Chakra Alignment Therapy *
In chakra alignment therapy, there is the intention to balance the seven main chakras of the body which include the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third-eye, and crown chakras. These chakras hold our mental and emotional states, which are thrown off balance when we have physical pain or traumas. Setting these chakras back in balance improves the healing processes and the connection between the mind, body, and soul.
