Today we’d like to introduce you to Carl Jordan.
Hi Carl, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I began my career in wellness in 1999 when I graduated from massage therapy school and went straight to work in a resort spa and a small hotel spa. Since then, I have worked at many types of spas and massage clinics in a variety of roles from massage therapist to spa manager and now as a business owner. I continue to learn and evolve in my career and as an individual, which is what led me to infusing both my life and career with Tantra.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I would say my career has been a fairly smooth process, but it has been a long process to find what I am truly the most passionate about in this type of work. Over the years I have learned and practiced many modalities of massage and bodywork, worked my way up through spa management, and then gave up management to go back to providing healing services. Then after working in franchised massage clinics for years, I found myself wanting more creative freedom in the services in provide.
It was during the first year of the pandemic after the clinic I worked at closed, that I decided to infuse my personal practices of meditation, chakra energy work and breathwork into my massage and bodywork. The clinic later reopened, but by that time, I had discovered what I was doing was called Tantra. Tantra then became my passion on a personal and professional level.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I provide Neo-Tantric healing services at my business East West Tantra. These services are a fusion of eastern and western healing modalities like; massage, bodywork, stretching, aromatherapy, meditation, breathwork, chakra balancing, energy work and more. The work I do is considered Neo-Tantra, because it is not specific to any historical tantric lineage or philosophy, it is my own interpretation and my own unique way developed along with the knowledge from my 21 years of working on bodies.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up mostly with a single mother, I believe I learned a lot from her. My mother was always trying to take care of others and still does to this day. I love to help others feel better and live a more full and passionate life. I do this through my work and as a personal goal.
