PRANIC HEALING is a highly developed and tested system of energy based healing techniques that utilizes "prana" to balance, harmonize and transform the body's energy processes. "Prana" is a Sanskrit word that means "life-force". This invisible bio-energy or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains a state of good health. In acupuncture, the Chinese refer to this subtle energy as "Chi". It is also called "Ruah" or the "Breath of Life" in the Old Testament. Grand Master Choa Kok Sui developed simple, powerful and effective energy healing techniques based on the principle that the body is a "self-repairing" living entity possessing the innate ability to heal itself. Pranic Healing works on the principle that healing processes are accelerated by focusing life force or vital energy (Prana) on the affected part of the physical body as well as the entire energy body of the individual.
