I met this man at a fancy destination spa. He could barely walk and looked like he wasn't gonna make it much longer. He booked a session with me, but at those destination spas the guests go from one session to another, from one therapist to another, and it is difficult to really get to know a client and establish a relationship.

Several months later he ended up moving to my home town. The medical doctors could not help his Parkinsons disease, and so he decided that he wanted to use massage to help his condition. Luckily he had plenty of money and didn't have to work. 

I worked on him for over two years twice a week with Thai Massage. He also had regular foot massage and abdominal massage sessions from other therapists, and he worked with a personal trainer. 

His condition gradually improved, and two years after he started this massage routine he was a changed man. He could walk easily, swim, exercise, and lead an almost normal life. It was not a 100% cure, but it allowed him to get a new lease on life, and it was a lot more than what the medical doctors had been able, or rather not been able, to do with his Parkinsons.

He swears that all this massage therapy not only kept him out of a wheel chair, but re-started his life again. Not everyone can afford almost daily massage sessions, but in this case he had the money and his improvement was beyond anything that can normally be expected from someone in an advanced stage of Parkinsons.

Great story, Shama!   The rate of auto-immune diseases is definitely on the rise, and to help someone with Parkison's dz with twice weekly sessions x 2 years is a big commitment. I teach yoga to seniors, ages 74-97, and they have their ups and downs with their health. At some point, I hope to offer Thai Massage to them.
