This pilot study aims to find the most effective relaxation technique to help mothers who are firstly breastfeeding their infant. Hence, we will evaluate the effects of five different relaxation techniques on physical and psychological changes in Chinese mothers who are firstly breastfeeding their infant. The ultimate aim of this study is to select the most appropriate therapies for breastfeeding mothers to be used in a subsequent trial investigating the impact of relaxation th...
This study is to look at the differences between people who have evidence of abnormal heart relaxation (diastolic dysfunction) on sound wave pictures of the heart (an echocardiogram) compared to those who do not. If you have abnormal relaxation, it can be a cause of shortness of breath or can be present without knowing about it. A condition known as oxidative stress mayb e associated with this abnormal relaxation. This condition occurs when abnormal oxygen injures heart cell...
This study will examine the effectiveness of relaxation training for providing pain relief and improving physical and psychological functioning in youth with physical disabilities due to cerebral palsy.
While the stress response, characterised by an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol, has evolved to ensure the survival of the organism in face of danger, chronic stress due to psychological stressors can be harmful. The opposite of the stress response is the "relaxation response". Mind-body techniques such as meditation, guided imagery and music therapy are thought to induce this response. The relaxation response is characterized as a wakeful hypometabolic stat...
This study will evaluate the relative effectiveness of Relaxation Response (RR) training for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The study will compare RR training to RR training with cognitive behavioral therapy and to a standard RA education program.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether relaxation (autogenic training of Schultz) is effective in treatment for migraine.
The prevalence of dementia is approximately 5-10% in the elderly who are over 65 years of age. In Korea, the prevalence of dementia among elderly people aged 65 and over was 9.18% in 2012, and the number of patients with dementia was estimated to be 540,755 (155,955 for male, 384,800 for female). The number of patients with dementia will be doubled every 20 years until 2050, which is estimated to be 840,000 in 2020, about 1.27 million in 2030, and 2.71 million in 2050. Alzheime...
The overall purpose of the proposed study is to determine whether three short-term stress management interventions along with booster strategies will improve and sustain improvements in psychosocial functioning, quality of life, and somatic health among persons with varying stages of HIV disease. The 10-week group interventions are designed to reduce perceived stress and increase coping effectiveness and include cognitive-behavioral stress management focused on positively livin...
This study investigates the use of new technologies in "biofeedback gaming" and their potential for use as a treatment for stress and anxiety. Biofeedback training is typically accomplished through devices that measure heartrate variability (HRV), galvanic skin response (GSR), or electroencephalogram (EEG). Typically, the use of this equipment requires a practitioner with specialized training in reading and interpreting HRV, GSR, and/or EEG. However, recent advances in technolo...
The purpose of this study is to examine the molecular (nitric oxide) and biochemical (epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisol and ACTH) parameters that are associated with RR elicitation and which may counteract the effects of acute stress in the elderly.
This randomized controlled trial will examine whether behavioral neurocardiac training with heart rate variability biofeedback (BNT) augments reduction in ambulatory daytime and 24-hour SBP, DBP and PP, in comparison to an active control intervention (AC, autogenic relaxation training), among subjects diagnosed with hypertension, and following adjustment for medications. In addition, the independent association between the BNT and AC interventions on vagal-heart rate modulation...
This interventional, randomized controlled study seeks to test the effects of a novel emotional awareness and expression intervention against relaxation training or no intervention for college students with chronic headaches. These two interventions are conceptually quite distinct, as the former seeks to activate and process anger, whereas the latter, more commonly used technique, seeks to suppress or avoid it.
RATIONALE: Stress management techniques such as muscle relaxation, guided imagery, and abdominal breathing may improve quality of life and decrease emotional distress in patients who are undergoing radiation therapy for cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of stress management training in helping cancer patients cope with the emotional distress of radiation therapy.
Previous research has shown that health professionals can experience stress responses during high acuity events such as trauma resuscitations. These stress responses can lead to impaired clinical performance. The goal of this proposed project is to adapt Stress Inoculation Training (SIT) to the healthcare setting. Stress Inoculation Training is a cognitive-behavioural approach to stress management that has proven effective in reducing stress and improving performance in domains...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of Biofeedback-Assisted Relaxation to standard medication treatment improves outcomes for children with a specific type of recurrent abdominal pain (i.e., eosinophilic gastroenteritis).
To compare the effects of two stress reduction techniques, Transcendental Meditation (TM) and Progressive Muscle Relaxation (PMR), on the control of mild hypertension in elderly Blacks with hypertension.
People with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) suffer from dyspnoea, which may be exacerbated by psychological outcomes including anxiety and depression. Previous studies suggest that relaxation techniques may have positive effects on pulmonary rehabilitation. The main aim of this study is to explore both the respiratory and psychological impact of a quick, one-session, relaxation training for people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
This study has three aims: Phase I: Through focus group interviews with expert clinicians, leaders of organizations, and parents with children with special needs, this study aims to identify the psychosocial needs of parents of children with learning disabilities, specifically a) the types of concerns that parents find most difficult and stressful b) areas of concern that lack support and resources, and c) areas of need for education and skill training. This study also a...
The purpose of this study is to test the active components of mindfulness meditation for reducing psychological stress and improving biomarkers of health. The investigators predict that explicit instruction in both present-moment attention and mindful acceptance drive reductions in stress and stress-related inflammatory biomarkers, as compared to training in present-focused attention only and compared to an active psychological training with no mindfulness content.
