Throughout our body we have main energy centres, which are connected to major organs and glands that govern other body parts.
Each of these main energy centres are referred to as chakra. Chakra is a Sanskrit word which means wheel. A chakra can be visualised as a wheel-like spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion. They are considered the centre of our subtle energy or life force or prana, also known as Qi in Chinese medicine.
