The main motive of organizing this camp was to bring some relief to the patients especially the elders who have frequent complaints relating to muscular and joint pains. More than 50 patients have benefitted during the two day camp.
The massage technique used by the Home nurses during the camp is named Clinical Body massage. It is a Japanese technique taught to the home nurse by well know masseur in Japan Mrs. Izumi Egawa. The nurses have been using this technique during the home visits to the sick and elders in and around McLeod Ganj. This is known to bring great relief to the elders, especially those with muscular and joint pains.
We thank Mrs. Izumi Egawa for her personal presence on the first day and we thank Namgyal Monastery for kindly allowing us to use their hall and other facilities related to the camp.
