Reiki for
athletes

Reiki is the secret sauce: Reiki is the key ingredient missing from most athletes’ health regimen, that can heighten their level of performance. When we talk about what makes an athlete go from good to great, Reiki therapy can be the difference.  

The health benefits of Reiki are becoming more recognized every day due to successful integration into hospitals and other health care organizations. Reiki is a recognized modality within the health care system and nurses can even receive continuing education credits when certified in approved Reiki training courses. It has also gained popularity due to recognition through media coverage, such as being featured on The Dr. Oz show. Top professional athletes in the NFL, NBA, MLB, UFC have used Reiki.

Reiki is simple, painless, non-invasive and complementary to other healing modalities.

The intangible state of ‘getting in the zone’ is one of the greatest benefits of Reiki therapy for athletes; below are some other valuable benefits:

“The longer you’ve played, the longer it takes for your body to recover, and the more I think you need extra assistance, more things helping you recover. A lot of guys get massages, a lot of guys get acupuncture…I think guys should start adding Reiki to that.”

DURING A SESSION

During the session, the person being treated is fully clothed and lies comfortably on a massage table with a pillow or bolster under his/her knees to protect the low back from undue stress. The session begins with the recipient lying face up while the practitioner places his/her hands over strategic body positions designed to direct the flow of energy to the chakras and associated organ and endocrine systems of the body.

A Reiki session lasts about one hour and entering a deep meditative state of mind is a normal response to receiving Reiki. This allows for the body to come into the rest and repair state that allows for healing to occur.
