Conscious Touch massage
Conscious Touch Sensual Massage is a safe way to experience more health, comfort and pleasure in your body. It teaches you how to use intention, clear boundaries and choice to create a safe environment for your personal pleasure and empowerment. With Conscious Touch sensual massage you learn how to use your breath and focus your awareness to increase sensations and deepen innate body well being.
Unlike therapeutic massage, Conscious Touch sensual massage allows you to choose whether you are draped, nude or partially clothed on the table. You may elect to have your whole body massaged, or not. You must clearly articulate your choices and give consent in Conscious Touch sensual massage which exercises your personal expression of desires.
Although a Conscious Touch sensual massage may include intimate touch, it is not to be confused with sexual massage. A sexual massage is about the expectation of receiving genital stimulation to sexually excite and result in sexual release. Rather, the intent of a Conscious Touch sensual massage is about loosing expectations of any ‘result’ allowing you to feel and enjoy your body more in each moment.
In Conscious Touch sensual massage there is no goal of orgasm. The goal is to fully explore techniques of breath and mind-focus to bring a timeless and treasured awareness of body joy. You are coached in techniques that allow you to experience being relaxed and energized simultaneously. You enjoy deep and prolonged states of suspension from ordinary awareness. Whole body massage promotes sexual health, wellbeing and wisdom.
When I make an appointment with John Picard, it's not for therapeutic massage, but for a blessed hour of altered consciousness through breath, intention, visualization, and the expert touch and holding of space he offers. I'm not sure what to call this: "sensual massage"? "Sensual" not "sexual" because my body fills with sexual/life energy, but the massage doesn't end in orgasm. In fact, the journey doesn't go to any familiar sexual place at all. The massage ends in peace, illuminating messages, wholeness. These experiences are all about me, a lesbian witch, who so rarely focuses on the miracle of my own beauty and spirit. The sensual massages I've had with John are the most powerful acts of self-love I've yet experienced.
I am an enthusiastic neophyte to these experiences and finding therapists who are skilled and trustworthy is difficult. I am lucky to have been introduced to John by a mutual friend. In our first session, he put me at ease immediately, asked good questions, made sensible suggestions, and then I put myself in his hands. While I definitely thought I knew what I wanted to do, I was able to go farther and deeper because John Picard is a sensitive, magical, powerful human being devoted to joy, love, healing, and pleasure.

John's massage is what all massages should be... conscious touch. I started receiving John's massages just as I was waking up to the idea that my body is sacred. John honours this idea and with deep respect and integrity, he creates a safe and protected space for this sexual awakening process to flower. With gentle but firm touch, his healing hands perform magic on the body bringing it to deep relaxation, surrender and ultimately, pleasure. With John's ability to 'read' my body's language, I've been intrigued to learn more about my body's response mechanism and how relaxed it can become with conscious massage to my head for example. Now I know what to get my potential lover to do! ;-) John's knowledge of the physical body and intuitive wisdom of the energetic body combines superbly to make this a massage must for everyone, especially in a country where pleasure is an uncomfortable word for many! Thanks John!
