WHAT DOES NIAGARA CYCLO-MASSAGE DO?
Studies by competent researchers indicate that the proper use of Niagara is an excellent aid in:
1. Increasing blood circulation in the area of application(as measured by skin temperature and radioisotopic dilution techniques).
2. Decreasing muscle spasms of a variety of types, such as associated with athletic injuries and incisional wounds; spasms and fatigue associated with long-continued postural positions; and, in many cases, the muscle spasm associated with medically- diagnosed chronic or sub-acute arthritis, bursitis, and fibrositis.
3. Decreasing many types of muscle and joint pain such as that of medically-diagnosed chronic or sub-acute arthritis, bursitis, or fibrositis.
4. Relieving the pain of muscle strains, minor strains, low or high back pains, and muscle pain associated with fatigue.
5. Relaxing nervous tension and enhancing sleep(when used at low motor speeds).
6. Decreasing the over-all sense of fatigue after long hours of work (when used at high speeds)
The Niagarassage Cyclo Massage Hand Unit with cycloid vibration is a small, portable, highly efficient device. It can be used over the entire body. The unit is particularly effective in applying the action of Cyclo-Massage to specific localized areas where intensive massage may be needed. This unit is great alone for all purposes, but evidence indicates that the overall results are faster when used concurrently with other Niagarassage Devices such as the Thermo-Cyclopad. The device's simple, ergonomic design makes it easy to self -massage or apply to others with minimal fatigue and limited intrusive noise.
The lower speeds on the Cyclo-Massage motor helps to enhance the general sense of relaxation and decrease everyday stress, nervous tension resulting from overwork, helps the body recover and enhance sleep. The higher motor speeds may repeatedly help relax sore tired, aching, stiff muscles and joints resulting from overwork or postural work positions, evidence of the aging process, arthritic-like aches and pain or tense, sore muscles and joints resulting from excessive exercise. This Cycloid vibration massage unit is a global recovery and movement enhancement technology, specializing in portable high -performance sports medicine and orthopedic devices that provide preventive treatment, accelerate injury recovery and enhance muscles and joint performance. Promoting blood circulation will improve the overall health of the body soft tissue and also help flexibility, energy, deep muscle stimulation, help muscle line shaping, eliminate lactic acid accumulation, open meridian, and body recovery before and after exercise or sports.
Equally important, there is a wide individual variation in the sensory reaction to different speeds of the Cyclo-Massage motor. In other words, each individual must find out for himself what motor speed feels best to meet his own needs.
The effects of increased blood circulation in the areas of application of the massage cluster around two major groups of annoying symptoms encouraged by many people, particularly among older age groups in the course of everyday living. The first of these are general, such as the inability to relax, annoying everyday tension, difficulty in getting to sleep, and fatigue or drowsiness.
The second major groups of common, symptoms encouraged in everyday living are those relating to the musculoskeletal system which may be reflected in the tire or tense, sore, stiff, aching muscles, and joints which may result in overwork, postural occupations, excessive exercise, the aging process or even the arthritic-like aches and pain. The particular advantage of localizing the Handheld Cyclo-Therapy Unit within this latter group is that not many muscle groups or joints are usually affected at any one time so that the Hand Unit can be easily placed under or on the affected area in a comfortable position for the simultaneous application of Cycloid vibration in a comfortable, pleasant form of cycloid therapy massage action to help relieve and repair, many annoying symptoms in the area concerned in the short and long term treatment. The Cycloid Vibration Therapy technology is being used by the world's most elite athletes, in professional and collegiate training rooms and in rehabilitation, fitness, and massage therapy facilities globally.

YOUR WEIGHT IS SO VERY IMPORTANT
Statistics reveal that overweight persons are much more likely to develop the disease of the heart, arteries, and kidneys, or gall bladder disease, cirrhosis of the liver. High blood pressure occurs in obese persons at a rate of 2 1/2 times greater than in normal-weight or thin individuals. 9 out of 10 persons who develop diabetes after the age of 40 years are overweight.
In a study of overweight individuals, it was found that premature death occurred 1 1/2 times more frequently in persons 25% overweight, and twice as frequently in persons 50% overweight, than normal weight or thin individuals.
