What is Energy Healing?
Energy healing is a form of hands on healing found in all ancient cultures throughout the world. It is a non-invasive gentle, holistic therapy that encompasses the whole body, mind, and spirit. Energy healing taps into the universal life force energy that flows through every living thing in the universe which is known as Prana (India), Chi (China) and Mana (Polynesia). an Ki (Japan).
Reiki which is now a popular form of energetic healing originated in Japan. Since everything is made up of energy, all types of healing ultimately involve using this life force energy. The goal of Energy Healing is to restore harmony, energy and balance within the human energy system through usually via the hands either touching or being placed above the body. The energy flows from the palm chakra’s to the client’s body or energy field that surrounds the body. There are many different types of Energy Healing and these include, but are not limited to, Reiki, Spiritual Healing, Shamanism, and Faith Healing.
What are Chakra’s?
The chakra system is based on a yogic chakra system that recognises seven distinct “wheels” or “centers” of energy that are perpetually in motion along the human body’s spinal column. Each possessing its own colour and vibrational frequency, these wheels are constantly rotating and vibrating. Chakra health is influenced by physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
Chakra’s can become imbalanced either through too little or too much flow. Sometimes one (or more) of the chakra is blocked the energy does not flow harmoniously through them, or it may wide open, or out of balance in relation to each other or the universal flow. This can result in imbalance that manifests either physically, mentally or emotionally to the area influenced by the chakra.
We have 7 major Chakra’s located around the spine and more located around our joints. Their names, locations and corresponding chakra colours are:
Root chakra: Mulundara— tailbone /perineum — red
Sacral chakra: Svadhishthana — base of spine— orange
Solar Plexis chakra: Manipura — just below the navel— yellow
Heart chakra: Anahata — center of the chest — green
Throat chakra: Ajna — base of the throat — blue
Third Eye chakra: Vishudi— forehead, between the eyes — indigo
Crown chakra: Sahasrara- top of the head — violet
What Is Chakra Balancing?
A chakra blockage and imbalance in one or several of 7 chakras can initiate mental, emotional, physical and/or spiritual ailments. Practitioners often use vibrational frequencies to restore balance such as, crystals, palm healing, sound, essences, or another form of vibrational medicine. Practitioners are knowledgeable about chakra systems, their function, and the areas they govern. Balancing chakras and healing with the chakra energy system requires a working knowledge of chakras and their functions. A Chakra balance and healing treatment will assist with physical mental and emotional imbalances.

Thanks to new technologies such as CT scans, MRI’s, ultrasound and LCD thermal photography, scientists have been able to map meridians now called the Primo Vascular System which is believed to be the physical component of the meridian system. There is a clear mapping system using dye to distinguish between the non-acupuncture point and acupuncture point anatomical structures with 80% correspondence with acupuncture sites.
