Regression is really a whole lot easier than that.
I know of a person who has a friend with a baboon as a pet.
The friend (of the person I know) has a problem with head lice,
and so gets a good grooming from the baboon every so often.
It is effective and very relaxing, apparently.

Cheers,
Peter

  It reminds one of a story that a comic (was his name Steven Reich?) once made.  He related putting instant coffee in his microwave and almost going back in time.

    It is impossible to travel faster than light, and certainly
    not desirable, as one's hat keeps blowing off.

    Forget speeds faster than light.  How about faster than simultaneous?

    "Backward research goes forward"

       University of Washington physicist (and science-fiction author) John
       Cramer is moving forward with his experiment in backward causality,
       thanks in part to tens of thousands of dollars in contributions sent
       in by his fans. Although Cramer emphasizes that his lab is looking at
       'nonlocal quantum communication' rather than backward time travel per
       se, the gadgetry he's assembling could settle a controversy
       surrounding a seemingly faster-than-light effect that Albert Einstein
       thought was downright spooky.

       Cramer, who is the author of two science-fiction novels and a regular
       columnist for Analog magazine, said the experiment represents "a rare
       opportunity to push the envelope of quantum mechanics." No matter how
       it turns out, the results will be put to good use, he said.
       
       "If this experiment we're doing works, then I will follow up and push
       it as hard as possible. And if it doesn't work, I will write a
       science-fiction novel where it does work," he said. "It's a win-win
       situation."
