Journal of Holistic Healthcare - Healing Research Lottery Grant

From the Journal of Holistic Healthcare Issue 7.1 - May 2010:

£205,000 lottery grant for healing research

The benefits of healing provided by members of The Healing Trust will be researched by Birmingham University, funded by a lottery grant. The grant was awarded to Freshwinds, a Birmingham medical charity, which will work in collaboration with the university. Patients of a Birmingham hospital who have been diagnosed with particular bowel problems and who are still suffering after completing their conventional treatment will be offered a series of five healing sessions. Veronica Bowden, general manager of The Healing Trust, says, ‘We are thrilled that our healing is being researched by such a prestigious university. Although we have countless testimonials that healing works, additional research will help healing to become more widely available within the NHS. We offer national, professional standards that patients should expect of practitioners working within the NHS. Our voluntary healing centres throughout the country are available to everyone and people can check out our website or call us for details.’
