Chakras are concentrated energy centres in the body, each dedicated to the care of a specific aspect of ourselves. We have seven main Chakras which connect to an energy channel along the spinal cord, and many smaller Chakras over the body.
Each main Chakra connects to a specific Energy Body, allowing the non-physical parts of ourselves to influence our physical body and mind.

The energetic health of a person can be seen in the Chakras and Aura, and a Reiki Healer will find heavy or negative stuck energy and release it, opening the Chakras so energy can flow unobstructed.
For example, a person who struggles to voice their feelings and constantly feels unheard or misunderstood may have a block in the Throat Chakra. With Ashati and Reiki Energy Healing we can work on releasing this energy, which could have been stagnant due to experiences as an adult or as far back as childhood events.
The name "Chakra" comes from the ancient Sanskrit language and means "spinning disk". The Chakra System has been known for thousands of years and is widely accepted, and we now have accurate scientific measurements of the energetic field our hearts create.
