The effect of essential oil on heart rate and blood pressure among solus por aqua workers.
Background: Aromatherapy is widely used around the world for stress relief. Whether exposure to essential oil increases the risk of cardiovascular events is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of essential oil on heart rate and blood pressure among solus por aqua (spa) workers. Methods: We recruited 100 healthy workers from various spa centres in Taipei, Taiwan. Between July and August of 2010, three repeated measurements - resting heart rate (HR), systolic blood pressure (SBP), and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) - were taken of each spa worker in our study room. Participants were exposed to essential oil vapour generated from an ultrasonic atomizer in the study room for two consecutive hours. The total volatile organic compound (VOC) level in the study room was measured during the study period. We used a linear mixed-effect model to determine the association between the total VOC level and the participants' HR, SBP, and DBP.Results: For the times from 15 to 60 min after start of exposure, we found that the VOC level was significantly associated with reduced 15-min mean BP and HR. After exposure for more than 1 hour, from 75 to 120 min after start of exposure, we found that the VOC levels were associated with increased 15-min mean BP and HR.Conclusions: Exposure to essential oil for 1 hour was found to be an effective method of relaxation, as indicated by decreases in the HR and BP. Prolonged exposure for longer than 1 hour to essential oils may be harmful to cardiovascular health among spa workers.

Reading comprehension involves a person’s ability to rapidly translate perceptions in to the how and why of meaning. It also refers to their ability to recall information when needed. Hypnosis can help a person significantly improve in both areas.
One of the main obstacles to comprehension – and reading speed as well – is a person’s stress level. In order to comprehend fully, the associated areas of the brain must be activated. However, during a high stress period, this is difficult as problem solving and survival-related areas of the brain are rightfully considered more important. By...
Generally, health services involves both the environment in which a person or community lives in the forms of both preventive and curative services available. Normally, when a person considers the topic of health care more interested in the biological manifestations. However, more and more researchers, practitioners, and health services professionals are becoming aware of the cultural and mental health applications when it comes to physical health. Of course, mental health is an integral concern when it comes to health services.
Just like with cultural values, individual values and...
Fingernail biting is a compulsive behavior that is very often started during a person’s pre-teen or teen years. It is normally a type of defensive reaction that occurs when a young person encounters a threatening situation that they cannot understand. While I’ve seen this occur in situations where there has been a significant stress in the home – to include frequent relocations and abuse – it frequently starts when a seemingly simple event occurs.
One example of this involved a young thirteen year old boy who had been chewing his nails since the age of nine. In this case, the...
