So as far as to which vibration is better for you, YOU need to determine what you want to focus on. If you have foot or leg problems, and need therapy, lineal vibration would be a good choice for you. However, if you have neck pain or are prone to headaches, then lineal vibration is NOT recommended for your use. If you are looking for more of a whole body fitness and therapy in one session, then the oscillating movement would be the most beneficial. Since our dual motor vibration machines have both lineal and pivotal vibration, the motors can run simultaneously or separately to create the best session for your comfort level.
