RA
My man is gediagnoseer met RA en gebruik elke dag 'n handvol pille. Ek wil hom graag help en het gesien as ek hom masseer bring dit so bietjie verligting. Ek wil net graag weet is daar spesiale olies wat ek kan gebruik en hoe kan ek die hande masseer sonder om hom baie seer te maak?

Hi Gina
when it comes to oils, you need to choose something that both you and your husband are comfortable with. There is of course a lot of things you can do. My suggestion would be that you try and give him a massage where you work on the front of his body, he should find a huge amounts of improvement from this.
Heat also works wonders with RA, so nice hot bath before a massage will do him the world of good.
