Reiki is an ancient therapy developed in the East. The method of receiving a Reiki treatment is very simple. The recipient remains fully clothed, either lying on a treatment table or in a sitting/standing position, while the practitioner lightly places his/her hands on a sequence of pressure points around the body. This is a safe and gentle procedure that works well alongside other training methods and treatments.
From a scientific point of view, Reiki produces results on an electromagnetic level. From recent research, it appears Reiki acts to electromagnetically jump-start the body’s own healing process by producing changes in vibrational frequency that, in turn, stimulate physical changes in the body. Basically, Reiki enables the body to experience a truly restful state. Breathing becomes slower and deeper, allowing oxygen to reach all the vital organs and cells. Circulation improves and any blockages and toxins are eliminated. Energy flows freely and effectively, re-balancing body and mind.
Reiki won’t make you win or lose, but it can help teams or individuals be better prepared, both mentally and physically. Reiki can assist the body’s natural healing abilities and generally give an overall sense of balance. It could be a secret weapon for today’s athletes, coaches, and trainers. Reiki is fast, simple, and effective and will help you feel better, and perform at the top of your game.
