1. Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology in a randomised double-blind study of 167 subjects with arthritis was shown to significantly reduce pain and stiffness, and improve the range of motion of the affected joints. One hundred percent relief of symptoms was the most commonly reported category of improvement due to treatment. Analysis by sub-categories of peripheral arthritis, painful conditions of the spine and rheumatoid arthritis also produced significant results. The instantaneous relief of pain and improvement in function in such a high proportion of subjects with chronic arthritis is unparalleled in modern medical science.
