    Pad about Britain in Field and Trek walking boots and then go natural!

    British Historian, George Macaulay Trevelyan said: “I have two doctors, my left leg and my right”. Walking is known as the one of the easiest and best forms of exercise, with a large amount of health benefits. Wearing the right walking boots, you can also see the most beautiful natural sceneries. So why not pull off your socks and go walking naturally?

    Barefoot walking is the latest trend to hit the world of walking.  Walking reflexology paths reduces blood pressure and improves balance according to a study published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society. Other possible health benefits include controlling common foot problems, relieving some joint problems, improving posture and reducing the risk of children ‘s foot deformities. In recent years barefoot walking trails, guided walks and holidays have climbed. Sebastian Kneipp, a Bavarian priest was the first to suggest that therapeutic benefits can be gained from walking over natural stimuli. However we were barefoot walking for millennia before shoes were introduced. Long term barefoot walking can be eased in to by slowly lowering the padding on the boot soles.
