Duration: As long as necessary to relax muscle tissue.
Lower Back Pain and Cramping
Turn on the Body Massager, reach around and place massager on the cramping muscle.
Warning: Unless you are very flexible, do not attempt this technique at home.

Duration: 7-10 minutes or until cramping has eased.
Leg Cramps and Stimulating Circulation - Shoes Off
To prevent leg cramps and stimulate circulation in the legs and feet, simply turn the Foot Massager on low and place feet on the massager. When using with bare feet, one can use the "Arch Bar" to massage the inside arch of ones foot. This technique is very good for relieving aching feet caused by fallen arches and other tendon-muscle related pain. One can also curl toes around the "Arch Bar" to relieve cramping arthritic toes.
Duration: 15-20 minutes for maximum circulation.
Leg Cramps and Stimulating Circulation - Shoes On
The Medi-Rub Foot Massager is so powerful, it can even be used with your shoes on. This is very helpful for people who have sores on their feet, and feel more comfortable massaging their feet with shoes on. Also ideal in applications where the massager will be used in a public place and sanitation is a concern.
Note: The Medi-Rub Foot Massager oscillates and does not vibrate like other foot massagers.
Duration: 15-20 minutes for optimal circulation.
For Paraplegics and Quadriplegics
The Medi-Rub Foot Massager is very beneficial for paraplegics, quadriplegics or anyone who is wheelchair bound since it provides circulation to the feet and calves, keeping the feet from swelling and possibly preventing the formation of blood clots as well as helping with the healing of pressure sores.
Note: To address the issue of the feet slipping, the green pad may be turned around so that the bar is on the bottom to keep the feet in place.
