What are the Chakras?several of the chakra rollers in a circle with a white marble background

In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, the term chakra refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.

There are seven main chakras that align along the spine, starting from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.

Chakras store the energy of thoughts, feelings, memories, experiences, and actions.

Chakra healing refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the body, mind, and spirit, creating a sense of overall well-being.

Let’s dig in.

The Root Chakra is very connected to feelings of safety and security, self-confidence, and knowing that we are enough. It also supports feelings of trust and belonging.

Really works! I used to be very skeptical, but trust me when I say that I really believe in the power of chakras and this roller TRULY has helped me in unblocking and opening my root chakra. I love the scent as well! - Tania
