Parkinson's group to hear about Jenkins technique Feb. 6

Jan 12, 2018

Camden — The Parkinson’s Support Group will devote the first half of its February meeting to a presentation by John Jenkins, martial arts champion, athlete and founder of a comprehensive wellness system that combines elements of yoga, Tai Chi Chuan, guided relaxation and more. The gathering is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 6, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Anderson Inn at Quarry Hill, 30 Community Drive, and is open to all those living with Parkinson’s as well as their family members and caregivers.

Formally known as the Tai-Chi Therapy Experience for Balance In and Of Life, the Jenkins technique is designed to benefit people of all ages and all physical abilities, including those with movement-related conditions such as Parkinson’s. Jenkins will provide an interactive overview of the technique, the philosophy behind it and its usefulness in helping those with Parkinson’s achieve an optimally “balanced” state of physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

After the presentation, attendees will divide into smaller groups to discuss insights and perspectives.
