Tao massage is a unique ritual that balances out yin and yang polarities, calms the body and relaxes the mind.
According to Chinese teaching, Tao is the life energy that enables the existence of everything in this world, and tao massage aims to awaken this in the receiver. Tao is the source and creator of all things in the universe. It doesn’t involve merely the physical realm of material things, nor does it explain an abstract concept such as “God”, or “soul”. Because we are linguistic beings, and we understand the world through words, we need names. Tao is merely a term for us to grasp something that we cannot describe in words. “Tao” is a name for that which signifies everything that is.
It is in human nature to perceive the world in dualist terms. There is a duality in everything; there is no night without day, no health without illness, no big without small, no yin without yang. This duality isn’t the nature of things; it only exists in the eyes of the perceiver. What Taoism is trying to explain to us is that everything is One. There are no dualities, and the symbol of yin and yang in a circular relationship, alternating from one another is a perfect representation of this. The working principle of Tao is this unity, called “Tajji”, which represents the potential for something in its opposite because it is all One, it is all Unity.
But, Tao has different meanings. It is also the movement of the universe itself. It is a skill. Tao is a specific procedure or way of doing something. Whatever the ability is, it has its Tao. Gifted people were very much admired in ancient China. Anybody who possessed a unique skill earned admiration.
In today’s world, there are many successful people from all areas: businessmen, artists, athletes, writers, politicians, and the list goes on. Each one of these people has their own Tao, which means a specific aptitude and the way it is performed. Such skill is found in Tao massage therapist.
Nowadays, there’s a massive interest in the yin-yang topic, partly because for the Westerners, yin and yang remind us of the concept of complementarity. Chinese culture is especially fond of the yin-yang concept, and the use of it is virtually unlimited. In Taoism, yin and yang are defined as two polar energies that, by their fluctuation and interaction, are the cause of the universe.
In Taoism, a person is healthy when his or her yin and yang are in perfect balance, and when neither of them is in surplus nor deficiency. Tao massage is a unique technique which seeks to release emotional blockages and prevent physical issues. When we think in terms of Unity and Oneness, we cannot separate the body from the mind. So, in these terms, Taoist massage is working deeper than the physical layer, as it tends to induce a state of mental calm, similar to meditation. They are imitating the alternation between yin and yang polarities; the soft movements alternate from stillness to stimulation, relaxation and arousal.
Tao massage is one of the most profound and practical massages there are. If you’re someone who’s used to going to a typical massage, where someone is rubbing you with one hand, while typing a message with the other, you’re in for a surprise. Tao massage is more like a ritual than your typical massage. In this process, the body is taken for a meditative instrument to help achieve a harmonic state of body and mind, a union. It is a form of meditation, in which the body becomes calm, and the mind goes still. This beautiful union of the body and mind gives a lasting effect.
In this magical process of Tao massage, it’s about leveraging the fundamental types of energy: Yin and Yang. It’s more than simply touch. The powers are balanced subtly, by smooth strikes along the meridians – pathways for lifeforce energy. These gentle strokes lead the receiver into a meditative state, with awakened consciousness.
Unlike other massages, that are mainly focused on specific body parts, depending on the receiver’s needs, Tao massage has a holistic approach. The energy pathways go along the whole body, including the genitals. It means that the meridians in the genitals are also included in this massage. However, the erogenous zones aren’t focused upon. This approach doesn’t merely help you relax, but it works on the autonomic nervous system. The muscles, connective tissues, fascia, and skin, are all being worked on, and relaxed.
In their essence, Yin and Yang represent masculine and feminine energy. Whether you are male or female, you have both masculine and feminine energy. Yin is correlated to feminine, being gentle, passive and accepting, while the masculine is correlated to yang, as it represents activity, giving and vigour. Tao massage aims to bring together these energies, creating a balanced union, that will allow for the Tao principle to be perceived. Arousing energy levels of the body, and relaxing them, the body is brought to a state of liberation, directing its energies. One of the main issues with today’s modern people is that their energies have gone havoc. If we cannot be aware of our energy flow or control it, what are we expected to achieve in this world?
Because of all this, the brilliant Tao massage aims precisely towards awakening and balancing the energies. Through gentle, fluid strokes and more intensive stimulation, one’s powers are being awakened. The meridians are like pathways for the life force energy, and when the right touch is applied, these pathways are stimulated. The individual energy points, where meridians meet can cause severe blockages when the energy is stuck. Through Tao massage, the receiver becomes aware of the energy flow inside the body, and they can address these energies throughout the day, making better use of them. When we are aware of the energy flow in our subtle body, we have more control over our lives. When we are more open to life, opportunities start to present themselves before us.
There are many ways to release the stagnant energies, and one of the best ways is through Tao massage. When we target specific areas of the body, we allow the stagnant energy to flow freely, and we get to witness the changes in our life. This process aims to liberate the energies in the body and bring them to a harmonious flow. Tao massage relies on philosophical elements, which makes it a spiritual ritual. It will help you manage stress, awaken your consciousness, and relax the body and the mind in a way no other technique can provide you.
