Abstract

Trauma in Kosovo was treated with Thought Field Therapy (TFT) during five separate trips by members of the Global Institute of Thought Field Therapy, in the year 2000. Clinicians from Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States were joined in Kosovo by four physicians who transported them to remote war-torn villages where patients with severe trauma were treated. Treatment was given to 105 patients with 249 separate traumas. Total relief was reported by 103 of the patients, and for 247 of the separate traumas. Follow-up data averaging five months revealed no instance of relapse. Copyright 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Editor’s Note

105 patients who had endured severe trauma received TFT over the course of 5 trips by clinicians from three countries. Reportedly 103 of the 105 patients reported total relief with no relapses 5 months later. Unfortunately the full paper was unavailable for review by this author and methodology and objective measures were unable to be evaluated.
