Yoni massage or yonic massage, derived from the word Yoni, a representation of the vulva which symbolizes the goddess Shati, is a type of Tantric full-body erotic massage that primarily focuses on the labia, clitoris, g-spot, uterus, the breasts, the anus and other erogenous zones.
The massage is therapeutic and is sometimes use as a method of relieving tension, pain or general discomfort of the vagina. It has been claimed by some practitioners to be helpful to achieve fertilisation, although there is no scientific support for this claim.
Contrary to some belief, the purpose of Yoni massage is not to achieve orgasm, although it commonly occurs during Yoni massage. This is presumably because of the higher rate of achieve orgasm during masturbation, compare to sexual intercourse.
Due to the stimulation of the clitoris, vulva, anus, g-spot, build-up, and combined and constant stimulation to the erogenous zones during the massage, achieving orgasm via Yoni massage is probable.
A Yoni massage consists of the masseuse, called the giver, and the receiver of the massage, called the Shakta. The receiver is almost always naked, while the giver is dressed.
The Yoni massage consists of several steps, slowly and gradually providing a build-up to the eventual vaginal stimulation. The massage begins with the receiver lying on their stomach, exposing the other side of the body, called the Yang side. After massaging the entire rear body, and buttocks, the receiver turns around, lying on their backs, and the masseuse massages the Yin side. The massage continues, slowly transforming from whole body massage, to breast massage, to stimulation of the vulva, and finally deep vaginal stimulation.
Massage Oil, like in many other forms of massage, is not only use, but is also an essential part of the massage, to provide a sufficient amount of lubrication.
Practitioners use hands, and may use Yoni Eggs to stimulate the pelvic floor. Yoni Eggs are egg shape and are usually from some sort of stone, such as jade.
Benefits of Yoni massage are huge, and include de-stressing, recovery from traumatic experiences, increase orgasmic potential, vitality, creativity and a deeper connection to the body.
