Haptotherapy and high-level sport performance

Haptotherapy is a well appreciated, but still not widespread, discipline in the field of cure and care for high-level athletes. Top-level athletes can and need to develop themselves as autonomous, self-confident and responsible persons in order to perform at their best without choking or burning out, also in the long term. Such an adequate personal development is not possible without emotional development. A major aspect in personal growth is a subtle sense of feeling and body awareness. In haptotherapy, athletes are confronted with their body and its emotional expressions.

Keywords: haptotherapy, personal development, emotional growth, touch, body awareness, physical and mental resilience
