The Energy Healing Site is a unique, free resource. It takes me (Nancy) many hours each week to sustain and expand it. If it is valuable to you, please consider supporting it with a donation.
There are seven major energy centers, plus many minor ones. (My own form of energy work, Restorative Touch, posits an eighth.) Each corresponds to specific glands, organs, and facets of your being.
Energy flows through the system in two ways. First, it flows up and down along the central channel, connecting each chakra. Second, it flows horizontally, in an exchange of energy with the cosmos.
Disturbances in a chakra's flow of the energy can result in disturbances in a person’s health, emotions, mind, spirit, or life.
Many forms of energy healing work with these energy centers. An energy healer can usually feel each of the vortexes and its relative strength.
