Aromatherapy Massage in Palliative Care


A group of London researchers at Marie Curie Cancer Care conducted randomized, controlled, clinical trials to compare the effects of massage alone to massage with essential oils (aromatherapy) on cancer patients in palliative care.


The study randomly assigned 103 patients, to either receive massage using a carrier oil (massage) or massage using a carrier oil plus the Roman chamomile essential oil (aromatherapy massage). Outcome measurements included the Rotterdam Symptom Checklist (RSCL), the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and a semi-structured questionnaire, administered 2 weeks postmassage, to explore patients' perceptions of massage. The study found all massage to be helpful. There was a statistically significant reduction in anxiety after each massage on the STAI (P < 0.001), and improved scores on the RSCL: psychological (P < 0.001), quality of life (P < 0.01), severe physical (P < 0.05), and severe psychological (P < 0.05) subscales for the combined aromatherapy and massage group. The aromatherapy group's scores improved on all RSCL subscales at the 1% level of significance or better, except for severely restricted activities. The massage group's scores improved on four RSCL subscales but these improvements did not reach statistical significance. The study concludes that massage, with or without essential oils, appears to reduce levels of anxiety. The addition of Roman chamomile oil seems to enhance the effect of massage and to improve physical and psychological symptoms, as well as overall quality of life.

The intention is to manipulate the body's energy flows in a way that she is a healthier balance and removes any blockages. Although this seems to be a rather new medical and psychological technique, in many ways it's based upon or influenced by ancient Eastern traditions involving chakras and energy meridians. There are several specific techniques that come under the heading of energy healing. This includes Therapeutic Touch,...

An Extraordinary Life is an Option

Do you choose to be ordinary? Of course, we admire heroes in life whether they are military figures, scholars, business people, scientists, or even athletes. What is amazing is that each and every one of those that we look up to have the same 3 pound brain, arms, legs, etc that we have. On top of that, some of the most amazing feats have been accomplished by people with one more disabilities. So, what is your excuse for not being brilliant? I assure you that it probably is weak. In fact, in each and every one of us have inside us a genius and a hero waiting to come out.

However, despite numerous coaches, counselors, therapists, and social workers being readily available, too often this only results in information overload and inaction. This is true both regarding people who need formal clinical assistance in order to address some type moderate to severe mental health concern and for those who would benefit from just a little coaching and understanding.
