目前台灣勞工肩部痠痛問題日益嚴重，幾乎將近一半的勞工有肩頸部疼痛的問題，但就醫者卻很少，而推拿中使中藥藥酒或是近幾年興起的芳香療法，都是目前大部分人用以解決肩頸部不適問題的方法。本研究探討運用岩蘭草精油按摩與當歸精油按摩，對於銀行員工肩頸疼痛按摩成效之比較，採準實驗設計法(quasi-experimental design)，採招募取樣後隨機抽樣方式選定個案。個案來源自某銀行員工，工作性質是長時間於電腦前工作者，且有慢性肩頸部疼痛超過一個月以上。樣本數共93位，分為實驗組I給予岩蘭草精油按摩，計32位；實驗組II給予當歸精油按摩，計31位；對照組則不給予任何處置，計30位。精油按摩介入時間為連續3天，每天1次，每次5分鐘，並進行前測、後測、及後後測問卷施測。 本研究結果發現岩蘭草精油與當歸精油按摩兩者皆有助於銀行員工肩頸疼痛的緩解，具有立即效果及延宕效果，並顯著優於對照組；但兩種精油按摩的效果間並無顯著差異。
