A systematic review of the current research into the Lightning Process has been published by a team from Kings College London and London Metropolitan University. Systematic reviews are considered to be the highest level of research as they present a detailed overview of everything that has been published about a specific topic, so we are very pleased to have this important addition to the growing evidence base for the efficacy of the Lightning Process.
This review published in 2020 by the journal Explore identified these highlights:
- This is the first systematic review of the Lightning Process.
- The systematic review found a variance in the quality of studies from good to fair and in reported patient outcomes.
- All studies evidenced a level of benefit from the intervention, commonly for the majority of participants.
and concluded that there was an emerging body of evidence supporting the efficacy of the LP for many participants with fatigue, physical function, pain, anxiety and depression.
