Importance of soft massage in nursing : from the recipient's perspective (English)
Abstract [sv]

I omvårdnaden använder sjuksköterskan beröringen dagligen vilken blir en central del för både patienten och sjuksköterskan. Vid sjukdom kan behovet av beröring komma till att öka, därmed får sjuksköterskans beröring större betydelse. Då mjuk massage är ett komplement kan den tillgodose detta behov. Mjuk massage är ett samlingsbegrepp för olika men liknande tekniker, bland annat taktil massage, taktil stimulering, mjuk vävnads massage och beröringsmassage. Syftet med studien var att ur mottagarens perspektiv undersöka betydelsen av mjuk massage i omvårdnaden. En allmän litteraturstudie gjordes baserad på nio vetenskapliga artiklar. Vid analysen av artiklarna framkom två kategorier och sju underkategorier som var: Trygghet: Massageterapeutens betydelse, Att känna sig sedd samt Att känna samhörighet. Vila: Omgivningens betydelse, Att uppleva kroppen som en helhet, Att uppleva lindring av lidande samt Att uppleva kroppslig energi. Resultatet visade att flera olika faktorer påverkade upplevelsen av den mjuka massagen och blev en hjälp i olika situationer. Med ytterligare forskning utifrån mottagarens perspektiv kan det leda till ökad förståelse och ett ökat intresse för hur den på bästa sätt kan användas i vården.

Abstract [en]

In the daily care of the patient, touch is used as an intervention. Therefore, the touch becomes a central part for both the patient and the nurse. In case of illness, the need of touch may increase, and the nurse's touch becomes more important. When soft massage is a complement, it can satisfy this need. Soft massage is a collective term for different but similar techniques, among other tactile massage, tactile stimulation, soft tissue massage and touch massage. The aim of the study was to find out the importance of soft massage in nursing from the recipient's perspective. A general literature study was made based on nine scientific articles. The analysis of the articles emerged two categories and seven subcategories that were: Safety: The importance of the massage therapist, feelings of being seen, and feeling togetherness. Rest: The importance of the surroundings, Experience the body as a whole, To experience relief from suffering, as well as to experience bodily energy. The result showed that several factors influenced the experience of the soft massage and helped in different situations. With further research, based on the recipient's perspective, it can lead to increased understanding and increased interest in how the soft massage can be used in the best possible way in the daily care.
