Thank you to the burn survivors and massage therapists that made the Myofascial Scar Release for Burn Scars workshop a success and a rewarding experience for all! You've all motivated me to keep working to bring massage to ALL burn survivors. My mission:
1) get more research on massage& burns
2) get insurance to pay for massage for burn survivors
3) get massage into the hospitals for burn patients. They shouldn't have to wait months or even years to start
Research has shown that massage can help decrease pain & itching, increase range of motion, decrease depression & anxiety, & enhance mood.
