I have a friend who is a qualified masseuse and we have spoken about massage to relieve the tightness in my muscles from the cramping and spasms.

She is a bit concerned about doing it without getting the go ahead from the neurologist, but I wont have a neurologist appointment for a few weeks. Has anyone used massage with PD and did you consult your neurologist first?

Hello Mark

My OH regularly has massage from a sports therapist.  Been doing this for about 8 years and never thought to ask neurologist`s permission.  He now has a regular appointment every 3 months and wouldn`t be without it.

From our experience you should expect more frequent treatments at first and then as the `historic` tightness is addressed you might need them less often.

Hope you get lots of relief.
