Young-Eun Park, Soon-Nim Chae, Chung-Hwa Chin
Moderners' life style has produced environment enough to cause abdominal obesity due to exercise lacking. So desirable thing is to make a practice plan fit it with life pattern. This study would come up with information based on more systematic and rational treatment method in abdominal obesity. To improve abdominal obesity as the research goal, the paper presented two soft treatments not accompanying high pressure or pain. That it, it tried to compare the effects of abdominal massage by Body Master known as effective in cellulite obesity, and French Doctor, Joe Daniac's plat termi effective for internal obesity. The subjects' age ranged from 20 to 23, of them, 6 women currently or likely to be obese in their abdomen were sampled out. Each 3 of them were subjected to the massage of abdominal massage and Body Master. The research period was total 8 times every three times per week from may 29 to Jun. 16, 2006. Using a weighing machine and a tape measure, weight and the upper parts of 5cm, 10cm, 5cm, 10cm based on the navel were measured. The research results using manually operated massage machine and decompression machine are as follows. It was found that the reduction magnitude of general abdominal circumferential value was higher in the test group by decompression machine than by manual massage. Also it was found that size average was slowly reducing in manual massage group, while that was resistantly reducing in the decompression machine. But there was no special effect by parts in both massage experimental group and decompression machine group. It was found that physical fat ratio was reduced in a great magnitude in both massage experimental group and decompression machine group. Hereby it is thought to be effective in reducing physical fat ratio in both experimental groups of manual massage and decompression massage, and more effective to abdominal obesity in decompression machine management than manual massage.
