Chakras are the connection between the spiritual and the physical aspect of our being. The endocrine glands are linked to 7 of the main chakras. In the Indian healing system, when physical dysfunction occurs, one or more chakras are considered blocked, dysfunctional or unbalanced. Unbalanced chakras are reflected in a whole range of mental, emotional and physiological dysfunctions. Chakra balancing is used to correct the chakra so that the endocrine gland and all related structures and organs start functioning properly. Historically, chakra balancing is done in a number of ways, but it is most effective to consider the procedure to be performed by someone who has the ability to feel or see (or both) the chakras and their state of imbalance. Then use healing energy techniques to balance them.
