Getting Back Into Balance

More and more research about health and wellbeing is demonstrating that good health relies upon balance within the body as well as the mind. Not so long ago the Western medical profession tended to dismiss the idea of a mind-body connection, but today more physicians and other health professionals are beginning to take note. Even if the only professional endorsement comes from the need to reduce stress, it’s still an important note to make. Stress plays a big role in wellness, and a fantastic way to help manage stress is to adopt a wellness routine that includes massage therapy.

Here at Five Senses, we offer a range of massage services, but one that you may not have considered is our Chakra Balancing Massage. Chakras have their origins in ancient Eastern spiritual traditions, and there are seven primary chakras that represent the most fundamental building blocks of human life. It’s designed to function as a system with each individual chakra corresponding to a physical area of the body and its matching emotional component. The word itself comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel, which speaks to the function of each chakra to act like a wheel of spinning energy within the body.

Our chakras work best when they’re in balance, but our health, our habits, and the stress of daily life can affect that equilibrium. The reverse is also true – our chakras, and whether or not they are in balance, can affect our health and emotional state. And because the entire network functions as a system, even if just one chakra is out of balance, the entire system suffers. That’s where the Chakra Balancing Massage comes into play with a combination of deep tissue massage, foot reflexology and energy work all complimented by Aveda’s Chakra Balancing Blends.
