KC'S ORIGINAL

501(c)(3) Nonprofit Parkinson's-Only Wellness Center

Recent studies suggest that exercise is a physiological tool that guides brain health, protection, repair and adaptation after neurodegeneration occurs. Exercise triggers the plasticity, thus potentially slowing the progression of Parkinson's Disease. The Parkinson's Exercise and Wellness Center is a one-of-a-kind 501(c)(3) nonprofit facility in the greater Kansas City region, dedicated solely to Parkinson's Disease and Parkinson's Plus at any stage and offers an array of exercise therapies to fight back against the symptom of PD. The Certified and experienced coaching staff utilizes Rock Steady Boxing, PWR!Moves, Theatrical Expression, Dance and Rhythm Therapy, Yoga, and Mat Pilates for people with PD and other movement disorders as a complementary therapy to traditional medicine. Our Mission is to provide "exercises for a stronger body, education and resources for a stronger mind, and camaraderie and support for a stronger spirit."
