1. Pranic Healing reduces acute pain, stress and anxiety of patients at the Emergency department of a hospital
Researchers: Lauren K. L. and Linda F. L. Nurses and Pranic Healing therapists at St. Joseph Hospital Regional Medical Center, New Jersey, USA.
Objective: Evaluate the effect of Pranic Healing on reliving pain, stress and anxiety of pacients.
Method: Patients at the emergency room scaled their pain, stress or anxiety from 0 to 10, before and after being treated with Pranic Healing. The research was done with 144 patients over 8 months.
• Pain score decreased from 7.52 to 4.16 (p < 0.01).
- Stress score went from 7.33 to 2.76 (p < 0.01).
- Anxiety Score of 7.53 decreased to 3.00 (p < 0.01).
- Comparative study for pain relief: pain score decreased from 8.9 to 3.0 (p < 0.017) with Pranic Healing; 8.6 to 7.8 (non significant) with medication to decrease pain.
Conclusion: The use of Pranic Healing showed to be efficient in decreasing acute pain, stress and anxiety of patients from a Emergency department of a hospital.
2. Pranic Healing may help the treatment of tabacco addiction.
Researcher: Andrea Veronica Garcia Pacheco, M. D. from Cuenca, Ecuador
Objective: To evaluate the effect of Pranic Healing on patients with nicotine addiction through smoking.
Method: The Pranic Healing protocol for smoking was applied for 2-3 sessions per week, consisting of at least 5 sessions for each patient. The study was done with 108 patients dependent on nicotine – 54 patients receive Pranic Healing (PH) and 54 patients did not as a control group (CG) – from the age of 18 to 65 years old for a period of 8 months.
PH: patients who received Pranic Healing treatment
CG : patients whi did not receive Pranic Healing treatment
By the end of the study, the patients presented different levels of dependency in nicotine with or without PH treatment:
- Patients with no dependency: 19 PH patients compared to 9 CG (p<0.28).
- Patients with low dependency: 28 PH patients compared to 27 CG (p<0.8).
- Patients with medium dependency: 3 PH patients compared to 3 CG patients (NS).
- Patients with high dependency: 4 PH patients compared to 15 CG patients (p<01).
Conclusion: It appears that application of Pranic Healing techniques in smokers can lead to effective cessation of tobacco use.
3. Pranic Healing increases the recovery of patients brain surgery.

Objective: Present the effects of applying Pranic Healing on patients undergoing brain surgery.
Method: Measurement of clinical parameters from 30 patients undergoing surgical intervention in
conjunction with Pranic Healing compared to patients who were not treated with Pranic Healing at another facility. The parameters included duration of surgical procedure, blood loss, post-operative recovery, pain score, wound healing, Glasgow Coma Scale and ADL scores, among others.
Results: The use of Pranic Healing techniques with the surery reduced pain, blood loss, ICU and hospital stay, faster wound healing, improved neurological outcomes and overall improvement of daily living/quality of life.
