Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why do I need to allow my body to adapt to the machine?
    • The SilverMink is similar to cardio exercise machines you find in gyms, such as stationary bikes or treadmills. The exercise performed is essentially intense physical activity for the body. The primary component of the SilverMink is a motorized footplate, which generates a spiral vibration at a speed of 7,200 rpm. The footplate also has reflexology-designed bumps intended to stimulate the reflex zones (points) in your feet. The spiral vibrations and the stimulation of your reflex zones (points) causes blood circulation throughout your body to increase by 54.4% as it would if you were riding a bike, jogging or running. If you are usually not very physically active or experience low or improper circulation, a sudden increase of blood circulation may cause dizziness or vomiting. Gradually allow your body to adapt to such vigorous physical activity by taking the recommended introductory steps in using the SilverMink.

  2. Why do I feel like falling off or that I am losing my balance when the footplate is spinning and I am standing on the SilverMink?
    • This is usually an indication of an inner ear, a psychological or a foot problem. This condition can be improved by moving into a squatting position on top of the footplate.

  3. Why do I feel itchy during or after use of the SilverMink?
    • There are nerves adjacent to your small blood vessels and as your blood circulation quickens the small vessels expand, which triggers your nerves and thus the nervous system. This itchiness is a positive side effect and will disappear through repetitive use of the machine. Do not scratch your skin vigorously; lightly pat the itchy area with the palm of your hand.

  4. Why do my feet blister or feel like they are burning after using the SilverMink for 5 to 8 minutes?
    • Blistering on or burning sensations in your feet are normal reactions to the machine and will gradually improve. Uric acid and water content are generally deposited in the lower extremities of your body (i.e. your feet). The spiral vibrations generated by the circulating movements of the footplate will cause water molecules in your feet to surface, hence blistering may occur during the use of the machine.

  5. Why do I feel discomfort in the chest area after using the SilverMink? What can I do?
    • It may be an indication of a lung or bronchus problem.

You should also bathe your feet in salty lukewarm (40 degree Celsius) water in the evening, which will help reduce the swelling.

  8. Why do both feet turn red and become swollen after using the SilverMink?
