How To Enhance Libido With Reflexology

Posted: February 7, 2011 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

Touch has a lot to do with sensuality and vice versa. Reflexology is an ancient method of holistic healing that believes that specific ‘reflex’ points on feet, hands and ears correspond to different systems and organs in the body and that applying pressure onto these points helps in alleviating physical and psychological problems.

Reflexology is known to step up libido in men and women by:
  • Eliminating stress and inducing a state of deep relaxation
  • Boosting circulation, especially to the sexual organs
  • Restoring physical, emotional and hormonal balance
  • Ridding the body of toxins and facilitating the smooth flow of sexual energy
Reflexology focuses on overall well-being as opposed to localized or symptomatic relief. It aims to clear any blockage of energy in the body and release pent up negative emotions to promote health and healing.

Reflexology and Sexuality:

The areas corresponding to sexual desire and libido are the big toe and the ankle.
Applying pressure onto the big toe is believed to stimulate the release of sexual hormones while the area around the ankles is responsible for genital arousal.
You don’t need to be a professional to try this out – just massage your partner’s feet and observe his or her response. This exercise helps you understand each other on a whole new level and makes you sensitive to each others’ needs.
Reflexology is a completely natural technique which can be safely carried out at home. Even those who are not sure of its benefits wouldn’t mind some loving foot play!
Here is a romantic combination of essential oils for libido, that will make this experience complete:
Mix 1 tablespoon of carrier oil with: 1 drop patchouli essential oil 3 drops ylang ylang essential oil 2 drops orange essential oil.
Apply liberally on feet during massage.
