Origins, benefits and methodology

Many medicinal systems base their ability to treat disorders using the power of positive energy. Without evidence-based proof, these alternative forms of treatment do provide results. Similar to yoga and acupuncture, Pranic Healing focuses on the “energy body,” which in turn affects the “physical body.”

What is Pranic Healing? Where did it originate?
Pranic Healing is an energy healing technique that involves the use of ‘prana’ (life force, energy) to correct imbalances in the human body by manipulation of the energy field. Pranic Healing was developed by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui. He founded the Institute for Inner Studies, Inc. in Manila and “Pranic Healing” is a registered trademark of the institute.

In Sanskrit, “prana” means life force. This vital energy surrounding the human body is invisible, yet it keeps the body alive and healthy.

How is it beneficial?
Pranic Healing is recommended for those people who have lost their vigor and will for life.

  • It provides peace of mind and calmness for people whose busy schedules leave them feeling stressed and lifeless.
  • It ensures overall mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Studies or research on efficacy
As of now, there are no published scientific studies on the efficacy and safety of Pranic Healing in recognized journals. However, there appeared a mention of Pranic Healing in the magazine Skeptical Inquirer, written by Jack Ruso in 1995.

How is Pranic Healing done?
Pranic Healing does not require the practitioner to touch the patient, as the treatment is for the bioplasmic, or “energy body,” and not the “physical body.” The energy body is also known as aura. This aura is the blueprint or the mold of the body and interpenetrates the physical body. The energy body is said to absorb the life energy and distribute it to the different parts of the physical body. Disorders in the physical body are manifestations of the disruptions in the aura. Hence, Pranic Healing is effective on the energy body.

Pranic Healing does not need any sort of drugs or devices. The system works on the principle that the human body is able to heal itself. This healing process can be encouraged by increasing the life force in the body, which can be easily obtained from the natural elements like earth, air and sun.
