Research has shown that stress and anxiety can exacerbate symptoms of Parkinson’s disease; however, scientific evidence shows that Mindfulness techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga can combat the negative effects of stress and anxiety for everyone. In this 6-week series People with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners will learn basic Mindfulness techniques that can be used in any situation to help decrease stress and anxiety.

Music therapy, an engaging, interactive, goal-focused and fun therapy, has been shown to be an effective tool in improving cognitive, speech, motor, and social skills as well as increasing quality of life for People with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners. At MusicWorx, we offer several music therapy programs for People with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners to meet varying needs and abilities. On top of the many group programs that MusicWorx offers, there are also opportunities to take private harmonica, piano, vocal, guitar, and ukulele lessons that are adapted based on individual learning style, ability, and need.
