Linda Tellington-Jones reported in the Oct/Dec 2011 TTouch Newletter the following scientific findings illuminating the fact that:
TTouch increases light at the cellular level and communication between cells.
In 2006, Linda Tellington-Jones met with Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp at the International Institute for Biophysics, in Neuss, Germany.
Dr. Popp’s study of light in the cells was world renowned.
This connection helped Linda understand her intuitive sense that TTouch affects the light in the cells as she had been sensing for so many years.
“I spent two hours with Dr. Popp. I did some Clouded Leopard TTouches on his shoulder and explained that I had been sensing light in the cells for many years and that in the case of pain or fear or disease there seemed to be less light. He responded with a statement that gave us a piece of the TTouch puzzle I had been searching for forty years.
Dr. Popp said, “The light represents the communication between the cells”.
In 2009, a pilot study of TTouch took place at the International Institute for Biophysics, conducted by Dr. Popp’s son Alexander.
For the pilot study, four people with physical issues were treated. They each received 30 minutes of TTouch. The study showed a significant increase of at least 15% in cell function and was followed by a more extensive study in Vienna.
“I TTouched two people – one woman suffering from severe arthritis that caused swelling in the joints of her hands and Dr. Jurgen Schuett who was in the fourth stage of metastasized cancer. The 30 minutes I spent TTouching him in the pitch dark with his hand held under the apparatus that measures the light in the cells was one of the high points of my life. Half way through the TTouch session he said that the pain in his right side that was constantly at a 10 level had reduced to a level 4. I said, “My cells are smiling at your cells” and he replied, “My cells can feel the smiles”. It was the statement that brought a new awareness of the importance of holding a positive image no matter what the circumstances.
“What made the study significant was that the results showed that the “rubbing over the skin” touch (placebo treatment) had no significant improvement of cell function, but the three other people who received true TTouch showed marked improvement of cell function”.
This pilot study laid the foundation for the:
Bad Vislau study in Vienna, Austria in March 2010 that Tanja Lasser (TTouch practitioner) organized with Dr. Susanne Liederer (biologist at the Vienna Medical University) and Dr. Alexander Popp (from the International Institute for Biophysics).
58 people were TTouched over 3 days.
This study showed significant results which were later published in a scientific journal, the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, (see below).
Overall conclusion of the March 2010 Vienna study:
"From my point of view as a biologist, the duration of this study was long enough to measure the immediate, significant change on the emotional and psychological basis of the mind.
Although, the regulation diagnostic could indeed measure an immediate trend which was going on in regard of left-right symmetry and detoxification, in order to provide more scientific answers regarding measurable effects of Tellington TTouch on the human body, more and longer studies should be provided, but from the recent outcomes I would declare, that there IS a significant impact of TTouch in the human body, soul and mind.
I personally, will bring these results to publication in the peer review journal „Journal of Alternative and Complimentary Medicine“ with the headline:
„Tellington TTouch ® as a method for statistical significant improvement of relaxation, reduction of anxiety and psychological well-being in humans“
With best regards, Dr. Susanne Liederer (Medical University Vienna)"
A Study in TTouch Light!
Dr. Jürgen Schüett and his feedback on TTouch written by Linda tellington-Jones for the Tellington TTouch training E-News "Keeping in TTouch" May/June 2010.
On October 28, 2009, we did the pilot study with the International Institute for Biophysics of Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp, in Neuss, Germany. Tanja Lasser and I worked on four persons for the initial study. One of the four was Dr. Jürgen Schüett, a medical doctor who had practiced alternative medicine, including cranial sacral and other modalities, for many years. He had received TTouch from Angela Decker, who is a physical therapist with a large physical therapy practice, and is trained in many other modalities including TTouch For You. She had worked closely with Dr. Schüett for many years. I only met and TTouched Dr. Schüett one time in October during the Popp Institute study but my connection was profound and I felt as though I had known him for a lifetime.
One of the studies was to measure the emission of photons, which is light in the cells. During the 30-minute study we had to sit quietly in the pitch dark for 15 minutes to make sure there was no light in the room. At this time we could only talk, since measurements had to be made before and after the TTouches. I was standing and Jürgen was sitting on a stool with his right arm resting on a massage table upon which sat a 30-inch high device that looked like a giant microscope. Jürgen had to reach forward and hold his hand, palm up, against the measuring device. Alexander Popp was in the next room monitoring the device and giving commands such as, “Now hold your hand for 5 minutes under the measuring device.” Then I TTouched the hand for 15 minutes.
These procedures went on for 30 minutes. It was a fascinating experience TTouching someone for several minutes in the pitch black whom I had met only minutes before. It gave me a precious feeling of connection. Jürgen had constant pain from cancer, particularly in his right hip. At that time he was in 4th stage cancer.
I focused on PEEP breathing and holding the intention to communicate with his cells, seeing their Perfection and holding a feeling of deep gratitude as well as admiration for the body. I said at one point, “My cells are smiling at your cells,” and he replied, “I can feel your cells smiling.” As I TTouched his ribs and other areas the pain reduced from an 8 to a 3. All I did was focus on the gift of the cell communication between us and the wonder of the universe within. As I recall these precious minutes during this writing, I have a deep feeling of appreciation and connection.
Three months later I received the following letter from Angela Decker:
Sadly, Jürgen died on the 4th of January 2010 at 5:30 p.m. I TTouched him every day during the last week of his life, often twice a day, in the morning and at night. He always said how your method made him feel calm and that I need to work with you to spread the TTouch more intensely in other therapy sessions. He often repeated that your hands are very special. Your hands, your senses and your method are a unit. You cannot allow your method to be weakened by other methods. As an example he said that cranium sacral work is unnecessary. The TTouch automatically regulates the cranial pulse. Jürgen took a huge amount of knowledge with him. He was never afraid to argue when he was convinced he was right.
I wish you all the best and am looking forward to seeing you again.
Here is the text that Dr. Jürgen Schüett dictated to Angela:
"This method has to be spread to all medical professionals who are interested in learning to solve medical problems in a whole-listic way. We have far too many overly-educated idiots who get stuck in their small, limited medical field and feel they know everything there is to know. We are lacking people, therapists who are capable to see problems on a global perspective and are able to regenerate the organism of healing. They have to get together to solve problems with the organism of sick people.
For this we need people that can experience TTouch as a baseline and have a fundamental knowledge of anatomy and biochemistry. They have to have gone through some basic education system. There are not a lot of these people out there but it is possible to find them. Just like you found and convinced me." Dr. Jurgen Schuett
