Hi Knickey, Thanks for your good advice. I have tried a second therapist and she seem to be much better for me. It is through the Wllness Center at the Y. She is actually a physicial therapist. The reason being: my insurance, Blue Cross/Blue Shield would only play if the massage was done through physicial therapy. Otherwise it would not be covered. The therapist also said she had a special water class that I could benefit from. I plan on trying that also. Also I do have a pool. I went out yesterday and bought a bathing suit. My are they expensive! I haven't had one on in three or four years. Can you imagine that? Thanks J.W.
