Diseases and Associated Chakras

Article by Rinku Patel

Here is an article especially written for new Reiki practitioners.

At one point in our Reiki practice, many of us were in a dilemma about which chakra to heal for certain disease/problem. When I was a newbie in Reiki, I always wondered about which chakra was to be healed for particular problem/disease. I used to browse through the internet for long hours to satisfy my queries. Many new reiki practitioners go through this same confusion.

We read about chakras, their colors, crystal healing etc, yet for new practitioners it’s quite confusing as to which chakra is associated with which disease.

Recently I have gotten queries about which chakras are to be healed for certain problems.

Hence I thought of making this list with a few common problems/diseases and chakras associated with them, especially for new Reiki practitioners. I am not writing about chakras and their functions.


Below is just a list of diseases/problems and associated chakras.

      Sameer: what I understand about skin problems goes back to being low on Vitamin D 3. As an adult the right amount to consume s/b 5,000 to 6,000 units.

      Hope it will help

    Great Articule, thanx.

    To know and understand all these theoretical information, i believe is extremely important for reiki practitioners (as my self) to work on our intuition and build a personal experience with each one of them.
