Proof shifts paradigms

Past Life and Regression Therapy Research

We understand the importance of research in past life and regression therapy to gauge real results and proving efficacy. When working with our clients the therapists always work with measurable symptoms to track the healing process in quantifiable increments over the duration of therapy and this can also be used for therapy research.


On a grander scale, however, there is much we can do to promote global awareness and acceptance of Regression Therapy as a truly viable form of healing — so viable, in fact, that it often works when other methods don’t. The SRTA is currently engaging our therapists in research which we will publish on an on going basis. Several therapists among us are conducting their own research as well.


What we present here is a start. May the following case studies and research be a resource to you as you learn more about Regression Therapy as a way to healing and personal empowerment.

Regression and Past Life Therapy Large Scale Research

Resolving Emotions 

Hazel Denning studied the results of eight Regression Therapists with over 1000 clients between 1985 and 1992. The results were measured just after the therapy, after six months, one year, two years and five years. Of the 450 clients who could still be tracked after 5 years; 24% reported the symptoms had completely gone, 23% reported considerable or dramatic improvement, 17% reported noticeable improvement (TanDam, 1990).​ Helen Wambach (Snow,1986) conducted the largest study using 26 regression therapists who had worked with a total of 17,350 clients. Of these 63% reported an improved in a physical symptom, and 40% reported an improvement in their interpersonal relationships.

Resolving Intrusive Thoughts

Ron Van der Maesen (1999) worked with fifty-four clients who had reoccurring disturbing voices or thoughts. At a six month follow up after the therapy monitored by an external Psychiatrist, 25% found the disturbing voices disappeared, and a further 32% could now cope. Overall 80% had a positive subjective experience and would recommend this therapy for reoccurring problems like these in others.

Spiritual Insights

Dr. Heather Rivera (2012) worked with 180 clients from a wide range of religious backgrounds and showed that apart from the therapeutic benefits 74% found their life was more meaningful and 80% found death no longer held any fear.

Resolving Unexplainable Pain

Students of the Past Life Regression Academy are required to conduct five case studies for assessment following their training. Students document, among other things, changes in symptoms reported by their clients on a scale of 0 to 10. Over a ten year period the graduating students had seen 865 clients of which 636 had symptoms of unexplainable physical pain with an underlying emotional cause. The most common pains were headaches and migraines (162), stomach problems (125) neck, back and shoulder pain (90 cases); bowel problems (84 cases); heart related problems (74); chest, lung and breathing problems (54) and other (47). The average level across all these areas before therapy was 7.9, with 10 being the highest intensity ever experienced. After therapy there was a dramatic reduction in the symptoms to an average level of 0.9.
