RIGHT IMPACT:Students of Arivayalam in BHEL Township in Tiruchi being initiated into 'Pranic healing' therapy.
TIRUCHI: An experiment with Pranic Healing, the no-touch, no-drug therapy, being carried out by experts at Arivalayam, a school for special children in BHEL township, is fetching encouraging results.
The therapy, carried out in 40-minute sessions on all weekdays, has led to significant improvement in the behaviour and mental development of a group of students residing in the hostel. Their stress level is considerably reduced and they are able to express their needs and feelings in a better way, said E. Thirumavalavan of BHEL, Tiruchi's Safety Management department, who handles the sessions, thanks to the support he receives from the Arivalayam Trust and Management.
Pranic Healing, he explained, is based on two simple principles that the human body has the power to heal itself and that this process is accelerated by transferring prana or life energy to the area where it is needed.
The energy body with its energy centres, also known as chakras, control and energise the internal organs. By treating the energy body and the chakras, a person's well being is ensured at all levels - physical, emotional and mental.
A pranic healer activates the energy body in two steps: cleansing the diseased energy in the energy body to remove pain or discomfort, and by transferring fresh energy to the affected areas. The duration and frequency of treatment depends on various factors including the severity of the problem, age and receptivity of the patient.
This healing method can be successfully employed to heal special children with autism, down syndrome, trisomy, dyslexia and other deficiencies. By energising and activating depleted chakras, the mental development of special children can be accelerated.
It takes about five years to heal a ‘moderately' affected Mentally retarded person, said Mr. Thirumavalavan, adding that another useful technique to treat special children is the ‘Superbrain Yoga', known locally as ‘Thoppu Karanam'.
These methodologies put them in a state of preparedness to take up vocations and stand on their own legs socially and economically, much to the relief of their parents and teachers. He was also confident that the progress ensured by Pranic healing would prompt other parents who send their children to Arivalayam from their homes to derive the benefit.
Pranic Healing is well suited for those with cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and nerve deafness, and can also be used to treat simple as well as chronic ailments.
Many complaints such as arthritis, diabetes, blood pressure, heart problems, respiratory problems, cancer, stress, emotional and psychological problems have been successfully treated by pranic healing, Mr. Thirumavalavan said.
