This first-of-a-kind book based on the author’s experience outlines a comprehensive program specifically geared to those with Parkinson’s disease. This book is unique because it covers a wide range of movement therapies such as range of motion exercises, low to no-impact aerobics, strength training, yoga, and meditation. All of these techniques are specifically geared to, and have been proven helpful for, those with Parkinson’s disease. The exercises are all explained in detail utilizing safe body mechanics and are illustrated in standing, standing holding onto a chair, and seated variations to accommodate a wide variety of abilities. This complete wellness program goes beyond the traditional exercise book offering information on home safety, fall prevention, activities of daily living, and body mechanics (including how to get up from the floor) as well as facial and voice projection exercises. Each chapter includes explanations on how each movement technique physiologically affects the body and how they specifically help those with Parkinson’s disease. The strength training chapter also includes simple muscle diagrams to educate readers about which muscle group(s) they are targeting. This book also provides information on stress management and provides instruction in four different relaxation/meditation techniques. If you are looking for a complete program to help you manage your symptoms and enhance your quality of life, then this book is for you.
