Parkinson’s Disease

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.

  • Attenuation of nerve damage
  • Reduction in sensitivity to pain and stress
