In brief: I think worthwhile

Chances are on your side.
Anxiety, understandably, is a significant issue that accompanies a diagnosis of a brain aneurysm. You should continue to do most activities you are used to, including exercise but with gradual warmup. Please refer to the brain aneurysm center for women at www.Chicagoaneurysm.Com for additional helpful information that might be of interest to you.

In brief: Yes

For muscle cramps and spasms yes.
Obviously, massage cannot undo the brain damage which occurred when the aneurysm ruptured. Any person with a brain aneurysm needs close neurosurgery followup and after a rupture, good rehab and physiatry evaluation.

In brief: No

It does not help for aneurysm but may help a little for headache but is not advisable.
