Stepping into the Sunshine by Grace Greenwood

I attended Grace Greenwood’s Book Launch about 10 days ago at the Alverton in Truro and, following on from my last blog, heard stories from a number of women who had found Bodywork (of various forms) a vital part of making fundamental changes in their lives and outlooks.

Ergonomics
