There are no exceptions to this rule - Energy Alchemy and its teachers abide by it fully in accordance with the original tantric teachings.
How do I know if I have blockages?
It is safe to say that in these modern times everyone has blockages to some degree or another. Blockages are areas in our energetic structure where energy cannot flow or is stuck.

Tantra Massage is known for its ability to release these blockages, known or unknown, in a harmonious and effective way.
