Recent scientific studies have shown that when massaged, stroke survivors experienced increased mobility, decreased pain, decreased depression and as a result used less medication.
Massage provides ten times as much oxygen to the massaged areas as the body would receive passively in 15 minutes.
Circulating blood is the great communicator and supplier of essentials, and as long as blood is freely circulating, there is healing going on.
The day to day quality of a stroke survivor's life may be improved by massage.
Please always speak to your doctor before undergoing massage or similiar therapies.
