Pranic Healing research

Pranic Healing research published in Journal of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Congratulations to Dr. Jason Calva, Dr. Glenn Mendoza and Dr. Shu Wang on their latest article Integrating the Zang Fu Organs of Traditional Chinese Medicine with the Chakras of Pranic Healing published in the Journal of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The authors correlate the main principles in traditional Chinese Acupuncture with the primary techniques of Master Choa Kok Sui’s Pranic Healing. By offering more comprehensive treatments, the practitioner can have a better opportunity for successful healing to take place.

Dr. Jason Calva also presented his research on Pranic Acupuncture at the 10th Global Pranic Healing Convention last May in the Philippines. You can view his presentation here.


“Pranic Healing and traditional Chinese medicine complement one another, and understanding how they fit together will benefit patients and practitioners of both systems.” – Dr. Jason Calva
