Operating Notes

  • When the P3 program is selected, you can set the time before the program begins. You can adjust the speed while the program is running.
  • When the P1 program is selected, the rotating acupressure heads will stop operating as soon as you place your feet on the device. This is not a defect.

Correct Use Positions

Place the foot arch or calf on the machine. To use it on your back, place it on the back, rest and lean on it.

  • FEET/CALF: Place the arch of your foot or your calf on the machine.
  • BACK: Place the device on the back of a chair, lean against the device, and activate the device. Ensure that your hair is not touching the device. Do not wear loose clothing when using this device on your back.

Program for Beginners (Vibration Only)

  1. Turn on the device by pressing the Power Button on the remote.
  2. Select the P1 program by pressing the P Button on the remote once. The vibration speed will start at level 1 (the lowest level).
  3. Use this program for 10 minutes per day for three consecutive days.
  4. On the fourth day, increase the vibration speed to level 2 by pressing the Speed + Button once after setting the device to the P1 program.
  5. Use this program for 10 minutes a day for three or more consecutive days.
  6. Continue increasing the vibration speed of the program once every few days until you have built up your foot strength enough to be comfortable on speed level 10. If you feel discomfort at any point, stop and lower the speed level until you are strong enough to endure the program for 10 minutes. Then, continue increasing the speed level once every few days.

Adding Massage

After completing the Program for Beginners, your feet should be strong enough to introduce the massage feature used by programs P2 and P3. Follow the same gradual increase in vibration speed as with the Program for Beginners.

  • When using programs P2 and P3, be sure to place your feet in the correct position (see Correct Use Positions, p. 8).
  • Align the highest part of the arches of your feet with the massage wheel in the device (see Fig. 1).
  • You can control the strength of the massage by exerting more or less pressure on the arches of your feet. Begin by applying only a little pressure on your arches and gradually increase pressure over time as your feet grow stronger

TIP: Wearing thicker socks on your feet will give you more padding, which will reduce the pressure on your feet.
