There are seven major chakras (that are most commonly known) located in the body. These are housed in a vertical line inside a channel that runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. The importance of this energy channel to us is very profound. The interaction that occurs between the energy that flows through us, and each one of the chakras, is quite intricate. For the moment, just understand that if any one of the chakra points is blocked or perhaps, let’s just say ‘out of kilter’, the body becomes susceptible to physical and mental imbalances.
