The chakras, you don’t know how they work, where they are located? We take stock of the seven main chakras of the human body.
What does the word Chakra mean?
The word chakra comes to us from Sanskrit and means wheel or disc. But we can also compare its shape to a donut. The chakras are energy centers through which the vital energy passes, also called Chi (or Qi) in Chinese Feng Shui or Prana in India. The Earth’s magnetic field is a fine example of the flow of energy, which enters from below, crosses the disk vertically, exits at the top and descends laterally on the sides… then ascends from the bottom. In a human body, this is exactly how energy flows through each chakra.
The chakras, how do they work?
Transmitted by traditional Indian medicine more than 5,000 years ago, there are 88,000 chakras throughout the human body. But there are seven main chakras, located from the bottom to the top of the spine. The energy thus passes from one chakra to another and creates an energy field around the person. They feed and are fed by the energy of the body as a whole, on the principle of communicating vessels. A chakra testifies to our vitality and our openness to the experience of living things.

The chakras and the Ayurvedic method
As in traditional Chinese medicine, Indian medicine called Ayurveda conceives of the human body as a microcosm in which energy flows through the chakras. We also find in the body the five elements which interact: Water, Fire, Air, Earth, and Ether, which determine your Dosha. Health is the result of a balance between these elements and a smooth flow of energy. Conversely, an imbalance or poor circulation of energy will affect health. The whole art of accompanying consists of restoring the phenomenon of self-regulation of the body and energy, to allow the patient to regain his natural balance, to put the body on the road to recovery.

· Sleep problems: insomnia, nightmares …
· Mood disorders: irritability, depression, sadness …
· Pre- and post-cancer treatment support (chemotherapy, for example),
· Preparation for childbirth and support during pregnancy,
· Chronic pain (in addition to treatments): fibromyalgia, headaches, back pain …
· Mental preparation for exams,
· Sports preparation,
· Impression of being “lost in his life”.
Regarding contraindications, little to report: energy treatments are “only” prohibited for people with a pacemaker and people with severe psychiatric disorders.
