The purpose of this study is to conduct body shape management on women for a certain period of time to determine the structural relationship between the latent variables of life habits, social support, and life satisfaction and the impact on the quality of life. Body shape management was performed with chiropractic adjustments and myofascial relaxation therapy, and a physical therapist with 25 years of experience was used as an expert. The subject of the study was a sample of women in their 20s to 60s residing in Gwangju Metropolitan City, and women who participated in body shape management procedures more than 20 times for the study were asked to fill out a questionnaire using a self-evaluation writing method. The final analysis target was 100 people who made it reasonable to analyze the data. As a result of the study, it was found that the quality of life of women related to health can vary depending on the presence and degree of body shape management. In addition, the degree of life satisfaction varies according to the level of lifestyle and social support, and the direct, indirect, and total effects of the latent variables related to the quality of life were all significant.
In this study, the usual body shape management that can improve the quality of life of women gives meaning to the opportunity for women to have desirable lifestyle and to give them a recognition that values quality of life.
