THE STORY:

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist for over 10 years and love it! In this time I have dealt with many clients ranging from spastic to emotional needs. I have also dealt with those whom have a disability such as Parkinson's, Cerebral Palsy, Fibromyalgia, ADHD and ADD.  There is no denying that the world is trying to find alternative means to combat these issues. My goal now that I have obtain a 6 room unit facility is to build a team to focus on chronic and acute issues with these particular diseases. I believe that the first step in rehabilitation is touch, trying to find the balance and having a skilled facility to do such a thing.  Parkinson's is a neuromuscular and central nervous system issue that causes spastic tremors in the muscles, which can be very painful. Fibromyalgia is what we call an umbrella disease, not fully a neurological or a central nerves system issue, but affects the muscular. Cerebral Palsy, this is one that tugs as my niece is a casualty. Cerebral Palsy has no criteria and often strikes at birth with no notice. ADHD and ADD both are behavioral issues. One thing that all of these things have in common, they cause havoc on the muscular and central nervous system.  For all of these conditions they have a blue pill to give you hopes that it will alleviate the symptoms. Those blue pills are, can or may be beneficial, but what about the problem? I want to know if a child with ADHD/ADD was subjected to weekly appointments in a calm environment if it would change their demeanor? If longer strokes verses vigorous strokes are beneficial? Can you lessen the tremors of a Parkinson's patient with frequent massage and additional treatment? Can you prolong the muscular constriction of a Cerebral Palsy patient? Can a Fibromyalgia patient take one less anti-inflammatory with Trigger Point therapy appose to Deep Tissue? These are all questions I'd like to answer, but I need your help. With your charitable donation I will be able to service more chronic/medical issues. This fundraiser will allow me to do outreach programs and reach out to those whom need it most! Sincerely, Full Circle Massage + Body
