Svadhisthana is the Sanskrit name for the sacral chakra. It’s a fusion of two Sanskrit words- Sva (Self) + Adhisthana (Seat/ where it’s seated), meaning where your inner self rests/ is seated. 

In the world of chakra metaphysics, Svadhisthana translates to the seat of your truest self.

What’s The Sacral Chakra Location?

The short answer is its location is four inches from the navel area around your pelvic region. Hence, it’s also called the navel chakra. 

Most psychics and healers say the exact location of the Svadhisthana is at the perineum. Alternatively, this may be at the center of the back and the stomach. Although, it’s more precisely at the same level at ovaries for women and testes for men.

At What Age Does This Chakra Develop?

The second chakra point develops between the ages of 14 and 18. It’s when puberty or sexual maturity occurs, and that’s why the development of sacral chakra differs from person to person.

The best frequency to awaken this chakra healing in your body is the frequency of 480 Hz. If you combine yogasanas with it, you’ll feel relaxed more relaxed.
