What are Chakras?                        

Chakras are energy centers in the body that can be measured. There are many of them that correspond to each organ, joint, system etc but the ones that are most commonly talked about are the " Seven Chakras" These are located from the bottom or "root" of our spine to the top or "crown" of the head. There are even more above your head in and around your aura but we will focus on the main seven here. 

During a Reiki or Massage session your Chakras are tested and an effort to rebalance them is made. If your higher self is willing to participate, you may feel an overall feeling of wellbeing after this is performed. Making good life/food/environmental choices will optimize the effects of Reiki, Chakra balancing and massage or any other holistic session but you must be willing to be responsible for the health of your being. If you think of your session as a partnership, rather than a quick fix, you may find that you get more out of it. If some of the issues you have been dealing with, have been with you for a while, then it may take a few sessions to balance your system. Raz is enthusiastically willing to team up with and guide you during this process. 

Refer to the brief (but not limited to) descriptons below. If one or more of your Chakras are out of balance some of the areas in your life that correlate with that Chakra may also be out of balance. With all of the science and studies on the area of stress turning into physcial issues, this is a great time to tune into your self, respect and give your self love on a regular basis and nurture the physcial aspects, as well as, the energy of your body.
