HOW DOES THE BODY-ALINE RELIEVE POSTURAL HYPERTENSION?

To understand how the BODY-ALINE relieves postural hypertension, you must first understand the cause of postural hypertension. Postural hypertension occurs because misaligned postural muscles have to work harder to keep your body upright and functioning throughout the day. This is due to the fact that these muscles are being forced to 'work' at angles they weren't "designed for" because of the postural imbalance. Postural hypertension occurs as a result of the sore, tight and achy overworked muscles. Have you ever felt compelled to rub your neck after hours of slouching? This is because your neck muscles have to work harder to keep your head upright when they are misaligned (as in poor posture). Be realigning your spine and correcting your posture, the BODY-ALINE rebalances your postural muscles so they can perform in the manner they were designed, which eliminates the symptoms of postural hypertension from poor posture.













WHAT ARE THE MACHINE DIMENSIONS?


MACHINE DIMENSIONS:
In standard measurements, the BODY-ALINE machine is 43 inches tall by 26 inches wide and 30 inches long and weighs 41lbs.
-OR-
In metric, the BODY-ALINE machine is 109 cm tall by 66 cm wide and 76 cm inches long and weighs 18.59 kilograms.

SHIPPING BOX DIMENSIONS:
In standard measurements, the dimensions of the BODY-ALINE shipping box are: 22 inches long, 20 inches wide and 9 inches tall. The weight of the BODY-ALINE shipping box (with the BODY-ALINE inside of it): 43lbs.
-OR-
In metric, the dimensions of the BODY-ALINE shipping box are: 55.88 cm long, 50.8 cm wide and 22.86 cm tall. The weight of the BODY-ALINE shipping box (with the BODY-ALINE inside of it): 19.5 kilograms.













HOW MUCH SPACE DO I NEED?

When using the machine, you will need a 4.5 ft by 3.5 ft space. This gives you enough room to lean back and extend your arms to your sides.













DOES IT FOLD-UP FOR STORAGE?

It does not fold-up for storage. The idea is that you should be using the machine consistently and it should therefore always be available. We have found that machines that fold-up and get put away don't get used as much. The BODY-ALINE should become part of your everyday routine.













HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO USE IT & HOW LONG?

We recommend using the BODY-ALINE at least 3-4 times a week for about 15-20 repetitions at a time. By repetitions we mean one entire movement from start to finish. This can usually be done in a minute. The BODY-ALINE can be safely used every day (and multiple times a day) depending on your comfort level and time. The more you use it the faster you will get results. Although, 3-4 days per week is typically all you need to get significant results.













HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

The BODY-ALINE starts working the very first time you use it. You will literally stand taller and feel it working right out of the machine! With consistent use, about 3 - 4 times a week, you can expect to feel better within the first few weeks. And, others will notice the difference as you begin standing taller and look a little leaner. With this improved posture, comes pain relief. Most people achieve significant body realignment within the first 6 weeks and total body realignment within the 1-3 months.













IS IT REALLY A RISK-FREE TRIAL? WHATS THE CATCH?

Yes. This offer is as good as it seems and there is NO catch. Try your BODY-ALINE risk free for 30 days and if you're not satisfied, we'll refund your money AND pay the return shipping. It's not one of those trials that claims to be 'Risk-Free" only to have you pay for return shipping. That's not risk free. The idea behind this incredible offer is, of course, to get you to experience the machine firsthand and become a believer. We understand that every posture correction product claims "We're the best!" so you may not know what to believe from advertising. The BODY-ALINE is the fastest and most convenient method of posture correction on the market. Do the research and you will find we are the only company that stands behind our posture correction product 100% with this level of commitment - for no the other reason than the fact it really works. Understand, if the BODY-ALINE didn't work it would cost our company a lot of money in returns from dissatisfied customers. For example, our total cost on a returned item ranges from $45-$85 (depending on your location) because we pay the cost of shipping to and from you. This amount can add up fast for a product that has a lot of dissatisfied customers who return it. In fact, a company with an ineffective product CAN NOT and WILL NOT offer a risk free trial w/ free return shipping. That's why no one does. We can.













HOW DO I RETURN IT IF I DON'T WANT IT?

IF YOU WISH TO RETURN IT: The complete unit must be disassembled & returned within original packaging and in reasonable condition. The box must be postmarked within 30 days of it's arrival date (this is verified through Fed-Ex tracking). Once we received & inspect the unit, here's what happens next:

- If you paid in full, you will be refunded electronically through your Credit Card or Paypal account in the amount of the full purchase price AND you'll be sent a check for the cost of return shipping (the amount of this check is determined by how much it cost us to send it to you). Please allow 2-5 business days for delivery of check. PLEASE NOTE: The amount of return shipping reimbursement is based on the exact amount we paid to ship the unit to you - NOT the amount you paid to have it shipped back. Sometimes there is a difference.

