Tantra massage for fibromyalgia, a path to enlightenment?

What is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgie en tantra massage

Fibromyalgia is a complex condition that causes muscle stiffness, fatigue, and chronic pain. Although fibromyalgia can affect both sexes, it is estimated that approximately 80 to 90% of people with fibromyalgia are female. Why it is more common in women than in men is not fully understood, but factors such as hormonal, genetic, and sociocultural aspects may play a role in explaining this difference. Either way, fibromyalgia is a challenging condition and both sexes can benefit from appropriate treatment and support. In this way, the quality of life can be made more bearable again.

Many people with fibromyalgia have found that alternative methods can relieve their symptoms and improve their overall health. However, there is no known cure for fibromyalgia.

Even though tantra has an ancient history, in the form of tantra massage it is an emerging practice that is gaining more and more attention in the context of treatment methods for chronic conditions. It is a holistic form of therapy that focuses on balancing body and mind through energetic bodywork. It goes beyond relieving physical pain and focuses on restoring a person's overall harmony and well-being.

Tantra massage can be a valuable addition to the treatment plan for fibromyalgia, a condition in which pain and discomfort often predominate.

Tantra massage effects in fibromyalgia

Relieving muscle stiffness and pain is one of the main beneficial effects of tantra massage in fibromyalgia. Tantra massage helps release tension in the muscles by using gentle, rhythmic touches and different massage techniques. This can lead to a substantial reduction in pain and restoration of range of motion.

Tantra massage also helps people with fibromyalgia to relax and de-stress. As a result of the disease, people with fibromyalgia often experience higher stress levels. Tantra massage provides a safe and supportive setting in which one can surrender and let go completely. The release of body tension and stress helps calm the nervous system and create a sense of well-being and tranquility.

Tantra massage, which can include a yoni massage for women and a lingam massage for men, emphasizes the restoration of the energetic balance and harmony in the body. According to the principles of tantra, life energy (prana) flows through the body and when this energy cannot flow freely, physical and emotional problems can arise. Energy blocks can cause pain and discomfort in fibromyalgia. Tantra massage can relieve symptoms and boost the body's self-healing capacity by restoring the free flow of (life) energy in the body.


I would like to give a word of thanks and appreciation to you as a therapist, Christophe. Thank you for your dedication and time. You radiated a lot of confidence from the beginning and I quickly felt at ease.
Low back pains and pain in my pelvis have been troubling me for several years. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia years ago, but I could never accept the advice of the doctors to learn to live with the pains in my body. I keep looking for ways to relieve that pain.
Glad I was able to experience today that a tantra and yoni massage (in addition to meditation) is the best medication. It was a very special and intense experience. There was a deep sense of relaxation and peace and the pains in my back muscles and pelvis disappeared completely.
I hope to remain pain-free for a while and look forward to another appointment.

I am a 41 year old lady who suffers from the terrible diseases CFS and Fibromyalgia for 6 years now.
I had heard and researched around Tantra massage.
A spiritual massage for mind and body. That's how I ended up at Christophe.
Yesterday evening I received my first real tantra massage.
After a friendly welcome and a word of explanation, the massage started. I focused on the soft music and the massage. Little by little I felt every muscle and every joint relax. I enjoyed every second, every touch both physically and mentally.
After my whole body was treated, I felt no pain at all anymore, a feeling I had not experienced for years. But it wasn't over yet.
Then I felt a very intimate thing without any further touch. I had never experienced that before. An orgasm that I felt to the depths of my body. So intense. I was a little ashamed. But Christophe remained very professional and told me that it was indeed very intense, but that it was also normal. That something like that can happen.
Once I got home I was still relaxed and pain free. I went to sleep and slept around the clock.
Today my whole body and mind still feel that peace. I still don't have pain, I just canceled all my plans today to enjoy this peace to the fullest.
Being pain-free, even if it is just that, I want to enjoy it.
It is highly recommended.
I'm definitely going back.
Thank you for taking my pain away.
