The effectiveness of restorative massage in cerebral palsy

Features of the procedure
Such a disease greatly limits the patient’s capabilities.

This makes it possible to otherwise solve certain problems associated with body control, which patients cannot solve in the traditional way. With the help of competent acupressure, a specialist stimulates specific nerve endings, activating their normal work.
Such procedures are carried out both in the doctor’s office and at home. But in order to avoid improper exposure in the latter case, rehabilitation massage courses for cerebral palsy should be taken. This will allow you to effectively deal with pathology in the most comfortable environment.

increase of protective functions of the body and activation of the immune system;
improvement of the patient’s condition;
activation of the process of cell division in the brain;
increase in muscle strength;
activation of hormones and immune cells;
removal of toxic elements from the body.
