    Not sure where to start or what to say but my wife suffered with stress incontience for a number of years and it was hard for her to live with, we decided there must be a better way to live, we now work to gether in a wellbeing clinic in Lincoln. We have invested our savings in a machine that cured my wife Lou of her incontience what changed her life. Now we want bring this new machine to the rest of the Uk. We are only 1 of 2 clinics in the U.K. that offer this treatment. You sit on the chair fully clothed and the chair delivers 11200 Kegel exercise in 30 mins pain free. After a course of 6 my wife Lou is dry and pad free from wearing 4 pads a day before treatment. So my question is, is there a away you can help me get this out to your forums either by posts or advertising.
