    Ep.8 - Tantric Massage

    Ep.8 - Tantric Massage

    In this final episode of the series, we bring you a Christmas treat! We go back to before pandemics were on our radar, to a heady time when Gwen took one for the team and got a tantric massage all in the name of feeling good. Before we hear the edited highlights of her visit with tantric masseur Graham, we talk to tantric practitioner and teacher Keone, who gives us an insight into the philosophy behind tantric massage and the vast positive impacts that it has on many people's lives.
    Warning: there is a lot of talk of genitalia in this episode. Plus a lot of giggling. Not fit for children or Gwen & Kate's dads. 
    Massive thanks to all our listeners for your support during our first series – we look forward to meeting again in 2021 when we return with Series 2 of Right Up My Podcast.
    If you would like to find out more about tantric massage, or to book your own, please contact:
