Playing “Footsie” for Infertility


According to the National Center for Health Statistics, approximately 4.5 million couples experience infertility each year.

Some common causes include: faulty egg or sperm production, structural issues with the reproduction tract, and psychological factors such as stress and anxiety.

There are several effective treatment methods for most infertility issues, and with appropriate diagnosis and treatment,  over half of infertile couples will conceive their own child.

Coupling traditional treatment with Reflexology can help Mother nature along.

By stimulating the reflex areas to the reproductive organs in both male and female partners, you will be strengthening the entire reproductive system, unblocking any areas of congestion so that the energy flows freely.

Couples having difficulty getting pregnant can often feel helpless, which can cause stress and tension. Sharing reflexology with one another can be a special bonding time, bringing additional intimacy.


“Playing Footsie”


*Each of the male and female reflex points are in similar locations. Please review the Foot Map Page to familiarize yourselves.

Solar Plexus

To relax the entire body, letting go of emotional stress

Pituitary Gland

To regulate the hormonal system


To let go of all nervous tension


To strengthen the reproductive system

Note: these points can sometimes be very sensitive – so use an extra gentle touch


To strengthen the reproductive sytem

Fallopian tubes/Vas Deferens

To strengthen the reproductive system

Note: the vas deferens are located within the fallopian tubes reflex point



*Using your thumb or index finger – with a firm, yet gentle pressure – press and rotate on these reflex points.

*Work each of these reflex points thoroughly – then go back and repeat 2 more times.

*Because reflexology is cumulative, ideally, it would be best if you could find the time to use it every other day.

*Be sure to take your time and make this an enjoyable, relaxing experience.

Note: you may wish to light a few candles and add some soothing music.

When playing “footsie” together

*Mix 2 drops of each essential oil to 2 tbs. of jojoba carrier oil into a small mixing bowl (blend well).

*Rub a small amount onto each foot and then apply reflexology.

*The aroma will enhance the experience.


Caution Care

~Use only pure essential oils.

~Do not use any essential oil directly on the skin without first diluting with a carrier oil.

~External use only.

~Avoid contact with the eyes.


Allow the natural gifts of Reflexology and Aromatherapy to assist and support you as you move towards creation.

They will give you that special time with one another – adding more love and tenderness…to what’s already there.


Wishing you a beautiful creation!

Be well

  1. This is really intersting Ron, though I won’t be needing any help in that direction – being well over 50 and having had a hysterectomy 😉

    Thanks for your comment on my post yesterday about my grandson – it meant a lot! x

  2. Afternoon Akelamalu~

    You NEVER know though…you could be the next MIRACLE!!!!!


    And your welcome my friend…your post touched me very deeply yesterday…it actually made me cry (in a good way). I could see that he was a very “special” little soul!

    I hope you had a wonderful day visiting his sight.

    As always…thank you for stopping by to say hi!

    Hope you have a great weekend Akelamalu!

    Be well,

  3. thank you – thank you ron!

    akelamalu, ron is right…. you never know… with the advances in medicine today and to come, the “organic” uterus might become obsolete… yeesh… anyhoo… check out this article about a 67 year old woman giving birth to twins… oh and let us not forget the world’s oldest woman…

    ron, on a personal note, i value this post… reflexology shared between a loving couple provides an abundance of benefits- decreased stress (and the chemicals produced by stress), increase of targeted hormone levels (stimulated as a result of the process), and feels so darn good when the sensual touch is employed…

    i think the process of consistent reflexology would break the cycle of stress that occurs when a couple is coping with the big “I”… the stress of allopathic infertility treatments alone can significantly impede conception- all the testing, planning, staging, hoping, waiting…

    …ah..but physical soothing touch to release tension/open channels/direct energy, letting go, believing in the greater plan of life, and being detached seems so much more promising… so organic

    …ah.. well, i’m off to have a good weekend!

    i hope everyone will have a good one as well!

    hugs to all
