THERKLESON, Tessa. A phenomenological study of ginger compress therapy for people with osteoarthritis. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 2079-7222.  http://dx.doi.org/10.2989/ipjp.2010.10.1.6.1078.

This paper claims rigour and sensitivity for a methodology used to explore multiple sources of data and expose the essential characteristics of a phenomenon in the human sciences. A descriptive phenomenological methodology was applied in a study of the experience of ten people with osteoarthritis receiving ginger compress therapy. The application of the phenomenological attitude, with reduction, bracketing and imaginative variation, allowed multiple sources of data -written, pictorial and oral - to be explicated. The applied methodology used is described in this paper, with its six clearly defined steps illustrated by examples from the study. The findings demonstrate that phenomenological reduction enabled an indication of the potential benefits of ginger compress treatment as a therapy for people with osteoarthritis.
