My dad had a stroke about 3 months ago. He lost most use of left side. He has gotten back 50% of leg, speech has improved, but has all feeling in left arm but no use. What techniques can i use to help him? thanks
Cranio sacral is a great option for stroke. Just check with the doctor. I've worked with several stroke patients, specifically with arm problems and they had positive response after several sessions. Energy work in general is often good as is MFR which I see you are trained in. I believe the Upledger Institute might have some research on CST and stroke as well if you visit their website.
