For Hindus, the "chakras" ("wheels" in Sanskrit) are our energy centers. They are the basis of Ayurvedic medicine, five thousand years old. Ancient texts speak of 88,000 chakras distributed throughout the body. But they number seven major, located along a line that follows the path of the spine.
Each chakra is closely related to the endocrine system pathway that controls and regulates the entire organism.
Working on the chakras can awaken a circulation of energies that will have a beneficial effect physically, morally and spiritually.
