Dear Gary,

I was on the boardwalk along the beach when I passed a man who was having a difficult time walking. He was holding on to the rail with one hand and clutching a walking cane in the other. His friend also was holding on tight to him for safety.

I passed by them but something made me turn around and approach them. I quickly found out that none of them spoke English. A few words from them made me think that they were Polish. I asked the gentleman, "Are you all right?" He said "Parkinson."  I noticed that when he let go the rail his left hand waved uncontrollably in all directions without purpose. I had only seen this kind of behavior once in physical therapy with a patient with Huntington's disease (a degenerative disease in the cerebral cortex of the brain). This along with the Parkinson’s was pitiful to watch but I couldn't leave.

I will call him Ben because I never got his name.

I placed his hand back on the rail and began to tap on him for…

"This Parkinson’s disease" He repeated "Parkinson." Great, I thought.

I tapped again and said "Parkinson…. Relax." He repeated. I tapped for about three rounds until I heard him take a big sigh. Then I removed his hand from the rail and turned him around so that his back was against the rail for support. Then I tapped and said...

“Even though my body will not do what I want it to do, I choose to relax and be calm.”

“Even though my left arm goes anywhere it wants to, I choose to have control.”

I repeated these statements until I heard him sigh. He looked much more relaxed. I took his hand and made him take a step away from the rail. By this time there was no movement from his left arm, it just hung by his side. He was able to stand on his own without help and he was breathing calmly. I began to tap again for…

“Even though I have this fear of moving, I choose for my body to relax.”

After the next sigh I demonstrated turning at my waist from right to left. He repeated without any help. He was smiling now and his friend stood with his mouth open.

I then took his hand and we walked a little. He shuffled his feet a little, so I tapped again.

“Even though my feet are shuffling, I choose to walk with ease and grace.”

I did about three rounds again until I felt that it was time to re-test him.

This time he walked about fifteen feet just holding my hand. But his head was slightly forward. I said KING and tried to demonstrate me walking like a king. His friend caught on and repeated something in polish to Ben. Ben stood up straight and smiled.

I tapped for… “Even though my head is forward, I choose to walk like a king”

This time I had him walk by himself with me very close by for safety. He walked and I tapped on his face and under his arm. He walked with confidence, speed and with no fear.

By this time 20 min had passed and I was getting a nice sun burn. He made a motion to ask for my number. I gave it to him. I watched as the two men walked hand in hand down the boardwalk as if going for a nice stroll. His friend was holding Ben’s cane for him.  All this on a very busy boardwalk and with little or no English…
