Touch Research–Quo Vadis? A Plea for High-Quality Clinical Trials

Bruno Müller-Oerlinghausen and Michael Eggart wrote a very compelling essay and plea for more research and clinical trials on touch research and mental health.

An excerpt:

"there is an urgent need for high-quality clinical trials examining and confirming the beneficial psychophysical effects of touch therapies in psychiatry. Further experimental research elucidating the mechanisms of action behind the mental effects of massage therapy certainly would also strengthen the acceptance of this intervention by public authorities, clinical medicine and the scientific community."
