Calls For… Volunteers Needed for Sleep Research Study

Study Subject: Effectiveness of Hand Self-Shiatsu for Post Sport-related Concussion Sleep Disturbance in Young Athletes

- Have you had a sports-related concussion (brain injury) in the last 6 months?
- Are you 18–25 years old?
- Do you have sleep problems and want to improve sleep?

If so, we invite you to take part in a study to determine if hand self-Shiatsu can help improve your sleep. Shiatsu is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine related to pressure points and has similarities to acupressure. It involves applying firm, but not painful, thumb and finger pressure to specific points on each hand. It is easy to learn and interesting!

You may:
- Receive free training in hand self-Shiatsu
- Receive a copy of the final report about the study.

Professor Cary Brown ( and MSc student Pei Qin ( in the Department of Occupational Therapy, Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine are conducting this study.
