  • This is timely for me, because I just booked a train trip heading to Halifax, NS (home) for early April, to visit my mom. The train is a long haul (the better part of two days) and involves a transfer at one point, so these stretches will help! 🙂 (I booked a sleeper cabin for the Montreal-Halifax, then Halifax-Montreal part, though! LOL.)

  • This is wonderful…I have a 9 hour drive to Michigan for a Camping trip at the Dunes in June! I have CVI and wear compression, I was so worried about the long drive and my legs! Thank you❤
