Pranic healing is a well-known form of healing in India. Vital energy, Prana, is transferred to the body part requiring healing from either the hands or the feet, or, by concentration upon the affected body part. When this healing technique is used upon another person it is termed “magnetic healing”.
To use this Bhastrika as a healing breath, a held in breath is employed after the rapid moving of the breath. When the required numbers of rounds have been completed, take in a deep, complete breath. Swallow the breath and hold the breath for as long as it is comfortable for you to do so. Now, let the breath out very slowly and with great control, all of the while mentally concentrating upon any body part requiring healing or rejuvenation. The whole cycle of the breath can be repeated up to three times at a session.
