Many approaches work well to help maintain and improve mobility, flexibility and balance to ease non-motor Parkinson Disease symptoms such as depression or constipation.

Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into specific locations in the body in order to help relieve an ailment or issue. Acupuncture is most commonly used as a complementary therapy in patients with Parkinson Disease for a decrease in side effects, and improvements in daily life, such as improved sleep. Acupuncture can alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson Disease, delay the progression of these symptoms, allow for a decrease in the dosage of antiparkinsonian drugs, and decrease side effects. Acupuncture leads to the release of endorphins, or brain chemicals that can trigger a sense of wellness.
