Wednesday, March 2, 2022 | 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET

People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) who seek relief from movement and non-movement symptoms may decide to explore complementary therapies that can support more traditional treatments. There are many kinds of therapies — from Mind-body applications or acupuncture to herbal supplements — that may help maximize quality of life. Learn more about how to communicate the use of these therapies with your care providers for optimal outcomes.
