In a study of 435 people with PD, 272 reported using complementary therapies to relieve motor, cognitive, mood, and sleep symptoms associated with PD. 75% of those who had used complementary therapies reported that mediation, massage, and other therapies were highly effective in providing relief. Meditation stood out as being effective for 85% of the respondents who had used it. A number of studies showed similar results and two studies showed an observable and reported reduction in anxiety, depression and improved gait.
