Stimulate. Energize your Day with Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Whole Body Vibration Therapy may sound mysterious, but in fact, it has been around for nearly 50 years. The idea came from observing human body movement under the influence of earth’s gravitational force. The movement of our internal organs is constantly influenced by gravity, which works in a vertical direction. When we move or exercise, vertical vibrations cause the body organs and muscles to contract and relax repeatedly. This type of vertical movement stimulates the growth plates, improves circulation, energizes the lymphatic system and enhances muscle strength (as a result of the contract/relax response). In the 1960’s, the Russians were among the first to explore how vibration training could be useful for athletes and astronauts in their space program (vibration training was shown to slow muscle atrophy in space).

Once the Iron Curtain lifted, the West finally began profiting from the research that had been performed on vibration training. In 1996 the first whole body vibration device was patented.

Today, a whole body vibration device creates a vertical vibration from a base that the user stands on. The TurboSonic uses quiet sound (sonic) vibration, which emanates up through the body, stimulating the muscle fibers, three times the strength of gravity. Flexibility is increased and recovery time for muscle repair is considerably shortened, making it a great training tool for athletes as well as anyone wanting to improve their overall body tone and health. Furthermore, blood vessels are stimulated, improving circulation down to the cellular level, increasing cell oxygen levels, nutritional uptake, fluid movement and waste removal. Essentially, the body’s natural healing response is accelerated. Tendons and ligaments become better toned and cellulite disperses. Even small muscle groups such as the facial muscles are improved. Similar to exercise, it has been shown to produce metabolic responses.

Whole body vibration therapy is a revolutionary healing modality and training tool for everyone. In addition to maximizing sports training efforts, it is a useful tool for seniors and those who are rehabilitating from injury. A 10-minute session provides many of the same benefits of conventional exercise without the constraints.
