The people at Healing Touch clearly have more important things to do than collect an easy $1 Million. As I reported last Monday, I emailed the Executive Director/Hospital Based Program Lisa Anselme, and the Research Director Diane Wardell with the following:
I note you are giving certification in Healing Touch.
Could you please point me to some independent tests showing that HT works, and what its benefits are? You may be aware that the James Randi Educational Foundation (http://www.randi.org/research/index.html), has offered $1 million to any Therapeutic Touch practitioner who can validate TT using scientific principles and methodology. Such a test would be independently administered, of course. Would be interested in applying? I’m sure the money would be useful for further research funding, and the publicity would encourage more people to get involved.
Thanks and regards
No reply from either of them. Strange, you’d think a million dollars would be useful to fund more treatments, if nothing else. Perhaps they’re too busy, or already have enough money. Must be something like that. Couldn’t be because they know they would fail any proper scientific test because it’s all nonsense. Certainly not that.
