  • Gemstone energy

There is a Chakra movement upon us. Lately, it is seen in various forms such as yoga, and yoga athleticwear. It has also been seen in formats through sound bowl therapy, aromatherapy, Reiki and even healing gemstone methods. The critical importance of mental health and overall self care is being brought to the forefront…..thus, emerging is our Inner Beauty; over Outer Beauty. Its what’s behind the mask and inside the individual that makes beauty stand out. Confidence is key and Chakras can build on that. Try it and see the evolution within.
