[The use of point massage in patients with circulatory encephalopathy]
The comprehensive studies involving rheoencephalography and tetrapolar thoracic rheography made in 120 patients with dyscirculatory encephalopathy (DE) indicated that pointed massage caused a noticeable rearrangement of hemodynamic processes, which depended on the clinical cause of the disease and the baseline status of the circulatory system. This makes it possible to consider pointed massage as a therapeutical factor aimed at correcting cerebral circulation, which is indicated particularly in DE patients having a history of transitory ischemic attacks in the vertebrobasilar bed.
