I completed over 130 hours of research using Quantum-Touch, which is an energy healing modality to treat Fibromyalgia. National Fibromyalgia Association describes Fibromyalgia (FM) as a chronic pain illness characterized by widespread musculoskeletal aches, pain and stiffness, soft tissue tenderness, general fatigue, and sleep disturbances. The most common sites of pain include the neck, back, shoulders, pelvic girdle, and hands, but any body part can be affected. Fibromyalgia patients experience a range of symptoms of varying intensities that wax and wane over time.
It is estimated that approximately 3-6% of the U.S. population has FM. Although a higher percentage of women of all ages and races are affected, it does strike men and children. Because of its debilitating nature, fibromyalgia has a serious impact on patients' families, friends, and employers, as well as society at large.
Quantum-Touch (QT) is an easy to learn method of hands-on healing that uses the scientific principles of resonance and entrainment - combined with very specific breathing techniques and simple body awareness exercises - to create a powerful, yet natural, field of healing energy. There is no physical manipulation in QT. Only the lightest, most gentle touch is used. QT has been tested in clinical settings and used in hospitals and operating room. The average pain scale range before each session dropped on average 1 point each week. For example, a client who came in with a pain scale of 8 the first week, came in each of the following weeks with her pain scale beginning at 7, then 6, then 5, then 4.View Thread
