GREENWICH - Patients at Greenwich Hospital are turning to a new form of therapy for everything from high blood pressure to chronic pain.

Officials at the hospital say more than 2,000 patients a year use "energy therapy" to recover from surgery, chemotherapy and more.

Dr. Henri Rocca, of Greenwich Hospital's Center for Integrative Medicine, says studies show that "energy therapy" and the "healing touch technique" promote the growth of healthy cells.

More than 100 volunteers have been trained on how to use the "healing touch."
