WHOLE BODY VIBRATION

What is Whole Body Vibration?

Whole body vibration is a concept that was originally developed by the Russians as a way of training their cosmonauts. Now it has been expanded for use by everyone to fulfill many purposes. It is based on a period of intense vibration, applied by the use of a machine, while the patient remains static.

 

How does it work?

The idea is that, through a series of intense vibrations, the body thinks that it is falling and it provokes a stress reflex. This results in an increase in blood circulation and muscular strength. Metabolism speeds up and so does the production of collagen, to reduce cellulite and improve the smoothness of the skin*. There is also a benefit for people who, under normal circumstances, are unable to exercise due to health constraints such as arthritis, Parkinson’s or MS. They can improve muscle toning and conditioning through the vibrations*.

 

Are there any side effects?

It is very important that a professional administers this treatment. For a healthy person, there are generally no risks associated with this treatment. However, for people with certain conditions, whole body vibration may not be the best for this treatment.  Always consult a professional prior to engaging in this process.
