Traditional Indian medicine contends that the body is comprised of many centers, or chakras, through which energy flows in and out to keep us in optimal health. The seven different-colored chakras, each of which represents a different aspect of our being, fall along a line from the head to the base of the spine and work in synergy to maintain overall well-being.
Chakras are believed to be affected by life experiences, from daily stressors to trauma. Chakra imbalance can present itself through listlessness, depression and disease, but consistent treatment can be highly beneficial and effective in balancing energies and maintaining wellness.
Chakra balancing can include colors, crystals, gems, touch therapy, aromatherapy, light and sound. There are certain yoga positions that also correspond with each chakra, aiding in the balance and flow of energy.
Many proponents of chakra therapy claim to regain a desired state of being, thanks to the aligning and regulating of energy in these powerful centers. The effects can be felt physically, spiritually and emotionally.
