Effect of Massage Therapy on Aggression in a Psychiatric Inpatient Unit
The Evaluation of Relaxation Massage Therapy as an Intervention Treatment for Reducing the Level of Arousal and Aggression on a Young Adult Psychiatric Inpatient Unit

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether relaxation massage therapy is effective in reducing the levels of arousal and aggression on a young adult inpatient unit. It is hypothesised that relaxation massage therapy will lead to a lower incidence of violence and aggression on the ward via a reduction in the level of arousal and anxiety among inpatients.
