One of the newest innovations in the natural health industry over the last decade is a health and wellness tool known as Whole Body Vibration. With time and energy in shorter and shorter supply in our stressful and fast-paced lives, whole body vibration (WBV) comes to the rescue.
Ten minutes of vibration equals approximately one hour of regular exercise as to the way it influences circulation, lymphatic drainage and core strengthening. Additionally, it is one of the best tools to support bone mineral density augmentation and virtually everyone who uses WBV loses inches and feels better in three short trials.
This wellness tool is a low platform with handles a person stands upon, upright. The history of this therapy and training was first established by Russian scientists attempting to solve problems associated with space travel for Russian cosmonauts. In zero gravity astronauts were losing bone mineral density as well as muscle strength and tone, much faster than usual. The original intent in developing WBV was to mimic gravity.
Simply standing on the machine platform conveys low frequency vibrations with low magnitude force (gentle but dynamic oscillations), providing enough gravity resistance to protect and build muscle and bone strength. Space scientists shared their results with medical scientists and research began anew to explore other applications for WBV technology. As a result, Whole Body Vibration machines started showing up in hospitals, medical facilities and rehabilitation gyms.
The focus of Whole Body Vibration wellness machines attracted additional attention and they began showing up more and more in health facilities in Asia, Europe, Canada, and more recently in the United states to support wellness and improved athletic performance.
Only takes 10 minutes a day three times per week; increased strength, dexterity and endurance; improves balance and coordination; elevates serotonin (the “happiness” hormone); reduces inches and increases weight loss; increases secretion of hormones important for cell regeneration and repair such as HGH (human growth hormone) and IGF-1; increases bone mineral density; reduces arthritic pain, joint and ligament stress; improves collagen production; decreases cortisol (stress hormone); reduces menopausal symptoms; supports more restful sleep; reduces stress; tones muscles and improves flexibility; supports detoxification and higher levels of energy; and more.
While the use of vibration training and usage is still relatively new, it does not suffer from lack of supportive research. While there is still more research to be done, the overwhelming consistency of scientific findings is extremely compelling. Couple that with the empirical response people relate that have used WBV, as well as the myriad of applications these machines offer…and you have a technology that shows great promise for health enhancement on many levels, now and in the future.
1)“Wow! I am impressed—in three short visits a total reduction of 7 inches, which is remarkable. Some of the other pleasant side benefits are that I feel energized and my sleep was sound”. Bill lost 7 inches in three 10 minute trials.
2) “It felt great! I could feel and see the difference in my mid-section after the first visit. Even though I run marathons and do triathalons this process really helped me feel an increase in muscle tone, energy and strength. I would highly recommend this for athletes and non-athletes who are looking for an easy and quick whole body workout”. Luanne lost 10 inches in three 10 minute trials.
3) “I lost a significant amount of inches from my neck to my thighs and had an overall feeling of being more relaxed, with less feeling of stress. My technicians were very knowledgeable and professional. It has been a good experience”. Marty lost 7.25 inches in 3 trials.
4) Great workout in short time. Feel really toned after three sessions. Recommend this system on a regular basis for all seniors like myself”. Paul lost 1-1/2 inches in three 10 minute trials.
For your own personal experience or more information, please view the wellness gift coupon in the ad adjacent to this article and use it for yourself or another you feel might benefit. We are looking for 100 trial participants to receive 3 free sessions in order to get the word out about this important “new” technology. Nothing to lose!
