“Valerie, you are doing great things!!! I wish my dad was your patient. He does not have Parkinson’s, but he has significant balance issues. PT has helped him immensely. I wish that you could evaluate him someday. You are one of the best!!!! I miss working with you!”
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’
“Thank you Valerie Waldron Johnson and Balance Therapy for keeping this Parkinson’s person more limber and more symptom free with your knowledge of correct exercises, stretches and cardio to help delay Parkinson’s progress! I look forward to all our sessions!”
The results have been immediate. I feel better (more free in my movements) than I have since my diagnosis and will be discussing dropping one of my medication at my next neurological appointment.
“I look forward to my sessions with Valerie. The classes are fun but challenging.”
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.
