Tantra Conscious Touch massage
Tantra 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 Tantra 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,Tantra 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 Tantra Conscious Touch sensual massage which exercises your personal expression of desires.
Although a Tantra 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 Tantra Conscious Touch sensual massage is about loosing expectations of any ‘result’ allowing you to feel and enjoy your body more in each moment.
In Tantra 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. I will coach you 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!
I have participated in two Trainings with John Picard, one of which was a professional Tantra Massage Taining in the Czeck Republic with John Hawken. I am both a holistic and a Tantra massage practitioner myself, and appreciate how rare it is to find a male practitioner with the level of expertise, strength and sensitivity possessed by John.
My experience of receiving Bodywork from John has been nothing but positive. John has a very professional approach to his work and a very sensitive intuitive touch. Aside from being a top class masseur with very healing hands, John has the unique capacity to make his clients feel very safe and 'held' in a way that allows them to relax into vulnerability without any fear of John stepping over personal boundaries. He is able to make clients feel comfortable and safe by using humour and genuine interest in their needs. John has a wealth of life experience and compassion that he applies with ease and authenticity. During the treatments I have received from John he has listened to my requests with both his ears, his hands and his heart.
I cannot recommend John highly enough for his skill and professionlism, so much so that in the past I have organised for several of my women friends to receive Tantra massage from John, as I trust his integrity implicitly.

"Thank you for the wonderful Tantra Massage John. It came at the perfect time. My body had been experiencing some armouring and stress prior to the massage and you helped my body feel safe, held and nurtured throughout the session.
You were very respectful and clear about boundaries and you honoured and stuck to the agreements we made at the start of the session and I really appreciated that. I experienced you as professional, clear, compassionate and nurturing and the session felt safe and held well. Thank you for creating a safe container for the treatment and for honouring my body in a sacred, respectful and loving way."
