Parkinson’s UK wellbeing day aims to aid affected

Categories: Active Sussex News Health & Wellbeing Uncategorized

Parkinson’s UK invites people in Brighton and Hove to join a wellbeing day to experience new activities and therapies to improve overall wellbeing.

The free event, is for anyone in the area who is affected by Parkinson’s, or is interested in learning more about the condition. Local people can try therapies including reflexology and massage or join a mindfulness, dance or drumming session.

Janine Starling, Area Development Manager of Parkinson’s UK, said: "Every hour two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s, but at the moment there is no cure. There are 19,806 people living with the condition in the South East.

"This event is a great opportunity to explore new activities and complementary therapies that are available locally. We know that having Parkinson’s, or being newly diagnosed, can be challenging but there’s no need to face Parkinson’s alone.

"This event is designed to help you decide which complementary therapies, if any, are right for you."
