What is Chakra & Anatomy?

Chakra (cakra in Sanskrit) means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. They are thought to be spinning disks of energy that should stay “open” and aligned, as they correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of our energetic body that affect our emotional and physical well-being.

Chakras come from the earliest traditions of Hindu and Tantric Buddhist practice. The individual chakras throughout the body are focal points that blend the physical body with the spiritual mind. The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. You’ve probably heard people talk about “unblocking” their chakras, which refer to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit.

Studying Chakra & Anatomy in college

Courses will cover theory work through lectures, assignments, tutorials, and taught modules. Assessments will take place continuously with written examinations and practical assignments combined to achieve a qualification. You could also consider work experience or a work shadow in the industry. Some training providers want you to have shadowed a traditional healer for a certain amount of time, while others may expect you to have had treatment previously yourself.

You could also consider becoming a student member of a relevant professional. This will give you access to resources and help you to demonstrate a genuine interest in the field which is regarded favorably by employers. 

Work Experience will not only allow you to obtain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the industry, but it will also give you a chance to do some essential networking with other industry professionals and gain valuable contacts for the future.

Career options

After completing a course in Chakra & Anatomy you will be able to get started in a career that uses specific knowledge of Chakra and the energy points and systems of the body.

Alternative medicine practitioners can find careers in natural medicine clinics, hospitals, and wellness centers.

Additionally, natural pharmacies, research labs, corporate offices, and insurance companies do plenty of hiring. Alternative medicine schools also hire practitioners to work as instructors. Typically you will work towards being self-employed and working in private practice, which may mean working from home or, more often, in an established studio setting.

Working hours will depend on whether you are self-employed, employed by a company with set business hours, or if you are contracted to various facilities or companies. Your working hours will reflect your client’s needs and many practices open early in the morning, in the evening, and at weekends.

· Everything in this universe is composed of molecules that are vibrating at various frequencies. The molecules located within our bodies are constantly vibrating and radiating positive or negative, balanced or unbalanced, opened or closed frequencies. When our organs are misaligned energetically and radiating low-vibration frequencies, it can materialize into physical ailments, like pains, sickness, and disease. 

· Reiki is the Japanese tradition of energy healing, and it dates back to the early 20th century. The seven chakras, the energy transmission centers of the body, were first described in ancient Hindu texts.

· Like an automobile only runs on gasoline, the human body runs on only one kind of energy: chemical energy. More specifically, the body can use only one specific form of chemical energy, or fuel, to do biological work – adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
