"Problem: I am 72 years old and have been in excellent health throughout my life until last summer. I am still working on a diagnosis. I did take a bad fall the winter of 2003. Last winter I progressively got worse and experienced a lot of inflammation and pain, primarily in my shoulders and arms and hip area. I had gotten so bad that I was truly getting very discouraged. My sister who is a massage therapist from Maine, had purchased a Infratonic earlier in June for use during her therapy sessions. She had recently ordered a second machine to have available to here clients for orthopedic injuries, pre/post surgery and to enhance general well-being during physical and emotional trauma. When she heard through others how badly off I was she immediately took time off to come work on me and ended up leaving that second machine with me.
Treatment: I have used it daily ever since for one to four hours/day and often fall asleep with it at night until I wake up to go to the bathroom. In bed I typically use it on the Body setting and while awake I use it on Mind & Spirit.
Quality of Life Improvements: I can truly say that my sister's work and the Infratonic were a real turnaround for me. The Infratonic has undoubtedly improved my quality of life. I have a lot of inflammation in my hands and legs/feet as well and it helps reduce inflammation and pain. It has improved all aspects of my life including sleeping, walking, my entire physical and emotional well being. I still must work 3 days a week, and it is comforting to know that I can return home and get relief from my inflammation and pain with the Infratonic. If I were to win this I would give it to my sister so she could have it available for her clients. Thank you."

"Neck pain. Nightly applications on the “Low” setting - sometimes all night during sleep. Reduction in pain. When I feel better - I’m more productive and happier. Thank you!"
Jill Pettigrew, Fallbrook, CA
"Hip pain subsequent to bicycle injury recurring with exertion over twenty years. Applied (Mind) to illotibial band of affected leg 3 times for twenty minutes. Immediate reduction in discomfort - lasting reduction in severity of flare-ups over 2 years. Greater comfort in all areas."

"For myself, my thumbs were suffering from overuse syndrome, and any thumb pressure applied to my clients during massages created considerable pain in the thumbs and thumb pads. The reason I purchased QGM through the spa where I worked was that during our training class I applied it (Mind) for less than 5 minutes over the thumb and thumb pad areas. I had immediate relief from pain in just that short a period of time!
I have used my own equipment consistently for mid-back, upper shoulder, hip/thigh connections, low back - you name it - symptomatically, whenever and wherever I hurt. I have never failed to see positive results. As indicated above, QGM treatments have kept me going. I’m 62 and able to keep up with the younger therapists. I truly believe the QGM has kept me “out of trouble” with my body, and I’m delighted to have had the experience."

No pain and only occasional numbness. Walks/runs daily. Little to no pain after exercise. Concentration back to normal. Sleeps through the night. Feels without the Q4 he never would have improved."

"I spent more than $100,000 over the past two years to try to find a way to live with chronic pain and the resulting insomnia and nervousness. I spent a month at a chronic pain management clinic. I own two TENS UNITS. I've tried chiropractic acupuncture, hypnosis and neck surgery. I've tried pills: Zanax, Halcion, Valium and all kinds of medicines for heart, nervousness, sleeping and of course, pain. The more drugs I took, the worse I got. I thought my life was over.
Now, thanks to the Infratonic I'm active again, working 12 to 14 hours a day, and I feel better than I have in years. It started with back pain that kept me from sleeping, and without sleep, I wouldn't be able to think the next day. All the drugs I was taking just compounded the problems. Now when I have back pain I put the Infratonic on my back. Within five minutes the pain is relieved and I feel so relaxed that I can fall right to sleep. Recently, I was preparing to take a trip and discovered that my wife would not let the Infratonic out of the house because she needed it for her aches and pains! So we are now a two Infratonic family."

"My clients and I are still benefiting greatly from the Infratonic. One friend had chronic sciatic since last January, trying chiropractic with deep tissue massage, physical therapy, acupuncture and massage with me. Everything helped a little, but it is having the Infratonic everyday that has turned the tables for her, and she reports continued improvement. Also, my grandson had a bad eye infection, cough and cold, deep circles under his eyes. The night before he had awakened with nightmares and coughing. I put the Infratonic next to him for one hour while he slept. He only awoke to use the bathroom and slept a little better. In the morning, his infection was greatly reduced and he had more energy. Pretty amazing stuff, this qi!"

"When I'm tired, I use the Infratonic machine. When we travel in the car, my neck gets so sore. After a couple of times using the Infratonic, the pain is relieved. Also, my husband's hand was badly swollen. He used the Infratonic and very shortly the swelling had gone down. We keep the machine by our recliners in the den and use it quite often to relax us. It works wonders.

"My wife and I have received benefit from the use of the Infratonic machine. One treatment relieved low back pain for my wife. She is a teacher and has found that using the Infratonic machine on her feet after work sooths her tired feet, and helps her to sleep well. And, I have an old knee injury, which was recently re-injured. I used the Infratonic on my knee one night and the pain was gone the next day. I have also used the Infratonic machine on my chest to strengthen my immune system. I have found the added benefit of a good night's sleep. I am currently using the machine on the dan dien point to strengthen my internal organs, and plan to use it to promote calm in my ten month old child as she goes through the teething process."
"Mostly I use the Infratonic machine at the localized area of pain. I also use it for my immune system by placing it on the meridian points between the chest. I like the results I get using the machine locally on the points of pain. Recently I injured my wrist, resulting in a multiple sprain. The very first treatment with the Infratonic machine, for 10-20 minutes, took away all the throbbing and pain. I used it on my wrist over the weekend and noticed about a 60% improvement. By the end of the two weeks, there was an 80% improvement. This was much quicker healing than I had hoped for. I am able to use my wrist almost to full capacity now, and I am very pleased with the roll the Infratonic machine was able to play in the healing process."
Dr. Frank Kinslow, Burton, MI
"I was literally bedridden and almost out of it with severe pain for two weeks. I've only started to surface in the past two days. The Infratonic machine is a miracle for helping relieve severe pain. I don't know what I have done without it both during this extremely painful bout of a sciatica-like condition, and previously for months on end with the severe and debilitating pain of Lyme disease."
Karen Hoxeng, Los Altos, CA
"The Infratonic has become a very important part of my daily life. The benefits from it are beyond my wildest imagination: From arthritis, headaches, tension, sleep and even waking up better and thinking more alert, it does it all. I've never felt so good in years and years. I am under the care of a wonderful chiropractor, Dr. Wayman, who recommended I get the Infratonic, and he is amazed at my progress giving credit in part to the Infratonic."
Valerie M. Williams, Vancouver, WA
"I treated (Spirit) center of chest, 5 minutes. (Mind) neck, 10 minutes. (Body) neck & lower back 20 minutes. 3 times in a week. Reduction in pain killers. From uncomfortable to tolerable, reduced pain, more optimistic about tomorrow being better, laughing more, easier to walk and sleep through the night. Have started walking 1-1/2 miles daily."
Cleta McDow, Granbury, TX
