On the urging of a.parent of one of my piano students, I purchased a Cellerciser from Dave Hall In December of 2007. She just bought one and said that it promotes good health by mild stimulation of all organs of the body.
I read a book Dave gave me about the value of rebounding and watched his DVD and studied the page of exercises. I started the beginning exercises and gradually added the ones I felt would be most beneficial to me.
In July of 2008 I turned 70 yrs. old. I have enjoyed good health all my life, but lead a rather sedentary life style of teaching piano lessons five days a week. I had tried going to a health spa and doing aerobic exercise classes, but I really didn't like either of them. Exercising at my own pace and in my own home really appealed to me.
This year I suffered from a very serious virus infection and had CT scans to try to
diagnose severe back pain and illness. I had massages and chiropractic treatments to no avail. My blood work and hospital check ups showed all to be fine with my internal organs. Throughout all the problems, I kept on doing my exercises for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes at night.
I have a timer set near me and change every minute to jump the rope (without a rope) shuffling, offing cross hands, sitting and bounding, etc. The last 5 minutes I hold a 5 lb. weight in each hand and do various movements with them. I also spend a minute exercising my eyes.
I have gone to a cranial chiropractor and had my spine adjusted and head aligned with my spine. He has dismissed me and said all adjustments are holding.
Also, in January X-rays of my neck showed what appeared to be severe osteoporosis. After six months, I had a bone scan of my spine and hips that reported I only have a mild case of osteoporosis. I know that exercise is beneficial to that condition and feel it has helped me a great deal.
All pain is gone, and I feel wonderful. People say I look very healthy, and I have lots of energy. I take care of flowers and mow a very large lawn every week in the summer. I teach piano to 30 students and play the piano and organ myself. Life is good.
