As a Reflexologist and Chakra Balancing Practitioner, I am asked many questions about my work by people who come to me. They are always fascinated about the health benefits, and how these alternative therapies can be helpful.

Many people are new to the self-healing concept and don’t know which therapies to try. Alternative services like massage, acupuncture and chiropractic services have become mainstream and are accepted by the general population, yet many still don’t know much about the ancient healing modalities of Reflexology and Chakra Balancing.

If you are thinking of visiting a Reflexologist or Chakra Balancing practitioner, then let me explain what they can or cannot do regarding facilitating healing.

An energy specialist’s primary focus is to look at the root of the problem as well as looking at the physical discomforts. They will work with the body to balance all of the energy centers known as chakras so that every organ, gland, and tissue will function properly.

Reflexologists and Chakra Balancing Practitioners recognize that aches and pains are usually symptoms of energy imbalances. Once the pain source is located, an action plan is formulated to dissolve the pain by reinforcing the energy in all the organs, glands, and tissue to maximize their functions.

If you are thinking of working with a Reflexologist or Chakra Balancing Practitioner, it is helpful for the practitioner to understand what may be the causing your energy deficiency. Some of the following topics will be part of that discussion:

  • What are your stress factors?
  • What do you think are the roots of your health issues?
  • How does energy flow, and why does it become stagnant or blocked.
  • How to live life with mindfulness.
  • How to find time daily to connect with your soul and spirit through quiet or meditation.
  • Learn how to set boundaries by saying “no,” so that you don’t hurt yourself energetically.

Reflexologists and Chakra Balancing Practitioners can do many things, but they can’t “fix” you. However, they can teach you how to activate your natural ability to self-heal. They can’t diagnose illnesses or diseases, prescribe medications and supplements or change your lifestyle.

Keep in mind that not all holistic healers are equal, and each has their unique area of expertise. It is best to do some research, ask for referrals, and ask questions about which healing modality may be most helpful to you.

Most healers offer free consultations where you can have your questions or concerns answered. Interview healers the same way you would ask questions during a job interview.

Alternative healing like Reflexology and Chakra Balancing is a lifestyle approach and is not intended to serve as a one-time Band-Aid. It is an ongoing journey of self-discovery resulting in a better quality of life, while becoming healthier, and strengthening your mind, body and spirit.
