Testimonials for 'Granny.'
"Written in an easy to read engaging format, "Granny" is full of useful information for anyone who is anticipating a knee replacement. The sooner you read this book the better, but I would recommend it anytime after or long before a replacement. The Feldenkrais movement exercises in this book will help you take the stress off your knees and get your whole body supporting your movements making them easier and more efficient. It is also helpful to go into surgery prepared with knowledge and expectations as well as a body sense of ways to move that will help you immediately after surgery. I would recommend this book for anyone with arthritis in their knees or anyone who wants to help them, including my fellow PT's." ~Tracy, PT

Since knee replacements are becoming increasingly common I think this is a " must have" handbook for pre and post op. Highly recommended, an invaluable resource for both the patient and their family." ~ Laurel M.

Once we honor our bodies we honor who we are - the Mind/Body/Spiritual Organism which is who we truly are!" ~ Paula P.

"I know from personal experience how incredibly helpful this Feldenkrais ( Miss Linda Thomas' ) approach is. It somehow takes away all the pain which the other therapists told me was necessary for a successful outcome. My orthopedist could
not believe how much range of motion and healing I had gained. Now it is available in a simple to read, charming book from Amazon!! Hurray!!
Go Granny, go!!!" ~ Anne B.
