Chakra Healing & Balancing
Chakra balancing is a form of energy healing that channels energy into the 7 chakras of the body.
Each Chakra relates to a certain part of the body. When a chakra is blocked you may feel ‘off’. This could be a physical symptom such as a sore throat , tired or backache or it could be emotional, mindful or even spiritual.
The Chakras are healed or balanced with Reiki, Meditation, Essential oils, Crystals and even colours .
