Massage is Good for Dystonia

Although not as common as Parkinsons, dystonia has some of the same symptoms including involuntary  muscle contractions that can occur in any part of the body including an entire muscle group such as the quads, or in small muscle groups such as the eyelids, or vocal cords. Those patients experiencing dystonia in the core and extremity muscles can achieve great relief of their symptoms with good neuromuscular massage.

Because massage increases blood flow to the tissues, and help to repair injury and restore range of motion, it has been used successfully with many different movement disorders.
