Question
My name is Mike. I am 37 years old and for the past 12 years have a severe type of  Primary Progressive MS. I would really like to hear what you think about Panasonic EP-MA70. Thank you.

Answer
Hi Mike,

I am sorry you didn't receive my earlier response to your question.

I am not familiar with the device you mention.  However, I do know that vibration, shaking and jostling help MS more than slow, gliding types of massage do.  So, if that device provides a type of shaking, vibrating movement it may be worth a try.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for asking.
