Energy centre called Chakra, 'sanskrit’ english translation: Wheel - are similar to vortices. They are constantly spinning subtle energy, picking up superior (cosmic ) energy and transmuting it into a form to condition the human form for its use.
There are seven main chakras associated with the physical body. Each of those main chakras associates with a grand nerve plexus and endocrine glands. The seven chakras are located in a vertical line that runs up from the base of the spine to the head.
Thanks to developments in technology, today, scientists acknowledge the existence of the Chakras and Meridians in the human body.
From a physiological point of view, chakras seem to correlate with the flow of superior energy to cellular structure of the physical body through channels of subtle energy. They act as energy conductors. The energy is translated into hormonal changes, physiological and cellular in the entire body.
