Natural Treatment for Arthritis Type Symptoms:
Arthritis is not generally a result of bone maladies but rather emerges from acute pain of muscle and connective tissue. Inadequate circulation and reduced flexion contribute to rheumatism and arthritis. Pain is most often caused by a tightening of connective tissues in the lower back, knees, hips, shoulders and other flexion points of the body.
Low impact exercise is very important for people with arthritis. When exercising with arthritis you should focus on certain movements and an overall balanced workout for your entire body.
A common mistake is to focus on just the area that is in pain which will throw your body’s balance off, potentially overwork the problem area, and can actually perpetuate arthritis symptoms of inflammation or cartilage deterioration.
It is important to focus on range of motion, strengthening, and aerobic exercises to help alleviate the symptoms associated with arthritis. Exercise can reduce pain and disability by decreasing muscle inhibition and by improving local circulation.
Whole body vibration elicits muscle and connective tissue flexion without over-stretching or straining the muscle. Studies show that whole-body vibration delivers mechanical loading to the skeletal muscles, thereby increasing strength and improving circulation and flexibility.
For example: when standing on a whole body vibration platform that is set for 20 HZ, your muscles are contracting and relaxing 20 times per second in response to the vibrations. This is like jumping 20 times per second on a mini trampoline. The vibration stimulus travels straight up through the body.
Your whole body weight is being mobilized to circulate lymphatic fluids. This creates the same benefits as a mini trampoline, just in a much shorter amount of time and much more comfortably.
Exercise can reduce pain and disability by decreasing muscle inhibition and by improving local circulation. Unfortunately, most arthritis sufferers tend to not adhere to an exercise regimen due to the discomfort associated with working out. The more difficult the exercise, the less likely they will do it.
Whole body vibration is particularly suited for these people because it exercises the postural system. Whole body vibration is easy to use, the exercise sessions are short and best of all it is safe. Whole Body Vibration is a great option to relieve arthritis pain and suffering, maybe even reverse the effects naturally. Routine whole body vibration therapy can provide stretching exercise of connective tissues for effective and many times immediate relief of arthritis and rheumatism.
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) works by transferring vibrations from an oscillating platform to muscles throughout the body, enabling them to contract and relax multiple times per second in a reflex action. WBV exercise increases blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles, prompting both elasticity and explosive power. It also loosens adhesions, which positively influences flexibility and range of motion even more.
Any static or dynamic pose, held for up to 60 seconds at a time while vibrating on the Whole Body Vibration platform, activates targeted muscle groups, simultaneously improving muscle strength, power, flexibility and range of motion; all contributing to optimal performance on the field, court, or course.
About 30% of people over the age of 65 lose their balance and suffer a fall each year. Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is an effective way to maintain or enhance skeletal mass in low-mobility individuals without the risks associated with high-impact exercise.
Whole body Vibration stimulates the primary endings of the muscle spindles, activating alpha-motor neurons resulting in muscle contractions. Studies (see research below) have shown that WBV is associated with increases in lower limb muscle strength.
Often, as an individual realizes that they are out of balance and about to fall, the mind activates the responses to prevent the fall but the individual does not have the muscle strength in their lower limbs to regain their balance.
WBV delivers mechanical loading to the skeleton, which increases bone mass and improves postural balance by strengthening skeletal muscles. Balance and gait are improved by enhanced muscle control effected by routine whole body vibration exercise. Strengthening skeletal muscles has a direct effect on coordination and balance.
The dreaded “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” skin around the buttock, thighs, tummy, calves and ankles is the bane of many women’s existence.
The subcutaneous tissues are a web of connective tissue, where much of a woman’s body fat is stored. The fatty cells get enlarged and become dimpled and puckered. Also, contributing to the effect is fluid retention, the storage of environmental toxins, hormonal factors, and lack of circulation.
When circulation within this web of connective tissue becomes blocked, cellular waste stagnates, and these tissues harden as the skin loses its elasticity. The puckering is caused by this act of shriveling, dimpling and adherence of the skin to tissues underneath.
Healthy solutions for defeating cellulite have been elusive, but the German Sanaderm Clinic performed a six month research project proving the effectiveness of whole body vibration training to solve the problem.
