The world of alternative therapies offers a multitude of techniques to enhance wellness and spiritual healing. Among these, Pranic Healing and Reiki stand out as prominent methods that many people use for relief and spiritual balance. How do these techniques vary from one another, and what are they specifically? In this blog, we’ll explore the difference between Reiki and Pranic Healing in a simple way.

What is Reiki Healing?

Reiki Healing in india

Early in the 20th century, the Japanese practice of energy healing known as reiki was established. Derived from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy), Reiki is based on the idea that health and wellness depend on the unrestricted flow of life force energy through the body. When this energy becomes blocked or unbalanced, it can lead to physical, emotional, or spiritual ailments.

Reiki practitioners employ a method known as hands-on healing, or palm healing, in which a “universal energy” is passed from the practitioner to the patient through the practitioner’s palms to promote mental or physical healing. It can be performed as a hands-on practice or through reiki distance healing, where the practitioner sends healing energy across space and time.

Here are the Benefits of Reiki Healing-

  • Reiki can make you feel relaxed and less stressed.
  • It can help you sleep better at night.
  • Reiki can help reduce pain like headaches or sore muscles.
  • It can make you feel happier and more positive.

What is Pranic Healing?

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is an energy healing system developed by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui. This approach is predicated on the basic idea that the human body is an autonomous, self-healing organism. The term “Pranic” derives from the Sanskrit word “Prana,” which means “life force.” This life force or vital energy keeps the body alive and maintains good health.

Have you ever felt more relaxed or energized after a session of any energy healing practice? In Pranic Healing, practitioners focus on the body’s energy field, specifically the aura that surrounds the body. They say that illnesses begin as energetic disturbances in the aura and then materialize as bodily ailments. Practitioners also use specific techniques to cleanse, energize, and rebalance the energy field, facilitating the healing process by removing negative energy and replacing it with fresh, positive energy.

Here are the Benefits of Pranic Healing-

  • Pranic healing can help reduce pain, speed up recovery from illnesses, and improve overall physical health.
  • It helps relieve stress, anxiety, and depression, leading to a calmer and more positive state of mind.
  • This healing technique helps to clear and balance your energy fields, increasing your overall vitality and energy.
  • Pranic healing can deepen your spiritual understanding and connection, promoting inner peace and harmony.

Pranic Healing vs Reiki: Key Differences

Pranic Healing and Reiki aim to balance the body’s energy and promote healing. Do you prefer a structured approach to healing, like in Pranic Healing, or a more intuitive method like Reiki? Here are key differences which are listed below- 

1. Focus

  • Pranic Healing- This method is more technique-oriented, with specific protocols for each type of ailment. Practitioners cleanse and energize the aura and chakras using detailed steps, including scanning the energy field, sweeping, and energizing with prana.
  • Reiki Healing- Practitioners in this practice channel the universal energy and allow it to flow where it is needed. The technique involves placing hands over the body in a series of positions to cover different organs and chakras.

2. Origin

  • Pranic Healing- Originated from the synthesis of ancient healing techniques and modern principles by Choa Kok Sui. Training is standardized, with courses that practitioners can take to advance through levels.
  • Reiki Healing- Developed by Mikao Usui in Japan. Reiki is taught by a process called attunement, where a Reiki master teaches the student how to use Reiki energy.

3. Energy Sources

  • Pranic Healing- Uses the life force or prana from the sun, air, and ground to heal. Practitioners work consciously with this energy, often using breathing techniques to harness prana.
  • Reiki Healing- Focuses on channeling the universal life force energy, with a belief that the energy knows where to go and what to heal, guided by the higher intelligence of the universe.

4. Approach to Healing

  • Pranic Healing- In this healing, practitioners use a systematic approach to cleanse the aura and chakras, which they believe improves the effectiveness of healing.
  • ReikiReiki healing in India is more passive and holistic, focusing on restoring balance to the entire body rather than targeting specific issues. 


In the end, whether you choose Pranic Healing or Reiki, both practices offer paths to wellness and balance through the subtle healing of energy. The right choice depends on your personal preferences, comfort with the techniques, and resonance with the philosophy behind each practice.

