The existence of energy body was known to people since ancient times. In the Upanishads there is mentioning about subtle bodies of a human being namely, annamaya kosha, pranamaya kosha, manomaya kosha, vignanamaya kosha etc. The existence of the pranamaya kosha or the etheric body was discovered scientifically with the help of Kirlian Camera in the year 1939 by a Russian scientist Dr Simon Kirlian. In the present age we have many advanced versions of this camera which can measure the energy levels of various organs. Hence we can conclude that the body has two aspects;
- Visible physical body
- Invisible energy body.
The invisible energy is also knows as Aura, Bio plasmic body, Etheric double etc. The physical body and the Aura co-exist. The energy body is inside the physical body and radiates outside the physical body. These two bodies affect each other. If the physical body is sick, the corresponding aura will have imbalances. The medical doctors treat the physical body with the help of drugs or herbs. Pranic healers treat the corresponding Aura using energy. The integration of treatment of physical body and the energy body aims at curing many chronic ailments and the trend has already started in many parts of the world. The integrated approach in treatment is the future.
