“Yoni” is the Sanskrit word for the vagina, describing not only the anatomy but also encompassing the energetic and spiritual dimensions. Whilst there is no doubt that a yoni massage offers women the opportunity to enhance their sexuality, but the purpose of yoni massage is not purely sexual pleasure; the effects of this practice are much more profound and have far reaching affects that reach every area of a woman’s life.
Long held inhibitions in the West about sexuality and the shame and guilt associated with the genitals and sexual zones of the body have created deeply rooted barriers that prevent many women from fully expressing themselves. Authentic Yoni Massage and Tantra practices can help women to overcome these barriers and reconnect to their innermost core and tap into the restorative, energising and healing sexual energy.
In modern culture the two most sacred areas of a woman’s body the breast and the yoni (vagina) are degraded to being merely sexual objects or for child birth/rearing. They are rarely touched or considered outside of an physiological function, sexual or child-rearing context. The yoni and breasts are largely sexualised in Western culture and women for generations have been made to feel shame in these areas as a result many women have a negative relationship with their yoni and their sexuality.
The cultural shaming of women’s sexuality and needs mean that many women have come to feel bad about their bodies and have been conditioned to be disconnected from their breasts and yoni’s. The yoni has for most women become an object that serves the needs of others and has become an area that harbors great shame and hurt.
Many women have become so disassociated with their yoni that they never consider them, but all negative emotions are held there and the yoni becomes an area of embarrassment and shame. Stress and negative emotions stored within the yoni lead to stagnation and pain, the body attempts to minimise discomfort and often turns the pain to numbness. The yoni and its power is reduced to an area of discomfort or numbness. Symptoms such as irritation, penetration discomfort, low libido, dryness, lack of orgasms, inability to feel and even chronic pain are all common when negative emotions are stored within the body.
If you had backache or muscular aches and pains you would probably see seeking massage & bodywork as a practical and sensible solution. So, as the yoni is just a part of our body wouldn’t it make perfect sense that when massaged with unconditional love our yoni will release trauma and heal.
Yoni massage is about gifting yourself the power of receiving touch WITHOUT any expectations and about releasing negative emotions so that you are free to feel pleasure in the body again. It can be pleasurable, emotional, painful, upsetting and relaxing.
Physical Yoni Massage Benefits
Yoni massage, whether done yourself or by a professional, is a whole body experience that includes touching, releasing, arousing and massaging the whole body, focusing on the outer lips of the yoni as well as pressure points within the yoni. It may result in female ejaculation and or orgasm, but this may not happen.
The yoni is a storehouse for unresolved emotions, sadness, rejection, shame, frustration, heartbreak, pain, resentment and anger just to name a few are all held within the yoni. When you consider this then it is ever likely that the yoni becomes an area of pain, discharge, discomfort or numbness.
Why Yoni Massage is important for Women
Women need to develop a new loving relationship with their yoni and learn to receive without giving. It is important that women can release negative emotions and develop a relationship with their body where the yoni is touched with unconditional love and care, without any expectations of arousal or orgasm or of having to give. Indeed one of the hardest things for a woman is to learn receive pleasure and to surrender without fear.

The yoni massage can really help a woman to let go of long held inhibitions and the shame and guilt associated with her body by releasing stagnant negative emotions and deep-seated barriers that prevent individuals from fully expressing themselves and feeling bliss and positivity.
Yoni massage is not simply a hands-on technique that requires physical manipulation, but instead involves intention, the conscious direction of energy throughout the body through deep breathing and visualisation. It provides women the ability to cleanse and energetically stimulate the chakras as well as achieve emotional healing by releasing the traumatic pain that often becomes seated in the yoni. Once a woman is able to be in touch with her yoni energy and release stagnant emotions her connection to the entire web of life is restored to its rightful blissful state.
