The Joovv is up and running!
Unboxing/ Set up
Very easy to set up… well packaged, super high quality machine. I’m relieved that it doesn’t look like something I cobbled together in the basement. From the photos online, I expected it to be silver, but it’s white. White goes better with the walls anyway! There was a little Joovv branded timer with a handy magnet on the back that I didn’t expect. Bonus! The set-up literally took 5 minutes with no tools needed. You screw the stainless tension lines to the top threaded posts, connect a carabiner to the lines, slide the mounting peg over the top of the door and clip the pulley carabiner to that and clip the rope carabiner to the tension line carabiner. Easy Peasy. What’s the pulley for, you may ask? Well, it is so you can use the Joovv at different heights to treat your whole body. I may swap the black pulley rope for a white one just so it doesn’t look so out of place. My eye goes right to the rope and it’s driving me crazy aesthetically. Don’t worry, I’ll get over it 🙂 Also, with the pulley contraption in place, I’m starting to see the benefit of the larger Joovv Max and not having to adjust height. I still can’t get over the price difference between Joovv Original and Max, though. For now, my power cable routing looks a little temporary and awkward, but I’ll eventually find a more permanent place for the Joovv and mount it to a wall with a more streamlined layout. That is, if results come in as expected.
Holy F the Joovv is bright! Much, much brighter than I expected. It has a nice warming effect on the body as well. There are little fans that you can hear whirring inside the case to keep the machine cool. The digital timer they included with the Joovv works great and the display is easy to see. I just did a 5 min treatment sans shirt… and pants. I have some sinus congestion right now from all the crazy weather fluctuations. Maybe the Joovv will give some relief? Treatment results are supposed to come after 8-12 weeks of sessions, but fingers crossed to see positive results sooner. Today was a test, only a test.
1st Actual Use
Now I’ve had time to read through the Starter Guide. Based on my goals, I did a full body treatment. 7 min front, 7 min back, 3 min each side. I listened to a Ben Greenfield podcast to kill the time. While Joovving, I was also thinking of different ways to multitask and get more benefit. I did some alternate nostril breathing when my back was being treated, then box breathing when my frontal regions were in the light. I may also incorporate an earthing mat to stand on during treatment. I also took some “before” pics today so I can measure physical results. I’ll keep those to myself unless there is some dramatic improvement.
