Discover the potential of VOXX SOCKS and INSOLES

by participating in this small group (max 8 people)  DEMO and INFO session.

Really, this has to be seen to believed!

How many of you want to get healthier through fitness with Nordic Pole walking?

How many of you are stopped from exercising by pain, low fitness, or balance issues?

VOXX WILL HELP YOU!

How many of you are fairly healthy but want to do even more?

VOXX WILL HELP YOU!

(Note: your $10 registration fee will be refunded at the DEMO.)

YOU MUST REGISTER ONLINE TO ATTEND!  This is the simplest way to keep track of registrations.

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.
