This chronology was created to demonstrate the ancient nature of the term Pranic Healing – which derives from multiple sources – & from multiple Authors.

The information demonstrates usage of the term – historically and globally.

Clearly the terminology – Pranic Healing – Pre-Existed usage of the term by Master Choa Kok Sui.

The very title of his first book The Ancient Science & Art of Pranic Healing (Dec. 1987 1st Release – 1988 1st Distribution) – denotes that it is a compilation of techniques – which are derivative in nature.

For example, while “Pranic Healing nach Choa Kok Sui” maybe considered to be descriptive – the term “Pranic Healing” is clearly generic and has been used by other multiple Authors – as noted below.
