The theory is that VOXX stimulates through the very sensitive acupressure points on the foot,  the mid-brain to relax and do it’s job better.  The mid-brain is in charge of all autonomic processes .  This includes such things as balance, pain, strength, co-ordination, breathing…..   I’m going to look up what are the autonomic processes in the human body.  What if those areas could function better?  What would that mean to your life?  We are just exploring the effects, and we are hearing some amazing testimonials…  Check it out for yourself at this DEMO. 

THIS SMALL GROUP DEMO EVENING AT MY HOUSE
