Here are some typical exercise routines for effective Body Slimming and Toning using the SliverMink TY-510 Foot Massaging Machine.
1. Foot Stepping Posture
Divided into Toes and Soles:
A. Toes - Sit on a chair and position your toes at the edge of the massaging plate for about 1 – 2 minutes.
B. Soles - Sit on a chair and simultaneously place both soles evenly on the massaging plate. After 5 – 10 minutes the soles may feel warmer giving you a relaxed feeling. This posture is the basic posture for beginners to gradually get used to the machine.
2. Standing Posture
Stand with both feet together on the massaging plate. Try to keep the body straight and balanced, as this is the best posture for most users. It is best to use the machine for 15 minutes. When starting out you may not be able to handle the high frequency rotation for 15 minutes, so work your way up to it. Generally you will be able to adjust yourself and keep balance after a short amount of time.
When using the standing posture, people with tight muscles and joints and serious blood blockages may get a swollen feeling in the legs. If this occurs switch to tendon pulling postuers such as squatting and waist bending to adapt to the machine slowly.
3. Squatting Posture
Bend both knees to squat down with both heels being firmly and evenly on the machine, putting hands onto the side of the massaging plate to keep the body balanced and repeat every 30 seconds.
4. Tendon Stretching Posture
Keep both legs straight and try to touch your toes every 20 seconds for 10 seconds. You can increase the amount of stretch time as your msucles loosen and your balance improves. You can do a routine of starting with the standing posture, then the squatting posture, back to the standing posture and then the tendon pulling posture. This will gradually stretch out the muscles.
5. Hand Supporting Posture
Place the palms or the back of your hands on top of the massaging plate and keep there for 3 – 5 minutes.
6. Knee Bending Posture
Bend the right knee forward with the left leg stretch back behind you in a lunge fashion, like a big stride forwards onto the massaging plate. Do for approximately 20 seconds for each leg and repeat alternating between the legs.
7. Sitting Posture
Place the haunches on the massaging plate with both legs comfortably stretched out or bent. 10 -15 minutes of this exercise is suggested each time. This is one of the main general use postures for most users. You can also press both hands down onto the front edge of the massaging plate between your legs to change the massaging point to the arms and rocking back on your haunches to transfer the vibration up to your shoulders.
8. Sleeping Posture
Lie flat on the mat and relax the whole body. Keep this posture for 15-30 minutes each time. Users should change their postures according to their health conditions. The main point is to massage the body at different places to achieve different results. Users may change the transmission power and the distance between the square pads as they desire. Introduced below are several different sleeping postures and massage points which can be used as references.
