Is this safe for people with diabetes?
It is safe and is helpful. However, like every massage movements, or any professions, always remember the saying, “Everything that is overdone is not good.” I used it to many diabetic people and they all like to have it done repeatedly because they felt better afterwards. However, this should not be promised that it will make them regain their eyesight or can do a miracle for them.
My father’s cousin who had diabetes cannot stop talking about my mother who massaged his eyes with the round part of a diaper pin. His eyesight improved for six months and was yearning my mother would have had the time to visit him again. In addition, when I gave him eye massage two years after, he said his eyesight improved, and made a schedule to have my service. But, of course that did not make him better because the cause of his eye problem was his diabetes.
So far, everyone likes the result of this massage… but, to get the full benefits of the treatment, one should learn it for personal use to have it handy at all times.
