CAVERNOUS ANGIOMA AND MASSAGE THERAPY?


  Hello!
  Very quick question.....
  Having been recently diagnosed with a cavernous angioma tumor in the right frontal temporal lobe, I am interested to learn of any opinion regarding returning to massage therapy for my normally "knoted" self. The tumor was revealed following a mild grand mal seizure, and I have since been prescribed 300mg of Dilantin per day to control or prevent further seizures. I have also been given my Neurologists thumbs up to returning to my normal rountine, including work, exercise, etc.
  I would be interested to hear any opinions regarding massage therapy treatment at this time, given the resulting increased blood circulation to the brain and the presence of damaged blood vessels.
  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!      
Dear Barbara,
Massage therapy is not contraindicated after a diagnosis of a cavernous angioma. Good Luck.
