Thank you so much for mentioning Kaatsu a month or so ago. I researched it when I saw your post and found it so interesting, I bought a C-3, which is not cheap but has turned out to be a great investment one month in. I use it regularly. So far, noticing increase in strength, circulation in hands and feet a lot better, sleeping more soundly (esp on the days I use it), and muscle tone is improving.

Based on the price, it's definitely not something people should buy unless they know they are going to use it regularly.

I was wondering if you would please submit feedback on your experience with it so far? I will do the same and have created a quick new page on EC in the remedies section, which I will expand on when I have some time. I would love to know what you do with it: exercises, such as the 3-point series on arms and legs, weight training?

And what settings do you use: cycle or training or both? What benefits have you noticed so far?

I'm doing extensive research and training on it ... reading all the literature, taking the certification course, and watching the videos. Also doing lots of experimentation with movement and weights with them on.

Grateful that you mentioned it. This is right up my alley. Thank you so much!

Hi Jj,

I was wondering the same thing when I bought mine! I just checked my records and I bought a Kaatsu C3 at the end of December, 2021. It's still working beautifully. I don't use it every day. Hopefully, it will last a good number of years. I bought a 2-year warranty, by the way, for that very reason. Will post again if the device fails so people know.

Thank you for your reply and update. Yes, I can imagine they (KAATSU) would react that way! But from what I understand and have seen, it can work well without exercise and muscle contraction. Glad to hear you think it has strengthened your heart.

Does your wife put the KAATSU arm bands on for you? I am wondering how difficult people are finding it to get them up near the armpit and tightened to the right pressure. The leg straps are a lot easier to tighten on your own.

What about Bill Munro's inhalation method or H202 drops in distilled water for the PSA issue? Did you ever try either protocol?

I think we have some interesting posts in the prostate section with other remedies, though I am sure you have checked them all out at this point.

Hi Deidre, I'm hoping you have information on this or can point me in the right direction. I contacted the company and the reply was simply to tell me it has a one year warranty and also the person replying said they've had theirs for 2 years:

Re Kaatsu C3 How long on average does the device last?- I would just be using it half an hour to an hour a day., ( I know it's a one-year warranty but wanting to know what the track record is... Buying one of these every year or two would get expensive.)
