For centuries chakra treatments have been a holistic go-to when it comes to harmonizing the body’s energy centers for a more relaxed and refreshed state of well-being. While the focus of these treatments remains true to its ancient origins, many spas have added modern day versions that incorporate even more wellness benefits.

A Balancing Act:
Chakra treatments are all about balance. There are seven primary chakras, or energy points, in your body that run a straight line from your skull to the base of your spine. It’s believed that these energy centers can be disrupted and thrown off balance, resulting in a multitude of problems including stress, anxiety and tension. Using a holistic approach, these energy centers can be rebalanced, thereby healing the body both physically and psychologically for a total transformative experience.

How Chakra Treatments Work:
Chakra treatments harness the energy from other sources—stones, colors or other elements—and use it to heal and restore balance to your body’s chakras. Sushant Pandey, yoga director at Ananda in the Himalayas, explains, “Different modalities of chakra treatments work to unblock and harmonize the chakras. Meditative techniques help align the energies of the seven major chakras through psychic breath work and mantras. Treatments such as Reiki or crystals work by channeling energies from medium (therapist/healer) to receiver.”

What You Can Expect:
Regardless of which type of chakra treatment you get, the overall benefit—the way you’ll feel afterward—is the same. So what can you expect once your energy centers are balanced? “You’ll feel an increased level of relaxation and vitality as a result of unblocking of energies, as well as heightened mental clarity and a sense of grounding on a mental level,” Pandey says.
