Rogerian science, phantoms, and therapeutic touch: exploring potentials.
Traditional medical approaches to the treatment of potentially distressing phantom pain and sensations have been inconsistent in their success. In this article, the subject of phantom pain and sensations is explored and reconceptualized according to Martha Rogers' science of unitary human beings. Emergent perspectives, illustrated by a series of short case studies, suggest that such a reconceptualization and particularly the use of therapeutic touch may have a significant impact on positive human field image patterning.
