Benor, Daniel J, Healing Research: Volume I, Spiritual Healing: Scientific Validation of a Healing Revolution, Southfield, MI: Vision Publications, 2001. ISBN 1-886785-11-2. Healers describe their work, research in parapsychology as a context for understanding healing, brief summaries of randomized controlled studies, pilot studies. " If we take a broad view, out of 198 controlled experiments of healing, 88 (49.7 per cent) demonstrate effects at statistically significant levels that could occur by chance only one time in a hundred or less (p < .01); and another 41 (23.2 per cent) at levels that could occur between two and five times out of a hundred (p < .02-.05). In other words, close to three quarters (72.9 percent) of all the experiments demonstrate significant effects. "
