Pranic healing is a claimed energy healing system founded and promoted by Choa Kok Sui (1952–2007), a Filipino entrepreneur and philanthropist of Chinese descent. The healing modality claims that prana (energy) can heal ailments in the body by contributing to the person's energy field.[1][2] Sui has also stated that pranic healing is like acupuncture and yoga in that it treats the "energy body" which in turn affects the "physical body".[3][4]

No peer-reviewed evidence or publications (in recognized medical journals) exist to support the claimed results of the practitioners. In 1995, Jack Raso described the method in the magazine Skeptical Inquirer as "mystical or supernaturalistic".[5]
