Testimonials: 

 I have lower back pain and sciatica that occasionally is quite uncomfortable. After receiving my Vacupractor, it took a little experimentation to achieve the maximum benefit. I fill the tub with a little hot water and soak the Vacupractor in it to get it warm before I use it, then sprinkle warm water on it to achieve the vacuum required. Usually my back pain is worst in the afternoon. Several times a week I use the Vacupractor for 20 minutes and it really works. When I am laying on the Vacupractor, I get so comfortable that I often fall asleep. It’s a relief to know that if I start to hurt, I can lay on the Vacupractor and get immediate pain relief. Yes, it takes a little effort to get it ready to use, but the results are worth it!

J. Miller Omak, Washington

I wanted to write to you to tell you how impressed I am with the VacuPractor product. As an aging Baby Boomer, I try to stay in shape with an exercise program that mixes walking, hiking, and bike riding. All of which cause compression of my spine and subsequent lower back pain. After ordering my Vacupractor, I decided to try your ‘spinal hygiene’ concept, so when I finish my exercise routine (I am warm and sweaty, which gives me great contact on the device), I use the product for 10 to 15 minutes to relieve the lower back tension built up from exercising. It is remarkable how well the Vacupractor works. I am amazed how a simple $60 device works to relive lower back pain. Consider me a very happy customer. Feel free to use my experience as a testimonial for this great product. Sincerely Yours, Rex Metcalf Beaverton, Oregon

My husband broke his back in the mid 80′s as the result of a car accident. The break went undiagnosed until late 2010. Chiropractic helped, but he was still in pain between visits. He was unable to sit or stand for any reasonable length of time without experiencing back pain. Sleeping was even difficult, because he could not get comfortable. After three days of using the VacuPractor his pain was relieved! Thank you VacuPractor! Sherri B from Ohio. ________________________________________

I have tried the VacuPractor two nights ago. the results from my test were immediate… Where do I send the check…? After years and years of reoccurring lower back pain, this is the only product that I have found to provide pain relief immediately. As I mention over the phone this latest episode of nagging pain in my lower back has lasted about a month… now thanks to the VacuPractor , I am free of pain … and know that whenever I get the hint of lower back pain – all I need to do is use the VacuPractor.

Thank you

After a car accident in 1992, I started to suffer from neck and back pain. I hit the windshield head on, as I was not wearing my seatbelt. I have had pain off and on but as time has passed, the pain seems to progress with varying intensity. I started using VacuPractor recently and have noticed a change in the level of pain. I spent many years with these problems, so I assume it will take some time to alleviate the pain (to which I have become accustomed). After a hot shower I usually find a quiet place on the floor and rest. Seems that this is the only thing that has worked after all these years, considering I DO NOT like to take pain medication…Thank you! I am in the process of spreading the word…

I am a retired police officer with a career that lasted over 31 years. Like most cops I ended my career with a lot of pack pain that required multi-weekly visits for treatment. Several months ago Paul lent me a VacuPractor and asked me to try it out. I was very sceptical at first, but after using the VacuPractor for a couple of weeks I found that I was in much less pain. I am no sleeping all night without the aid of pain medication. I am truly impressed with this product, it flat out works. Thanks Paul

Quick update: My wife Blanca and I have both used the VacuPractor and it’s great! She felt the difference after the first time she used it! We’ll definitely be telling our friends and family about it. We know so many people that deal with back pain that it’s great we can tell them of a low-cost solution that works. 

Thanks!!!

Tuesday  when I woke up, I couldn’t stand up straight. From my tailbone down my left leg it hurt so bad. I wanted to go to the Chiropractor but it hurt too bad. Wednesday I went to the YMCA and sat in the whirlpool several times which didn’t help. Later while shopping pain shot down my right leg like a bolt of lightning I almost fell to the floor.Thursday I went to my chiropractor who told me I had a severe pinched nerve. I kept ice on my lower back but it wasn’t helping. Saturday I had to go to the store. As I shuffled in I ran into a friend. She took me to her house and loaned me her VacuPractor. After the first use I got so much relief I could stand up straight! I went to every other day for a week. When pain like that happens at age 62 you think ‘Oh no this is it’. 

 Thanks to the VacuPractor I’m pain free.

