Reviewed 17 March 2023

This was a series of profoundly erotic experiences beyond anything I have known in a long and (in younger days) active sexual life. Thinking about it a week later, I think it should be compulsory for all humans.

Why? Because, Tantric massage when done properly - gives an exquisitely pleasurable experience of 'sacred eroticism'. This is an eroticism beyond, and different to, what I believe most of us experience - even in great sex.

The idea, as Althea explains carefully, is not to reach orgasm (although it's not wrong if that happens) or for it to be a 'kinky' experience, but to produce pleasure all over the body, buildling slowly to an intense and sustained peak of erotic sensation that transcends ordinary sexuality.

Personally, I experienced powerful sensations throughout my body, and my own sexual anatomy come alive in a way I had never felt before, like a new creature moving inside me.

There were also intense and surprising emotions. As Althea explained, this can be a therapeutic experience, surfacing feelings that need release.

My first massage was with Althea, and I had a further 5 over 9 days with her male partner Feri. Both of them are extraordinarily gifted, and both complement their Tantric massage practice with other knowledge. Althea is a Psychotherapist; Feri a practitioner of Yumelho massage, which had a magic effect in loosening my back and neck. They teach yoga too.

(NB: I learned from Althea and Feri that Tantric massage is an unregulalted practice, so many claim this is what they do without the rigorous training needed. But you don't need to worry here).

If you're wondering who this is for - I understand Althea and Feri work with singles and couples of any age.

As a woman travelling alone, this was a therapeutic and health-restoring process - and one that transformed my feminine confidence.

As a couple, I believe (as others have said) it could transform your sex life. Apart from anything else, it gives a knowedge of eroticisim and sexuality that is sadly lacking in our education.

If like me, you are apprehensive don't worry, you'll be put at ease, with everything clearly and carefully explained and contained.

I'd recommend that if possible, like me, you do more than one session. For me, each session built upon the last and became a process of discovery, personal change, and divine pleasure.

So do this: you won't regret it!

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable 90 minute experience with Althea and Feri at their clean and well presented studio during a recent visit to Funchal. Both the tantric massage and Japanese spinal treatment were conducted very professionally and with great respect for our individual boundaries. Highly recommended.

Althea is a wonderful human being doing her job with only love. I booked a massage and it was amazing, one of the best I've ever had. A couple of days later I had a private yoga session with her. This was also one of the best classes I've ever done. If I lived in Madeira, I would come very often to this address! Don't hesitate, just book!
