It’s SO important as a runner to put effort into your recovery process in order to keep your body and muscles in check! The process is yes, a process, but it’s one that shouldn’t be rushed or skipped over especially as a runner that is or has experienced injuries.
What we suggest here at DASHA® is making the recovery into a routine. One of our favorite recovery treatments is Reflexology. At DASHA® our Reflexology for the Feet treatment focuses on massaging the feet to promote integration of body and mins. It relieves stress, alleviates tension and improves circulation. Studies also show that Reflexology for the Feet allevies lactic acid from the legs faster than a standard sports massage. This is especially important for marathon runners!
Other benefits of reflexology for runners include…
- Pain-reducing effects
- Increase blood circulation
- Promoting oxygen supply
- Promotion of better sleep
- Lower blood pressure
- Improves focus
- Promotes cholesterol reduction
Because running affects the WHOLE body system Reflexology is a also a great way to balance and relax the body’s systems. The foot contains 7,800 nerves, each one corresponding to a different part of the body. This is what makes it extremely important to give your feet the proper care they deserve.
