Lingam is derived from the Sanskrit word for penis. Lingam massage is a type of sensual massage that aims to help people feel more comfortable in themselves by exploring and developing their relationship with their body. It is also capable of re-sensitizing those body parts, awakening pleasure, without the objective of an orgasm, and helping to release past trauma and emotional blocks. In Taoist philosophy the lingam possesses reflex points (similar to the feet or ears) which, when properly stimulated, have an effect on the whole body. Over 25 different holds, which build on each other, as well as dispersing the energy to the whole body with strokes and massage lead to a wave-like experience. Many men have unfortunately never experienced feelings of such intensity. The sexual energy is dispersed throughout the body and then built on.
