Chakra Balancing Massage

"Do you want something that goes deeper…that awakens your chakras, clears blockages in your energy flow and helps you experience and express your luminous spirit?"🙏🏾
Intuitively and intentionally energetic purging to relieve tension and clear energy blockage from the body
Miralva posses an intrinsic gift to draw away and release negative energy through her hands. Unresolved emotions or traumatic memories may also released along with physical stress, leading to a state of relaxation and well-being.
Chakra balancing massage based on the belief that the body has seven main energy centers along the spine which absorb and emit life force. These energy centers are referred to as chakras.
Ayurvedic tradition identify seven main chakras, which are junctions between consciousness (mind) and matter (body) and which link the various aspects of what makes us human: our physical, energetic, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual selves. When we focus on the chakras, we can connect to these aspects and move toward balance, health, and well-being.
A good way to understand chakras is to equate each one to a life energy within the human body. Each of your chakras governs a specific function within your body, along with specific emotional issues associated with it. Take for example the heart chakra (Anahata) if a blockage occurs on the heart chakra you may feel feelings of shyness and loneliness. Feeling stuck in the past, and pining away for an old (and very over) relationship can be a sign of a blocked heart chakra. Throat Chakra the 5th chakra (Vishuddha) which means purification, which affect our creativity and self expression. If a blockage occurs in the Vishuddha chakra, due to stress, other emotional issues or poor diet, the chakra can become blocked and it can cause gas, indigestion, constipation and all sorts of uncomfortable digestive issues.
Feeling of wellbeing.
Massage treatments have a lot of physical, mental and emotional benefits:
By relaxing you give your body & mind a break of stress allowing your nerve system to relax and give you great sense of wellbeing. It is because of the effect on the endocrine system. Yes, hormones. And this works very much together with the nervous system and affects the whole body.
When research is conducted to determine the clinical effects of hands-on treatment, there should be a control group to help account for the healing effects observed by simply touching another human being. This is because it helps release hormones such as endorphins and oxytocin.
Do You know that another name for endorphin is “natural morphine”? That’s because it helps reduce pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals. In addition, endorphins can give a sense of euphoria/pleasure.
Oxytocin also called the “love hormone”. It is associated with many things, and seems to still be researched to fully understand it’s effect.

Shamanic Yoga Dance Flow
By creating sacred space using shamanic techniques to clear the physical space of low vibrational energy and encircling the space with protective loving energy, we can move, meditate and transcend the body, mind and spirit to be connected and whole within ourselves and the Great Spirit. Combining shamanic practices with yoga, dance flow philosophy, creates a unique atmosphere during each practice to honor and connect to the seen and unseen worlds. Once the sacred space is sanctified, the healing experience of moving the body through a combination of dance and physical postures (asanas) and decreasing the mind chatter( Monck mind) Shamanic Yoga dance flow infuses the healing qualities and transcendental elements from both modalities to transform the practitioner into their deepest desires.
The fundamental structures of shamanism, yoga and dance flow unite both techniques as a means to create structure and guidance as the journey unfolds beautifully for each practitioner.
