Parkinson’s Cafe Hosts Class on Massage Therapy 

Lizz Pugh, owner of Lakewood Ranch Medical Massage, recently gave an informational talk on December 3, to both Parkinsons patients and their supporters at the Parkinson’s Cafe. This community-wide program is a positive and uplifting monthly event that brings together patients and their families for social, cultural and intellectual discussion.  

Pugh, a Massage Therapist and Touch Educator, presented on the topics of medical research, communication tips, basic techniques, safety and more. Pugh has also made these resources available to non-attending Parkinson’s patients—regardless of whether they are involved in the Parkinson’s Cafe program—on her website. In addition, she will be uploading videos for at-home use for both patients and their caregivers, free of charge.
