Assessments of the participants were done at the beginning and the end of the treatment period. Fatigue was measured through the Piper Fatigue Scale while depression was measured through the Chinese counterpart of Beck's Depression Inventory.At the end of the study, participants in the acupressure massage therapy group showed lower levels of perceived fatigue and improved depression scores. Participants from the control group, on the other hand, showed no significant difference in perceived fatigue and in depression scores.The study established the effectiveness of acupressure combined with other massage therapy modalities in alleviating the fatigue and depression of patients suffering from end stage renal disease and going through hemodialysis. They, therefore, recommended that these combined therapies be integrated into the standard care for patients in such conditions. In the words of Yi-Ching Cho, R.N. and Shiow-Luan Tsay, R.N., Ph.D., 'Assessment of end-stage renal disease patients' fatigue and depression should be an essential part of nursing practice, and clinicians may consider providing acupressure therapy as a method for improving dialysis patients' fatigue.'Patients with end stage renal disease who are undergoing hemodialysis may be brought to licensed massage therapists (LMT) for acupressure massage therapy. A reliable and experienced licensed massage therapist is expected to have expertise not only in acupressure massage therapy but also reflexology massage therapy, shiatsu massage therapy, craniosacral massage therapy, deep tissue massage therapy, sports massage therapy and pregnancy massage therapy. Since LMTs often treat people who have been hurt in auto accidents, an LMT usually also does insurance billing for people in auto accidents.David Jacob LMT - Licensed Massage TherapistDavid Jacob5406 SE 45th AvePortland, OR 97206Phone: 503-522-5550Email: pdxmassage@live.comWebsite:
