Why can Reiki be empowering in sport?

For many people the first thing which comes into mind when they hear the word reiki is: “relaxation”.

If they already came along it at all…. 😉

MAKKO-HO for your meridians

 Ying yang, Makko-Ho, Lanzarote, Shiatsu, Reiki, innerer Frieden, Gesundheit

Makko-Ho are part of Shiatsu technique, not a traditional Reiki technique. 🙂

A wonderful complementary at any moment of life, you can perform them anywhere and at any time to promote physical, emotional, mental and generally energetical fitness.

Practise just one of them, if you like to support a specific meridian; though, the benefits of performing a routine of all of them together are unlimited: more flexibility and strenghts for joints, tendons and muscles, a quieter state of mind (it is very meditativ) and a generally better sensation of calmness and wellbeing.

All you need is a quiet place, a not to hard base/floor to sit (specially for no. 2), may be a yoga or gym mat, comfortable clothes and about 10 minutes – nothing else.

Enjoy!
