GONCHAROV, Russia researched the clinical efficacy of aromatic oils for massage in children.



Clinical efficacy of aromatic oils for massage were studied in 31 children with consequences of perinatal hypoxic impairment of the central nervous system.


It was found that aromatic oils should be applied individually, depending on the CNS lesion. Aromatic oils for massage promoted faster normalization of clinical status and functional activity of mitochondria of peripheral blood lymphocytes assessed by the enzymes SDG and alpha-GPDG. The response depends on initial activity of the enzymes before the treatment.


Thus, it is demonstrated that enzymatic status of blood lymphocytes may help in choice of the kind of aromatic oil for massage; the dynamics of the enzymes is the criterion of the child's response to oil application.
