An engineer by degree and businessman by profession, Master Choa&apos;s analytical skills and natural proclivity for experimentation resulted in innovations to the arts of healing and meditation, making them more practical and easy to learn. <br />He spent more than 30 years researching and studying esoteric sciences, various healing techniques, and eventually developing the principles, techniques, and practical applications of Pranic Healing as it is widely known today. <br />Modern Pranic Healing as a science was finally born in late 1987, with the publication of Master ChoaKok Sui’s book, The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing, which has since been translated into more than 30 languages and distributed in over 80 countries. He extensively travelled to all 5 continents to disseminate the teachings to thousands of students from all walks of lives.<br />He later founded the Institute for Inner Studies and the World Pranic Healing Foundation, Inc., and authored 20 more books on Pranic Healing and spirituality.<br />Note: Grand Master is a title given in Asian countries as a sign of respect to a senior teacher.<br />
