A significant reduction (p<0.05) in the psychological
states of dizziness, sorrow and in the physical states
of restriction of life quality, as well as the feeling of
stiffness and physical suffering were indicated.
The parameters of the follow-up questionnaire relating
to physical condition, general pain, feelings of stress,
metabolism, mood change and feelings of general
energy improved and stabilised to the average of 40%
to 60% four weeks after the self-treatment.

and physiological states, using a modified
mind-body questionnaire including the Proof
of Mood States (POMS), were selected before
and after the three weeks of self-treatment. The

stiffness, mobility, flexibility, coordination, stress
behaviour and changes in mood.

were to evaluate and to determine a change in
psycho-physiological states of the participants in
the parameters physical condition, general pain,
feelings of stress, circulation, metabolism, mood
change, as well as feelings of general energy.
Statistical analysis included the paired t-test, Wilco-
xon signed rank test and Cohen’s d-test.
