What Is Whole Body Vibration?
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) offers a low-impact way to increase strength, flexibility, and metabolism while rejuvenating your body. WBV causes the muscles to experience an involuntary contraction at the same rate that the platform is vibrating.
WBV also allows the patient to go through physical therapy, rehab exercise, and massage rehab with less pain, drug-free. WBV can also energize, increase range of motion, rebuild healthy muscle tissue, increase circulation, and reduce tension and stress in a very short time.
Benefits of Whole Body Vibration
WBV provides proven health benefits, including:
Increased bone mass
Increased blood flow
Stimulate lymphatic system
Decrease in cortisol levels
Lower Blood Pressure
Whole-body vibration has been demonstrated to reduce the hardening of the arteries.
Stronger Bone Density
WBV performed three times per week for 15 minutes has been shown to improve bone density, providing people with a drug-free alternative to osteoporosis prevention, management, and improvement.
Better Balance, Flexibility, and Coordination
During traditional exercise, muscles contract 1-2 times per second instead of 30 contractions per second while using a vibration machine. Standing, or better yet performing exercises, on the vibration plate engages your core and hip flexors to stabilize your body. This makes your body work harder, and eventually, the muscles around the joints grow stronger.
BIncrease Immunity and Stimulate Lymphatic System
WBV therapy stimulates the lymphatic system, causing an immune response in the lymph nodes and giving the body better defenses against illnesses. WBV exercise also causes the lymph system to drain more efficiently, getting trapped fats and toxins on their way out of the body through the natural filters of the circulatory system.
Lower Cortisol Levels
Cortisol is a stress hormone released by the adrenal glands. While cortisol is essential for helping your body deal with stressful situations, when cortisol levels are too high for too long, this hormone can hurt you more than it helps. When cortisol levels remain high over an extended time, they can cause weight gain and high blood pressure, disrupt sleep, negatively impact mood, reduce your energy levels, and contribute to diabetes.
