Vibration therapy is a revolutionary, highly advanced treatment that is making its way into mainstream health and wellness. It is fast and effective for promoting muscle mass, increasing bone density and improving circulation in a short period of time. This technology was developed by the Soviet Union for their Cosmonauts who trained on a whole body vibration platform and were able to remain in space 2x longer than our astronauts.
In just 10 minutes a day you will notice the effects within one month of use.
The accelerated aging process brought on by poor nutrition, lack of movement, environmental toxins and poor circulation creates a toxic environment within our bodies causing degenerative disease to develop.
The user stands on or performs simple exercises on the vibration platform which stimulates bones, muscles, blood vessels and cells in a manner that promotes their rapid development and circulation.
The vertical movement of the plate stimulates the body's natural "stretch reflex" which causes a spontaneous muscle contraction to instinctively stretch and contract: both movements occur at varying rates between 3-50 times per second. (3Hz to 50Hz)
The Vibration Platform comes standard with 3 preset automatic program modes to provide a variety of treatment and workout options with multiple frequency and intensity variations per session. It also offers 2 modes of movement; vibration or rocking (oscillating). Both are beneficial and a matter of preference.
The automatic modes are preset to 10 minute sessions that countdown and depending on the mode selection users can burn up to 300 calories if utilizing is as part of their fitness training. In the manual mode, users can program the session in 1 minute intervals as well as manually adjust the speed of vibration or oscillation.
The therapy consists of standing upright on the vibration platform that produces vibrations from 3Hz to 50Hz with variations of amplitude from 0 to 60. These vibrations are transferred to your body, stimulating your cells, blood vessels, organs and muscles.
The muscle contractions promote an increase in crucial blood flow to joints and their connective tissues throughout the body. The result is reduced pain and an increase in bone, muscle mass, strength and flexibility.
Vibration therapy can be incorporated into your fitness routine for pre and post workouts. Those who are frail, elderly or have osteoporosis benefit greatly from vibration therapy due to its ability to promote bone cell growth.
Clinical studies have shown that whole body vibration substantially improves muscle strength, performance and flexibility. It has also been proven to enhance blood and lymph circulation, which is critical in regenerating damaged tissues. Vibration therapy also assists the circulatory system's ability to deliver vital nutrients and hormones throughout the body.
The vibrations stimulate your body to increase production of anti - aging hormones including testosterone and growth hormones. Also, the stress hormone cortisol decreases while stimulating brain hormones and neurotransmitter production which leads to improved mood, attitude and cognitive function.

The vibration plate has more than 30 years of practice based evidence and scientific research to support its effectiveness. NASA in Houston
Texas, The US Olympic trainers, college and pro sports teams which include 20 pro football and 5 NHL teams, all utilize vibration therapy. In addition the Mayo Clinic and other famous hospitals, rehab /assisted living facilities all use it.
