How effective is regression therapy in reducing physical pain?



Sometimes our unexplainable physical complaints in this life could be traced back to a past life traumatic events like wars, injuries, torture, murdered, drowning and so on. Based on his research, Ian Stevenson found that some frozen physical memories from past lives are so strong that they are often linked to pain, tension, and other strange physical holding patterns in this life. Not only can regression therapy help with emotional issues, it can also help to reduce physical pain and with significant results. Andy Tomlinson devotes an entire chapter of his book Healing the Eternal Soul to explaining how regression therapy may be used to help people let go of painful physical memories from past lives.


How effective is regression therapy in reducing physical pain? The Past Life Regression Academy conducted a statistical study to determine the answer.


This study is based on the outcomes of 865 cases from Past Life Regression Academy students during their training period. Following their training, students are expected to undertake five case studies for evaluation, which often comprise more than one session per case study. Students use the SUDs (a scale of 0 to 10 for quantifying the subjective level of distress) to document changes in symptoms reported by their clients.


636 of the 865 clients had physical pain and these pain conditions were categorized into seven groups, including commonly seen physical pain like headache and migraines, stomach, neck, back and shoulder pain. Before and after SUDs scores were then analyzed for significant differences using the Wilcoxon test and Mann-Whitney test.


The most common pains were headaches and migraines (162 case studies) and stomach problems (125 cases). The other groupings were neck, back and shoulder pain (90 cases); IBS and bowel problems (84 cases); Heart related problems (74); Chest, lung and breathing problems (54) and ‘other’ (47).

The findings showed that the clients' pain was greatly reduced, from an average score of 7.9 (10 being the most intense) before therapy to 0.9 after therapy, with an average number of sessions per client of only 1.6. And surprisingly, there is minimal difference in pain improvement across the seven pain categories.


The study concluded that although care should be used since they are self-reported findings from students and have not been externally evaluated, these data reveal extraordinarily favorable outcomes in the reduction of pain experienced as a consequence of regression treatment. Furthermore, these significant benefits may be seen after just one or two sessions.
