06-22 Massage Therapy

A family friend back in Texas is a massage therapist, and after talking to my mother about me yesterday morning recommended that I look into getting massage therapy to help this hole heal.  What she said was that the poor healing can be due to decreased blood flow, which, of course, matches what the doctor said; the blood supply is lowered because the skin was lifted up in a flap, and the blood vessels running up from below were severed.  She also said that the lack of sensation in the area meant that there are no messages coming from the nerves to the brain
