All living materials are made of energy and matter. There are two types of energy; one measured by a traditional technology called Veritable Energy, such as the power in laser light and electromagnetics.
The second energy, cannot be measured by technology, called Putative Energy found in music, radiation, and energy medicine therapies.
In energy medicine, the body’s energy system known as chakras. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit Cakra (Hindu) meaning “wheel” or “circle” or the “Wheel of Life.” Chakras are the wheels of energy throughout the body. This unseen energy called prana, is our vital life force energy that keeps us vibrant, active, healthy, and physically and emotionally alive. All living creatures have chakras.
Energy healers work with the body’s putative energy. To balance chakras, each chakra is assessed for excessive, deficient or blockages. The primary goal of energy healers is to balance all chakras for vitality and positive energy flow.

Chakras are living energy centers that receive, assimilate and express life force energy. Every nerve and major organs in the body are connected to chakras. Our physical, emotional and spiritual health depend on how balanced our chakras are. Our energy is consistency moving and changing, either becoming excessive or deficient throughout the day depending what is happening. The ultimate goal is to keep chakras balanced and opened for positive energy flow.
How do chakras affect us? Chakras are continuously rotating and vibrating. The activities in the chakras influence our body shape, glandular processes, chronic physical ailments, thoughts, and behavior. When a chakra becomes blocked, the energy does not flow harmoniously, or if they are too opened, the flow of energy becomes too excessive. Both excessive and deficient will cause an energy imbalance.
Every chakra has corresponding organs in our physical system. When clients come with specific health issues, our Reflexologist and Chakra Balancing practitioners can tell almost immediately which chakras are affected.
