Yin Yang Massage

The Yin-Yang Massage was created by Andro Rothe in Berlin in 1978. Andro is also the founder of modern Tantra Massage as we know it today, and the founder of the Diamond Lotus Tantra Institut in Berlin.

According to Andro, the Yin Yang Massage is the basis of the massage forms he later developed, such as the Stereo Massage, Erotic Massage, Tantric Massage, Talana Massage, Kundalini Massage and Oceanic Massage.

Yin Yang Massage is a holistic massage modality that blends elements of Eastern and Western therapeutic healing massages such as Thai Yoga Massage, Shiatsu, Polarity, Reflexology, Connective Tissue massages and Byzantine massage treatments (Hammam) to create a powerful massage experience that deeply relaxes, revitalizes and wakes up unused energy potential.

One of the theoretical fundamentals of the Yin Yang Massage is the Meridian theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM Meridian knowledge is used to activate vital life energy (Qi or Prana) and to promote balancing and strengthening of Yin and Yang components in humans.

Nevertheless, the Yin-Yang massage also borrows from modern anatomy and physiology knowledge, Indian Chakra teachings, and Tibetan medicine. In fact, the Yin-Yang Massage is the basis of the Tantra Massage later developed by Andro, and as such it’s also part of the overall training for Tantra Massage as Andro taught it.
