Tui-na is a very important component of Chinese medicine. It is a well-respected treatment modality known to be helpful and safe for a wide range of conditions. It can be considered as a certain kind of massage which is performed at acupoints, meridians, and collaterals by pushing, finger twisting, grasping thumb waving pressing, patting, palm twisting, and other manipulation techniques. At present, it is extensively used for relieving pain and stiffness associated with ankylosing spondylitis in China, even though there is a lack of evidence to support its validation and feasibility...

INTRODUCTION: A large heterogeneous group of unproven remedies exist to treat cancer in both developed and developing countries. Some of these remedies often do more harm than good to the patients. The traditional medicine is the sum total of the knowledge, skills, and practices based on the theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures. The traditional medicine in Oman is based on herbal treatment and skin treatment (massage, Cupping and skin burn "cautery" treatment-known as Wasam or Kaiy)...

BACKGROUND: Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) may be characterized by pain and restricted jaw movements. In the absence of somatic factors in the temporomandibular joint, mainly myogenous, psychobiological, and psychosocial factors may be involved in the aetiology of myogenous TMD. An occlusal appliance (splint) is commonly used as a basic therapy of the dental practice. Alternatively, a type of physiotherapy which includes, apart from massage of sore muscles, aspects of cognitive-behavioural therapy might be a basic therapy for myogenous TMD...

: 79 Background: Massage as a manual therapy has shown benefit for symptomatic relief in patients with cancer and their caregivers. We explored the impact of a single massage session on self-reported symptoms in an outpatient clinic at a comprehensive cancer center. METHODS: Patients and caregivers received oncology massage treatments (30 or 60-min duration) at our Integrative Medicine Center outpatient clinic from Sep 2012-Jan 2015. Participants completed a modified Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale (ESAS; 0-10 scale, 10 most severe) pre- and post-massage...

: 191 Background: Distress (DS) levels are usually elevated across the disease course of cancer patients. Massage Therapy (MT) can improve patient-reported DS levels. We characterize the effect of MT on DS prevention and treatment, and compare the outcomes between single and multiple treatment sessions. METHODS: This was a prospective single arm intervention with pre/post assessment using the validated NCCN DS Thermometer for patients on active chemotherapy who agreed to receive at least one MT session over a 10-week period...

Its impact on pain improvement, prevention, and overall quality of life (QoL) is characterized in this study and 2 different pain scales are being compared. METHODS: Patients who were on active chemotherapy and agreed to receive at least one MT session over a 10-week period were included. Wong-Baker Pain scale (WBPS) and Numerical Pain Scale (NPS) were assessed pre and post every session...

: 193 Background: CIPN has a known negative impact on quality of life (QoL) and can be a dose-limiting side effect of cytotoxic drugs with no generally agreed upon therapeutic intervention. In this study MT was assessed as a primary and secondary preventive modality of CIPN symptoms under the hypothesis that it can be used as an effective prophylactic and therapeutic option. METHODS: A single arm 10-week prospective study (n = 62) with pre/post intervention assessment using a validated survey instrument adapted from "Peripheral neuropathy associated with novel therapies […]"...

Most women experience the worse sleep quality of their life during pregnancy and the early postpartum period. Although pregnancy typically accounts for a relatively short part of a woman's life, the related sleep disturbances may have a significant and negative impact on her long-term health. Approximately 78-80% of pregnant women experience sleep disturbances, including interruptions in deep sleep, decreased total sleep time, poor subjective sleep quality, frequent night waking, and reduced sleep efficacy...

PURPOSE: A pharmacist's role in providing care to transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) patients within a medical home model of care is described. SUMMARY: A comprehensive transgender services clinic was established in February 2015 in New Mexico. Clinic services are provided under an "informed consent" model of care, as opposed to the traditional "gatekeeper" approach. The clinic's interprofessional team consists of a clinical pharmacist, a psychiatrist, a nurse practitioner, an endocrinologist, a diabetes educator, a massage therapist, a nurse, a nutritionist, and medical assistants...

OBJECTIVES: Research demonstrates the benefits of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in myriad environments. Yet, the majority of CAM services are offered in outpatient settings. Incorporating CAM into hospital settings may lead to increased patient comfort, well-being, and overall satisfaction with hospital admissions. Few studies have examined CAM services among inpatients. Therefore, this study assessed inpatients' preferences and beliefs regarding CAM, as well as their stated willingness to pay for these services...
