“The only therapy recommended by the National Institute for
Health and Clinical Evidence (NICE) is the Alexander technique to
help day-to-day movement for people with Parkinson’s.”
Parkinson’s UK Policy Statement
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition with physical symptoms such as trembling, loss of balance and coordination, and impaired movement as well as feelings of anxiety, depression, pain and insomnia.
Although Alexander Technique a “cure” for symptoms, it can certainly help a Parkinson’s sufferer with speech, tremors, balance and co-ordination, as well as developing a positive attitude and a calmer approach to life. I myself am also able to provide some tips when it comes to reducing insomnia.
Both the NHS and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommend the Alexander Technique as a management tool for dealing with the symptoms of Parkinson’s and improving general quality of life.
I offer a package of lessons for those with Parkinson’s which includes a complementary introductory Alexander Technique lesson.
