In 2015, Lauren Khalifeh, RN, BSN and Linda Flar Lund, RN, BSN presented research on the effects of Pranic Healing in the Emergency Department at the 1st Pranic Healing Research & Development Conference in Bogota, Colombia.  In their randomized control study, 48 patients of the Geriatric population entered into the Emergency Department with acute and/or chronic pain.

Results concluded that Pranic Healing was significantly effective in reducing symptoms of pain in the geriatric ED.
