Sports reflexology – athletes / injury

Sports reflexology whether you’re participating in sporting activities to keep fit, training for an event, semi pro or a pro-athlete, reflexology can be extremely beneficial to incorporate into your regime and recovery post event.

Sports reflexology helps to increase blood flow and encourage lymphatic drainage. Research from the Bonash University, Australia discovered it can remove lactic acid from the legs four times faster than massage helping post event recovery. Increased blood circulation helps remove toxins and increase oxygen and nutrients, helping to support the body’s natural healing process and promote recovery from injuries, it may also assist in preventing common complaints from extended muscle exertion such as aches, pains, cramps and spasms.

Sports Reflexology may help with pain relief or reducing pain associated with injury. It promotes deep relaxation, easing tension, giving your body time to rest and heal and it may improve sleep. The effect of stress has a very detrimental effect on the systems of the body, reducing blood flow and oxygen causing energy to be depleted and your body to not function as well as it should.

For all types of athletes and sports personnel, reflexology can have a positive effect to overall health and emotional wellbeing, physical performance and recovery.
