In humans the major Chakras are in a vertical line down centre of body, and in animals a more triangular placement. Different traditions describe different numbers of Chakras – some 7, some 8 and even some 12. The ones we deal with in Reiki are the 7 main and the minor ones in hands and feet.

Chakras are energy centres for physical rejuvenation, they are data recording centres. They are the bridge between physical and non-physical, located in etheric body – one layer away from physical body. Each Chakra regulates the organs and systems in the area of the body it is near.
