The women learned to do weight-bearing movements with an efficiently aligned spine.  “Bones for Life® improves posture, restores equilibrium, and enhances the pleasure of moving,” said Alon. “Your bones reliably sustain your weight, and movement becomes pleasurable, inspiring self confidence and biological optimism.”

    It may sound counter-intuitive, but it’s worth the drive to find someplace to walk in Henry County.

    Town and village dwellers have ready access to downtowns and/or neighborhoods with sidewalks, but if what you crave is countryside, you’ll have to get in the car.
