I recently bought one locally and I thought it's cool. I'm not trying to lose weight but just wanna have a good relaxing massage when I come home from work everyday. This Vmax vibration machine is supposed to help my blood flow and I can totally feel it. With different postures, I can feel the vibration waves work on different parts of my muscles. Like when I stand straight on the platform, the vibration waves can go up to my tight lower back and I feel great. I didn't want to get a massage chair coz I already have too much sitting in the office.
