Frequently Asked Questions
- Why do I need to allow my body to adapt to the machine?
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?
- 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.

Why do my feet blister or feel
like they are burning after using the SilverMink for 5 to 8 minutes?
- 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.

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

of the footplate will cause water molecules in your feet to surface,
hence blistering may occur during the use of the machine.

is not a serious side effect and will improve within two months if
a daily regiment of exercise is followed. The machine will help restore
your organ or gland to normal functioning. You should also bathe your
