Abstract

SummaryThis research study, which, because of its small numbers should be regarded as more of a pilot study, investigated the effect that therapeutic touch may have on measurable physical signs of the subjects involved.It also looked at any change this complementary therapy may have made in health perception immediately following the experiment and 1 week later.The design is modelled on that of (Quinn 1984) reference 28, eminent researcher in the field of energy exchange.Therapeutic touch is a misnomer because physical touch is not necessary - it is the energy field that is touched.
