The Effect of Massage Therapy Method, Inventory Levels and Stress Levels on Kinase Creatine Levels
The aim of this research is to explain the effect of massage effriction therapy and frirage therapy in helping
creatine kinase levels in patients who have experienced injuries I and II with high and low stress levels. The
method in this research is quasi-experimental with factorials. The treatments are effriction massage therapy
and frirage massage. The two types of therapy that are used are a combination of the two massage method.
Effriction massage is massage therapy that is dominated by efflurage and there is pressure to deep tissue.
Frirage massage is a massage therapy that is dominated by the thumb and moves to grind but not deep
due to scouring combined with efflurage. Both types of therapy are used in this study to obtain maximum
results in lowering creatine kinase levels. Effriction therapy and frirage therapy were intervened with a
duration of 15 minutes with the criteria for the sample who had level I and grade II injuries, and high and
low stress levels. physical assessment test instruments for grade I and grade II injuries by looking at the
results of the MRI lab, CT scan or by using a drower test. For the stress level, the instrument used is DASS
to determine the level of stress. To measure creatine kinase levels by laboratory tests in collaboration with
the pharmaceutical chemistry laboratory in Semarang. The conclusion of this study is that effriction massage
therapy and frirage massage therapy can reduce creatine kinase so that it can be used for the therapy of grade
I and grade II injuries, high and low stress levels, especially effriction massage therapy as a therapy that
has better effectiveness than frirage in reducing creatine levels kinase for cases of knee injury, because one
group in the effriction group experienced a significant reduction Keywords: Massage Therapy, Injury Level,
