Healing Touch is a body of energetic interventions in complementary medicine that promote balance and harmony in the human biofield (energy field). Full Healing Touch Sequence (Healing Touch Level 3) training techniques, designed to clear and to repair energetic patterns in the biofield, can influence disrupted patterns and restore the biofield. Research is needed to delineate the association of biofield changes resulting from Healing Touch Level 3 interventions with measurable physical markers and psychological effects related to chronic diseases.

Suggested Protocol: Each patient in the test group should receive 10 HTL3 sessions no more than a week apart.
