Prior to 2008, I had massage/reflexology to mitigate the harsh side effects of the HIV medication (such as peripheral neuropathy). It helped tremendously. When I had a stroke in 2008, my therapist began work to restore lost function in my left side. Work on my spine to restore balance lost due to paralysis on my left hand body. Without this I am sure I would not have been able to recover so much function in my body. Over the years the therapies offered at HART have helped both physically and mentally to give relief with the many and various problems that occur with all cases of long term HIV illness.
