Hence, this research was undertaken. Randomly selected 100 women intercollegiate players divided into three experimental groups and a control group. Group I as experimented with Music Therapy, Group II with Aromatherapy, group III with combination of music and aromatherapy and control group with no special training. All the subjects were tested prior to and after the training period on selected criterion variables, aggression and stress using standard questionnaires. To test statistical significant, analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used. In all cases, the criterion for statistical significance was set at 0.05 level of confidence (P < 0.05).Whenever the ‘F’ ratio was found to be significant, LSD (Least Significant Difference) test was used as post-hoc test to determine which of the paired means differed significantly. The results proved that isolated music therapy and aromatherapy and combined group were significantly influenced aggression and stress compared to control group. Further it was also found combined group was also found to be better than isolated experimental groups of women players. It was concluded that combined effect of music therapy and aroma therapy found to be superior to isolated treatments, namely music therapy and aroma therapy. Based on these findings it was recommended to incorporate music and aroma therapy to enhance the overall mood of the team as well as to decrease tension and stress within an environment.Pages: 135-140 | 217 Views 41 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
