    ok, let me tell you, at first owww, the pain wasn't the worst I have ever felt but boy did it hurt!

    I was sitting there and all of a sudden I was making myself sweat, I took a little break then came back more determined thn ever and finished up my legs and I guess that I was just used to the pain by then because the pain wasn't half as bad.

    I should have mentioned this as well - the tauter you can pull your skin the better, because part of the pain comes from the tugging - and if your skin is pulled tight, the tugging is reduced.

    But, I'm glad to hear it got better. Personally I think the worst part is the expectation of the pain, and once you recognize it, it's not so bad. Although I still don't like doing the area just behind my ankle bone on the outside, somehow that's the most sensitive.

      Do the nerves actually get confused? Does it lessen the pain? My problem was that it hurt so bad, I couldnt continue. Mine doesnt have the rollers.
