Worth the time & money -

I have had a career in fitness and nutrition and have been physically active all my life; just turned 54. I moved from Canada to Florida 9 years ago and have been more aware of showing my legs almost 12 months of the year; shorts and bathing suits. This has never been a problem until after menopause when the front of my thighs began looking irregular; not full cellulite but not smooth as they used to. I have tried many creams that were only pleasant to use but no actual results. I have been using the Wellbox for a month. It takes some learning with how to hold the treatment head you are using and work it in different directions but after one or 2 uses that was not an issue. I enjoy how it feels on my legs, stomach and my face. There is a visible improvement to the appearance of my skin; it looks and feels smooth. I exercise daily and finally feel really good again about showing my legs. I have also done treatments on my hip/butt where I experience intense sciatica pain and although I am not suggesting this substitutes for medical treatment, when you are at the end of a long day of physical activity it feels good and brings relief. I have never had this type of treatment in a clinic but I could not afford to get into those. I saved for this devise knowing this is not an immediate fix not will it be permanent if I do not take the time it needs and do it regularly. So this is what I am doing for myself and it was the best decision I could have made. It is a machine so it makes some noise but I am able to get past it and I am easily bothered by noise. It does not come with a "how to" DVD but it has a booklet with good instructions and pictures. If you need to see it used there is a video on their web-site. This machine is an investment in yourself and like many others it takes patience and persistence but the results are often worth the effort. They have been for me.
