Jesse Kingsbury has come on board. He is a Myotherapist and has learned about CF, is being mentored by Brenda Button from the Alfred.
The benefits of massage for those with CF has been widely accepted however no formal studies have been done for this.
Benefits include release of muscle tension around the neck, shoulders and back and thoracic area caused by coughing. This leads to better posture, increased ability to exersize and can prevent the hunched back posture that older people with CF are known for.
I hope you can take advantage of this service.
Jesse has proposed to do some research studies as part of this service. Please find attached his flyer and a reimbursement form.
