Tantric massages help to improve your stamina, release sexual energy, relax aching muscles and sore, overworked joints — but could tantric practices actually make you smarter? We’re not just talking about improving your bodily intelligence, but tangibly boosting your IQ test scores. You may be dubious that some deep breathing and mindful connections between your chakras could enhance your intelligence, but there’s more in it than you think.

At the core of Tantric massage is the stimulation of both your mind and body in ways that deliver you into a blissful state of relaxation and tranquillity. When your mind is calm and you're in a state of peace, you can think with greater clarity.

In this post, we take a dive into the science behind the claim that tantric massage can help with mental clarity and intellectual sharpness.

How Mindset Affects Intelligence

Have you ever felt pulled in a thousand directions and overwhelmed by a million different tasks which all require your time and energy? Yet rather than methodically working your way through each job, you end up running around like a headless chicken, half-completing tasks and making silly, senseless mistakes. Well, you’re not alone. It turns out that there’s a scientific reason why we struggle under pressure and metaphorically “lose our heads” when feeling stressed.

The human body has two nervous systems. The first is the Parasympathetic Nervous System, which kicks into action when we’re relaxed or in a deep and restful sleep. The second is the Sympathetic Nervous System, which takes over when we need to act quickly — such as when we’re in a situation that is stressful or demanding.

The Sympathetic Nervous System is a left-over impulse inherited from our earliest ancestors who needed a fight or flight impulse to navigate their lives. Although today we’re very rarely in a situation that requires us to either fight or fly — thankfully, we no longer battle fearsome animals or rival tribes — we still have the same fight or flight response buried within us. The Sympathetic Nervous System channels blood to our limbs and concentrates all of our energy into these physical responses.

By contrast, the Parasympathetic Nervous system helps us to cognate the world around us by circulating blood to the heart and brain. Think of your dreams, how vivid and fantastical they can be and also how they sometimes help us to understand our goals, our fears and our anxieties better.  Have you ever gone to bed stressed about work or your family life and then slept and dreamt and awoken feeling ready to take on the challenge? Well, you have your Parasympathetic system to thank.

How Does Tantric Massage Help Sharpen Your Mind?

Tantric massage immerses you in waves of pleasure and relaxation. At the most basic level, it helps you to unwind and leave behind the worries and stresses of your daily life. This is because tantric massage stimulates and kicks into action the Parasympathetic System, encouraging blood circulation and sending energy to the brain — so prompting your whole body to become a master of its own nervous system. This switch to the other Parasympathetic Nervous System helps you to reason with clarity so that you can handle the stresses, strains and challenges of daily life.

Breathing techniques, meditative states, and visualisations are also great for inducing calm, improving concentration, and visualising goals and desires. Although we can’t promise that you’ll ace every test or boss every meeting just by indulging in a tantric massage, there’s a good chance that it would help you to be better prepared — and hey, it’s way more fun than hours of stressing and pacing with anxiety.
