Reiki for
athletes

Reiki can be a key ingredient, when added to an 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.  

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

Reiki allows for a comprehensive approach to athletic care as a specialized service for professional and student-athletes. 

Benefits include:

  • Boosts concentration and calmness under pressure

  • Reduces aches, pains, soreness and inflammation in the body

  • Improves post-workout recovery and fatigue

  • Speeds up recovery time after injuries or illness

  • Restores unbalanced sleep patterns

The health benefits of Reiki are becoming more recognized every day due to successful integration into hospitals and other health care organizations. 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 are using Reiki to gain a competitive edge.

“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. The session begins with the practitioner placing his/her hands over strategic body positions designed to direct the flow of energy to the joints, energy centers and associated organ and endocrine systems of the body.

A Reiki session lasts 30-75 minutes where the recipient typically enters a deep, relaxed state. This allows for the body to come into the rest and repair state that is very beneficial for the athlete.
