The seven main chakras are the most commonly accepted energy centers in all spiritual cultures that recognize the movement of energy through the human body.
The chakras are gates to divine power and important tools for spiritual transformation, and as such, they have captivated and fascinated people for thousands of years.
In ancient times, people did not have the extensive anatomical knowledge that we now have. Many old civilizations intuitively formulated their theories about things they could not see or comprehend.
It is fascinating to see how the locations of 7 chakra points correlate with the position of endocrine glands that we know today in the physical body.
In this article, you are going to learn the exact location of all chakra points in your physical body, associated organs, glands, and nerve plexuses.
You might find it very useful for all of your chakra meditations.
So, how does the chakra work?
Each chakra controls and supports your well-being by directing a distinct physical, psychological, and spiritual energy in the body.
Ancient Indian mystics who were able to perceive energies described chakras as fast-spinning wheels of light, rotating clockwise or counterclockwise.
Each chakra governs a particular location of your physical body and a large number of emotional, mental, and psychic abilities.
How To Find Chakra Location Points?
While we cannot prove this by X-ray machines and many other widely recognized devices, each chakra has a physical location within or above your body.
We normally assume that a chakra's physical processes are connected to a specific body part due to its physical proximity to it.
However, it is more appropriate to suggest that a chakra regulates a certain part of the body since their vibrational frequencies correlate.
What Are The 7 Chakra Points?
These are the chakra locations in the body:
- Root Chakra: Base of the Spine
- Sacral Chakra: Sacrum
- Solar Plexus Chakra: Solar Plexus
- Heart Chakra: Middle of the Chest
- Throat Chakra: Throat
- Third Eye Chakra: Middle of the Forehead
- Crown Chakra: Top of the Head
It is important to remember that chakras, just like all energies, resemble energetic fields and they can affect an entire body area.
As a result, all chakra positions are not precisely linked to exact physical chakra points. However, their core (epicenter) can be identified with a certain accuracy in the physical body when they are perfectly aligned.

Chakra Points Map
It appears that our endocrine system closely matches the subtle energy system. In fact, it is almost an exact match if you overlay the chakra points map on top of your endocrine system!
Now, let's have a look at the location points for each of your chakras in more detail:
Root Chakra Location Point
- Location: Base of the Spine
- Associated Organs: Reproductive Organs
- Associated Glands: Testies in men; Ovaries in women
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Coccygeal Plexus
In the physical body, the first chakra can be found at the base of the spine, in the region called the perineum. Root chakra location corresponds to the spine segment known as the coccyx.
The root chakra is mainly responsible for our sense of survival in the physical world. Survival instinct and our desire to procreate can be linked to the reproductive organs in the body (testes and ovaries).
The root chakra houses the dormant energy of kundalini, the shakti force of transformation and change. The first chakra is also associated with the ida, pingala, and sushumna — the three most important energy channels flowing around the core of your spine.
Sacral Chakra Location Point
- Location: Sacrum
- Associated Organs: Kidneys, Bladder, Bowel, Spleen
- Associated Glands: Adrenal glands
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Sacral Plexus
The second chakra epicenter is situated in the lower belly between the navel and the reproductive organs, but it covers the whole area of the body between these two points.
It is directly connected to the upper boundary of the sacrum, which is the triangular bone in the spinal column nestled between the two hip bones.
The sacral chakra is your primary emotional center, and it regulates your ability to express yourself creatively and interact with others. Glands associated with sacral chakra are adrenal glands.
Many essential hormones are released by the adrenal glands, which help you to control your stress level, metabolism, immune system, blood pressure, and many other functions. As a result, you can feel emotionally balanced.
Solar Plexus Chakra Location Point
- Location: Solar Plexus
- Associated Organs: Stomach, Liver, Intestines
- Associated Glands: Pancreas
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Solar Plexus
The solar plexus chakra is located in the solar plexus area, within a 3 inch (7cm) radius from the navel. During stressful times, this nerve plexus may sometimes feel like a tight knot felt right below the sternum.
The center of the solar plexus chakra can be found around 2 inches above the navel, just below the sternum. The third chakra is associated with the stomach, spleen, liver, and pancreas.
The main gland of the solar plexus chakra is the pancreas, which helps you to digest the food and controls your blood sugar levels by producing insulin.
Heart Chakra Location Point
- Location: Chest
- Associated Organs: Heart, Lungs and Hands
- Associated Glands: Thymus
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Pulmonary and Cardiac Plexus
The heart chakra is located in the middle of the chest, in the heart region. The fourth chakra is linked with the cardiac plexus and it is associated with the heart, lungs, hands, and thymus.
The thymus gland, which contains the glandular tissue and produces few hormones, is more closely associated with the immune system than the endocrine system.
It plays a significant role in T-cell development, which protects us from lethal viruses. The thymus develops in infancy but decreases gradually through adulthood.
Throat Chakra Location Point
- Location: Throat
- Associated Organs: Vocal Cords, Mouth, Esophagus
- Associated Glands: Thymus
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Pharyngeal Plexus
The throat chakra is the 5th center of energy from the base on the spine, located in the cervical vertebrae area and it extends from the shoulders to the medulla oblongata (part of the brainstem).
The vishudda chakra central point is positioned at the base of the throat and is connected with the carotid plexus. Throat chakra's kshetram (activation spot) lies is in the middle of the throat.
The throat chakra is associated with the thyroid gland which plays an important role in the formation and growth of the human body. The thyroid releases hormones that control the body's metabolism, sustain the right rate of heart, and promote brain growth and bone support.
Third Eye Chakra Location Point
- Location: Middle of the Forehead
- Associated Organs: Eyes, Brain
- Associated Glands: Pineal gland
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Cartoid Plexus
The third eye chakra is the 6th energy center from the bottom, located in the middle of your head, at the very top of the spinal column, between the eyebrows.
The third eye chakra is connected to the third eye, an etheric organ of psychic vision that exists between your physical eyes. The third eye sees beyond the physical realm, providing you with the gifts of deeper insight and clairvoyance.
Traditionally, the pineal gland was considered the third eye, with many ancient beliefs indicating its use as a bridge between physical and metaphysical dimensions.
Physically, the pineal gland plays an important part in controlling the daily rhythm of the body (circadian rhythm) through the secretion of the melatonin hormone.
Crown Chakra Location Point
- Location: Top of the Head
- Associated Organs: Brain Stem & Spinal Cord
- Associated Glands: Pituitary gland
- Spinal Nerve Plexus: Cerebral Cortex
Certain texts place the crown chakra at the top of the head, while others slightly above it. The seventh chakra is often identified as being connected to the cerebral plexus in the cerebral cavity. It is the place where the supreme bindu (the seed of the Universe) is located.
Crown chakra is sometimes referred to as "king chakra" or "master chakra", and it is associated with the pituitary gland, also known as the "master gland" of the endocrine system.
The pituitary gland is called the "master gland," since it produces the hormones that regulate other aspects of the endocrine system, including the thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, and reproductive glands.
