Female Dysfunction: The Silent Epidemic
Contrary to popular belief, the male population are not the only sufferers of sexual dysfunction. Majority of people are aware of erectile dysfunction, impotence and issues that relate to male sexuality , however, it is estimated that four out of ten British women suffer from sexual dysfunction and despite it being common it is still largely ignored.
Mainstream medicine still struggles to diagnose and effectively treat female sexual dysfunction. The symptoms can include lack of sexual desire, an inability to enjoy sex, pain during intercourse, insufficient vaginal lubrication or, even if sexually aroused, a failure to achieve an orgasm leading to feelings of inadequacy, depression and alienation. According to The Sexual Advice Association, sexual problems affect around 50% of women, making it a common problem that remains largely unheard of. It seems that most women think they are the only ones in the world to have these problems because all the magazine articles and media coverage are about amazing sex and fantastic orgasms, but there are thousands of women out there who are in the same situation.
Many women still fail to seek treatment due to embarrassment or fear that health professionals will misunderstand them. Talking about sexual dysfunction can become a great obstacle and it is usual for couples to avoid talking about it, choosing to ignore it rather than face the awkwardness of discussion for fear of abnormality. Indeed it is only as a last resort when their relationships are at breaking point that they search for help.
Fortunately times appear to be changing and women desperate to improve their quality of life are beginning to take action and seek help. Mal Weeraratne founder of Tantric Journey is a specialist in the field of female sexual dysfunction and works as a trained therapist, helping women overcome their difficulties through Sexual Healing & Relationship Therapy.
Through his Tantric Journey work Mal has helped to release many women from their negative emotional restraints and open a new gateway of self-actualization. He has treated thousands of women from across the globe to overcome physical inhibitions such as sexual dysfunction, insomnia, inability to achieve orgasm, stresses, body aches and vagainism. Aiding them to improve relationships or increase intimacy with their partners and even successfully find partners. Whilst increasing self confidence in women by defeating their deteriorative subconscious ways and allowing them to enter realm of positive energy.
Deborah Sundahl, author and sex educator states, “The negative messages are stored physically, as memories, in the body. By understanding how this “body memory” operates, woman can use a valuable physical technique that can help heal and protect them from all kinds of assaults to their sexuality, from minor to serious”.
The ‘body memory’ stated by Deborah is the same (deeply seated issues) that Mal Weeraratne works on through different stages of therapy.
The objective of the Tantric Journey treatment is to awaken the Kundalini also called Sexual energy of a woman. With the essence the treatment being female ejaculation, which is the expulsion of negative female sexual energy during emotional release therapy. The topic of female ejaculation has been a hotly debated topic in sex therapy circles and although it is a subject that is prone to much mythology; there are supporting researches to state it is not incontinence or a defect of a woman, but instead a natural process that every woman is anatomically capable of. Mal has done abundant research on female ejaculation and its benefits. In addition to his research he has plenty of immediate experience and knowledge on positive outcomes of female ejaculation through his vast clientele.
Key to the success of Tantric Journey is Mal’s respect and understanding of his client’s needs and condition. The treatments are performed in a safe and secure environment at a pace that is defined and agreed by the client. Mal says , ‘’I can appreciate the fact, that for many people it may be scary to start this journey. Tantric Journey is similar to taking off in a space shuttle. It’s very noisy at the beginning, making the whole earth vibrate and with plenty of smoke around. But as it goes up into the blue sky through the dark and gloomy clouds, it becomes less and less noisy and uncomfortable. When it enters space it really becomes a smooth, effortless, pleasurable journey.’’
The treatment is a culmination of Tantric Bodywork, breathing techniques, body movement and sound therapy, but it starts with a long consultation where you can discuss, What you wish to achieve from the session, What your fears are and What your boundaries are. It can be difficult to face the Fear – Guilt – Shame – Anger – Mistrust that are at the root of sexual dysfunction, but living in a perpetual state of anxiety, feeling concern about sexual performance, encountering relationship problems, living with depression, feelings of guilt, or the effects of a past sexual trauma is not conducive to a happy life. All women have the right to freedom from sexual dysfunction and a fulfilling love life.
