From a news story [Adam the Healer – Nineteen-Year-Old Says His Touch Can Cure Diseases, ABCNews ABC.com July 13, 2006] :
Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard Medical School and the Mind/Body Center says it does not surprise him that people improve or are even healed after going to Adam.
“We have within ourselves self-healing capacities that can be turned on by belief and expectancy,” says Benson. “When you’re in pain or you’re suffering, you can’t [turn them on]. It’s very difficult to believe that you could heal yourself.”
Benson says that’s why Adam’s role, as an external healer, is so important. “Whether or not science can defend Adam’s work remains in question. One thing, however, is undeniable: This teenager gives some people the hope they need.

“I tune in psychically every time I work with someone, and I encourage them to tune in also, and I bring a spiritual sensibility to the work, always keeping in mind that true healing occurs when you connect with the greater spirit all around us and within us. Psychic ability goes hand in hand with all exceptional ability. And it absolutely can be developed.”
