Pain: From Chronic Illness

Chronically ill patients experienced decreased symptoms from chronic illness.

A 1998 study randomly assigned 120 chronically ill patients who experienced pain to one of four groups: energy healing, muscle relaxation, false energy healing, or no-treatment. All of the patients had pain that had been present for at least one year. The initiating illnesses included headaches, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, ulcer, asthma, hypertension, and HIV infection. The three treatment groups all received ten 30-minute treatments. These were spaced twice a week for five weeks. The patients were assessed before and after the series of treatments using several pain and anxiety scales. The energy-healing group was also assessed three months later.

Comparing the pre- and post-treatment scores showed the energy healing sessions to be significantly better than the other treatments on 10 out of 12 variables. Three months later these changes remained consistent and there were further highly significant reductions in these patients’ total pain rating and in their sensory and affective qualities of pain. Within the energy healing group, depression decreased significantly more in the men than in the women. However, the women experienced greater increases in their spiritual connection.

Meditation: Sandra Egli
Music: Torey Ronhovde

The wisdom of a thousand generations guides you today. Only listen. Without a sound their voices reverberate in your cells. Settle within and choose your path.

All of us come from strength, fortitude, perseverance. No matter how difficult their lives, our ancestors made it through and passed on life for the next generation. Over and over, until it came to you. The intelligence that guided them has also come to you.

To Thine own Self be true.

If I could present you with a single blessing, it would be the gift of Mindfulness. Awareness of yourself: body, emotions, and self-talk, all the time. Our immediate experience is the ultimate exploration that only grows richer with time. What we do or don't do, and the roots of our behavior, are accessible with the simple practice of noticing immediate experience. It is this practice that makes it possible to know and be true to ourselves.


Sandra's graceful way of listening & non-judgmental demeanor allowed me to open up effortlessly. I was certain, as I left her office, that I had received precisely the healing I needed.
