Abstract Sleep is the natural state of rest and that observed throughout the animal kingdom including mammals and birds and, in many reptiles, also amphibians and fish.in humans, other mammals and many other animals that have been studies -such as fish, birds, ants, and fruit-flies- regular sleep in necessary for survival. the capability for arousal from sleep is a protective mechanism and also necessary for health and survival.1 Sleep can also defined that normal state of altered consciousness during time of body rests; it is characterized by decreased responsiveness to the environments, and a person can be aroused from it by external stimuli.1Slow -stroke back massage, uses this slow stroke. Slow Back was introduced within a hospital context by Elizabeth in 1996 as slow, gentle, and rhythmic hand movements on the patients back as the steady speed (about 60 movements per minute), with mild and gentle pressure, for 10 minutes.3Back massage care provided those who are admitted in the Hospitals by using various techniques of back massage like Effleurage, petrissage, friction, tapotement by using these techniques to improvement in the blood flow and also to relieve the deeper muscle tension and clear out toxins.5
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY WERE TO-
1. assess the pre-test and post-test level on quality of sleep of slow back massage among patients admitted in selected government Hospitals, Daman
2. determine the effectiveness of slow back massage on quality of sleep among patients admitted in selected government Hospitals, Daman.
3. find out the association between the pre-test level on quality of sleep among patients with selected demographic variables in patients in selected Government Hospitals, Daman.





METHODOLOGY:
A Quantitative Research approach with pre-experimental, one-group pre-test post- test Research design was adopted for the study. A total 40 sample were selected in Government hospitals, Daman based on selection criteria.in this research study consecutive sampling technique was used.
