Parkinson’s Disease Treatment Program Workshop
A unique, holistic and effective Parkinson’s disease treatment program will be introduced in a workshop by a panel of five practitioners, from noon to 5 p.m., April 29, at the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center. All Parkinson’s patients, their family members and friends, support group leaders, caregivers and neurologists should attend.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative brain disorder that progresses slowly in most people. The U.S. Center for Disease Control rated complications from Parkinson’s disease as the 14th leading cause of death in the U.S. Worldwide, it is estimated four to six million people suffer from the disease. Current conventional treatments with medications and deep-brain stimulator may ease the symptoms but do little to slow the disease progression.
Tucson licensed acupuncturist Steve Liu, of HanLing Acupuncture Healing Center, has developed an innovative and integrative approach to help slow or possibly even arrest the disease progression by combining evidence-based modalities including neuro-acupuncture, transcranial and intranasal photobiomodulation therapies, movement and massage therapies, supervised forced exercise and nutrition coaching.
“There is hope for Parkinson’s patients,” says Liu. “This program is the first of its kind in treating Parkinson’s disease naturally and holistically. Parkinson’s disease patients will receive tips they can apply right away to help improve their disease outcome.”
