The Pelvis, the largest bone in the body, is the foundation of our structure. This bone is held static by muscles. When one of these muscles becomes weak for any reason, injury, poor sitting or lifting habits, the weight of pregnancy the hips will tip. When this happens the red chakra becomes obstructed and the body is not able to receive this basic life force energy from the Earth, so one becomes ungrounded.
The hips are the axis of the body. they can rotate posterior (back), it causes one leg to look shorter. When rotated anterior (forward), it will cause one leg to look longer, giving the appearance of the legs being a different length. When the pelvis rocks out of balance it can also involve the sciatic nerve.
The pelvis requires 80% to retain balance. This area is the most difficult structural part of the body to maintain. The most common involvement is when the pelvis rotates back on the right. This imbalance will also cause the spine to become out of alignment if not corrected.
This rotation of the pelvis twists the large intestine, causing waste removal to become impeded. The kidneys, small intestine, bladder, gall bladder, stomach, spleen/pancreas, circulation-sex and thyroid systems will also be affected. When the pelvis has rotated out of position, then energy of the red chakra is diminished.
This balancing technique is one of the most profound adjustments that can be done to the human body and will help strengthen 90% of the organs.
The hip bones correspond with the mastoids, these are the large bumps behind the ears. If the hips are out of position the mastoids will rock the same way.
When the hips go out of place this will encourage the other bones especially the bones of the leg and the spine to go out of alignment.
If there are any vertebra misaligned then correct the vertebra first before adjusting the hips because with vertebra out the spine cannot lay flat and the hip adjustment will not be as effective.
The muscles that hold the pelvis in place are the Psoas muscles.
