Past-Life Therapy is a product of the evolution of traditional psychotherapy. It can be considered both as a natural progression of age regression and as a means of accessing the collective unconscious. There are differing methods of recalling past-life reports. Various explanations for the phenomena discussed are other personal lives (past, future and simultaneous) , collective unconscious including morphic field, quantum field and simultaneous time; and false memories including implanted memories, cryptomnesia, and memories of others, such as possession. Although most of the research prior to 1980 was centered around verifying the facts recalled in other historical life times, in order to prove reincarnation, the historical information revealed in past life experiences do not have to be factual for the client to benefit from the therapy. Case studies and empirical studies will be critically reviewed and suggestions will be made for the design of further studies.
