Acupuncture is often a part of the treatment plan to help manage Parkinson’s Disease. Many patients experience a marked reduction in tremor as a result of acupuncture. Recent research has also indicated that electro-acupuncture slows cell degeneration in the substantia nigra, thereby possibly slowing the progression of the disease. Acupuncture also helps sustain memory and cognitive function, reduces stress, and boosts energy and mood.
