What are the energy centers or chakras?
To understand what they are “The chakras” or how they work in our body, it is first necessary to take into account that it’s all about energy . In Sanskrit, the word Chakra means “circle” and refers to invisible energy centers that are located in various parts of our body .
We are talking about a philosophy of wide acceptance and execution in the oriental culture, and it can be reflected in practices such as meditation, reiki or yoga. According to the Hindu tradition, the chakras are seven vortices of energy that symbolize the union between the body, the mind, the spirit and the soul.

The energy centers are distributed in our spine , specifically from the perineum to the area of the aura that is above the crown. They work as “valves” that regulate the flow of energy and, depending on their location, change their vibratory strength and speed, causing a physiological response as the final part of the process.

When we understand the existence of these elements in our inner being, we can apply them in conjunction with the various aspects of life, and of course health. The interconnection between the different chakras causes that, if one is blocked, the energy cannot go up to the next energy center of the wheel , so it produces different symptoms on a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual level.
An easy way to study energy centers is to identify them by their color. In ascending order, we will know the seven chakras and their location.
