Australian’s with cidp

    • December 4, 2020 at 8:44 am

      I was wondering if anyone with cidp from Australia has heard of a company called Niagra? They sell hand held massage units/pads which use cycloid vibration therapy. I have an old one from the 80’s as my grandmother use to work for them in the US. I cant imaging the motor has much life left to it. Unfortunately they don’t sell them in the states anymore. I was going to try to see if it offers any relief, but don’t want to make things worse either. Was wondering if anyone from Australia has tried using this?

      Hi Mike
      I live in Australia.
      I never used it.
      I had a look online and can see that they still sell here, I am sure you can find it on Google. I believe it is all made in China and that you may be able to source cheaper alternatives branded differently.
      My own experience with massage:
      Getting a general massage or even foot rub aggravates my nerves to the extend that I suffer for weeks until it calms down again.
      Proceed with caution. Personally I would not use it but perhaps you need to make your own experience.
      One thing that helps is to see an Osteopath or a good remedial massage therapist (not for a general massage) to whom you tell what your issue is and they can pinpoint where to touch and apply pressure to certain points, stretch, massage or align. This recently helped me to recover from a very grim situation to a point where I see hope, light and positive change.
