Reflexology is a powerful massage tool provide valuable information about your body.

Our fertility massage has a large component that works with reflexology of the feet. We use a specially formulated massage lotion and castor oil blend to further the cleansing effects on the feet. We use deeper, pointed pressure to the various areas that impact the endocrine, reproductive and digestive systems of the body.
Another important aspect of our reflexology work is the intention in therapeutic benefits to increase fertility, so we do go back and forth to stimulate the right and left side of the body at the same time. A more relaxing massage may complete one foot prior to moving on to the next, and that can loses some of the therapeutic benefits.

Ticklish Feet and Reflexology
A question we often get about reflexology is “will I enjoy reflexology even though I am ticklish?” And the answer is usually yes! Reflexology is usually a deeper pressure massage that bypasses the sensors that are ticklish. You can it on yourself to see the difference. First, try a very light stroke with the intention to ticket. Then, try a deeper focused pressure to one are of the foot with the intent to massage. The direct pressure and intention usually are enough to not be ticklish!
