Healing Touch Research
Stress and Relaxation
One of the primary reasons that clients seek Healing Touch is for relaxation and stress management. Clients often find themselves drifting off to sleep or put in a deep state of relaxation during the treatment.
Countless studies are available surrounding the benefits of relaxation. These can include:
- decreased blood pressure
- decreased heart rate
- increased digestive function
- increased immunity
- increased fertility
- anti-inflamatory responses
A recent report suggests that the relaxation response can alter genes through the relaxation response.
Massachusetts General Hospital. "Study identifies genes, pathways altered during relaxation response practice." ScienceDaily. 1 May 2013.
This information comes from both clinical research through Scholarly journals, Google scholar, and also observed and reported in Healing Touch sessions. All sessions are individual and will have individualized outcomes.
