Small study examines benefits of holistic exercise

A small study suggests holistic exercise could benefit patients with dementia, as well as their caregivers.

Researchers in the U.K. observed eight patients with dementia, along with five of their caregivers, and had them complete 45-minute exercise sessions for six weeks. Exercises included yoga, meditation, stretching, and dance.

Researchers found both patients and caregivers felt better and more relaxed, and some even reported less pain after the sessions.
