What are the Chakras

Chakra Balancing is a form of energy healing by channeling energy from the universe into the seven chakras. When treating chakras, we are referring to your energetic body. The body is not only made up of the physical body, we have an energy that extends beyond our physical wellbeing.

The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. When people talk about "unblocking" their chakras, it is so energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit.