In summary, your weight not only affects your appearance but your health and your very life. For this reason, the Niagara Weight Control Program has been developed.
THE OBJECTIVES TO ACHIEVE IN DIETING
Dieting should not be considered only a means of losing weight to improve appearance. Rather, it should be a habit ... a way of life. You should begin by taking in less food than your body requires to maintain weight. After you have reached the desired weight, you should eat only that amount of food your body consumes as energy. It really isn't difficult. In fact, all of these objectives can be achieved easily, and with improved health and a better sense of well-being by following the Niagara Weight Control Program.
THE RATIONAL APPROACH TO DIETING
For the purpose of considering your diet, it is well to look at your body as a biological machine that consumes energy in the form of heat and physical motion. The only source that your body has for replenishing this energy is food.
The unit, for measuring the energy requirements of the body and the energy contents of foods, is the calories. Their normal sedentary woman's body consumes a little more than 2000 calories of energy a day, whereas a normal sedentary man's body consumes nearly 3000 calories a day.
Naturally, if your day involves much physical activity- walking, sports, hard - labor, etc --your body will consume more” fuel”. Your daily calorie requirements thus will be greater than those indicated above. However, for the purposes of your reducing program, it is best to consider the 2000 and 3000 calories as a good average.
If you eat fewer calories than your body consumes, you must lose weight; if you eat more calories than your body consumes, it must be stored in the body as fat.
Diet alone is not a simple answer, because your body has to use up this stored energy or fat in the form of work, exercise, and massage. ( And remember, there are nearly 4000 calories in a pound of fat.)
So if you are a normal woman requiring 2000 calories of energy daily and you are on a 1000 calorie diet, it will take four days for your body to use up the 4000 calories of energy stored as 1 pound of fat.
This can be done with better health, improved appearance, and a better sense of well being by following the Niagara Weight Control Program.
Use Niagara cycloid massage faithfully--- it is paramount to proper weight reduction.
The Niagara cycloid massage action developed by Niagara equipment has been studied extensively by objective physical means. The results revealed that this is indeed a unique and new physical modality.
The patented Motors developed a high frequency, variable, small amplitude, multi-directional cycloid motion. This action travels considerable distances and is transmitted deeply and widely through soft and bony tissues as a gentle, soothing deep massage.
This unique action, by stimulating blood circulation deeply and over considerable areas of the body, brings increased nourishment to the skin and muscles to maintain skin and muscle tone. The action acts as an effective form of passive exercise that facilitates the mobilization and utilization of unwanted fat.
There are three basic objectives in using Niagara cycloid massage in weight reduction. The first is to stimulate circulation and maintain the tone of skin and muscle in key areas of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, or thighs, as weight is lost.
The second objective is to initiate passive muscle exercise in areas of particular concern such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs, and at the same time mobilize or move fat by stimulating circulation with the deep, widely conducted Niagara Cycloid Massage action.
Finally, Niagara is applied to attain a sense of well-being through relaxation. Thus, adherence to a proper dietary regime becomes simple and pleasant.
A major point in using Niagara equipment in weight reduction is the results are in ratios to the amount of time it is used daily. Every effort should be made to use it at least three times daily, and as more often as possible. Niagara should be used before meals rather than immediately after eating.
Of course, the distribution of excess weight varies widely among different individuals. Particular attention should be paid to those areas of the body of immediate concern to you.
The application of Niagara to the body can be achieved by any of the larger Niagarassage units such as the Thermo- Cyclopad. A key unit in the weight reduction program, though, is the Niagarassage Hand Unit. Although the larger unit allows the application of Niagara action to be broader areas of the body, the Hand Unit permits the application of cycloid massage to those specific areas that may be a particular concern, such as the face, neck, abdomen, arms, hips or legs.
While you are applying Niagara to broader areas of the body with one of the larger Niagara units, the hand unit should be worked over particular localized areas to increase circulation and maintain skin and muscle tone, and at the same time mobilize fat. You will find detailed directions for use of the Niagara Units in their package. There will be more information regarding Niagara Weight Control Program and its development in the near future.
