Dear Riccimagic:  I have seen absolutely amazing healings occur when stroke patients are treated with the Bradley Method bodywork.  I worked for and with a Network Chiropractor in Auburn, CA owned by Dr. Dale Powers, D.C., and in a Massage Studio/Spa called Pathways to Health.  One of our clients had had a stroke and had a 90% contracture of her right arm.  She had, when she met us, very, very little use of the arm, and almost no use of her hand.  Before the stroke, her right arm/hand had been her dominant hand.  After working with Jody, one of the owners of Pathways to Health, who was trained and certified in the Bradley Method, she had almost full use of her arm back within less than six months.  I cannot promise the same things would happen for your mother, but it would do no harm whatsoever to try.

ricci - this is so touching - please keep posting on behalf of your mom; pics of her drawings. You might like to try other papers with her that are a bit more sensitive to the touch. tissue that we use in workshops, or something like the rag vellum I sell. You might find a tracing bond or vellum at an art supply store. And any rice paper would be beautiful. And show her how if she tips her fingers a bit more, she can make fine lines with her fingernails. it would be good for her to be able to really keep refining this as her new art form; empowering her artist self to keep going with it. She might be very inspired by someone on this site name Irv Knowlen. He has Parkinsons and is flying with his creativity through Touch Drawing. He has posted so many drawings on his photo pages. I am sure he would love to receive a comment from you. His page is
