WHAT ARE CHAKRAS?
Chakra is the Sanskrit word meaning "Wheel". Chakra's are believed to be our emotional, mental and spiritual energy centres, and there are 7 of these subtle energy centres within the body.
The Chakra System is a very ancient mystical system which originated in the East, and plays an important part in the teachings of Yoga.
Chakra's are non-physical, but interact with the physical body by having a connection with the endocrine and nervous systems, and are located mostly along the spinal column, corresponding to certain nerve ganglia.

It is believed that when our Chakras (or energy centres) become blocked (commonly by stress), the energy within our bodies can not flow properly, and we can become unwell. By using crystals, Crystal Therapists can help to unblock any "blockages" that occur within our bodies, so that the vital energy, or Kundalini, can flow freely once again, and promote balance and well-being.
