How Chakra Balancing Massage Helps You...
According to eastern mysticism, there are 7 main whirling energy centers in the human body. These are called chakras, Sanskrit for 'wheels'. Chakras play a critical role in the wellbeing of our energy bodies. They influence us psychologically and physiologically as well. Each one of these major chakras is associated with an endocrine gland and also with one of the Plexuses.
This way, by influencing the endocrine glands and the plexuses in a region of your body, each chakra governs that particular area of your body.
Ideally, every chakra would be open and active, and we would be feeling great both emotionally and physically. But this is rarely so. In most of us, not all chakras are open. Some chakras are inactive and closed, making other chakras over active to compensate. This leads to less than ideal emotional and physical states.
How do know whether your chakras are out of balance? The best way is to gauge your mood and feelings. Are you feeling calm, peaceful and joyous filled with hope and enthusiasm? Or are you feeling bored, tired, anxious or even depressed? If your chakras are balanced, energy flows smoothly in your energy body and you experience feelings of wellbeing. If your chakras are blocked and closed, you will feel out of sync. It's as simple as that.
Stress, improper breathing and unhealthy lifestyle are the main reasons why chakras get blocked. And in the fast paced dog-eat-dog world we live in, stress is inevitable.
Blocked chakras will not be able effectively influence our endocrine glands. As a result, out physical and emotional health is affected.
For perfect mental and physical wellbeing, it is essential that all of these are open and balanced.
What is Chakra Balancing: How We Cleanse and Balance Your Chakras?
Chakra balancing is the process of fully opening up partially or fully closed chakras, making them active once again. Once all of the chakras are opened, energy flows smoothly from the crown chakra (in the head) to our root chakra (near the anal sphincter) and up again, leading to a feeling of wellbeing, calm and peace. In this state, you will be able to easily handle all the world throws at you with calm and poise, without losing your balance.
