Thanks for posting your query.

Yes, getting a big bruise on your leg while using the vibrator machine is bad. This means to say that you are not using the machine in the right way. The bruises that are occurring are due to formation of superficial hematoma or blood clots.

Please read the instruction manual of the machine carefully again on how to use the machine. You can seek the help of a person who is already using it too.

My advice for you is:

1. Start using the machine slowly. Gradually you will learn how to use it and it will become more easy and flexible for you.

2. Keep ice packs locally on the areas of bruises for them to heal faster.

3. Do not stretch more on the machine.

4. Do not use the vibrator machine continuously also, as it may generate heat and cause more bruises.

Hope this helps you. Do write back for follow up queries that you may have.
