It's 'NAP' time...(Neuropathy Alleviation Program)

This is a video produced by AIDS Help, a non-profit community-based organization which provides case-managed health care, housing, food, counselling, referral and support services for HIV-infected residents of Monroe County (The Florida Keys). It is promoting a massage-based treatment for neuropathy and doesn't claim to heal the condition, or remove all the pain but just to improve discomfort and pain for neuropathy patients. It all makes sense to me and although you may think that this is something friends and/or family could do,I'm glad they advise doing this under doctor's control. Incorrect massage or acupressure can easily do more harm than good - it's important to be treated by someone who knows what they are doing. Finding that person, or physiotherapy another matter! Maybe your local HIV organisation or support group can help.