Hi, Avisha : You are an incredibly gifted tarot card reader and the reading with you recently was truly an enlightening experience. Your readings are both insightful and accurate, providing valuable guidance and direction for those seeking answers. Your intuition and ability to connect with the cards is truly remarkable. You have a deep understanding of the tarot and how to interpret the meanings of the cards. The reading was delivered with compassion and understanding, and I left feeling reassured and positive. Your ability to help people gain clarity and direction in their lives is admirable. Your readings are not only precise but also very helpful in providing deeper understanding. You possess a unique talent in deciphering and interpreting the messages of the cards. I appreciate the time and energy you put into every reading. Most importantly you said exactly same as what my horoscope guru has told before. I thank you for sharing your gifts with me.

"One of the best experiences of my life! I have worked with many healers, but the experience with Avisha was unique. Above all, we covered and healed as many areas in 11 days as we would “normally” in 4 months. With her range of knowledge, she is a real gift to anyone who will work with her."

Often heard that " life is a roller coaster", experienced this recently.

Life is unpredictable, what is happening next is next to impossible to explain, a time came in my life where there was darkness everywhere, my sister was inch by inch by my side. Lots of talks, discussions, and solutions were done but all in vain. Then my sister introduced me to Avisha Mathur.

Words fail to describe her. If you are stuck in life and have lost your direction of life Avisha is the google.

Right from the first meeting my problems became smaller and smaller and I became clearer and clearer. She is a perfect blend of not less and not too much. Her tough and appropriate counselling gave me an awakening and nudge to move away from the inflicted dilemmas, she helped me to come out of my mental loop of problem and solution. She made me realize that the remote control of my life is in my hands.Avisha guided me like a small child lost in woods .My life is still under construction but now I know which step to take next.

A big difference, a huge change and I regained my lost smile which was very dear to me. Thank you Avisha. Buzz her if vou are stuck in life. # rise above the problems with AVISHA.

I connected with Dr Avisha at the lowest point in my life (both personally and professionally). I had lost my confidence and doubted myself even for simple tasks.

Routine jobs would overwhelm me.

I couldn't talk to my dear ones and gradually felt disconnected from everyone. A painful miscarriage made me realize that i needed help.

Trealised how paralysed i was with all the negative thoughts and energy inside me. That's when i took 11 day session with Dr. Avisha, who was referred by a common friend. In the first session itself i could feel a connect with her and conversing with her (online) came very easy to me. What amazed me the most was how Dr. Avisha could perceive my feelings even when we were not talking. So after 3-4 sessions, one day i was troubled by something and i had a restless night going through the issue. In the next session Dr. Avisha told me how she could feel me having a debate last night (which i was doing mentally with my self).

Other sessions revealed how i was affected by my childhood events and how i can let go of my thoughts and inhibition to be myself again. Her non-judgmental and kind conversations helped me to be true to myself. After the 11 day session, i really did feel as if the mist of negative energy was lifting away from me. Gradually i took hold of my life and started bringing in positive changes in my routine which boosted my mental and physical health. Her sessions helped me find myself again and de-clutter my negative thoughts.

Since her sessions, i feel more confident in taking charge of my life. earlier i used to find various reasons for how i will fail a task and now even when i find myself in a challenging situation, i find a solution. Her continued support for the last one year has kept me being mentally stronger and more active.
Much gratitude

v\Living away from parents, siblings itself takes a toll on your health mind and soul, that too during the covid times, when you had no idea whether you will meet your dear ones again...

During these dreadful times, I came across Dr Avisha's energy healing sessions.

It was the bestest thing that happened to me during those tiring times.

It brought a ray of sunshine in my gloomy mind.

It made me relaxed not only physically but also mentally.

The energy healing sessions with her were the best part of the day and slowly the therapy lead me into positivity. It gave me hopes and made me a happy healthy soul.

I would totally recommend these beautiful healing session to everyone who is having a hard time in their lives.
