Marie Writes • For years I have been off balance when walking. I would veer to the right and could not walk in a straight line. As I left my first reflexology appointment in April 2008, I was amazed to be walking in a straight line to the car. • My legs felt lighter and easier to move, which gave me more get up and go in the morning. My legs improved with each treatment and have been holding. • I have a constant pain behind my right ear, which was diagnosed as a nerve pressure, but doctors were not able to relieve the pain. Since having reflexology treatments the pain has diminished. • Reflexology has helped me get around better. I want to get up and go now instead of just sitting. I always say to Connie, “Just keep me on my feet until it’s my time” and she is doing that. —Marie Foster
