Insomnia is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping. This case pertains to a working, married female, aged 27 years with insomnia, complaining of irritability, low energy, daytime sleepiness and depressed mood. Pranic Healing (PH) is a natural healing technique that uses prana to treat illness. It is a non-touch, drugless, complementary therapy that corrects imbalances in the body’s energy field. Insomnia was measured using the Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS). On self-assessment before PH, AIS score was 16, indicating insomnia condition in the subject. A total of six pranic healing sessions, of 20 minutes each were applied on the subject. After six PH sessions AIS score was two, indicating a normal sleeping pattern. During the healing sessions, the subject expressed unique experiences of tingling sensation in hands, heavy energy moving out of the body and lightness of the body. At the end of the healing process, the subject experienced a sense of calmness, well-being and being energetic.
