'Rub it better' say experts25th October 2007
A new study has shown that healing by â€śrubbing it betterâ€? really could help treat injuries and illnesses.
Researchers from the University of Cumbria said the technique actually helps relieve pain and reduce stress, though the team emphasised that the method could complement, but not replace, conventional medicine. The findings were based on data from 300 patients and focussed on gentle touch-healing, which involves applying non-invasive pressure to the patientâ€™s head, chest, arms, legs and feet. Those treated showed significant improvements in psychological and physical functioning.
