Touch: Energy healing can reduce pain, researchers discover
About the author:

A form of energy healing that doesn't involve the touching of the patient has been proven to be a very effective pain-reliever

A form of energy healing that doesn't involve the touching of the patient has been proven to be a very effective pain-reliever.

Non-contact therapeutic touch (NCTT) provided 'significant' pain relief to a group of 90 patients who were suffering chronic pain following surgery.

One-third of the group was given NCTT, while the others had either a placebo therapy or nothing at all, in a study conducted by researchers from the University of Missouri.

Around 73 per cent of the NCTT group reported a significant reduction in pain, had fewer requests for pain medication, and slept better at night, while those given the placebo therapy, or who had no treatment, reported an increase in their pain.

NCTT practitioners claim to channel life energy through their hands to patients in a four-phase process, which comprises centring, assessment, 'unruffling' the field, and intervention.
