Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course
Stress is common in Parkinson’s. If you’re experiencing stress, you may benefit from our Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. This course is based on the national model developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Decades of published research shows that those who complete the course report reductions in pain, fatigue, anxiety and sleep disturbance and an overall increase in quality of life.