- If you chose the payment plan, we will refund any payments received electronically through your Credit Card or Paypal account, cancel your payment plan (so you won't be charged any further payments) AND you'll be sent a check for the cost of return shipping (the amount of this check is determined by how much it cost us to send it to you). Please allow 3-5 business days for delivery of check.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE TO ASSEMBLE?

Less time than you might think. Depending on the level of experience you have in assembling products, the exact time can vary anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. It's basically just part insertion, with 1 bolt for each leg, another bolt for the spine, a bolt for each arm and two pins into each arm. You can't get much easier than that, and all the tools you need are included.













IS IT AVAILABLE IN RETAIL STORES?

No. It is not available on the shelf in retail stores - just online. We are hoping to debut the BODY-ALINE on the shelf of retail outlets sometime in 2016.













DOES IT COME WITH ASSEMBLY & USAGE INSTRUCTIONS?

Yes. Everything you need to know is contained in the 14 page User Guide included with every machine. It is complete with pictures, step-by-step usage instructions, warranty & guarantee information.













DOES IT HAVE A WARRANTY?

Yes. The BODY-ALINE comes equipped with a 1 year warranty on parts and craftsmanship, which is the industry standard for this type of fitness equipment. If you have any problems related to the performance, durability and construction of your machine within the first year, simply notify us and we will rectify the situation as soon as possible.













WHAT BENEFIT IS THE FOAM ROLLER MASSAGE?

The foam roller provides a therapeutic massage to the muscles that run along each side of your spine. When you have poor posture, these muscles (the spinal erectors) become misaligned & will have a tendency to bind & knot-up at various places (stress points). The action of the foam roller traveling up & down your spine will loosen these muscles & "rub-out" any knotting - giving you greater comfort & pain relief.













DO YOU HAVE STUDIES TO VALIDATE YOUR CLAIMS?

The BODY-ALINE has undergone clinical EMG (Electromyogram) muscle testing which has proven it effective in retraining all of the major postural muscles. A 2005 Customer survey revealed that 9 out of 10 users claim they can feel it working after just one use. And 87% of customers surveyed report significant pain relief and satisfactory body realignment within the first 6 weeks. The effectiveness of the BODY-ALINE has been tested and it will work for you. By strengthening your back & aligning your spine in one easy motion, it treats the root cause of most pain. That's why we call it "The Common Sense Approach to Pain."













WHAT IS THE EXACT HEIGHT & SIZE RANGE OF PEOPLE WHO CAN USE THE MACHINE?

The BODY-ALINE supports up to 350 lbs and is suitable for adolescent age children, ages 12 and up, who are at least 4 feet 9 inches tall and adults as tall as 6 feet 6 inches.













IS IT SAFE FOR CHILDREN?

The BODY-ALINE is safe and effective for children 12 years and up who are at least 4' 9" tall.













HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR DELIVERY?

The BODY-ALINE ships within 4-6 business days. You will be emailed a FedEX tracking number when it does. This allows you to track your package in transit.













DO DOCTORS USE/RECOMMEND IT?

The BODY-ALINE is prescribed by doctors & used by chiropractors & physical therapists worldwide to restore good posture in the treatment of back/neck pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis & osteoporosis. Health insurance companies realize the medical value of good posture as they routinely cover the cost of the BODY-ALINE treatment for patients receiving care inside doctor's offices. In other words, insurance companies pay for this treatment because they know it saves them money in the long run: preventive medicine.













WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS WOULD PREVENT ME FROM USING IT?

We do not recommend using the BODY-ALINE if you have severe osteoporosis, cancer of the bone or meta-static cancer, congenital spine deformity, instability or fracture of the spine, worsening of any pain or condition, spinal cord injury, or any severe discomfort while performing the exercise. Other than these specific conditions, if you, like most people, can comfortably move your body through the range of motion required by the exercise, then you will benefit.













HOW DOES IT REDUCE BACK PAIN?

The BODY-ALINE reduces back pain with a 4-fold approach: First, the BODY-ALINE strengthens the muscles that run along each side of your spine. When these muscles become stronger, they provide more support for the entire spine, which takes pressure off your vertebrae and relieves pain. The shock absorbing effect of the extra muscle also reduces the risk of a sudden injury.

Secondly, the BODY-ALINE retrains your postural muscles to realign your spine, which improves posture. When your spine is properly aligned, it maintains its natural curve - which is how it was meant to function. When all the vertebrae of your spine are aligned and working properly; pain, pressure and risk of injury are greatly reduced.

Third, the BODY-ALINE also provides a therapeutic massage to the muscles that run along each side of your spine. When these muscles receive a "rub down" from the contoured foam roller, they become loose & pliable - which is how they were meant to function. Often times, knots & binding within your back muscles are a great source of pain & discomfort. But when they are smoothed over, the pain and tightness usually goes away.

