I had a similar machine I bought years ago, called a Chi Machine. A yoga teacher tried to sell me one for $500. I saw the identical machine on a late night home shopping cable channel for under a $100 and bought one. I used it a few times and now it's in the pile of "pain stuff" collecting dust. It was relaxing, and gently massaged and moved my butt around. I think the major benefits of these types of machines are offering a "time out" from the daily grind for some relaxation and allowing the TMS affected areas of the anatomy to relax their tightness. The machine in question looks is more elaborate then the one Chi Machine I have and looks like it could have some relaxation benefits--especially if you use it about eight hours a day, plugging it into the the hours of the day that produce the TMS creating stressful emotional events--such as work and relationships. I can't see the device causing injury, just some gentle massaging. Reviewers on the internet were critical of the telemarketers and if you want to return it for a refund, good luck! If you're interested, I would wait until you can buy it at a bricks and mortar store in the "As Seen On TV" department, highly discounted and more easily returnable. It does look relaxing and may be fun at parties to break the ice. After a few sessions it would probably be collecting dust with the rest of the pain stuff. As for Dr. Schechter endorsing it, Beverly Hills is in the high-rent district, TMS comprises a very small segment of any physician's practice, because 99% of sufferers want a quick allopathic fix, not wanting to hear that "It's all in your head". It won't do any harm except to one's wallet and is not as invasive as surgery. I've found that by the time many TMS'ers get here, they have depleted their bank accounts with all the other stuff A to Z and don't have anything left to pay a TMS practitioner who can really help them at a fraction of what they've spent on stuff that hasn't worked--or their insurance won't cover the $500-$1000, that a work-up by a TMS physician or a few sessions of therapy by a bonafide TMS counselor would cost.
