Based on diverse methods including the PARKINSON EN MOUVEMENT PEM approach, in our dance and movement classes, we dance to the rhythm of a lively music, in the company of a dance therapist. Everyone puts their best at it with ample movements, soaring arms and big steps in space.
Based on the most advanced research as to the positive effects of music and of certain types of movement for people with PD, PEM is a unique initiative which brings together the expertise of both dance and physiotherapy, as well as elements of ergonomics and voice training. The dances foster improvements in strength, balance, endurance, range of motion, gait and posture, and integrate movements useful in daily activities
