The Launch of the groundbreaking new Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy
Sing to Beat’s flagship Parkinson’s group, Canterbury Skylarks, were delighted to participate in the launch of the groundbreaking new Parkinson’s Centre for Integrated Therapy on World Parkinson’s Day. Based in the Kent MS Therapy Centre at the University of Kent, the new Centre will provide a range of evidence-based non-pharmacological treatments and wellness resources, so that multiple Parkinson’s symptoms can be managed all under one roof. In addition to physiotherapy, occupational therapy, mental health support and speech and language therapy, the centre also offers wrap-around support including group singing, nutritional guidance, massage and ground-breaking neurostimulation techniques.
The all singing all dancing centre is now launched !. Ever since I first heard about it I thought the Parkinson Centre for integrative therapy in Canterbury was a good idea. But visiting it in person convinced me it is a brilliant one pic.twitter.com/lM2P7Myo7V— Mark Mardell (@MarkIMardell) April 12, 2023
From April 25th, Canterbury Skylarks will relocate to the centre, which is located very close to Simon Langton School for Boys. This will enable Skylarks to continue under the wonderful stewardship of Emily Renshaw-Kidd and sixth-form students from the school, as well as opening up the potential for participation, observation and research from University of Kent students.
