How Massage Can Help Someone Who Has Had An Aneurysm

One of my client had a brain aneurysm. From what I have read about aneurysms, they are lucky to be alive. Their antiseizure medication is making their muscles cramp, so they are coming to me with permission from their doctor. They mostly hurt in their hips and legs, to the point where sitting is very uncomfortable.

Based on my usual experience with muscle soreness, I could feel nothing out of the ordinary in their muscles. There were no tension knots, or ropy bands of muscle, or even the spongy softness sometimes associated with fibromyalgia. All I know is that everywhere I worked, my client exclaimed how good the massage strokes felt.

They scheduled another appointment, and I promised to work deeper in their muscles as long as the first massage I did with them did not make them feel worse than they already do.
