Abstract: A randomized placebo controlled study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of massage with <i>Roghan Seer  </i>(a polyherbal<i style=""> </i>Unani formulation), in motor recovery in Hemiplegia secondary to ischaemic stroke. Forty patients of ischaemic stroke diagnosed radiologically, presenting with hemiplegia (<i>Falije Nisfi</i>) were randomly allocated to Group A (test) and Group B (control); comprising 20 patients each. Patients in Group A were massaged with <i>Roghan Seer</i> 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).
