I walk and stretch most everyday but felt I needed more. I bought this machine because I sit most of the day at work at a computer and feel like I needed help in getting my blood flowing throughout my body. I watched the YouTube videos to help get me started and have been using my machines four times a week for a couple of weeks and I am totally convinced my body awakening in all areas. Standing straight blew my mind the way it affects my hips and lower back deeply. There is not anything like it. I get massages regularly, but never had the loosening results that this machine gives me. Each different body pose shifts the workout results. You can also repeat movements to build strength. This is a great addition to expand your exercise program.
