Abstract

温泉保養地において,天然温泉入浴並びにさら湯入浴対照実験を行い,天然温泉水がもたらすストレス軽減効果を検討した.実験期間は 2004 年 11~12 月,被験者は 57~67 歳の健常な女性 8 名であった.両実験ともに全身入浴用ポリウレタン製の袋に 40℃の天然温泉水,またはさら湯を満たして温泉の浴槽に入れ,水質のみが異なり他の環境条件を同一にした.被験者に入浴を 10 分間,出浴後は 28–29℃で 30 分間半臥位での安静をとらせた.天然温泉入浴の結果,入浴中に脳波感性スペクトルの「喜び」,「Comfortable」,「Good Mood」値が上昇し,心地よい感情の高まりを示し,出浴後の「リラックス感(MCL)」はさら湯入浴に比べて高い傾向であった.出浴後の平均皮膚温変化を比較すると,天然温泉入浴はさら湯入浴に比べて保温効果が高かった.天然温泉入浴はさら湯入浴よりも感情改善,保温,ストレス軽減効果が大きいと考えられる.<br>

At a spa resort, we carried out experiments to investigate the effects of hot spring bathing on stress reduction and relaxation, compared with the effects of plain water bathing. The experiments were conducted from November to December 2004. The subjects were eight healthy women from 57 to 67 years of age. They bathed for 10 minutes in two water conditions, i.e. hot spring water and plain water at 40°C, in a polyurethane bathing bag that was placed in a 40°C hot spring bath. After bathing, they rested in a supine position on a chair in a room at 28–29°C for 30 minutes. During hot spring bathing, the mean “Pleasure”, “Comfortable” and “Good Mood” score on the Emotion Spectrum of EEG significantly increased and the “Relax” score on the Mood Check List increased after bathing compared with those scores after plain water bathing. The mean skin temperature was higher after hot spring bathing than after plain water bathing. It is considered that hot spring water bathing promoted a pleasant feeling, maintained warmth and reduced psychological stress more than plain water bathing did.<br>
