“One day at the Yeovil NASS group we tried Nordic Walking. As strange as it may seem using the sticks and techniques Helen showed us, I found this amazing relief in my posture and hips. Basically all of my pain had gone whilst walking in this fashion. Also, you felt the stretches and effects of the exercises and all of this walking in the great outdoors. All the mundane sitting on the end of the bed and stretching in solitude was no more.”
