Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic!
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
Well sauna belt or vibration belt has only a temporary effect as far as weight loss is considered because it burns or more accurately dehydrates the fat cells but it has to be followed with proper exercise and diet if u really want to make a change.
To reduce the belly fat you have to proper physical exercise monitored by a qualified trainer. Proper diet also important. Avoid fatty food and sedentary life style. Keep engaged all the time. Relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation also helps.
Wishing you good health
