Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Whole Body Vibration (WBV)was originally developed for the Russian space program and is used by both NASA and Russian astronauts to optimize health. WBV has been researched extensively and has been shown to help in the treatment of many health conditions.

WBV is simple to do but is a very powerful tool for enhancing health. It involves standing on a platform with physician prescribed settings in the machine.  By utilizing both oscillating and linear motion, the WBV platform stimulates muscle relaxation and contraction while improving blood circulation and encouraging lymphatic drainage.

Information and research has shown improvement in many conditions including:

  • Healthy weight loss and reduction of fat tissue

  • Low back pain

  • Muscle weakness

  • Osteoporosis

  • Multiple sclerosis                                                                                  

  • Parkinson’s

  • Diabetic neuropathy                                                                               

  • Balance issues

  • Post-operative strengthening                                                              

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Plantar fasciitis                                                                                        

  • And much more!

 

Because of the versatility of the platform it is possible to customize sessions to specific health concerns or wellness goals. Research shows that 10 minutes of WBV can be equal to a 60-minute workout.
