The treatment, known as Jin Shin, was studied on 38 volunteers, half of whom were placed in a control group which involved the same experts conducting the treatment on other points of the body that did not come under the treatment.

"We found that the study subjects with mild traumatic brain injury who were treated with acupressure showed improved cognitive function, scoring significantly better on tests of working memory when compared to the TBI subjects in the placebo control group", lead researcher Professor Theresa Hernandez said.
