The Touch Research Institutes are dedicated to scientifically demonstrating the benefits of touch therapy and establishing its credibility with the medical community.

The Touch Research Institutes have studied the effects of massage therapy at all stages of life, from newborns to senior citizens. From these studies the Touch Research Institutes have shown that touch therapy has many beneficial effects. For example, massage therapy has been shown to:

  • Facilitate weight-gain in preterm infants
  • Reduce stress hormones
  • Alleviate depressive symptoms
  • Reduce pain
  • Positively alter the immune system
  • Alter EEG in the direction of heightened awareness
