In the simplest meaning, chakras are the subtle but powerful energy centres inside the human body. The word “chakras” is actually derived from an Indian word which means wheel or a circle. However, the word chakras is of Sanskrit origin and has been used in almost all the traditional ways of healing as practiced in the east. The concept of chakras has been used for over hundred years. The chakra’s role in treating illness and disorders has been monumental.
In Reiki, there are seven chakras or energy centers seated inside a person. These chakras are situated in the different points in the body. Each chakra work with a group of vital organs. Together, they ensure wellness of a person at all levels. However, these chakras may be prone to deficiencies and imbalances. This is where Reiki can help.
