From customer input, we discovered that very few Infratonic 9 owners use the timer function, and that an equal number get confused by the extra timer and alarm choices on the front panel. Most preferred that it simply run continuously whenever it is switched on. If you like the built in timer, we suggest you hang on for your Infratonic 9. For those who apply the CHI Palm in client rooms, most prefer not to have the therapy stop while the client is unattended because the client sometimes feels neglected. Where you want to provide a specific amount of time, like 5 minutes to each several points on your body, we suggest a separate timer or smart phone that Cana be set up to beep at intervals to remind your to move to the next point. A wide variety of timers are available to serve different strategies.
