Discover the Full Potential of your Feet

Last week, in a Greek paradise, a friend made me step out of my conventional habits by suggesting that I take my shoes off and walk barefoot in the forest with her. Like many I enjoy walking barefoot at home or on a fine sandy beach. Walking barefoot in the forest turned out to be […]

The Six Million Dollar Man
