Pranic Healing vs. Reiki -- What is the Difference?

Pranic Healing and Reiki are both forms of energy healing, but there are some key differences between the two.

Pranic healing is a form of energy healing that was developed by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui.

It is based on the concept that the body has a bio-energy field, or "aura," that surrounds it and can become imbalanced or blocked.

Pranic healing practitioners use their hands to manipulate this bio-energy field to remove blockages and promote healing.

Reiki is a form of energy healing that was developed by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.

It is based on the idea that the body has a universal energy that flows through it and can become blocked.

Reiki practitioners use their hands to channel this universal energy into the body to promote healing.

They both have the same desired end result, yet use different modalities to get there.

One key difference between the two is that Pranic healing is more focused on manipulation of the bio-energy field, while Reiki is more focused on channeling universal energy.
