Massage Therapy and Weight Management
Nutrition and Exercise Sciences
Mark Blegen, Associate Professor of Exercise and Sports Science, received a $30,000 grant from the Massage Therapy Foundation to conduct a study to determine whether weekly massage therapy, in conjunction with structured and monitored exercise, influences weight management. Research that explores more effective weight management strategies is critical to turning the tide on the obesity epidemic. This project involves students in collaborative research.