Fourth, consistent use of the BODY-ALINE also raises your postural awareness. This means you will begin to recognize the times when you are slouching and, almost instinctively, stand or sit-up straighter. By maintaining normal upright posture at all times, you will enhance your overall comfort level while taking stress of your spine.

HOW DOES IT REDUCE NECK PAIN?

The BODY-ALINE reduces your neck pain by aligning your entire spine. Remember, your neck is part of your spine too, so when your spine is aligned, your head will move back into proper alignment. Never discount the importance of neck alignment for pain relief. Most people don't realize the human head weighs about 10 lbs (roughly the weight of a bowling ball) and for every inch it moves forward (out of alignment) - it nearly doubles the stress/load on your spine. That's why after a long day of driving or at the computer, you may find yourself rubbing the base of your neck for relief. This is where most of the load/stress from "forward-head" posture is felt. Unfortunately, over time, this is also where a mound may start to form - if the condition is left untreated. By aligning your spine, you align your head, which takes pressure of your neck and allows you to sit for longer periods of time without pain or discomfort.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













HOW DOES IT HELP OSTEOPOROSIS?

The BODY-ALINE reduces the symptoms of degenerative diseases, such as osteoporosis, by aligning your entire body. Osteoporosis is characterized by the loss of calcium and bone tissue in the bones, which makes them susceptible to fracturing (breaking). When you have poor posture, the load & stress on your spine & joints increases greatly. When this abnormal load/stress is combined with bone degeneration, it increases the chances for these bones to start breaking. For example, when the muscles that run along each side of your spine are strengthened by the BODY-ALINE. These muscles will then provide more support to the spine, which takes stress off the spine. Less stress on the spine, means less chance of breakage. If osteoporosis is a concern of yours, then maintaining proper body alignment should be one of your first priorities, along with regular exercise & supplementation.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













HOW DOES IT HELP ARTHRITIS?

The BODY-ALINE reduces the symptoms of degenerative diseases, such as arthritis, by aligning your entire body. The extra pressure on your joints, from altered posture, changes the mechanical functioning of your joints, resulting in abnormal strain of muscles, ligaments & bones, which causes the joints to deteriorate faster than normal. This can result in degenerative joint disease or arthritis in joints. When your joints are placed in optimal positions, such as perfect alignment, load & stress are greatly reduced & blood circulation is increased, which enhances joint lubrication. This slows down the onset of arthritis or provides symptomatic relief if arthritis has already set-in.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













HOW DOES IT HELP CHRONIC FATIGUE?

The BODY-ALINE reduces the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue by aligning your entire body. Since poor posture affects the mechanical functioning of your entire body, it can be a major contributor to Chronic Fatigue. Stresses of poor posture set up muscle imbalances that cause joints and ligaments to be taxed beyond their normal ranges. The extra stress placed on these muscles, ligaments and joints can affect your energy in many ways: Psychologically, the constant feeling of pain from these stresses can decrease your motivation for physical activity and affect your overall attitude about life. Once you become inactive from pain, it is more difficult to become active again. This is why you can feel chronically fatigued, without much activity. Physically, these extra stresses can require your body to allocate more energy & nutrients to these areas, taking away energy & nutrients from other places on the body. By aligning your body, the BODY-ALINE can take these stress factors out of the equation, which can greatly reduce chronic fatigue.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













HOW DOES IT HELP CARPAL TUNNEL?

The BODY-ALINE reduces the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by aligning your entire body, including your wrists and hands. The best-known ways to prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome include taking breaks from repetitive tasks, doing stretching & strengthening exercises for the wrists and hands, along with adopting and practicing proper posture while at the computer/workstation - with particular importance placed on proper wrist alignment. The BODY-ALINE retrains your postural muscles so your body maintains proper alignment at all times, which means you'll have good posture at the computer/workstation.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













HOW DOES IT HELP FYBROMYALGIA?

The BODY-ALINE reduces the symptoms of Fibromyalgia by aligning your entire body. Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain, stiffness and fatigue for unknown reasons. Therefore, the recommendations for treatment & prevention can vary greatly. Since poor posture affects the mechanical functioning of your entire body, we believe it is also a major, yet unheralded, contributor to fibromyalgia. Stresses of poor posture will set up muscle imbalances that cause joints and ligaments to be taxed beyond their normal ranges. The extra stress placed on these muscles, ligaments and joints becomes a vicious cycle, as stress continues to feed on more stress and become worse as time goes on. By aligning your body, the BODY-ALINE can take these misalignment stress factors out of the equation, which can reduce the symptoms of Fibromyalgia.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













DOES IT HELP SCOLIOSIS?

