Fitness For People With Special Needs & Disabilities

Fitness for adults with disabilities

Everyone can benefit from an exercise regimen but those with special needs and physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities even more so. Research has shown that regular exercise benefits people with disabilities and those suffering from chronic conditions and illnesses. Exercise reduces stiffness, improves mobility, posture, balance and gait. Aerobic exercise increases oxygen delivery and neurotransmitters to keep our heart, lungs, and nervous system healthy. General exercise may also reduce depression.

"I have been dealing with Parkinson”s disease for five years now. I have tried all kinds of things to help me with endless frustration. Then I found Steve. We have gone through weight training, Yoga and massage which have helped to some degree. When Steve performs Reike on me I found that my tremors come to complete stop. In addition, I sleep much more restfully on the days that we works with me."
