or counselling. If any concerns arise during our work together, we strongly recommend you seek advice from an appropriately qualified professional. While our services focus on somatic healing and personal growth, they are not intended to diagnose or treat medical conditions or mental health disorders. Our practitioners are not medical or mental health professionals, and their work should complement, not replace, the guidance of qualified experts. We emphasise the importance of seeking specialised care for specific concerns outside our practice’s scope.

Suitability

You will get the most out of working with us if you are someone who is open-minded and willing to explore their own body, sensuality, and spirituality in a safe and supportive environment. You are someone who values self-care, nurturance, and the exploration of pleasure as an innate and natural aspect of the embodied human experience. This work is suitable for those who are committed to understanding and embodying the sacredness of their own sexuality. With a deep appreciation for the divine aspects of human connection, they approach the sessions with an open heart, eager to integrate the teachings and practices into their relationships and daily life.

These sessions are suitable for those who respect the importance of clear boundaries and consent, and they approach the sessions with an attitude of trust and openness to the practitioner’s guidance. Our clients embrace personal responsibility for their healing journey and engage in deep self-reflection. They are ready to do the inner work to break free from old habits and conditioning, desiring to evolve as a more conscious and skilled lover or partner. 

Our client exhibit courage, being willing to fully feel themselves and cultivate patience and compassion for their unique path of growth and transformation. They approach the sessions with an open heart, eager to explore and integrate the wisdom and healing potential of this sacred practice into their lives.

Unsuitability

You may not be suitable for this work if you are seeking a quick fix or a sexual service such as a happy ending. This work is not about chasing pleasure or peak experiences, but rather embracing the full spectrum of the human experience, including the subtitles, the depths of emotion, vulnerability and intimacy. If you are not willing to explore and feel more deeply, this may not be the right fit for you. Additionally, if you are seeking to fill a void in your life or are using this practice to outsource your own lack of connection, we may not be the right fit for you.
