During the treatment the therapist will gently massage head, shoulders, back and feet, which makes the patients more relaxed for the next stage of treatment.
Then the therapist will gently stimulate parts of the body below the head, shoulders, upper and lower back to increase the flow of blood. In this way, the therapist releases tension and facilitates the body’s own natural healing process.
No placebo group, so it will be hard to evaluate the results of this 30 person, three-month study starting in February. I think neck massage, etc, might be beneficial but not a replacement for venoplasty for the very real intraluminal malformations within our veins. Still good to see the worldwide interest in the vascular theory of MS.
