Abstract: At a comparison among 5 therapy methods the small psychotherapy with a success-rate of 74% is high-significantly more prosperous than the other examined methods. The acupuncture with 31% long-term success is significantly superior to the pseudoacupuncture (17.2%). The papaverine therapy results in a long-lasting status free of symptoms in 17.2% of the patients and is significantly different from the results of the papaverine-placebo-therapy (08). Distinct differences in the success-rates of the small psychotherapy with different therapists prove the role of the personality and the perfection in mastering the methods with psychotherapeutic procedures. Comparable differences between the examiners were not found among the effects of a spasmolytic therapy.
