Review diagnosis: If the regular treatments for parkinson's have not worked, perhaps this is actually one of the parkinson's mimics. I've seen familial tremor misdiagnosed as parkinson's; i've known one man whose job exposed him to toxic levels of manganese who recovered fully when treated for this. There are others. Until we know what this is, i can't recommend the supposedly magic massager.
