How to Apply Using Aromatherapy Massage to Relieve Geriatric Constipation

CE Institute LLC has evolved to an evidence-based massage instructional school. We teach from proven medical methods and research, when it is available.

In this short video which is publicly available on YouTube, we provide an instructor demonstration of how to provide aromatherapy massage to relieve constipation in the elderly, as demonstrated in the 2005 research study titled:  Effect of aromatherapy massage for the relief of constipation in the elderly

Please keep in mind that this research study was translated to English from a foreign language, so the hands-on practice of the researched intervention is lose (not exact) translation of the manual protocol.

The study uses lemon, peppermint and rosemary essential oils for the abdominal massage, which can also be called belly massage or tummy massage.
