What is Whole Body Vibration?
The concept of using vibration to stimulate the body is thousands of years old. Monks use shaking rituals to prepare for meditation, animals use shaking to release stress, and science has proven again & again that humans need to move the body to keep it healthy.
We use whole body vibration to mechanically move bodies. Our vibration machines are dual motor, they move in multiple directions at variable speeds to produce specific results while vibrating the whole body. We design programs that are customized to fit the needs of the individual.
The pivotal movement mimics walking. When using oscillating whole body vibration equipment, the engaged muscles contract alternately as in normal walking motion, so the same muscle groups on both sides of the body are not contracted at the same time. This type of movement is generally supported by the medical community as a healthier vibration, as it has less vertical impact on the body, creates less stress on the organs, and maintains flexibility in the spine.
The vertical movement primarily duplicates the jump reflex. The muscles on both sides of the body contract simultaneously resulting in higher impact. Linear WBV exercises are effective for improving jump height, which is why they are popular with professional athletes: football and basketball players. Individuals with joint or spinal problems may need to exercise caution when using this type of exercise.
These movements, (either used individually or together) engage almost 100% of your muscle fibers. Thousands of involuntary muscle contractions are triggered throughout your body, naturally stimulating every cell – including your muscles, bones and soft tissue. Depending on the speed, your muscles will contract up to 60 times per second and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it “weighs” more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or “load” of gravity with every movement you perform (G-Force)!
What are the benefits?
- Increased Circulation: Provides oxygen & nutrition to all parts of the body
- Muscle strengthening & toning: Reflex action targets almost 100% of muscle fibers
- Improved balance: Strengthening stabilizing muscles
- Reduced joint & back pain: Forced relaxation of tense muscles
- Stress relief: Decreased cortisol levels after one session
- Metabolism stimulation: Increased muscle mass forces metabolism to work
- Sound Sleep: Hormone balance and energy regulation
- Overall improvement in health: Healthy, Balanced, Vibrant.
