Martina Weiser


Martina initiated the Trusted Bodywork Platform.

Since 1997, she has been managing Germany’s largest institute of holistic massage and coaching – Ananda in Cologne. In this time, she has been able to gain a very good impression of some 500 bodywork practitioners and their work, both during everyday massage work and in annual training sessions with different external teachers. During the last 20 years at Ananda, an estimated 50,000 massages were given. Martina also knows numerous trainers personally, and her years of experience have led her to understand exactly makes a training course suitable for real practical work in this field.

Martina is one of the founding members of the German Tantric Massage Association and she was an active board member there for several years, with a particular interest in quality management and public relations work.

In 2009 she took part in the first Training for Certified Sexological Bodywork in Europe with Joseph Kramer, Isa Magdalena and Didi Liebold. Already back then, the idea was born to create a platform for qualified practitioners of different backgrounds.

Michaela is one of the few female pioneers in the field of sexual healing work for men and women. She has written two bestselling books on lingam massage and yoni massage (available in German, English and Hungarian).

Since 1997, Michaela has been giving training courses in tantra massage for professional massage practitioners. (For more, visit AnandaWave.) She is committed to maintaining high standards in tantra massage training within the professional association for tantra massage. In 2015 the Administrative Court in Cologne decided that her training course is a proper and correct preparation for a profession.

She is a great support to this project, advising us in our selection of further recognised training courses.

TMV - Tantramassage Verband e. V.

German Tantric Massage Association

The German "Tantramassage Verband" (= Tantric Massage Association) was registered in 2004. Practitioners and trainers worked intensely on the development of training concepts and quality criteria. 

In 2010 we launched the Training Concept for the profession of “Tantra Massage Practitioner” (Tantramasseur/in TMV®). Since 2016 this professional designation has also been protected under German trademark law.

Our experience from many years of association work helped to create this platform, making it useful for other high-quality training practitioners.
