I have definite MS and I've been getting regular therapeutic massages for the last 2 or 3 years. It's great! My therapist has been a professional for years and adapts her procedures according to my day's complaints and also what she feels in my body (& mood) during the massage. My muscles & nerves talk to her.
I hesitate to give her too much guidance beforehand, because she's so good at zeroing in on the right spots (both mental & physical), even if I didn't realize them beforehand.
She has several MS clients, but thinks my body shows more similarites with her Fibromyalgia clients, likely because of my multiple medical conditions. And her years of training and experience have made her so knowledgeable about anatomy that she's been able to identify the muscles/nerves in my areas of complaint and make a few exercise suggestions.
I always walk better when I leave, so I often just leave my cane in the car.
Good luck with your studies and feel free to ask away!
