Definition - What does Pranic Healing mean?
Pranic Healing is a trademarked method of healing that uses the body's energy fields and the life-force energy known as prana, a Sanskrit word that means “breath of life.”
Spiritual teacher GrandMaster Choa Kok Sui founded the modern-day Pranic Healing as a way to open the body's energy channels and allow the body to heal itself. Pranic Healing – a “no-touch” system – may be combined with and complement other medical treatments. It cleanses the person's aura (energy body), thereby allowing prana to flow freely.
Yogapedia explains Pranic Healing
The concept behind Pranic Healing is based on the belief that some life events and experiences can deplete the body's energy and create congestion in the energy pathways. The concepts behind Pranic Healing date back thousands of years in yogic and Hindu traditions. It is believed that the pranic healer can transmit universal energy to the person seeking healing, similar to Reiki.

- Reduce stress

- Ease physical pain
- Clear emotional blockages
- Stimulate inner healing
- Treat a wide range of conditions, such as headaches, asthma, cancer symptoms, flu symptoms and mental illness
