I always want to lose weight but I am lazy and love to eat. I am not in the overweight range, but I have some extra fat in my body, I do not have a beautiful body and I hate exercising. So, I bought this Body Slimming Massager from eBay to test it out. I bought it on 10 July from a ShenZhen, China seller (toplcbsales) for USD $6.67 with free standard shipping and I received it on 15 August, about 5 weeks.
Though I am not sure about the fat burning function as I have no idea how to test that but this electronic pulse massager is quite good for relieving stiffness in muscles and can be quite relaxing. If you have super tense muscles from a hard day at work, it would be nice to end the day with a massage and Body Slimming Massager Y-1018 will be a good affordable massager to have at home. It is very comforting when you need some relief.
It can be used in many areas in your body, including arms, neck and shoulders, back, low back, legs, feet, joints etc. In a Nutshell, it is intended to be used as a massager to relieve (muscle) pain, stiffness, fatigue and improve blood circulation and body function. The massaging effect is achieved by electronic stimulation of the nerves through electrode pads placed on the skin. Various massage treatment programs can be selected.
I placed all 4 electrodes on my stiff shoulder and ran it for the 15 minutes. The small electrical pulses are transmitted to the body, like little electric shocks. The stiffness in my shoulders had loosened after the treatment and I am very satisfied with it. Although there is not much robust proof that this massager works, I do find it very helpful and I think it is a good deal for the money.
