Can you recommend a massage for people recovering from a Stroke ?

I have read that massage is really good for Stoke victims. Do you agree & if you do agree can you confirm what massage you recommend & if this massage can be done at the persons home?

Give a full body massage in medium & high pressure specially in joints. Learn his or her pain so you can analyse that when his/ her pain is reducing. You can ask the patient aswell. Once you feel that patient is tired now and it's enough for me so finish with head massage starting for high pressure to low.
Then after few hours patient's body will feel the change. If he recover even 1% then that's a good sign.
Must consider about patient's diet aswell, only massage will not cure him/her after care treatment and diet chart and medication is important.

After a stroke the brain has an amazing ability to relearn movement using other neurones or nerve cells. It is called plasticity. Massage improves blood flow through the limbs. However in the long term if you mobilise the limbs and joints at the same time as asking them to visualise them moving, their brain eventually takes over and makes the limb move. Some research shows that by restraining the "good limb" the other limb has to work harder to achieve the task.

I agree, but not in all cases. It depends on when the stroke happened and what was its reason:
When tha patient had the stroke because of big-big stress, massage is OK. But if he/she has narrow blood vessels, high blood pressure, vascular calcification, it depends on the physician! If he allows to do the massage and give a paper, it's OK.
It's better not to make the clients condition worse if it's dangerous.
So ask the physician 1st, pls.
