Disease relevance of Massage


High impact information on Massage

  • CONCLUSIONS: Specific reflexology treatment was of benefit in alleviating motor; sensory and urinary symptoms in MS patients [2].
  • A silicon-coated 16F latex catheter was indwelling during determination of the therapy zone and treatment so that critical tissue at the midline was thoroughly treated [3].
  • Thirty-two subjects, preselected for exhibiting an anteriorly tilted pelvis, were randomly assigned to either an Experimental Group (n = 16) that received a 45-minute Rolfing pelvic mobilization session or a Control Group (n = 16) that received a 45-minute control session without manipulation [4].
  • As such a randomised-controlled trial was set up to examine the effects of reflexology treatments on COPD [1].
  • In 1979 she trained with Hanne Marquardt in Germany, and in 1981 was asked to develop the British School of Reflex Zone Therapy at the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases in London. Shortly after this, she and Ms. Marquardt established schools of reflex zone therapy in Israel and Barcelona [5].
