Reiki is a gentle, natural treatment that powerfully transmits unlimited healing energy to the athlete. Reiki releases energetic blockages, tension, and toxins from the body and is deeply restorative. It looks a lot like massage but it’s not the same. Reiki uses energy, which not only affects the muscles; it deeply penetrates every cell of the body ignites the body’s own power to relax and heal from within.
Reiki is completely safe and has no known negative side effects. Due to the supportive nature of Reiki, it is a wonderful complement to anything the athlete is already choosing as part of his/her health care and recovery regimen. Rather than tackling symptoms of pain or injury, Reiki addresses the root causes. Once the root cause of the issue is resolved, the body eliminates the effects of the imbalance and thus heals the body and mind naturally.
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.
