Reiki Within Sport

Reiki can help with sport, whether you are an individual or a member of a team. Reiki can improve all aspects of training, performance, stress and injury no matter what level you participate at.

To begin to understand how Reiki can help, it’s important to know Reiki’s significant properties.

  • Reiki will provide feelings of peace and harmony to the body, mind and spirit.



The Sports Person, And Their Performance To maintain and achieve great performance within your sport often dictates an intense and dedicated dietary, training and lifestyle regime. These factors alone may produce high stress levels and unexplained tiredness. Reiki works to alleviate the stresses of training and sport by working on your physical, mental, and emotional needs.

Reiki can do this by:

  • Reducing feelings of stress and tension, enabling you to focus on your aims, goals and objectives.
  • Aiding and reducing physical recovery time from injury, pain and inflammation thus getting you match ready
  • Allowing balance of the mind, body and spirit, Reiki will calm and clear the mind, helping you to relax, be worry free, feel less stress, anxiety and fear.
  • Boosts confidence and self-esteem, which will lead to enhanced performance and achieving your full potential

Reiki has the ideal potential to reduce the risk of injury, improve recovery time and enhance performance. Reiki will greatly develop the individual which in turn will ensure that their club will profit from increased performance which can only lead to continued success.
