Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative condition which is typified by symptoms of rigidity, slowness of movement, tremor and loss of balance.
Many of those who suffer with Parkinson’s report positive personal experience of complementary therapies, including Joshua’s three key disciplines of acupuncture, homeopathy and Alexander Technique which focus on how the disease is affecting the person as a whole, not just their medical symptoms.
Parkinson’s UK encourages anyone affected by the condition to explore what works for them. They also stress that you should talk to your GP, specialist or Parkinson’s nurse before embarking on any complementary therapy.
Carers, spouses and family too, of course, might be feeling the strain of caring for a loved one with Parkinson’s and they too can benefit from treatment.
My clients say...
“I began to have acupuncture with Joshua to improve my chances of conceiving. From the outset, he made me feel very relaxed and comfortable and that, in combination with the weekly treatment sessions, I felt a lot calmer and my blood pressure started to come down. I always felt I could share my concerns with him…
“Although Mr Enkin is a practitioner of many years standing, he continues to study the healing arts widely. This gives him the ability to assess quickly and accurately the needs of his patients at whatever level of life situation.”
“After crippling back pain and subsequent surgery, I have been helped back to absolutely normal function, health and happiness with the support and treatment I have received with Joshua. It is difficult to imagine now how things were back then – a testament to his care.”
“A wonderful therapist who treated me with so much compassion and care throughout many IVF struggles and success. Joshua made me feel completely at ease from my initial consultation and the whole way through my treatment. I could not recommend him highly enough. A fountain of knowledge and experience.”
