Albert Einstein told us back in the 1920’s that everything (including our bodies) is composed of energy. We all have energy within our bodies that can be used, or abused, in different ways, and the energy created from our emotions and mental attitudes are said to run through our body’s cells, tissues and organs. One belief is that our energy is channeled through chakras in the body.
Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning circle or wheel, and is the word used to describe the points from the base of the spine to the top of the head into one holistic system. Theories on chakras link the human body and mind into a body-mind relationship and through chakras we receive, transmit and process life energies. Thus, balancing the chakras will balance energy in the body that can be major contributors to physical pain and diseases. Chakra reflexology does exactly this – balancing chakras through unblocking the corresponding reflex points and therefore using the emotional to heal the physical.
Chakra reflexology is an interesting and powerful practice. Whether you believe in chakras and energy or not, it is a deeply relaxing and meditative treatment. It works on the particular reflex points that correspond with the endocrine system, thus helping with relaxation, anxiety and stress. It also uses new freedom and energy breathing techniques that give any recipient a deep feeling of relaxation.
