[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: Health promotion is an important factor for the quality of life of elderly people. Strategies for improving health include various complementary therapies, among which tactile care is a method of effleurage massage using slow stroking and firm pressure. Previous research suggests that the tactile touch decreases patients' anxiety and increases circulatory stability during intensive care but this research did not directly measure its effect on relaxation. This purpose of the present study is to investigate the effects of tactile care on relaxation in Japanese elderly people.
