Background & Qualifications
My name is Tatiana Aitken. I am a Certified Tantric Journey Educator, having completed my training with the London based school of Healing & Awakening. I have been facilitating Tantra & Conscious Sexuality workshops and retreats in the North East of England since 2015, and offering sessions to individuals and couples for the last 4 years. To date, I have given hundreds of individual sessions, and have worked with many diverse clients on a wide range of issues. This has given me invaluable practical experience, and I have learnt much from my clients themselves.
In addition to this, I hold a diploma in psychosexual therapy and have completed numerous courses in the fields of human sexuality and mindfulness over the past decade. These include training with the Art of Living, International Society of Temple Arts, Human Awareness Institute, Ipsalu Tantra and Tantra teachers such as Jan Day. I have also done the Embodied Trauma Healing course with Ralf Marzen, de-armouring training with De’an Matuka, pelvic area release course with Marielle Spronck and an Introduction to NVC (non violent communication) with NVC Academy. This journey has taught me the importance of living with awareness, an attitude centred in appreciation, and the use of many practical tools.
Prior to going on this exploration, I had left my successful career in the oil industry, where I had worked following my graduation from university. The resignation was due to wanting to follow my true passions in life: being healthy, happy and doing what I really love. I qualified as a nutritional adviser in 2009 and have since been fascinated by the ability of the human body to heal itself, given the chance.
I live in Teesside and offer tantric massage sessions in this area, within easy driving distance of Leeds, Newcastle, York & Durham, as well as offering sessions in London.
As part of my commitment to ongoing training and development, I am currently studying the Living NVC (Non Violent Communication) course to learn more about effective communication tools. I am also training with the AIR school of breathwork.

“Tatiana provides a professional tantric massage service to all those who want to enjoy the benefits of genuine and effective tantric therapy. A particular attraction for me is that the sessions are typically 4 to 5 hours of duration allowing sufficient time for that very important energy connection between client and practitioner to be established before the massage begins. From there, through ecstatic touch, your body’s energy (including the most powerful energy source, your sexual energy) is gently aroused and expanded throughout your whole body giving rise to enhanced, physical, emotional, mental and sexual well-being. All touch is by consent and whatever emotions arise are OK; nothing is judged to be right or wrong. It’s a beautiful and pleasurable time where you can be your true self and experience a sense of liberation and fulfilment that you have never had before.” Peter, Lincolnshire, Education Consultant
“The work was very good. Upon reflection now, a few days after the massage the level of professionalism becomes clearer. Each detail of the massage is explained before commencement and this helps to create an environment of trust and compassion. Throughout the session I felt fully involved in a healing process.” Seamus C
“Tatiana is a highly skilled and dedicated practitioner who carries out her work with great attention to detail and the needs of the client. She holds the space with remarkable integrity, empathy and professionalism. Everything is carefully explained and negotiated and as her client I always felt safe and fully in control of my choices. I felt in extremely safe and nurturing hands and left feeling empowered and extremely peaceful.” Anon
