She is involved with The CLIMB, the Indiana Parkinson Foundation in Noblesville, IN providing massages and also volunteer work during the exercise time.
Following is information from The CLIMB website: The CLIMB in Noblesville is now offering Massage Therapy on-site. The stresses put on the Parkinson patient's body are similar to stresses endured as the result of sporting activities.
The big difference, however, is that exhausting sporting events are typically followed by long periods of rest and relaxation whereas the poor musculature of the Parkinson's patient never has any rest period, and hence suffers structural changes which make it palpably different. Geriatric massage, with its manifold effects on the body is, of course, the perfect medium to keep muscles soft and pliable.
