Welcome

Welcome to the website of the New Zealand Essential Tremor Support Group. This website has been set up to provide information and support for people effected by Essential Tremor.

Essential Tremor (ET) is a neurological disorder that causes a rhythmic shaking of the arms or other body parts, often misdiagnosed as Parkinson's disease. Here you can find a description of Essential Tremor and links to medical and research information.

You can also learn more about the support group and read personal stories by people effected by ET.
