Pranic Healing is not intended to replace orthodox medicine, but rather to complement it. - Master Choa Kok Sui
Pranic Healing is a unique healing therapy, which is based on the principle that body has the ability or power to heal or cure itself. Although this therapy of energy healing has been existing in the ancient medical theories of Rishis in India or the Chinese Taoists, it has been revived and popularized by Master Choa Kok Sui, who is considered as the modern founder of this kind of healing. Master Choa Kok Sui was a chemical engineer before he rose to popularity with his unique therapy of healing the body.
What is Prana
chakras in the body
Practitioners of pranic healing believe that there exists a vital energy, or an invisible force in our body that is responsible for our health, this vital energy is termed as prana of the body. The word prana has actually been derived from the ancient Sanskrit language. This life energy is called Pneuma in Greek, in Polynesian it is called Mana, Ki in Japanese, Chi in Chinese, and it is called Rua in Hebrew. There are said to be three basic sources of prana which are air, sun, and ground, whereas there exists a fourth divine prana, which, one can achieve after regular mediation.

The air prana is believed to exist in the air that surrounds us and can be absorbed not just by the lungs while breathing, but by the energy centers or chakras in the body. The air prana can be absorbed with deep breathing and also, through the pores of the skin. The ground prana is absorbed through the soles of the feet and hence, walking barefoot increases the amount of ground prana absorbed by the body. The ground prana is supposed to increase a person's capacity to work and ability to think more clearly. The water prana is nothing but the prana absorbed by the water from sunlight, air, and ground. The water prana can be obtained from water and food.
