#the session work

This is for YOU. Medical Massage. Bound Bodywork. Repterapi (therapeutic rope). Hypnosis. They are all ways to serve. To be a guiding hand on your journey. A safe space to let the guard down and just rest, or to face old fears, or to experience something completely new. The session work is my exploration in how to serve another in a one-on-one meeting. What I offer is the expertise that I’ve built up over a lifetime. As a lesson, or an experience, or something in-between. Selected, tailored, and curated just for you. You pay for my time, so I can focus on you.

Book a session

The price is 1200 SEK / 120 Euro per hour. The sessions are offered at my home studio in Stockholm. A standard session is three hours long. It is possible to come alone or with a partner or friend. It is always tailored to your needs and desires.

I offer a package price because I prefer to work recurring with clients, and that has proven itself very successful – three sessions for the price of two.

If you have questions, please e-mail andy@andyburu.se.

See the terms and conditions below.

What do people say?

Are you clear with your intention?

Please consider why you are booking a session with me. Therapeutic exchange is essential to me. Because since you are paying me, the focus is 100% on you and your needs.

Once I have formed a therapeutic relationship, I will not engage privately with the same person.

If you are curious about me as a private person, want me to teach in your local community, or simply want to flirt, please contact me here.

When do you want to come?

Rescheduling and cancellation policy

You can cancel your session for free until two weeks before the appointment; after that, there is a cancellation fee of 1200 SEK. You can reschedule for free until two days before the appointment; after that, there is a rescheduling fee of 1200 SEK. If you fail to show up without prior notice, you will be charged 3600 SEK for the full session.

Liability agreement

To have a safer session, I understand that it is my responsibility to.

Before the session, state my boundaries, emotional and physical needs, and relevant traumatic experiences related to power, control and sexuality. And explain my ability to communicate during a session.

During the session, monitor my emotional and physical well-being and verbalize if a change is needed. Andy might be good at reading body language, but he is a horrible mind-reader.

After the session, if you realize that you had an unwanted experience or couldn’t communicate during the session, give this feedback to Andy as soon as possible.

If you want to remain anonymous, you can do it through one of these contacts. They all have an understanding of Andy’s work and a long experience working with similar modalities; Carl-Johan Rehbinder, Linda Örtengren and Lin Holmquist.

Finally, remain aware that bondage, BDSM and tantra can be dangerous activities. Both physically and emotionally. And even if Andy is a professional with many years of experience, the client is ultimately responsible for their experience.

If you want to know more about the risks involved, you read the following writings; Power, abuse and therapy, When does BDSM become destructive? and Playing safer.

Package deal details

After a session, you have three days to accept the package deal. You will receive one invoice for two sessions and then have a third session for free. You have one year to use your sessions; after that, they are expired. It is recommended to do the three sessions within a six-week period.

Musings about #the session work

Things to know about trauma when tying ropes (2022)

Perceiving trauma as a protection mechanism, I think, helps. Someone had a shocking experience and is trying to avoid it again. And it makes sense; however, our nervous system doesn’t know if the circumstances change. Simply the difference between a kid being forcefully wrapped in a blanket until it’s impossible…

Fetishization of vulnerability (2022)

So this fetishization of vulnerability, what happens when it happens outside a defined container? If anything, it makes relationships stuck in fixed polarity. So, for example, someone stuck in the rescuer role will never have access to expressing vulnerability. Instead, they might find themselves constantly on their tip-toes, waiting to…

An anatomy of yes and no (2022)

But how do I know when to say “No”? One way is feeling my nervous system and recognizing how it feels when I’m getting towards the borders of my window of tolerance. This is a very embodied approach. What if I want to say no before getting close to my…

Bodywork and intimacy (2022)

In my experience, intimacy doesn’t need to be sexual. Sexuality in relationship to bodywork is already complicated because of prostitution, unfaithfulness in relationships, and how it’s portrayed today with over-dramatic fiction and pornography. Retreats and play parties are outstanding opportunities to learn about and celebrate sexuality; doing it inside…

The story of Valentina, my third ritual (2021)

The goddess in a masculine world (2021)

“She was no demi-mondaine who had taken a pseudonym to wage war upon the masculine sex, but the goddess of Love in person.” – Severin, in Venus in furs I recently wrote about my most archetypical client, “the masculine woman in the masculine world”. The feedback was excellent, so I’ll in this…

Transference and being put on pedestals (2021)

There is a rule at many of the events where I teach and co-create; that one may not abuse their position of power. Of course, the most obvious interpretation is; do not fuck your students. But there are many more layers to it, especially when working in the field of…

The masculine woman in a masculine world (2021)

I’m often asked; why people pay to be bound in rope, and the answer depends heavily on the person paying. And most of my clients are female, about 75%, I would estimate, and this musing is a fictional description of a much too common life situation.

Practicing surrender (2020)

My friend Michael is making an app called reLove that acts as a first point of contact for people curious about conscious relating, intimacy and embodiment. He asked me make a short introduction to practicing surrender – so here is my take on it. I hope you enjoy it.

Power, abuse and therapy (2020)

BBC recently released their short documentary about me and my therapeutic rope bondage, and that led to a bunch of question around the subject of power, abuse and therapy. Being the victim of abuse is having ones power taken away. If the abuse is repetitive, the victim usually normalizes the…

In search for awe (2020)

Awe is more complicated—awe as in both awful and awesome. At first, I thought about it as a thin line or a sweet-spot between awful and awesome. Now I realize that it is both at once. Where pain becomes pleasure and pleasure becomes pain, and I want and don’t want…

Book thoughts: In an Unspoken Voice (2019)

I’ve recently been reading this newer book by Peter A. Levine on “how the body releases trauma and restores goodness.”. It feels like a follow-up on one of my previous favourite books of his, Walking the Tiger: Healing Trauma, as it goes deeper into how the body, mind and spirit…

And you nervous? (2019)

Then you are most likely tensed in your body too. Many session first-timers tell me that they are nervous. Usually, it was excitement that turned into nervousness as they approached the session. The bodily response to nervousness and enthusiasm are more or less the same. The heart rate rises, first sweat…
