|The Acupuncture Slimming Belt is an abdominal massage unit that combines heat, Chinese acupuncture therapy, and sports massage. The result of using this machine with regularity is a firmer, slimmer, healthier midsection. The Acupuncture Slimming Belt is supposed to replace abdominal exercise to an extent and can take care of a number of other problems from men’s sexual issues to PMS symptoms in women while it reduces belly fat, improves digestion, and relaxes the abdomen. The settings on this belt are adjustable and reportedly the right mix of massage and heat not only improves the abs but creates a pleasantly relaxing sensation on the midsection.|
The belt itself is comprised of a dome shaped massage unit that houses the batteries and control panel as well. It attaches to your waist with an elastic band that can be adjusted for smaller waist sizes or used with an extender to fit larger waists. It is too large to go unnoticed under clothing but because it is fairly small the Acupuncture Slimming Belt is portable for use on the go. It runs on batteries so there is no need to stay tethered to an outlet. There is no indication, however, of how long the machine will run before having to change the batteries.
|Information About Manufacturer|
|Luster International Trading Ltd. is the distributor for this product, however it is unclear if they are the most direct source for purchasing the belt. Since Luster is a wholesaler you will need to go through a retail source to purchase this belt. Luster International Trading Ltd. sells a wide range of products, from fitness and health items to household and hygiene products. Their official website states they were formed in the Virgin Islands however other sources locate this company in China.|
The manufacturer has not obtained FDA clearance for the Acupuncture Slimming Belt at this time. There is no 3rd party clinical evidence backing the claims of the retailers and advertisements either. This may be in part because Luster is located outside of the contiguous US. The official website has contact information for the distributor, however there is no official website from the Acupuncture Slimming Belt itself nor a toll free number to call for information.

|Price and Shipping Information|
|Most retailers sell the Acupuncture Slimming Belt for about $20 before shipping and usually include the extender belt and required batteries as bonus materials, though their value is unknown.|
This product is currently not covered by a warranty or satisfaction guarantee from the manufacturer however individual retailers may cover the product with their own policies. Shipping, too, is a variable as this product tends to be sold by overseas retailers which means each seller will have different processing times and all shipping may take some time. For North American customers his may also mean higher shipping costs than one finds with products shipped from locations within the US.
|The Acupuncture Slimming Belt is different from many other ab belts on the market as it uses massage and heat rather than EMS to stimulate the abs. While it may replace some forms of abdominal exercise it is worth noting this belt does not actually exercise muscles by contracting them the way some other belts do. There are several additional benefits the Acupuncture Slimming Belt is supposed to provide, including relief from digestive problems and various reproductive issues in men and women.|
Because each belt comes with an extender it should fit most individuals who desire to use it. The lack of an official website or direct ordering from the manufacturer by other means makes shipping, warranties, and contacting the manufacturer a bit difficult. Consumers interested in purchasing an ab belt of any kind will do well to research their options before making a decision. Acupuncture Slimming Belt claims to offer a number of great benefits; however, it’s always good to consider all of your options before making a purchase. One of the most popular products at this time is The Flex Belt, and its official website provides a number of side by side comparisons, so you can see just how it stands up against other products on the market.
