Program: After Carl Duncan mentioned how Stump Harder took care of a couple lovely ladies at the Bingo pickle bar, he then Carl then bragged about all the FREE massages he is getting, then he introduced Matt Krusoe, who allows Carl to get the free massages. Matt has a "Demonstration Center" that has 13 Migun Therapeutic beds. (Migun means Beautiful Health). These beds have
Matt gave us a brief run down on his past life, then he tried to explain how the Migun bed worked. (it has some little balls that roll up and down your body. They are filled with Helium gas and produce Far Infrared Rays and heat). The infrared thermal system stimulates the consumption of energy equal to that expended in a 6 to 9 mile run. The far infrared rays also flushes out toxins from the lymph areas and from the largest organ of elimination, the skin, and restores a healthy body.
Matt said that Tom Martino sent some under cover people in to check out the beds and were so impressed that a film crew was sent in to cover the beds in more detail. Matt also said the beds are a great cure for "road rage".
There are several locations along the front range, go try one out FOR FREE.
