In brief: Massage/Cerebral An.
It is unlikely that massage therapy would "help with" a cerebral aneurysm.
However, if as a result of the massage therapy the patients blood pressure was reduced or the patient was able to modify other risk factors, such as quitting smoking, the risk of aneurysm rupture might be reduced slightly. Always discuss therapies such as this with the physician treating your aneurysm.
