You have to call them, and they have a large variety, not the ones you see in regular shoe stores. They cater to people with different needs.

I am trying light Qigong movements on Youtube to help with my posture, they are free, and I am Certified in Medical Qigong (working on people - like healing touch). I know the movements are good for our bodies physical, mental, and emotional healing. If this appears to you, start slow.

Blessing and Peace
