"Hi Choice.  I really appreciate your most recent post.  It really helps to clarify some of the issues.   And, I've also been meaning to try rosemary sprigs as skewers for the grill - that sounds really appealing."

Hi Choice.  I really appreciate your most recent post.  It really helps to clarify some of the issues.

 

And, I've also been meaning to try rosemary sprigs as skewers for the grill - that sounds really appealing.

Hi Choice,
I am also one of the instructors with Bonny, Ernesto and Gloria. I would be delighted to hold a seminar in Utah. Send some dates for 2010 and let's see if this can happen. We all are anxious to spread Tian Di Bamboo - the all natural alternative.
Thanks. B.B. Gould call me

Hello Choice,

I am very happy you loved to use Bamboo in your Therapy. I developed Bamboo-Fusion in 2004 and during class we learn so much strokes that we do have the time to do the full body routine only one time.

After class you know how to work moderate to deep pressure and also be able to work on specific area :)
