STUDY 2 - DOES RELAXATION ON AN ACUPRESSURE MAT INDUCE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS? A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED PILOT STUDY

This study involved 36 participants with long term neck and back tension

This study found significant improvement in peak pain intensity with regular use of acupressure mats. There was also a significant decrease in the number of painful areas the patients had over the 3 weeks they used the mat. Indications were also made that there were improvements in stress, anxiety and depression diminished, and that small increases in optimism and energy were observed.
