When we are able to find true pleasure in all aspects of life, that is a good sign there is harmony and balance in the chakra systems and our energetic system/ spiritually which in turn manifests in our physical, emotional, and mental bodies. So yes, I do agree that pleasure is pathway to healing. Our 2nd Chakra the Sacral Plexus Chakra which is associated with our reproductive /sexual organs (among others) helps us to explore areas in life that we may find pleasure and joy sexually and non-sexually. It is also connected to our inner-child-like selves where we lack shame, find joy, and create. We can find pleasure in life in many ways and exploring this will help to clear the foundation and first layers of our energetic systems (Root Chakra and Sacral Chakra) which is optimal for healing the entire system and the 4 bodies.
