Even if you haven't picked up a paint brush since grade school, experts at Parkinson's Foundation say Art Therapy can improve physical, psychological and social functioning. Research indicates a multidisciplinary approach to PD care is the best way to encourage the body and brain to realign and recalibrate for better quality of life. Symptoms reported to improve with art therapy include tremors, especially those caused by fatigue, intense emotions, and stress; freezing and the temporary or involuntary ability to move; and isolation and depression, since our classes provide a community of support for you and your caregiver.
