          Whole Body Vibration is an exciting new way of exercising, healing, and reducing pain that brings rapid and dramatic results. The treatment involves simple functional movements performed on a vibrating platform which quickly, yet comfortably, vibrates your entire body or the specific area you want to treat

 

          As this platform moves, vibration will course through your muscles increasing your strength, improving your circulation, reducing inflammation, increasing bone density, eliminating your pain, and accelerating your body towards healthy, feel good living. This sounds far too good to be true, yet the technology exists and is scientifically proven to have profound effects on almost every area of health and wellness.

 

          Most exciting of all, this treatment and strength program doesn’t require much time out of your day. In fact, 15 minutes a day, 2-3 times a week, is all that’s required to dramatically increase the quality of your life in a way unrivaled by any other treatment or exercise plan available.

What is Whole Body Vibration?

How And Why It Works

          Whole Body Vibration Training is an incredible method of exercise and therapy that works by exposing an individual to both an unstable platform and an increase in gravitational force.  The two of these are mutually achieved by vibrating a platform 25-50 times per second.

             

          The unstable platform is the main reason why Whole Body Vibration is so remarkable at exercise and healing. As the plate vibrates, your body is being shifted up and down, left and right, and front to back anywhere from 25-50 times per second. These rapid shifts causes your body to become unbalanced. In order to regain stability, your muscles are forced to compensate for these shifts by an involuntary muscular contraction. (A reflex!)

 

          Essentially, this means that your muscles will be contracting up to 50 times per second! These shifts effect your entire body resulting in your entire muscular system undergoing rapid involuntary contractions that are hardly noticed and require minimal user effort. Because of the intensity and frequency of these contractions, phenomenal improvements in your fitness, health, and healing begin to take place!

          The instability present within Whole Body Vibration Training has another incredible benefit leaping it high above its competition. The platform’s destabilizing movements are so profound that they result in 30% more muscle fibers used per each and every single movement! Much of the extra muscle fibers used are in the form of Fast Twitch Muscle Fibers.

 

          While these fibers are usually difficult to activate in conventional weight training, everything you do on Whole Body Vibration Plates involves a Fast Twitch Muscle Response! This is what leads to such drastic gains in power, explosive strength, and speed!

          The reflex contractions that Whole Body Vibration activate are also a special kind of contraction. The reflex stimulated is called a natural stretch reflex. It is similar to how a Doctor would tap your knee during an exam. It is an innate and automatic feature of your body! These kind of reflexes happen when a muscle spindle is under a static stretch, is quickly stretched, or is over stretched. Once any of these stimuli are present the muscle spindle undergo a reflex contraction. With Whole Body Vibration, these spindles are constantly in the presence of those stimuli resulting in constant contraction and relaxation until the vibration stops!

 

The significance of this is incredible. When a muscle spindle contracts involuntarily in a reflex, it will stimulate its neighboring muscle spindle to contract and then relax! The result is a chain reaction! Whole Body Vibration causes virtually 100% of a muscle’s spindle to fire compared to traditional weight lifting’s 40%! This is huge! This is why you can achieve the best workout possible in an incredibly short amount of time! The sheer amount of activity generated within your muscles is enough to drastically impact the very nature of how your body functions!

          So far we’ve explored the effects that Whole Body Vibration has with just instability. There is also a second action taking place that makes Whole Body Vibration even more profound. This action is the manipulation of G-Force being exerted on your body.

 

          G-force is a measurement of how much gravitational pull is being exerted against your body. On earth, we experience a G-force of 1. On Whole Body Vibration Plates you can effectively weight up to 8 times your body weight! How is that possible?

          It is all due to the vertical vibration. As the plate moves it drops 4 mm and that drop creates a micro free fall. It tricks your body into thinking its falling! The body then contracts all of its muscles in a reflex response. It is at that moment you land when the force of the plate begins moving up against your previously descending body and this force creates the G-Force!

 

          The best part? All the stress is located in your muscles and not your joints! Whole Body Vibration is a low impact exercise routine! The micro free fall is simply too little of a fall to generate enough energy to impact joints. However, the fall is enough to generate a reflex from the muscles. This is why you can exercise your muscles up to 8 times your body weight and leave your joints virtually untouched!

The Benefits

          Whole Body Vibration is the most effective way to exercise because it fatigues the muscles extremely quickly and most effectively with minimal effort from the user. Studies show a mere 12 minutes of exercise on the plate is equal to 1.5 hour workout! It is also such a low impact workout that it is safe for virtually everyone and its difficulty can be changed so drastically that any skill level can be accommodated for! 

 

          The benefits of Whole Body Vibration are astounding. It has been shown to enhance muscle and bone building, increase flexibility and mobility, increase circulation, reduce pain, stimulate lymphatic drainage,  reduce cellulite, decrease cortisol levels, increase the section of serotonin and norepinephrine, and increase the general function of neurological processes! In fact, Whole Body Vibrations have been used in Europe specifically for neurological rehabilitation! They were successful at relieving symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, stroke, and paralysis resulting from trauma! 

 

          The elderly are another group of individuals perfect for Whole Body Vibration. Neurological improvements from the plate have been shown to increase stability and decrease swaying while walking! Further research was done on the effects of Whole Body Vibration on the elderly by the University of Liege in Belgium. They exposed individuals to controlled Whole Body Vibration exercises for six weeks. Each week they performed 4 one minute sessions at a rate of 3 times per week. The result?

 

  • 143 percent improvement in physical function

  • 77 percent improvement in equilibrium

  • 60 percent improvement in vitality

  • 57 percent improvement in the quality of walking

  • 41 percent reduction in pain

  • 23 percent improvement in general health

 

          That's pretty impression for only 12 minutes a week of strength training! Now, couple that with increased circulation, improved posture, enhanced balance, and a decrease in osteoporosis and you have a recipe for a lifetime of independence.

 

          Whole Body Vibration is not just for the elderly as its vibrations have been shown to increase explosive muscular strength and even stimulate the release of IGF-1, testosterone, and the Human Growth Hormone (HGH)! The plate is perfect for athletes. Vibrational training courses through muscles developing functional and practical strength which transfers over into real world application giving you a competitive edge. 

 

          Vibration technology activates your entire muscle and nervous system at once causing the muscles of your entire body to improve in strength and function. Not only does it train the primary muscle groups but its focus on balance activates stabilizing muscles, secondary muscles, and rarely used muscle fibers. The result: an athlete’s body that is not only the fastest and the strongest but the most resilient. A body developed through vibrational training is among the highest in ability and able to avoid both injury and withstand abuse. Through explosive strength, muscular endurance, and game changing agility, Whole Body Vibration keeps individuals at the peak of their performance.

 

          But what happens when an individual is injured? You gain access to the most effective therapy equipment on the planet. Pinched nerves, strains/sprains, joint injuries, knee injuries, rotator cuff injuries, sprained ligaments, arthritis, chronic pain, muscle spasms, pain from the neck, shoulder, arm, elbow, hip, knee, foot, and ankle, hamstring injuries/spasms, hormonal imbalances, depression, fatigue, high blood pressure, balance disorders, diabetes, lung disorders, thyroid conditions, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis,  multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, sciatica, cystic fibrosis, idiopathic peripheral neuropathy, medial/lateral epicondylitis, muscle/tendon damage, post and pre surgery rehab, musculoskeletal pain, and myofascial pain are all some of the conditions treated using Whole Body Vibration. That's how incredible Whole Body Vibration is. Almost any injury or pain can be treated! You can finally live pain free, or compete without fear of injury!
