Had brain tumor removed. Can head massager be used everyday?

My mom had a brain tumor removal surgery last year March on lower back left side of the head towards the neck area with one piece of scale (a little larger then a quarter coin) taken out permanently. She recovers really well. Since it has been one and a half years from the surgery, so i wonder if she is in good condition for head massage? Can she use head massager to massage her head everyday as this point? thank you

A head massage will be OK for your mother, everyday will not do any damage. It may help her relax and feel better and should have no side-effects.
