Chakra balancing massage is chakra energy work in combination with a variety of other bodywork techniques. 


The focus of the energy work is a light touch over the chakras while concentrating on intention. I find that energy work is best performed in silence to allow concentration on the subtle flow of energy. I listen with my hands as energy work is more about feeling what is occurring, as opposed to doing something to somebody.


Energy flows through the chakra system in two ways. First, it flows up and down along your central channel, base of spine to top of head, connecting the chakras. Second, it flows horizontally, in an exchange of energy with the cosmos. During the energy work I listen to the balance of the chakra system and to what degree:


  • energy flows freely vertically, reaching all the chakras: none of the chakras are blocked;

  • energy flows freely horizontally: each chakra exchanges energy freely with the cosmos;

  • none of the chakras is substantially more open or spinning faster/slower than the others: none is significantly overactive or underactive in comparison to the rest;

  • each of the chakras is opened to the degree needed to support your health and spiritual development: none of the seven chakras is open too wide, or closed down too tight;

  • neither the upper chakras nor the lower chakras is over-emphasised. 


Reiki healing energy is applied where needed before massage begins.


The massage is not necessarily deep; it is specific and slow. The intent is to massage a specific muscle in a slow, focused manner using either a lengthening stroke or a broadening stroke, particularly focussing on connective tissue with the intent to work with the chakra energy.
Additional techniques from tantric touch to enliven areas of our bodies and open our chakras can be applied as needed.


The combination of the techniques can be very powerful.
