OBJECTIVE: To summarize the current evidence on the effects and safety of massage therapy for the treatment of ADHD in children and adolescents. METHOD: A systematic review of 8 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and 3 case series studies was conducted with a meta-analysis of 4 of the RCTs. RESULTS: Pooled analysis showed that massage produced more improvement in ADHD symptoms in terms of effective rate compared to Ritalin (risk ratio: 1.39, 95%CI: 1.16-1.66; P=0.0004). Individual RCTs suggested that massage was differed significantly from waitlist control in improving the conditions of anxious-passive (mean difference: -11.7; 95%CI [-17.84, -5.56]; P=0.0002), and asocial behavior (mean difference=-8.60; 95%CI [-15.87, -1.33]; P=0.02). CONCLUSION: Evidence suggests that massage therapy is beneficial for treating ADHD in children and adolescents.
