The fundamental ingredient which gives the flavor and special touch of uniqueness to the iTantric formula is the fully conscious touch.
What is conscious touch?
You may wonder what conscious touch is. Touching is something we all know how to do. But the way we do it is very different: we can touch casually, we can touch with the intention of achieving something (the expression “to get your hand on”) or we can touch with the intention of providing a pleasant sensation, of giving a part of our soul, bringing attention/consciousness, so that the massaged one feels that he/she is touched up to the level of the soul.
Conscious touch involves a degree of attention on the part of the masseur/masseuse. He/she must pay attention to the reactions, to the degree of emotional openness, breathing and the level of energy awakening of the massaged person.
Conscious touch means to bring consciousness and to give meaning to the emotional experiences of the massaged person, to carefully supervise his/her degree of awakening and openness in order to always lead the sensory experience in an ascending, uplifting sense.
Inspiration, special sensitivity, control of one’s own energies and the ability of our masseuses and masseurs to connect to the inner states of the guest through conscious touch transform each session into a unique, carefully personalized experience that goes beyond the personal plane and accesses the transpersonal plane.
The hand that caresses awakens sensuality, listens to the reactions of the skin it touches. It feels his/her abandonment, emotion, pleasure, confessions or anxiety, in some cases of suffering and loneliness.
Gradually, you get to be more receptive and to focus especially on what you feel in the body and in the heart, to identify from a confused sea of feelings, certain states, thoughts or images that gradually come to the surface.
