What Does the Research Say?

Since the Healing Touch program is relatively new, research on Healing Touch is still in its early stages. As of August 2008, there were 115 completed research studies on Healing Touch.

Terapeuttinen kosketus on tutkimusten kautta todettu auttavan kivunhoidossa. Slater (1995) toi tutkimuksessaan esiin, että kivunlievitys oli merkittävämpää käyttäen terapeuttista kosketusta, kuin vain hoitajien läsnäolo potilaille. Wardellin pilotti tutkimus vuodelta 2005 osoittaa, että terapeuttinen kosketus auttaa krooniseen kipuun ja vähentää väsymystä. Tutkimus tehtiin henkilöillä, joilla on selkäydinvamma. Guerrerio, Slater ja Cook (2001) osoittivat tutkimuksessaan terapeuttisen kosketuksen auttavan väsymykseen johtuen sädehoidosta, jota yksilöt saivat gynekologiseen ja rintasyöpään. Ryhmä, joka sai terapeuttista kosketusta koki merkittävää väsymyksen vähentymistä kuin kontrolliryhmä. Terapeuttinen kosketus auttoi depressioon, levottomuuteen ja vihaan.

 

Post-White, Kinney et al.(2003) mittasivat terapeuttisen kosketuksen ja terapeuttisen hieronnan vaikutuksia syöpää sairastavilla.  Tutkimuksen tulokset osoittivat että terapeuttinen kosketus ja hieronta vaikuttivat merkittävästi kivun ja levottomuuden lievittymiseen ja lisäsi rentoutumisen tunnetta. DuBrey (2006) tutki terapeuttisen kosketuksen vaikutusta alkoholismista parantumiseen. Terapeuttista kosketusta saavan ryhmän onnellisuuden ja tyytyväisyyden tunne kasvoi ja heidän sydämen sykkeensä sekä kivunkokemuksen tunteensa laskivat. Tutkimus osoitti myös, että terapeuttista kosketusta saavan ryhmän henkilöt olivat vähemmän kireitä ja pahoilla mielin. Zimmer, Meier ja Rolf (2009) toivat tutkimuksessa esiin terapeuttisen kosketuksen vaikutuksesta lapsilla, jotka olivat toipumassa leikkauksenjälkeisestä periodista. Terapeuttinen kosketushoito vähensi lasten kivunkokemuksen tunnetta ja lisäsi tyytyväisyyden tunnetta leikkauksen jälkeen.

 

Pain relief: Various studies show some pain relief with Healing Touch. In 1995, Slater studied twenty-three patients with pain from abdominal surgery. One group received two Healing Touch techniques and the other group simply had a nurse pay attention to them. Slater found that there was more pain relief with the Healing Touch techniques than from the nurse’s attention alone. Wardell published a pilot study in 2005 of twelve patients with chronic pain from a spinal cord injury. In weekly home visits, one group received Healing Touch and the other group got instructions in progressive relaxation. The study measured the pain level, mood, and satisfaction of both groups and found some reduction of the pain in the Healing Touch group and less fatigue. However, there was a wide difference among individuals. Reduction in fatigue, depression and anxiety: A 2001 study by Guerrerio, Slater, and Cook examined the effectiveness of Healing Touch in reducing fatigue from radiation therapy in sixty-two women with gynecological and breast cancers. The Healing Touch group had a greater reduction in fatigue than the control group, as well as more improvement of their depressionanxiety, and anger. Managing symptoms of cancer treatments: A 2003 study by Post-White, Kinney and others measured the effects of Healing Touch and therapeutic massage on cancer patients. They enrolled 230 patients with cancer who were receiving the identical repeating cycle of chemotherapy in a study. They found that Healing Touch and therapeutic massage are effective in reducing painanxiety, and fatigue and increasing relaxation. There was no significant effect on nausea.

 

Stress reduction: In 2006, DuBrey studied the effects of Healing Touch on patients recovering from alcoholism. She randomly placed 148 patients admitted to a hospital for alcoholism into two groups, one of which received Healing Touch. The heart rate of patients receiving Healing Touch went down more and they were happier, more satisfied, and had a greater reduction in pain. There was also evidence that the Healing Touch group was less tense and upset. Wound and post-operative recovery: Zimmer, Meier, and Rolf (2009) reported on the effect of Healing Touch on children’s pain and comfort in the postoperative period. This study reviewed the clinical records of 1,613 patients who received Healing Touch therapy. The study provided preliminary support for the use of healing touch therapy to decrease pain and increase comfort for children during the postoperative period.
