Preschool Children's Sleep and Wake Behavior: Effects of Massage Therapy.
Field, Tiffany; And Others
Early Child Development and Care, v120 p39-43 Jun 1996
Preschool children received twice-weekly massages for five weeks. Compared to control children, the massaged children had better behavior ratings on mood state, vocalization, activity, and cooperation following massage on day one and throughout the study. Teachers rated their behavior more optimally, and their parents rated them as having less touch aversion and being more extroverted. (HTH)
