Natick, MA (June 6, 2022) – Non-profit Mary Ann Morse Healthcare Center of Natick is pleased to announce that its LSVT BIG Therapy® trained and licensed clinicians now offer the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment® physical therapy program. The LSVT therapy program is research based and designed to help individuals with Parkinson’s disease and other similar conditions improve skills such as walking and balance.
