How can reflexology help you?
The body has the ability to heal itself. Following illness, stress, injury or disease, it is in a state of ‘imbalance’ and vital energy pathways are blocked, preventing the body from functioning effectively. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural equilibrium and encourage healing.
At Born Again Sports Therapy we use hands only to apply gentle pressure to the feet. The application and the effective therapy is unique to each client. Sensitive, trained hands will detect tiny deposits and imbalances in the feet and by working on these points; we can release blockages and restore the free flow of energy to the whole body. Tensions are eased and circulation is improved. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself at its own pace, often counteracting a lifetime of misuse.
Who can benefit from reflexology?
Since reflexology treats the whole person, not the symptoms of the disease, most people benefit from treatment. Reflexology brings relief to a wide range of acute and chronic conditions and is suitable for all ages. Once your body is in-tune, it is wise to have regular treatments in order to help maintain health and well-being. An increasing number of people are using this safe, natural therapy as a way of relaxing, balancing and harmonising the body.
What will happen when you have treatment at Born Again Sports Therapy?
On your first visit to Born Again Sports Therapy we will provide a free consultation. We then begin to work on your feet, or hands if necessary, noting problem areas. There may be discomfort in some places but this will be fleeting and is an indication of congestion or imbalance in a corresponding part of the body. For the most part, the sensation is pleasant and soothing. Reflexology will relax you while stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Usually a treatment session lasts for about 45 minutes. A course of treatment varies in length depending on your body’s needs. We will discuss this with you at the first session. After the first treatment or two your body may respond in a very definite way: you may have a feeling of well- being and relaxation; or you may feel lethargic, nauseous or tearful but this is transitory. It is, however, vital information for you as it shows how your body is responding to treatment. Overall the treatment and after effects of reflexology are very enjoyable and relaxing.
