A Chakra is a center of activity that receives, transmits,
and processes life force energy. The word Chakra literally
means "wheel" and refers to the spinning sphere
of energy located within the physical body. There are seven
Major chakra's that run along the spine from the coccyx to
the top of the head. There are also minor chakra's located
in the hands, feet, fingertips and shoulders and run along
meridians. Interestingly enough these often correspond to
what we call pressure points and points used in Shiatsu.
their location in the body, Chakra's have become associated
with various sates of conscious, elements, and psychological
health. Balancing your Chakra's works on a much deeper level
than the conscious mind and helps release unidentified issues
stored within those chakra's. Balancing your Chakra's will
often help rectify that sense of wrongness you may be feeling
by releasing negative emotions, thoughts, or expressing long
lost dreams that you may have long forgotten you even had.
As this is all done on an energy level, it is not necessary
to identify or discuss the specific issue but rather facilitate
its release from the chakra so that you can bring a sense
of peace and well being to your everyday life. These issues
are identified as energy imbalances and the release is achieved
by balancing the energy within the Chakra's. Although may
not be immediately felt, Chakra balancing has a long term
effect of releasing stress and anxiety and bringing balance
to your life.
