I admit, I am a sucker for most things that claim to relax, recharge, heal, etc. I love, love, love massages. When we were in Moab last fall we received samples of Sore No More & I had to by a tube before we left Moab. In Ashville, I had a demo of the eucalyptus oil & I had to buy a bottle of it as soon as we got home. BTW, I am planning on doing a follow up review on this soon since I have been using it religiously for 8 weeks now.
So when I read about Vila in the latest Women's Running Magazine I just had to have one! It was only $40 & a typical acupuncture session runs $75 so if it works it is a bargain. I don't expect it to give all the benefits of an acupuncture session but I am hoping that it will help keep my back happy.
I laid down on it tonight for about 10 minutes. It wasn't painful but it did leave a bunch of little holes in my back & left it very red. I will try it out for awhile before I give any more feedback on it.
