The Psi of Relief: Research in Psychic Healing and Related Topics

Benor, Daniel J.

 This is a comprehensive annotated bibliography of the scientific literature on psi healing from several continents. The author, who is an M.D., takes the position that "healing offers a non-invasive, non-dangerous supplement to conventional medical therapy." The first of three volumes, entitled Research in Healing, reviews over 100 controlled experiments on psi healing as well as relevant psychological and parapsychological studies, with some informal anecdotal material as well. Technical material is critically analyzed and is discussed in terms of its relevance and importance. Volume II, Energy Medicine, reviews investigations of acupuncture, homeopathy, craniosacral osteopathy, and the literature on spiritual healing, psychic surgery, and other diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. These data indicate that there are energies within and around living bodies that the author suggests may provide an explanation for some levels of psi healing. The last volume, Healing in the Light of Recent Research, presents the author's experiences with healing, explanatory theories for healing, and a topical, comprehensive synthesis of the earlier volumes. Each volume has its own glossary, chapter notes, and bibliography. Approximately 1,200 works are cited in all. [This annotation is based on the table of contents and a synopsis supplied by the author.]
