babyBelle® bodybuffer benefits for physical therapy, muscle recovery/wellness
Developed by doctors, a medaled triathlete, M.I.T. and Harvard trained engineers for professional and home use. FDA registered and listed 510(k) Class 1 exempt device.
The original, award winning bodybuffer.
BelleCore bodybuffers’ multidirectional oscillating shear forces combined with pulsed vibration result in a significant increase in tissue perfusion/temperature after only 15 seconds of treatment. This short video using Thermal imaging shows how this change in blood flow and temperature in the outer thigh persists and spreads after treatment has ended.
Building on present knowledge of the interplay of pain and mechanoreceptors in muscles and joints, BelleCore has taken mechanical massage to the next level, enabling practitioners, therapists and individuals to get deeper faster due to better tolerance. Unlike the usual back and forth or bi-directional movement of most oscillating or vibrating devices, the multidirectional oscillating and vibratory shear forces of the bodybuffer are less irritating and even pacify the pain and mechanoreceptors omnipresent in every muscle, ligament and joint.
The eccentric orbital movement and the specific surface area of the bodybuffer are perceived to be gentler, thus more readily accepted on soft and connective tissue, allowing a more intense, vigorous massage which assists joint and connective tissue healing: Injured joints/tissues are usually swollen and therefore ‘stiff’ and immobile. The bodybuffers’ multidirectional oscillating and vibratory shear forces stimulate/manipulate the pain and mechanoreceptors, thereby reducing pain perception. The bodybuffers help to reduce soft tissue edema associated with inflammatory processes, re-mobilize tissue layers, thus allow an earlier return to physiologic function no longer compromised by pain, edema or tissue adhesion/ scarring.
Ergonomic design, powerful enough for professional use, easy and safe for individual home use
Smaller foot print than most oscillators allows for more targeted therapies (IT band, plantar fasciitis, shin splints)
Larger surface area than most vibrating devices results in better tolerance (pacification of pain and mechanoreceptors)
Multi-directional shear forces provide easy and effective myofascial release without additional manipulation
Faster, more effective and longer lasting increase in perfusion/warm up of tissues
FDA registered and listed as 510(k) Class 1 exempt device, CE certified, universal motor, detachable 9 foot cord.
How quickly can I expect results from bodybuffing?
Immediately. You’ll relieve sore muscles and exfoliate skin to a smoother texture with just one bodybuffing session. Powerful vibration massage combined with a percussion stroke helps increase blood flow, lymphatic drainage and microcirculation while edema/swelling decreases.
How many minutes should I bodybuff in one area?
We recommendcontinuously movingthe bodybuffer over each targeted area for 3-5 minutes. Do not spend more than 10 minutes on any one region during a session.
Do I have to keep bodybuffing to maintain the results?
If you’ve achieved the look and feel you want, you may decrease your bodybuffing frequency to once a day or every other day or so. However, if you stop completely, you may notice problems returning. Many users find they want to keep bodybuffing as part of their daily health/wellness regimen. The benefits are just too good to give up! It is recommended that you incorporate a healthy diet and exercise regime to get the true benefits of bodybuffing.
When I bodybuff my skin turns red and feels a little itchy. Is that normal?
Yes. Bodybuffing increases blood flow to the treated area. This often causes the skin to temporarily redden and can provoke a mild itching sensation. These effects are not harmful and will subside soon after your bodybuffing session. Apply a moisturizer or hydrating cream after buffing.
Can I bodybuff while dressed?
No. Our devices are to be used on bare, dry, cool skin – preferably before a shower and before bed. Keep loose hair, clothing and jewelry well clear of spinning pad.
Are there any areas I shouldn’t use the bodybuffer on?
Yes. Never use the device on the head, face, back or front of neck/cervical spine, inner arms or breasts.
Can I bodybuff if I am pregnant?
Pregnant women should first consult a physician before using the bodybuffer. It may be acceptable to bodybuff your lower legs, feet and arms, but never the trunk/torso or anywhere near the belly.
Can I bodybuff if I take blood-thinning drugs?
No. If you take drugs like Coumadin or Lovenox, you should not use the bodybuffer. If you take aspirin regularly, you should try bodybuffing a small area to see if you experience bruising. If not, you may bodybuff with caution.
Can I bodybuff my feet?
Yes. You can use our devices on healthy feet.
Can I bodybuff when I have a tan?
Yes. However, if you are sunburned you must not bodybuff until your skin has fully healed.
Why do I have to use the cream after buffing?
The bodybuffer is a powerful exfoliation device. Your skin may become very dry if you don’t apply a hydrating cream after treating. We designed BelleCore Hydrating Cream to complement and enhance the beneficial effects of our bodybuffers.
How can I clean the bonnet on my bodybuffer?
Natural skin oils and cells that shed during exfoliation will eventually soil the bonnet. Simply remove the bonnet, hand-wash it using a gentle detergent and let it dry before slipping it back on your bodybuffer. Worn-out bonnets should be replaced. Fresh bonnets are available for purchase in our online shop.
Do BelleCore bodybuffers come with a warranty?
Yes. We want you to love your bodybuffing experience. When you purchase a bodybuffer from BelleCore.com it is covered by a one year warranty against mechanical failure.
Where can I purchase my BelleCore bodybuffer?
The simplest way to buy is through our online shop. Additional packs of washable terrycloth bonnets also available.
