My mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's just about five years ago. No surprise, but she gets stiff and her body doesn't move as it once did and she gets frustrated! She also has a significant amount of pain with her Parkinson's. My dad got busy learning massage therapy techniques. He studied under a Massage Therapist from Australia (on line) while working a full time job. He went to school to become a licensed Massage Therapist in the state of NH. (He just turned 69).
The result? It has helped my mom tremendously! And now that my dad has retired from his job, he has opened up his practice. He is specializing in working with those who have Parkinson's. His work is relieving symptoms, increasing mobility and flexibility. To have someone enter his office with a walker and leaving his office carrying the walker.....that says it all!
If you are in NH and would like his contact information, please let me know and I will gladly give it to you.
