Foundation grant aids those living with Parkinson's Disease
The Center for Integrative Medicine, previously the Center for Health and Healing, has received a $24,000 grant to aid those in the community facing the chronic stress of living with Parkinson's disease, as well as their caregivers. The Spartanburg County Foundation funded the grant and it will be implemented within the next 12 months.

The Center for Integrative Medicine is a program provided by Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System and Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute.

Ten individuals living with Parkinson's disease, a degenerative neurological disorder, will benefit from Brainwave Optimization, which is designed and programmed to aid with physical and mental relaxation.

"The center’s integrative approach includes Brainwave Optimization to deeply relax the brain, and is followed by ballet master Alex Tressor’s Parkinson's on the Move© Program," said Hunter Mahon, manager of the center. "Through the grant, we strive to increase awareness of Parkinson’s disease and the power of self-care techniques for strengthening our community," Mahon said.
