Today we will show you what a great support for treating depression and depression healing can be tantric massage. At the beginning, however, we want to emphasize that depression is a disease and the sick person should be under constant observation of their doctor. Nothing can replace proper pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy - especially in some specific life threatening severe depression cases. However, as in the case of many diseases, also in the case of depression, treatment should (is better to) be carried out simultaneously on many levels, and tantric massage can be a great tool on the way to full recovery.
Therefore, we emphasize the importance of treating depression, regardless of whether we think that it is just a winter depression or is already a disease. If you have any suspicions, you should go to the doctor for a diagnosis quickly and, if necessary, start treatment quickly according to the doctor's recommendations.
Having said that, it is worth noting that the clinical practice guidelines for the care of breast cancer patients include massage as one of several approaches that can help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue and quality of life.

But before we go into the role of tantric massage in the treatment of depression, let's start by saying a few words about the disease itself.
What is depression?
Depression is called as a disease of the 21st century. More and more people are depressed. Depression now ranks fourth on the list of the world's most serious health problems. It is estimated that it will be in second place in 2020.
Women are more likely to suffer from depression than men. Depression can affect people of all ages, regardless of their material or social status. There are currently 350 million sick people worldwide, 83 million in Europe and 1.5 million in Poland. As you can see, the scale of the problem is huge, and it will probably be even bigger.
What are the symptoms of depression?
Depression can have different forms and manifests itself in completely different ways, but the most characteristic symptom of depression is sadness. Things that have been enjoying so far are no longer enjoyable. A person suffering from depression is no longer interested in his or her hobbies. Its activity is decreasing, there is a feeling of tiredness, lack of energy and willingness to act. Depression is often associated with sleep problems and appetite disorders. Patients may experience excessive sleepiness or insomnia. Similarly, in the case of appetite, excessive hunger or lack of hunger may occur. Concentration problems may occur. Depression is also often associated with anxiety disorders. In depression, the body also suffers. You may experience headaches, abdominal pain, chest pain and neuralgia. Depression is a disease that affects the human soul, but it is also linked to the body, so the body suffers too.
Treatment of depression - tantric massage and its role in depression healing
Tantric massage is a work with the body, mind and soul on a very deep level. A person suffering from depression will feel after the first session that tantric massage has a huge and healing effect on their mood. We know this from our own experience. We massaged many people who felt a clear improvement after the first meeting, actually about 9 people out of 10 experienced great effects already from the first massage.
Healing happens thanks to the touch and energy movement as well as working together with specific parts of the brain, such as lowering the activity of the DMN. A sensitive touch that causes the movement of energy. While massaging, we work with the dermal-visceral and dermal-skin arches, which have their effect on the autonomous nervous system, and the whole session, together with the intention, positively influence the subconscious, which in turn affects the consciousness and the making of specific actions, actions and decisions.
The massage therapist, in meditation and with developed and acclaimed love, massages every part of the body thoroughly. No part of it is neglected (unless you have some specific boundaries), because the whole human body is important and sacred. Sometimes some places require special attention and more time is devoted to them. Each massage is different because people differ from each other and require an individual approach, even the same person, for the same massage with the same person can experience completely different effects of massage on different days. Thanks to this, the massaged person can experience relaxation at a really deep level. Relaxation, on the other hand, allows you to open your mind and get rid of blockages .
Tantric massage boosts depression healing also because it removes tensions, daily stress, anxiety and negative emotions from the body. It unlocks the sexual energy that is in each of us. Not everyone, however, is aware of its existence, especially those suffering from depression, who, immersed in deep sorrow, cannot feel happiness and joy. They don't even have the strength and energy to take any action.
When we talk about sexual energy, we don't mean sexual intercourse. This is completely something else. This is the energy that occurs throughout the universe. More information about sexual energy can be found in the article Sexual energy in Tantra.
Deep relaxation and unblocking of sexual energy will make a person with depression feel much better and helps to lead to depression healing. Recovering hope that she can be happy again, she will feel motivated to act. It will unleash its inner power and strength, which is in every human being, only often we forget about it or cannot find it.
Tantric massage is a magnificent support for the treatment of depression and depression healing. Depression is sadness, lack of energy and general emptiness. Tantric massage is a touch full of love, which provides the relaxation that is hard to achieve in any other way. It unlocks the energy that's in each of us. It makes us rediscover the meaning of life and motivation to act.
Depression can significantly reduce the quality of life. It is an illness and you should be kept under the care of a doctor. Often, the only way to fully recover is through pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy. However, it is worth opening up to various forms of therapy support. Operating on multiple levels we face a greater chance for a quick and sustainable cure. Start treating depression now!
