Health Benefits of Whole Body Vibration with Vibra Therapy
Below are the health benefits of whole body vibration exercise machines, backed by scientific research from Florida University, Sports Injury Clinic, Muscle Magazine, Total Health and more.
- For Massage: Like having your own masseuse. So whenever you want a massage, just get on a Vibra Therapy machine and get a massage with proven health benefits.
- For Therapy: Whole body vibration is proven physical therapy for many chronic conditions, without any drugs.
- For Fitness: Although there is very little effort involved, standing (or sitting) on a whole body vibration machine has many health benefits for a physically fit body. See details below
- Accelerates Fat Loss
How does whole body vibration accelerate fat loss?
In conjunction with a healthy meal plan, vibrations can help you lose the weight and keep it off. “Over the year, only the conventional fitness and vibration groups managed to maintain a 5% weight loss, which is what is considered enough to improve health,” Dr. Vissers of University of Antwerp in Belgium.
- Boosts Lymphatic Drainage
How does whole body vibration boost lymphatic drainage?
Lymphatic fluid is completely dependent on physical exercise to move, and the up-and-down rhythmic gravitational force caused by vibration therapy machines causes the lymph system’s one-way valves to open and close, increasing lymph flow.
- Decreases Stress
How does whole body vibration decrease stress?
By reducing the cortisol levels in the body while raising key hormones such as serotonin, vibration therapy machines help relieve stress. Additionally, it increases and oxygenates blood flow, and improves flexibility and range of motion.
- Helps Release Toxins
How does whole body vibration help release toxins faster?
Another added benefit is the release of natural endorphins that make a person feel good, and better circulation of blood and oxygen throughout the body as a whole. This in turn pushes more fluid through the bodies natural filtration systems and helps remove toxins within the body.
- Helps Tendonitis & Ligament Rehabilitation
How does whole body vibration help tendonitis & ligament rehabilitation?
Findings suggest that vibration may serve as an anabolic stimulus to tendon similar to its effects on bone and muscle. These findings are important as they open the potential that low magnitude, high frequency vibration might serve as a means to accelerate tendon and ligament healing.
- Improves Balance & Flexibility
How does whole body vibration improve balance & flexibility?
Vibrations stimulate the involuntary muscles to reflex to keep you balanced, and the nutritional effects in the articulations, and diminish neuromuscular adhesions, improving overall flexibility.
- Improves Metabolism
How does whole body vibration improve metabolism?
As your muscles get stronger, they use fuel more efficiently, and as your blood circulation improves you’ll have more energy. These things encourage your body to burn fat and calories from food faster, resulting in an increased metabolism. As your metabolism increases, you’ll burn more fat, even when you’re not working out.
- Improves Posture Stability
How does whole body vibration improve posture stability?
Four-week study on posture, published in 2014 in PLOS ONE, was performed on four groups of young men males (N = 28) to determine both the short- and long-term effects of whole-body vibration. Over the long term, researchers concluded that long-term vibration training improves posture stability of young men in the frontal plane.
- Increases Blood Circulation
How does whole body vibration increase blood circulation?
Increases Circulatory & Muscular System at Core Level. The vibrations coursing through your body while using one of these machines will help keep your blood oxygenated, which helps greatly with blood circulation.
- Increases Bone Mass Density
How does whole body vibration increase bone mass density?
Several studies have shown vibration therapy to improve muscle and bone circulation, increasing the supply of nutrients needed to build bones. Vibration signals transmit and amplify into bone tissue, directly activating mechanosensors in bone cells.
- Reduces Cellulite
How does whole body vibration reduce cellulite?
As the vibrations shake off the weight, they will subsequently tighten and tone and reduce cellulite.
- Reduces Osteoporosis
How does whole body vibration reduce osteoporosis?
Studies have demonstrated that vibration increases the anabolic (bone building) activity of bone tissue and increases bone density, and reduces the effects of Osteoporosis.
- Relieves Arthritis & Fibromayalgia
How does whole body vibration relieve arthritis & Fibromayalgia?
Results show that there was a significant reduction for pain and fatigue with vibration therapy. Vibrations cause the muscles to contract and relax, potentially alleviating any underlying muscular pain.
- Relieves Back & Neck Pain
How does whole body vibration relieve back & neck pain?
Vibration therapy can also be utilized to assist the circulatory system’s ability to deliver vital nutrients and hormones throughout the body, relieving pain throughout the body.
- Strengthens Core Muscles
How does whole body vibrations strengthen core muscles?
The vibrations loosen your muscles around the waist (core) and tone often unused muscles by causing them to contract and relax several times per second.
- Tones & Tightens Body
How does whole body vibration tone & tighten the body?
As the vibrations help burn the calories, this will in turn tighten your core muscles and become firm around your waist, legs and arms.
- Treats Diabetic Neuropathy, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s
The mechanical stimulation produced by the vibrations generates forces on the body causing muscles to lengthen. This signal, received by muscle spindles, is then relayed to the central nervous system, triggering the stretch reflex. As a result, more motor units are activated and synchronized, producing a larger muscle contraction without additional loading to the passive structures such as bones, ligaments and joints.
