2-day Parkinson’s Regeneration Training

These workshops on 1st & 2nd June 2019 are designed to CHANGE LIVES for those living with Parkinson’s Disease!

While Parkinson’s Disease (PD) can be debilitating, there is plenty of compelling data to show that exercise is one of the best ways of managing PD symptoms. Studies show that regular exercise can improve gait, grip, balance, stability, strength, and motor control in the PD client.

In addition, this improvement in movement and mobility helps to reduce falls, injuries, and various other complications of the disease in the PD client.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This workshop by Karl Sterling is for all movement professionals, Parkinson’s caregivers, home health aides and also for people living with Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases. Workshop includes hands-on and interactive learning.

If you are a person living with Parkinson’s disease or know someone who does and can benefit from the course, please email me at krisng@bodytreeacademy.com for a special fee.
