Pranic healing is the name of an alternative medicinal modality created/rediscovered by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui that uses prana (energy) to heal ailments in the body by manipulation of the person's energy field. Choa Kok Sui states that Pranic healing is like acupuncture and yoga in that it treats the "energy body" which in turn affects the "physical body".
According to Choa Kok Sui, in ancient China there were 5 levels of healing. The first being massage which is often referred to as acupressure. The second level involves healing with herbs and some animal products. The third uses acupuncture and moxibustion. In the fourth level the healer uses acupuncture with the projection of chi into the needles and meridians. The fifth level, which required the highest level of skill was the projection of chi without the use of physical contact or needles. The projection of chi energy (pranic energy) without physical contact is called Medical Chi Kung in China and was a closely guarded secret in both India and China. In India Medical Chi Kung is called Pranic Healing and was the name used by Choa Kok Sui to teach this method globally.
Pranic Healing is base on two proposed principles:
1) Law of Self-Recovery: Which according to Choa Kok Sui states that the 'body is capable of healing itself at a certain rate. If a person has a wound or burn, the body will heal itself and recover within a few days to a week. In other words, even if you do not apply antibiotic on the wound or burn, the body will repair or heal itself.'
2) Law of Life Energy: According to Choa Kok Sui 'for life to exist, the body must have prana, chi or life energy. The healing process can be accelerated by increasing life energy on the affect part and on the entire body'
Writing in the Times of India, Rajesh Parajapati a student of Pranic Healing explained: "The primary principle of pranic healing is utilising the inherent energy prana or energy of life in all beings for self-healing.
Pranic Healing is taught globally in over 80 countries and many different languages.