I always got lower back stress and stiffness the day after pushing the lawn mower. Now I get on my VacuPractor right after mowing and get no pain or stiffness the next day.

“[the VacuPractor is] amazing, my pain goes away right away, no waiting.”

  - Leona Horstman

________________________________________

Two years ago, I had lower back problems, due to running many miles and not exercising my back muscles. I spent seven weeks at physical therapy and it did help reduce the discomfort but it did not alleviate it altogether. Once I was released from physical therapy, I was instructed to continue to do the suggested exercises to keep the back strong, but it was not a cure for my lower back problem. Last October, a friend of mine let me borrow the VacuPractor, which I used two to three days a week. In order to determine if the Vacupractor was working, I stopped performing the exercises I was doing three days a week. I have not used the Vacupractor since December and have not had any problems at all. The discomfort I had felt for almost two years, has disappeared and have been running, lifting weights and doing work around the house pain free.

Thank you for the Vacupractor; it works!!

“I can’t believe how much my back pain was effecting my attitude and personality… [The VacuPractor] is amazing. It feels so nice pulling down on my back when I’m using it and my back feels… well it doesn’t feel anything! I’ve had daily back pain for so long that it’s taking [time getting accustomed] to not having [the pain] there…….” - Brad J. ________________________________________

“Just a note to let you know that I have used the [Vacupractor] twice now. Both times it was right after I got home from work, and both times I have slept through the entire night (an unusual thing for me) and got up without the normal creaking, grinding and pain! I am going to continue to use it!.. Plus my [son] felt better after one use! ”

- Mike M.

________________________________________

“I never have back pain, but I twisted or lifted wrong the other day, and I decided to try the VacuPractor on a recommendation from a friend. It worked! Shortly after I used it, I felt better already. I had some slight pain in my lower back the next morning, so I used the VacuPractor again. In two days, my lower back pain was gone. … Before, it would have taken me a week of sore muscles and pain to recover from a a physically-demanding chore that I did. But with the VacuPractor, my pain is gone in a quick session of using it. …Three times this month that the VacuPractor has saved me from lower back pain. I, for one, will definitely keep my hands on the VacuPractor to use whenever I overstretch or overdo it on any activities. I am a believer and want to spread the word to all my friends and family.”

“………at first I used my VacuPractor two or three times a week, I’ve cut that back to once a week or as needed. I’m 72 years old and am still able to weed my flower beds without having to run to the chiropractor.”  

- Dolores N.

“Having used the VacuPractor has helped me sleep without the searing pain that used to run down both my outer thighs from hip to knee. This pain would start about two hours after going to sleep. Then I would be awake the rest of the night. Also my lower back and across my hips would tighten up so I couldn’t sleep on my sides at all. Since using the VacuPractor, I am able to sleep on my sides without pain. I find myself doing more things during the day, like watering my plants, cleaning the house, swimming class, and knowing if I hurt I can use the VacuPractor and get right back to my life. I have told others about the VacuPractor, and they are all going to order one. Thank you for telling me about the VacuPractor. It has helped me very much.”

“Just a note to let you know how pleased I am with the results I have received from my VacuPractor. I have been plagued most of my life with lower back problems, unable to do things that require being on my feet or sitting for long periods of time. By days end sometimes my back felt as if I couldn’t move because of stiffness and pain. Each time I have used the VacuPractor I have gotten instant relief. I would never be without the VacuPractor and recommend anyone with stiffness, soreness and lower back pain give the VacuPractor a try”.

Risks and challenges

Risks - you think our Campaign is not slick and shiny!

Well - we did this Campaign without some slick Design firm! So if you think the video is good - not great - you are right! But our white board Video is from a REAL user - who did it for $40.

The Voice on the Demo video - real user! First take was my wife's voice, but another user thought she could do a better job and sent me her take - so we are using it!

The Photos of Dr Stacey Natio - well her photographer friend took the photos for free.

The Demo animation - design student in school - free
Logo - Free too

Photos for book - you guessed it - did it on the cheep! Gave her a free VacuPractor for her husband!

If you have a question, comment or suggestion please email me directly at paul.hagen@vacupractor.com

My goal from the beginning, help 1 Million people. I would love to enter a stretch goal and help those 1 million people all here on KickStarter.
