There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra is located throughout our body which correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths.
The maintenance of the health of your chakras contributes to your overall physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. If there are overactive or under-active chakras (energy is not flowing harmoniously through them) then this can result in illness. When things in your life are out of whack, your chakras express this imbalance energetically.
