What is a Chakra?

What is a chakra?

Ancient yogic traditions teach that there are seven chakras or energy centers in our body. Each of these chakras has a vibrational frequency in the universe which influences our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When they become blocked, we can experience illness including poor mental and spiritual health. When our chakras are aligned with the universal flow of energy, every aspect of our life becomes harmonious and joyful. We reclaim our health and our appreciation and passion for life is renewed.

Why do you need to balance your chakras?

Try thinking about your chakras as you would your car.  You need to keep the engine tuned, replace fluids, and align and balance the wheels. The same is true for our chakras.  When one (or more) is out of alignment or blocked, it can throw you off emotionally, spiritually and physically; and as the other energy centers take on more, they become less efficient. When your chakras are in sync and working together as a whole, you have a healthy flow of energy and you feel more confident, stable and physically robust.

How do you align chakras that are out of balance?

There are a number of ways to unblock and balance your chakras. Aromatherapy, meditation, affirmations, color therapy and energy work can all have an impact; used alone or together.  In the Elixir Chakra Massage all of these techniques are used in a single 60 minute session for the third eye, heart and sacral chakra.
