Abstract: A randomized placebo controlled study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of massage with Roghan Seer  (a polyherbal Unani formulation), in motor recovery in Hemiplegia secondary to ischaemic stroke. Forty patients of ischaemic stroke diagnosed radiologically, presenting with hemiplegia (Falije Nisfi) were randomly allocated to Group A (test) and Group B (control); comprising 20 patients each. Patients in Group A were massaged with Roghan Seer whereas patients in Group B were massaged with white petroleum jelly. The study reveals that there was significant improvement in voluntary movements of lower limb (p<0.05) and basic mobility (p<0.05) in Group A as compared to Group B. There was no significant improvement in voluntary movements of upper limb in both Group A and B (p>0.05).
