Chakra Clearing and Balancing
Chakras are energy points within our subtle body. There are many Chakras that run throughout our body however, seven have been identified as the most importat and powerful. Chakras are spinning wheel like sources of energy and they relate to the rest of our body, organs and emotions. Chakras vitalize the physical body and are associated with physical, emotional and mental health. When one or more Chakras are out of balance (either overactive or underactive) or blocked completely, this results in physical, emotional and mental disturbances. Clearing and balancing the Chakras leads to increased balance and your body's overall receptivity to all other treatment modalities.
