The Seven Chakras

and Benefits of Chakra Balancing

Chakra balancing can be defined as a process aiming at influencing how energy moves through the human body. The goal of balancing the Chakras is to restore the optimal balance between the energy centers thus promoting well-being. Chakras are energy centers of our bodies located approximately 2” outside the body and they run from the Root Chakra (located below the tailbone) to the Crown Chakra (above the head).

The Sanskrit word “Chakra” means wheels or discs. I like to describe the Chakras as mini cyclones. If we could see them, they would look like wheels spinning or turning and each connected to the other. These energy centers may become blocked which can lead to illness and disease. It is extremely important to understand what each Chakra is and what we can do to keep the energy balanced to its highest potential.
