Genital Mapping is a therapeutic technique used within somatic sexual healing, and perhaps best known as a practice within Sexological Bodywork and Somatic Sex Education.

Although Genital Mapping is typically an activity carried out together with a somatic sex therapist or perhaps Tantric bodyworker, it can also be done alone.

Genital Mapping is aimed at revealing and understanding which (parts of) genital areas (penis, testicles, prostate gland, vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, and including the perineum, anus and rectum) are tensed, contracted, painful to the touch, disassociated, blocked, or insensitive (numb).

The points or areas in, at, and around the genitals that are affected are thought to be signs of some form of physical or emotional trauma or stress.

By bringing awareness to these areas, a start can be made to come to an understanding, and subsequently healing, allowing a client to reconnect with their body and emotions, digest and flush out unnecessary, disturbing, or obsolete emotions and trauma, and again experience sensitivity and pleasure.

You’ll find different forms of Genital Mapping, such as Yoni Mapping, Lingam Mapping, Anal Mapping, Pelvic Mapping and Prostate Mapping. Note also that mapping can be done manually, or by using certain tools and devices, such as, for instance, a Prostate Massager, Yoni Egg, or Yoni Wand.

After the actual mapping activity and analysis — and apart from coaching, counseling or professional psychological help — a range of massage and bodywork treatment modalities can come to help to resolve issues, such as Yoni Massage, Tantric Massage, Prostate Massage, Breathwork, Pelvic Floor Bodywork, Karsai Nei Tsang, Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage, or any other genital, abdominal, or De-Armoring treatment modality that is deemed efficient.
