Det er gjort mange små og større studier innen Basal Kroppskjennskap. Studiene er gjort både inne forebyggende, helsefremmende og det kliniske felt, innen det somatiske området, men mest innen psykisk helsevern, psykosomatikk og psykiatri. 

 Ved Høgskolen i Bergen har flere grunnutdanningsstudenter gjort avsluttende fordypningsoppgaver knyttet til Basal Kroppskjennskap. 
Også ved Høgskolen i Oslo, Videreutdanning i psykosomatisk og psykiatrisk fysioterapi, er det gjort flere avslutningsoppgaver knyttet til BK.
