Rhythmical massage improves autonomic nervous system function: a single-blind randomised controlled trial. Rhythmical massage therapy (RMT) is a massage technique used in anthroposophic medicine.The authors aimed to investigate the physiological action of RMT on the cardiovascular system by analysing heart rate variability (HRV).This study was a randomised, controlled and single-blinded trial, involving 44 healthy women (mean age: (26.20 ± 4.71) years). The subjects were randomised to one (...) of three arms: RMT with aromatic oil (RA), RMT without aromatic oil (RM) or standardised sham massage (SM). In the study the subjects were exposed to a standardised stress situation followed by one of the study techniques and Holter electrocardiograms (ECGs) were recorded for 24 h.HRV parameters were calculated from linear (time and frequency domain) and nonlinear dynamics (symbolic dynamics, Poincare plot analysis) of the 24-h Holter ECG records.Short- and long-term effects of massage on autonomic

170. The effect of rolling massage on the excitability of the corticospinal pathway. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The effect of rolling massage on the excitability of the corticospinal pathway. The aim of the present study was to investigate the alterations of corticospinal excitability (motor evoked potential, MEP) and inhibition (silent period, SP) following rolling massage of the quadriceps muscles. Transcranial magnetic and femoral nerve electrical stimuli were used to elicit MEPs and compound muscle action potential (Mmax) in the vastus lateralis and vastus medialis muscles prior to and following (...) either (i) 4 sets of 90-s rolling massage (ROLLING) or (ii) rest (CONTROL). One series of neuromuscular evaluations, performed after each set of ROLLING or CONTROL, included 3 MEPs and 1 Mmax elicited every 4 s during 15-s submaximal contractions at 10% (experiment 1, n = 16) and 50% (experiment 2, n = 10) of maximal voluntary knee extensions (MVC). The MEP/Mmax ratio and electromyographic activity recorded from vastus lateralis at 10% MVC demonstrated significantly lower values during ROLLING than

171. Effects of point massage of liver and stomach channel combined with pith and trotter soup on postpartum lactation start time. (Abstract)

Effects of point massage of liver and stomach channel combined with pith and trotter soup on postpartum lactation start time. Delay in lactation initiation causes maternal anxiety and subsequent adverse impact on maternal exclusive breast feeding. It is important to explore a safe and convenient way to promote lactation initiation. The feasibility of point massage of liver and stomach channel combined with pith and trotter soup on prevention of delayed lactation initiation was investigated (...) in the present study. 320 women were enrolled and randomly divided into four groups, control group (80 women), point massage group (80 women), pith and trotter soup group (80 women), and massage + soup group (80 women) to compare the lactation initiation time. We found that women in point massage group, pith and trotter soup group and massage + soup group had earlier initiation of lactation compared with control group. Women in massage + soup group had the earliest initiation time of lactation. There were

177. The Effects of Massage by Mothers on Mother-Infant Attachment. (Abstract)

The Effects of Massage by Mothers on Mother-Infant Attachment. Context • Transferring a newborn to the intensive care unit due to a premature birth is a major obstacle in the establishment of emotional attachment between a mother and her child. Researchers believe that the formation and continuation of such an attachment have a profound effect on the child's mental development and behavior in the coming years of life. Not all studies have agreed, however, that skin contact alone (...) , such as massage provides, can improve attachment. Objective • The aim of this study was to determine the effects on maternal attachment behaviors of infants hospitalized in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) of massage provided by mothers for their premature neonates. Design • The research team designed a randomized, controlled trial. Setting • The study took place at the Hazrat Ali Asghar Hospital of the Iran University of Medical Sciences (Tehran, Iran). Participants • Participants were 40 mothers and 40
