Help us fund free physical therapy for newly diagnosed person’s with Parkinson’s disease!
I cannot be strong enough in my recommendation to seek out Dr. Johnson, or physical therapy. The education in exercise technique is immensely valuable. The gift of a transformed mindset regarding real engagement in that exercise is priceless.

Valerie a just checking in to let you know my recovery has gone extremely well. Thank you for helping restore my balance and strength. You are a miracle worker.
“Valerie, you are the best! You put up with my whining and encouraged me every time. I did my homework because you care so much! I’m still balancing -it’s become a natural routine for me-thanks to every there (360 Balance, Austin, TX). I’ll be back if I need fine tuning.”
“Valerie truly has a great thing going for this population. Every mutual patient we share just raves about her personality and how hard she works them. Thank you for all you do for our community.”
But the most important gift she gave me was a different understanding, on an emotional level, of the value and importance of the exercise in which she was training me. For instance, she summarized that she was ‘retraining my brain’
I had nothing to lose. There were still spots with Dr. Johnson open under the grant, so I signed up for physical therapy. It was perhaps the best decision of my life.
“I look forward to my sessions with Valerie. The classes are fun but challenging.”
