CEA UGARTE, José Ignacio; GONZALEZ-PINTO ARRILLAGA, Asunción  and  CABO GONZALEZ, Olga M.ª. Voluntary management breathing and stress reduction in 55 to 65 year old persons: pilot study. Gerokomos [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.1, pp.18-22. ISSN 1134-928X.

This study evaluated the differential efficacy of the voluntary management breathing therapy, in decreasing anxiety and stress in a population with ages between 55 and 65 years. 54 subjects were randomly assigned to a treatment group, an information group and a no-intervention group. An experimental design with repeated measures for evaluation was used (pre-treatment and post-treatment). After 3 weeks, the experimental group presented a lower stress symptomatology. The intragroup variability and the short number of sessions could explain that significant intergrupal differences were not found.

Keywords : Voluntary management breathing therapy; stress.
