Aromatherapy for the Chakras
A one-day introduction to the seven Chakras, the Sanskrit name for energy-circles in the body. In Hinduism and in some related Asian cultures, a chakra (Sanskrit cakra चक्र “wheel”) is thought to be a nexus of metaphysical and/or biophysical energy residing in the human body. The New Age movement, and to some degree the distinctly different New Thought movement, have also adopted and elaborated on this belief. There will be an overview of these Chakras, their meanings, colours, shapes and their position in the body.
The concept of meridians (Chinese: jing-luo 经络) arises from the techniques and doctrines of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), including acupressure. According to these practices, the body’s vital energy, “qi”, circulates through the body along specific interconnected channels called meridians. There is no physically verifiable anatomical or histological basis for their existence. The Meridians will be explained more fully and practically explored.
Colour therapy will be applied to the meridian and chakra information already taught to give complete balance and harmony in treatment.
Most of the course will be very practical; using movement, sound, scent, crystals and meditation and will also include a full demonstration and practice of Chakra-balancing.
A useful addition to Indian Head Massage and other energy therapies.
