"Coming from Japanese, “Rei” is translated as “Universal or Divine Wisdom” and “Ki” means “energy”. Together, these words define a system of energy medicine that shifts the body from the fight-or-flight mode to a restorative mode (the parasympathetic nervous system) that encourages relaxation and healing."
Reiki for Life: The Complete Guide to Reiki Practice
At Fair Winds Reiki, each session is conducted by a Reiki Master Teacher. The client reclines, fully clothed, on a zero-gravity chair. Reiki is administered through hand positions held a short distance from the body. The client's only responsibility is to relax and be open to the experience.
Reiki can be beneficial for physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Not only does it promote healing in the physical body by shifting it into a restorative state, Reiki can also assist recipients in healing emotionally and expanding spiritually.
