Ama-Pura's FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)
1. What is meant by the term "healthy sexuality" or "sexual health"?
The WHO definition since 1975 states: "a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled." (see WHO Website)
2. Does AnuKan® massage have something to do with sex?
No. Such a massage has absolutely nothing to do with sex, but very much with the discovery of your own sexuality. It is superficially about body perception, deceleration, sensual touch and "enjoyment training".
3. Do I have to be completely naked during AnuKan® massage?
No. You decide for yourself how far you are willing to go. Of course, it is beneficial for the holistic effect of a full body massage to be naked. But if you do not want that, you simply leave your panties (and bra) on. Either one where it does not matter soaking with oil or a one-way panty.
4. Why is AnuKan® massage a healing massage?
AnuKan® stands for the combination of the two themes "Sensual Touch" and "Health" which have had so far barely any contact in public perception. If sensory contact is practiced in a certain way, health-promoting effects can be achieved. You also gain awareness, focus and inner peace.
5. Can a therapist already prescribe Anukan® massages?
The sex therapists lack an offer, which in addition to the conversation also includes the body and the immediate experience. Here it would be useful to include an accompanying massage in the therapy. Unfortunately, the health insurance funds are not yet prepared to finance such offers, as there is also a lack of sufficient study work in this field. So far, there is only one successful example of cooperation (and reimbursement) of an advanced clinic in which a patient found a new form of sexuality after a trauma.
But the Institute of Body Sex Therapy AnuKan® (IKST) was launched at 8th July 2018 by Katrin Laux and Ph.D. Frank Pietzcker. Main tasks are the elaboration and development of such a therapy with the same name, its propagation and the implementation of various training modules. Further tasks of the institute will be settled for relevant education and knowledge transfer (see institut-anukan.de).
