Pranic Healing is an ancient science and art of healing that utilizes prana or ki or life energy to heal the whole physical body. It also involves the manipulation of ki and bioplasmic matter of the patient's body/ It has also been called medical qigong (ki kung or ki healing), psychic healing, vitalic healing, therapeutic touch, laying of the hand, magnetic healing, faith healing and charismatic healing.
Prana or ki is that life energy which keeps the body alive and healthy. In Greek it is called pneuma, in Polynesian mana, and in Hebrew ruah, which means "breath of life". The healer projects prana or life energy or "the breath of life" to the patient, thereby, healing the patient. it is through this process that this so-called "miraculous healing" is accomplished.
The word "bioplasmic" comes from bio which means life and plasma which is the fourth state of matter, the fist three being:solid, liquid, and gas. Plasma is ionized gas or gas with positive and negative charged particles. This is not the same as blood plasma. Bioplasmic body means a living energy body made up of invisible subtle matter or etheric matter. To simplify the terminology, the term "energy body" will be used to replace the word "bioplasmic body". Science, with the use of Kirlian photography, scientists have been able to study, observe, and take pictures of small bioplasmic articles like bioplasmic fingers, leaves, etc. It is through the energy body that prana or life energy is absorbed and distributed through the whole physical body.
What we call miraculous healing is nothing more than increasing the rate of self-recovery of the body. There is nothing supernatural or paranormal about pranic healing. It is simply based on natural laws that most people are not aware of.
Although science is not able to detect and measure life energy or prana, it does not mean that prana does not exist or does not affect the health and well-being of the body. In ancient times, people were not aware of the existence of electricity, its properties and practical uses. But this does not mean that electricity does not exist. One's ignorance does not change reality; it simply alters the perception of reality, resulting in misperception and misconception of what is and what is not, what can be done and what cannot be done.
