"Mantak Chia and William U. Wei note early in the book that Daoists regard the use of sexual energy not as a moral but as a health issue. They explore and explain the yin and yang of the sexes that leaves so many confused and dismayed. . . . It goes into great depth about physiological aspects of reflexology, sexual exercise, and general compatability, and details a range of practices and postures that address the health and general well-being of sexual partners."

From the Back Cover
SEXUALITY / TAOISM
The Taoists have written and taught on the subject of sexual energy for the last five thousand years, observing that nature is full of creative, life-giving sexual energy. By combining the classic Taoist sexual texts with modern reflexology theory, Mantak Chia, coauthor of The Multi-Orgasmic Man
, presents a way for any individual or couple to better understand their sexual energy and to cultivate that energy for health and well being through sexual reflexology.
Reflexology is based on the premise that all our organs have reflex points on other parts of the body. It is most often associated with massage of the hands and feet. Yet the most powerful reflex points are on the sexual organs. Sexual Reflexology
shows how to use the sexual reflex points in lovemaking, allowing sexual intercourse to become a form of ecstatic acupressure. In this way the entire body provides the sexual organs with energy and in return the entire body is stimulated with healing energy.
This book demonstrates and discusses a variety of Healing Love practices that cultivate sexual energy in order to bring vitality into one’s life and relationships. The authors describe diagnostic techniques to reveal compatibility between male and female partners and also present specific exercises that correct sexual imbalances and weaknesses. By using the fifteen sexual healing positions, specific health issues can be addressed during lovemaking, such as improving circulation and reducing digestive problems. The authors also present specific hand positions for drawing sexual energy into the brain while performing the Healing Love practices, as well as postures that strengthen the senses and organs, and exercises that enable men and women to maintain their vital essence and enhance the life force in their bodies. They also share postures from the ancient Taoist text The Classic of the Arcane Maid
and techniques from the Art of the Bedchamber
practiced in fourteenth-century China.
Following the practices presented in Sexual Reflexology
will not only strengthen the sexual organs through exercise and massage, it will also enhance sexual pleasure by creating a more vigorous and healthy body that is more responsive to intense emotions and spiritual energy. Sexual reflexology allows sexual energy to provide nourishment for the totality of ourselves--our body, our mind, and our spirit.
