PARKINSON's: Art of expression - PARTE™

WORKING THE BRAIN DIFFERENTLYLess

WORKING THE BRAIN DIFFERENTLY


The Parkinson's Exercise & Wellness Center now offers Parkinson's: The Art of Expression (PARTE™) classes that engage participants in
theatrical techniques and learn to harness their
creativity. PARTE targets the motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease, accesses the creative centers of the brain, rewires the neuropathways, decreases anxiety, encourages socialization, improves mood & self-confidence and promotes greater mobility & body control.


The Scientific World Journal article by Hindawi states that "theatre could reduce clinical disability and improve the quality of life of PD patients more efficiently than other complementary therapies because (1) in order to impersonate a character, patients are forced to regain the control of their bodies; and (2) while being part of a group, patients have a high degree of social interaction. The need to regain the control of their bodies and their social functioning is very likely to deeply motivate patients."


PARTE™ helps the participant explore movement and emotions via
improvisations, visualizations, vocal exercises,
rhythm, and rhyme. This ground breaking program is only available through the Parkinson's Exercise & Wellness Center.
