Chakras are the connection between the spiritual aspect and the physical aspect within the physical dimension.There is an endocrine gland associated with the main 7 chakras.In the ancient Vedic system of healing when a physical and emotional dysfunction is in place, one or more chakras are considered to be blocked , dysfunctional and unbalanced.
Chakra Balancing is used to balance the chakra,so that the endocrine gland and all the associated structure and organs affected by that gland balance and begin to function correctly. Historically,chakra balancing has been done in a number of ways but t has been most effectively done by someone who has the capability to either feel or see (or both) the chakras and their state of unbalance .Then they use energy healing techniques to adjust and balance them.
Sounds and Vibrations from frequency toned Singing Bowls naturally cause chakras associated with its glands and organs to self correct .The sound waves run correcting frequencies to the unbalanced chakras,bringing them back to normal functioning .The overall balancing affect of the Singing Bowls and brain wave entrainment combine to enhance and support chakras which in turn enhance cellular and systematic healing throughout the body. The healing transformations includes the appropriately pitch tones for all 7 chakras and the glands and organs related with it and helps in optimal balancing.
