Dr. Laura Stuve, a Certified BodyTalk Instructor, practitioner, and PhD Molecular Biologist and
geneticist, performed a chronic pain study, along with Janet Galipo, Senior BodyTalk Instructor,
and 6 other American BodyTalk practitioners. The study was performed using distance sessions
only, targeting chronic pain, in individuals who had never received ANY BodyTalk before this
study. These conditions were established to comply with the National Institute of Health, and
followed their guidelines using a randomized control trial, single blinded.
In order to control for the placebo effect, keeping NIH grant credibility as the guideline, the
distance sessions were established as the blinding effect. Assessments were done by Self
Assessments using PROMIS, also NIH guidelines.
The subjects were any individuals who had chronic pain, on a pain scale from 0 – 10, 0 being no
pain and 10 being excruciating, the rating had to be more that 4.
The conditions were that all subjects had to have all correspondance done remotely, and all
sessions were distance. This meant that all subjects corresponded only via phone or through
the website. The subjects were not allowed to use any other CAM (Complimentary Alternative
Medicine) modalities for the duration of the 9 week study. The only exclusions were that
subjects had to be 18 and older and could not be on opiate based pain medications.
The results were undeniably astounding! Measurements were recorded by statistician, Dr.
Honghu Liu, PhD, a professor at UCLA’s School of Medicine who is actively teaching clinical
study design and who helped developed the PROMIS initiative.
The control group, (who DID NOT receive BodyTalk sessions), reported a 15.4% improvement,
while the study group, (who DID received sessions), reported a 70.4% improvement. When the
statistical data was analysed, a significant value will always measure under 0.05. The lower the
value, the greater the significance of improvement.
The data showed:
For Pain Level 0.0074
For Pain Impact 0.0493
For Anxiety 0.0025
For Depression 0.0321
For Anger 0.0061
For Fatigue 0.0333
After the study was over, all participants were asked which group they thought they were in.
Only 1 person from the control group thought they were in the study group. However, nearly all
of the participants in the study group thought they were receiving BodyTalk sessions.
I am thrilled and truly inspired by the work that Dr. Laura Stuve, Dr. Janet Galipo, and the
American practitioners created. Please let others know about this data. If these are the results
using distance sessions, one can only imagine the results globally!
Spread the news! BodyTalk clinically demonstrates significant improvement!
