 PTSD Symptoms Alleviated by Healing Touch and Guided Imagery

The study was conducted among 123 Marines, who returned from deployment to Camp Pendleton between July 2008 and August 2010.

Six sessions over three weeks for 68 of the participants showed positive results. They experienced relief from their traumatic symptoms like nightmares, insomnia, flashbacks as compared to 55 who received normal treatment.
