Effects of Effleurage Technique of Massage on the Electroencephalogram
Im Sil Yoon, Hyun Ju Choi
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of effleurage technique which is used most frequently in massage on electroencephalogram (EEG). The participants were 18 healthy female adults in their twenties. Effleurage technique of massage was applied for 3 minutes during the time period of 3-6 min to 9 participants. Participants in control group (n=9) did not received any massage but they were under the same experimental condition. Score of psychological relax was significantly reduced by the effleurage technique of massage. The EEG was recorded using QEEG 8 System by placing electrodes on frontal, parietal, temporal and occipital lobes on the scalp. EEG was measured for 3 min during the periods of the before (0-3 min), during (3-6 min), and after massage (6-9 min) with effleurage technique. Results show that all the EEG waves did not changed in the control group. However, effleurage technique increased the delta wave (p<.05) and decreased the beta wave (p<.05) in all the frontal, temporal, parietal, and occipital cranial regions. These data suggest that effleurage technique in massage may have positive effects on sleep and relaxation.