The amount, in which the BODY-ALINE can help, if you have scoliosis, depends on the severity of your condition. If your scoliosis is slight, in most cases, the BODY-ALINE will aid in the realignment process. If your scoliosis is advanced, we recommend that you see your doctor for additional treatment. In either case, stronger back muscles will usually help to support a even a grossly misaligned spine.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis please consult your physician.













IS IT SAFE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN?

YES. But, you should check with your physician before starting any exercise program- especially if you're pregnant. The BODY-ALINE, unlike many other posture products that place you into awkward positions, is great for pregnant women because you are seated in a comfortable, upright position. There should be no restrictions during the 1st & 2nd trimesters, and there may be some need to modify foot & leg positions, and possibly tension, during the last trimester. Also, if you use the BODY-ALINE before pregnancy, the common lower back pains you get from pregnancy weight gain will be reduced.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













I HAVE HEARD THAT STRONG AB MUSCLES HELP POSTURE, IS THIS TRUE?

It is true that a strong core will help support the spine. In fact, without the muscles around your midsection, you wouldn't be able to sit-up or stand. However, few things will ruin your posture faster than strengthening your abdominal muscles, without strengthening your back muscles, in order to counterbalance. To appreciate this concept, we invite you to do a round of sit-ups (20-30) on your floor and then stand-up. You'll feel the dramatic effect of your posture being drawn forward by your tightened abdominal muscles. Now, think about what happens, over time, if you do sit-ups exclusively, without working your back. Your posture is most certainly going to migrate forward at an alarming rate. We at BODY-ALINE believe the greatest pain relieving benefit of strengthening the core is gained from strengthening the back, which draws the spine rearward. If you are training your abs, continue to do so. But, you most certainly need to strengthen your back muscles at the same time to avoid creating a muscle imbalance that will ruin your posture.













IF I JUST HAD BACK SURGERY, SHOULD I USE IT?

We strongly suggest that you see your doctor before starting ANY exercise program - especially after surgery. Once you get the OK, we recommend using the BODY-ALINE on lighter than normal tension, given the tender nature of the back after surgery. As you build strength in your back, then you may increase tension. When your ready, making your back stronger is usually a priority after surgery because it will increase blood flow to accelerate recovery, protect & support your spine & prevent further injury.

*The above explanation provides general information related to the treatment & prevention of above condition. It is not a professional diagnosis of any condition you may have. If you are seeking a medical diagnosis, please consult your physician.













IF I'VE NEVER EXERCISED BEFORE, CAN I STILL USE IT?

You certainly can. The BODY-ALINE was meant for people who don't (or do) exercise on a regular basis. It's easy to use and the range of motion needed will increase, as you get stronger and more flexible. After the first couple sessions, using the BODY-ALINE correctly will become second nature. As a matter of fact, the BODY-ALINE usually works faster for people who don't exercise because the BODY-ALINE doesn't have to correct the imbalance of postural muscles made stronger from working out with incorrect form. Trained muscles tend to "hold on" to their misalignments longer than untrained muscles. So, if you haven't been exercising you should see & feel faster results. And, if you haven't been exercising, the BODY-ALINE is at least one exercise you should be doing on a consistent basis. For the minimal amount of time necessary to achieve good posture, you can derive serious health benefits.













WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO IMPROVE MY RESULTS?

Your back & body will begin feeling better just by using the BODY-ALINE. Of course, proper rest, nutrition and consistent exercise (with proper form) will get you faster results. Bear in mind, while exercising, that any exercises performed with improper technique can degrade your posture & hurt your back. As a general rule of thumb, try to maintain proper posture while performing any exercise movement, which means maintaining the natural curve in your back, with chin up, chest out & shoulders back - at all times. Also, throughout life you should be more mindful of your posture. The BODY-ALINE will help in this way because once your posture starts realigning then slouching will feel quite unnatural.













IF I AM DISABLED, CAN I STILL USE IT?

YES. The convenience and ease-of-use of the BODY-ALINE treatment means that almost anyone can use it. If you are disabled, but can sit-up and move your arms though the range of motion required by the BODY-ALINE, then it will benefit you. Even if you don't have perfect form at the beginning, keep trying and you will get better. As you get better, the results will accelerate. To further address your concerns, you should know disabled people have already approved the BODY-ALINE by recognizing it as an "Olmstead Approved Product for the Disabled."













WHAT MAKES THE BODY-ALINE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER POSTURE PRODUCTS?

The BODY-ALINE is the only posture product on the market today that strengthens your back and aligns your spine in one easy motion. Period. Understand, most posture products don't realign postural muscles. The ones that do, like instructional books and videos, require lots more time, energy & know-how than the BODY-ALINE. Compare the time investment of using a machine for about 5 minutes a week versus instructional routines that require 30-45 minutes a week. There is no comparison.
