Tantric body de-armouring supports you in letting go of unhealthy patterns in the mind and energy blocks that stand in the way of you pursuing the life and the relationships that you want. Here are the basic principles of tantric body de-armouring.

Tantric body de-armouring is one of my greatest passions, but I’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of it. It’s a bit of a mouthful, isn’t it? You may be wondering what the hell ‘tantric’ and ‘de-armouring’ mean, which is why I’m here to help you understand the life-changing potential that this art has. Founded by my mentor Andrew Barnes, tantric body de-armouring is quite a new practice, but it builds on ideas and concepts that are as old as time.

What the hell is Tantric body de-armouring?

Many religions and spiritual traditions encourage escaping or transcending the physical body in order to achieve spiritual enlightenment. But with Tantric body de-armouring we ask, what if instead of escaping our physical body, we can use it to achieve higher consciousness? This can be done by releasing deeply embedded tension and emotional stress, so that we can begin to explore sexual energy for sexual awakenings. This supports participants in their journey to let go of victim consciousness and release those harmful energy blocks. This shows that contrary to popular belief, practices that incorporate tantra aren’t all about sex; they’re actually about personal transformation and fulfillment.

And what is armour?

As the word ‘de-armouring’ suggests, we subconsciously hold energy blocks that affect all facets of our being. These energy blocks, or ‘armour’, are usually from unresolved sexual stress, emotional imbalances, and physical tensions. Most people don’t even realise that they are carrying these energy blocks throughout their lives, and by extension, don’t release that these may be the reason why they can’t seem to let go of physical tensions.

Picture armour as the baggage that we hold onto; we attach emotions to our memories, and our body is full of memories. Emotions are our drivers, so if we attach negative emotions to particular memories, it creates tension in the body, which then lowers our vitality and sexual energy. This is what I call subconscious behavior patterning, which can leave us living a life unfulfilled and make it more difficult to create the life we are longing for.

Thankfully, de-armouring allows us to release these patterns and free up our body and mind so we can focus on living and lovely more fully each day. Through tantric body de-armouring, participants take the first step in setting themselves free from this armour so that they can then begin to experience the power of their unbridled sexual life-force energy.

What to expect from your first Tantric body de-armouring session

Okay, so now that you know the basics of Tantric body de-armouring, what should you know before taking the leap and booking in your first tantric body de-armouring session? It’s important to know that tantric body de-armouring is not the same as massage or chiropractic. While it incorporates touch techniques using the hands, arms, forearms, elbows, knees, and feet, Tantric body de-armouring can be both both external and internal. It’s not just about releasing muscle contraction and tension, but releasing sexual stress and emotional imbalances.

Through Tantric body de-armouring sessions, you will learn how to let go of unhealthy patterns in the mind and blockages in the body that stand in the way of you pursuing the life and the relationships that you want. Similar to how yoga prepares our body to be able to sit in meditation, tantric body de-armouring prepares us to release past stress so that we can fully explore sexual energy and pleasure meditations. To experience sexual ecstasy, we must first prepare our nervous system and tune our body into its capacity to experience expanded states of pleasure.
