ABSTRACT
The purpose : This study aims to identify the effect of Swedish massage and scalp reflection therapy on micro wrinkles at the outer corners of eyes, melanin index and erythma at the corners of eyes and cheeks. For the study, we compared the conditions of the subjects who had only Swedish massages with those of the subjects who had both the Swedish massage and scalp reflection therapy. The method : We targeted four middle-aged women whose skin was coarse and dry, and had less moist and micro wrinkles and provided both a Swedish massage and a scalp reflection therapy once a week for eight weeks from October 11 to December 4. 2007 for A1 and A2, clinical test groups in a regular basis, focusing on their faces, necks, scalps and decolletee. However, we provided only Swedish massages for the clinical control group, B1 and B2, once a week, focusing on their faces, necks and decolletee. For the scalp reflection therapy, we used fine bamboo poles we designed. To measure wrinkles of the skin, we used objective measuring instruments such as Skin Visiometer (SV600) and Visioscan (VC98) by Courage+Khazaka (C+K electronic GmbH, Cologne, Germany) which measure wrinkles and surface of the skin by a less invasive method, and used Mexameter MX18 (Courage and Khazaka, Germany) to measure melanin index(MI) and Erythma index(EI) with a less invasive method.
Conclusion
: As a result, we found that the test group who had both the Swedish massage and scalp reflection therapy had considerably less wrinkles at the corners of eyes, and showed stable reduction of melanin index and erythma index.
Key words: Scalp reflection therapy, Skin management, Micro wrinkles, Melanin index, Erythma index
