Do you need any massage fill-work up in the Riverdale area? My mom had breast surgery and then had both her knees replaced. She has a physical therapist and some care-giver coming in but I was wondering if she would benefit from massage at all. She's in her 80's.

hi howie,

My studio is in Park Slope, so I don't think she's going to want to commute for over an hour! :) Massage is usually pretty helpful as long as the practitioner is mindful of the contraindications related to the breast surgery and knee work. People in the hospital often receive reflexology or footrubs since the feet are relatively IV free and such. So even a 15 min foot rub goes a long way. You might want to ask her she would be interested. In my experience, PT's can sometimes do okay with hands and feet, but it depends. They are trained to manipulate, not to touch. There's a big difference.

Thanks for the quick response. She really can't do any travelling yet. Her BIG STEP FORWARD the other day was when she actually crossed the street on her own and went to the pizza place on the corner. I told her that her goal should be to visit every restaurant on 238th street until she hits Greystone Ave. It's about a 20-degree incline :). She already is having PT work done with the people who come in from NY Prebyterian and she has a caregiver at least a few days a week. I wasn't sure if massaging would be a help or not. I wasn't even sure if you were going to be up around there on your way to Dave's. I thought it was worth a try to see what you thought.

Thank you very much for the info.
