Please also see services page.
Divine Touch Tantra Faq’s
What do I need to do for my first Session?
If you practice any form of meditation, please continue your practice. While in your meditation ask your higher self what it is that you need to most learn now. This will set an intention for you as well as Barbara. If you do not practice meditation come with an open mind, ready to learn more about your own self. Do not come with expectations based on what you may read on the internet or in a video on YouTube about Tantra. There is much misguided information on the world wide web. Not all information is accurate and can be skewed by western ego centered thinking. The point of receiving Tantra work is that the practitioner facilitates through his/her use of touch on the client’s body in such a way that offers the client a new way to see, hear, feel, know, their OWN parts of the body. Rather than looking at parts of our bodies as somehow separate. Practitioner works on helping client know more of who they are! The physical, mental, emotional, and most importantly their own individualized Spirit. Their Mighty I AM!!
Why Book a 90-Minute Massage
When you purchase an hour session in a salon, you will typically receive 50 minutes instead of the full 60 because of time to change sheets, wash hands and use restroom. Most likely you will not receive the full dedication to all body parts. Read More…

This is due to scammers, spammers, and those who attempt to entrap. All new clients are required to connect via contact form FIRST before scheduling in another manner. Text is for established clients and meant solely for appointment scheduling, rescheduling, or cancelling. If something is troubling you, causing confusion, a phone call is in order.

Draping is required and you may undress to your comfort level.
Do you have a shower facility I can use before or after appointment?
Yes, Please inform Barbara when scheduling.
What is the difference between your Spirit style and Swedish massage?
Swedish massage is the most basic massage one can receive. It is soft to medium pressure. No stretching. Spirit style is very similar to Esalen as it uses long flowing strokes all around the body. Very rhythmic, like a dance and can include stretching, thai, TPR, myofascial, etc. A well variety of techniques may be used as Barbara is intuitively guided.
How do you work payment on your Divine Touch Tantra service?
All new clients are required to pay a non-refundable minimum deposit of $100 within 48-72 hrs using a major credit card – Visa, MC or Discover or PayPal link on www.goddesoftherose.com Deposits are non refundable. If you reschedule within same week your deposit is secure. If a cancel is requested a second time deposit may not be used for a future appointment. Remainder of payment is expected at time of session. For the convenience of credit card usage a 3% fee is added. Once day, time and length of session is agreed upon please take care of deposit. When confirmation of funds are received a health intake will be emailed. Please fill it out, email back or print and bring with you. Respect rates. Do not attempt to treat services as a yard sale. Barbara does not barter her services.
Tipping is appreciated but not expected. Tipping shows your appreciation. It says:
- Thank you, You went above and beyond stated service.
- You performed this service exceptionally well.
- Tipping is a token of gratitude for the benefits the patron enjoys.
Do you offer Goddess Worship?

Are there things I should know before my session?
- Come with an attitude of respect
- Drop expectations, judgments, and be willing to go beyond the limitations of who you think you are.
- Drop expectations and judgments as to what to expect from sessions as each person that comes has different visions, dreams, desires, issues, questions regarding their own life.This is about YOUR soul.
- Have a sincere desire to enter the mysteries of this ceremony and be willing to dive deep into yourself.
- Enter Barbara’s temple with an open heart and a beginners mind.
- Remove shoes prior to entering Goddess Rose’s space.
What should I expect during / from the session?
You can expect a caring and loving session. When you come to Barbara with an open mind and heart, you will feel love move through her hands onto and within your body. The work Barbara does can effect you on a deep level. Clients of hers tell her how different she is. We suggest READING THE TESTIMONIALS. Tantra is about being aware, becoming more aware, learning to be more mindful. Barbara has been involved in this work for ten years so she is quite capable of helping you in your journey.
How should I treat Barbara throughout the session?
Barbara is a Coach, Healer, Guide and Therapist. She is here to guide and support you in your life. Clients need to respect Barbara at all times. This includes during every session as well when conversing with her over the phone, in email, and text. Due to sensitive nature some clients hire Barbara for, under no circumstances shall client ask questions sexual in nature when not in session. When you are respectful, honest and have integrity, all sessions will play out harmoniously. Every session does not necessarily happen the way it happens in previous sessions. You are a Spiritual being living inside a human body. Therefore there are times when in a session you may receive a modality in one session but not another. Refrain from asking Barbara personal questions. She is your guide and healer. If she offers an example of her life, it is expressed solely as an example to inspire and motivate you for change.
How many sessions should I receive before noticing any benefits?
The best way to know how many sessions to have before receiving benefit is to just do it. It is individualized. Barbara also offers coaching. Like seeing a traditional therapist, or starting an exercise routine, you need to be committed to a practice for a duration of time before noticing its full rewards.
What do you wear during session?
This is not an appropriate question Barbara is obligated to answer. She will be comfortable in what she chooses to wear during any session. At no time before, during or after session may you question Barbara’s form of attire, nor may you attempt to discuss through any form of communication such as email, texts, phone calls. This is a sign of disrespect towards her as a professional and a woman. As well, it is considered a form of sexual harassment.
