Frequently Asked Questions

1.  What is Pranic Healing?

I created a page by this name which answers it best!  Click here.

2.  Is Pranic Healing like ____ healing modality?

I often get asked if Pranic Healing is like Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Acupuncture, or other energy healing modalities.  All energy healing modalities work on the energy body which consists of the aura (the entire energy body), chakras (energy centers which pump energy, or prana, throughout the entire system), and meridians (energy channels which act like energetic “blood vessels,” through which prana travels throughout the entire system).  Each energy healing modality has a different technique or different emphases.  For instance, some use physical touch and others don’t.

In Pranic Healing, we do not physically touch the client.  Physical touch is not necessary in energy healing because the energy field extends beyond the physical body.  We can touch a person’s energy and apply healing without physically touching, and, in fact, if you are in the same room with another person, your energy fields are already touching.  I wrote a blog post on this topic here.

The other biggest difference between Pranic Healing and other energy healing modalities is that we focus on cleansing–removing dirty, congested, and blocked energy from the system.  We energize only after blockages are removed.  Without removing blockages, it’s very difficult for fresh prana to travel to where it needs to go anyway!  By simply cleansing, fresh prana rushes into the body naturally and on its own because there is now space for it.  The Pranic Healer does not need to energize very much, often times.  The body was depleted BECAUSE it was congested in the first place.

Also special about Pranic Healing is that we use protocols, or specific healing instructions designed for each ailment, which is not the case for all energy healing modalities.  There is a protocol designed for asthma, migraines, stress, anxiety, fibromyalgia, back pain, sinusitis, cancer, you name it!  Far too many to list here.  Pranic Healing sessions are tailored to the individual and their ailment.  Pranic Healing is results-oriented.

3.  How many sessions will I need?  How can I reduce the number of sessions I need?

No matter your health condition, we cannot predict how many sessions a person will need.  We also cannot guarantee a healing result, just like your doctor or other healer cannot.  There are many factors that affect  the rate of healing and whether a person will heal.

First, it depends on the severity of the ailment and how long you have had it.  As an example, for serious and chronic health conditions (multiple sclerosis, HIV, cancer, etc), it can take 3-6 months of treatments 2-3 times a week to see a big change.

For moderate health conditions, I suggest starting with 10-12 sessions at the rate of 3 times per week.  There is usually significant improvement after this point.

Other factors that affect the rate of healing include:

* Frequency of sessions

* Lifestyle such as diet and exercise.

* Overall stress level.  Are you working at an incredibly demanding job?  Do you share living space with people who are chronically stressed out or emotionally volatile?

* Meditation–practicing Twin Hearts Meditation daily or close to daily greatly accelerates the healing process

* Energy Hygiene; when we work together, I will teach you basic energy hygiene practices that keep your energy system much cleaner and healthier, and these accelerate healing

* Tithing–quite frankly, if you help, give, share, and heal others, you are entitled to receive the same.  The energy comes back to you; it’s a universal law.  I recommend to clients, especially those with serious health conditions, to put into place a regular practice of tithing and service.

People that heal fastest are highly motivated to heal and resolve the underlying cause of their ailment.  They are not afraid to change lifestyle habits, and they are extremely motivated to feel better and change their lives for the better!

Actually, the people who, in my experience, heal fastest, are the ones on a budget who cannot spend money on unlimited sessions.  They are highly motivated to get the most out of each session and focus on healing in between our sessions as well.  Interestingly, those with plenty of money to spend on sessions tend to rely on me to do the work without adding lifestyle changes or home care to their routine.  These cases take longer to heal.

Contrary to most businesses, my goal is not for long-term clients!  My goal is for you to heal quickly so I can heal more people.  My REAL ulterior motive is to help people experience the power of Pranic Healing so they will want to take the Level I class–then they can subsequently heal themselves!  I win when you don’t need me, or need me very little!  What I do with some people who have taken Pranic Healing is I do  1-2 sessions on them per week, and they do 1-2 sessions on themselves per week, so it’s a team effort.  They don’t have to pay for as many sessions but still get help.

4.  What are your rates?

For a 50-60 minute session, $75.  For a 90-min session, $110.  I recommend starting with one or more 90-min sessions for people who have serious health conditions.  Otherwise, 60-min sessions are usually fine.  I offer package discounts at 8, 10, and 14 sessions.  See my Pranic Healing Services  page for details.

5.  How long have you been doing this?

I have been practicing and studying Pranic Healing for 8 years.  I got my Associate Certification in 2010.

To be Associate Certified, the healer has to complete 25 cases (no matter how many hours or sessions that entails), and those people have to be 80-100% healed* of the condition they came to you with.  Some of the conditions I helped heal for my certification included:

Migraines, smoking addiction, candida, back pain, cataracts, fear, anxiety, ulcer, shin splints, food addiction, vertigo, tinnitus, neck/shoulder pain, and more.

*Certification requirements have changed slightly since that time.

7.  Do you have experience healing _____ condition?

Since there are thousands of health ailments–physical as well as mental/emotional, you probably won’t find a Pranic Healer who has worked on everything!

Experience healing the same condition many times is certainly helpful.  However, I believe if you take two experienced Pranic Healers working on the same health condition, with one of those Pranic Healers having extended experience with that particular ailment, at least 90% of the techniques they both use would be identical.  This is because both healers will both be using the protocol created for the ailment. This tells the healers which chakras, organs, etc. to cleanse and with which colored pranas to cleanse with; plus which to energize and with which colored pranas.  The healer who has worked extensively on a certain health condition may have picked up a trick or two not in the protocol which would help.  However, it would comprise a small minority of the healing treatment.

What is far more important is whether the healer has experience and whether the healer meditates regularly.  It also matters which meditations you do.  The meditations we use in Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga are extremely powerful and have a compounding effect on the meditator over time.  One of the many powerful and beneficial effects of practicing these meditations is that it greatly expands the size of the meditator’s energy body and energetic output when healing. As an example, when an average person without healing experience energizes, the energy coming out of their hand could be compared to a stream.  After doing powerful meditations for years, this stream becomes a fire hose.

This means the healer can produce a more powerful healing session.  In short, get more done in less time.  By the time I was finishing up my last few healing cases for my certification, I was amazed to notice I was healing similar ailments in a fraction of the time it had taken me when I first started the process.