In the study 25.7 % improvement over 6 months using whole body vibration 3 times a week for 10 minutes. When combined with cardio exercise the improvement increased to 32%. Cellulite is particularly present in the lower extremities so try sitting on the vibration plate or on a 6 inch stool placed on the vibration plate.
Cellulite loss can be healthy, efficient, time-saving and fun. Combine whole body vibration with a calorie reduced diet and burn away this fat. Increased muscle tone will help create a firmer surface below the fat, giving your skin a smoother, tighter appearance.
Improved circulation will carry vital oxygen to your cells and tissues, assist in flushing toxins, while increasing the production of collagen. Result: significant reduction of cellulite.
Don’t forget to use proper hydration to help flush trapped toxins from the affected areas.
Constipation is one of those topics few like to talk about. If you’ve suffered from this problem, though, you know it can be both painful and frustrating.
Constipation occurs when bowel movements become difficult or less frequent. The normal length of time between bowel movements ranges widely from person to person. However, if the colon is healthy, a person will average two or more well-formed bowel movements a day.
Whole Body Vibration can aid in minimizing build up of toxins and deposits within your colon by keeping your muscles and bodily functions in regular use. Inadequate exercise or immobility can contribute to constipation.
A sedentary person’s bowels become weak and can’t do their job of propelling the wastes out of their body. The bowel then begins to deteriorate and lose its muscle tone. Whole body vibration helps get the body moving without pain or strain to the joints. It offsets the weakness and strengthens the smooth muscles of the bowel. Whole body vibration also strengthens the pelvic floor muscles and improves pelvic floor function.
When the digestive and eliminative systems of the body are in proper working order they rid the body of accumulating build-up in the colon, toxins are not absorbed from the colon into the bloodstream. Whole body vibration benefits the bowels and colon and contributes to a healthy lifestyle.
Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the secretory glands in the body which include mucus and sweat. CF significantly impacts the lungs, pancreas, liver, intestines, sinuses, and sex organs. Mucus is produced by the lining of certain body tissue. Normally, mucus is slippery and water-like keeping the walls of organs moist which helps to prevent infections. When an individual has CF, mucus becomes thick and sticky which may lead to a blocked airway. Mucus buildup leads to multiple infections due to the accumulation of bacteria, which may lead to permanent damage of the lungs. Many of the treatments for CF are focused on removing secretions from the lungs and preventing chest infections. In the pancreas and small intestine, mucus build-up blocks pancreatic ducts so that digestive enzymes cannot enter the small intestine. This leads to malnutrition as the body does not absorb all the needed nutrients. The undigested food also causes large bulky stool which leads to abdominal bloating and constipation. An individual with CF may also have mineral imbalances due to the excessive salt lost with sweating. These imbalances lead to several issues including dehydration. Individuals with CF are also at higher risk for developing osteoporosis and diabetes. Progression of CF and severity of the disease can vary between individuals. Lung function often begins to show a decline in childhood. Meanwhile, respiratory failure is the most common cause of death in individuals with CF. Nutritional and respiratory therapies, exercise and medications are all part of early therapeutic interventions that allow individuals with CF to live into their forties.
Exercise is an important aspect of managing CF. Aerobic exercise can help to loosen and dislodge mucus and assist with secretion clearance while improving overall physical health. Also, diet modifications may have to be made to account for an increase in salt loss due to excessive sweating during exercise 1. Meanwhile, habitual physical activity has also been shown to slow down the decline in lung function.
Secretion clearance is essential to help maintain lung function and decrease the risk of recurrent lung infections. Traditionally, manual chest physiotherapy (CPT) had been used on a daily basis to help with secretion clearance. It consists of percussion (clapping) over the chest wall, along with postural drainage to use gravity to assist with the removal of secretions. In the 1990s, a high frequency chest compression (HFCC) vest was found to be as effective at removing secretions as manual CPT techniques. The initial vest developed provides compressions during expiration while also causing a vibrating frequency to the chest between 5 and 25 Hz.
There have been two studies investigating the effects of Whole Body Vibration (WBV) on individuals with CF. In one study, adults with CF were trained for three months using WBV at a frequency between 20 to 25 Hz. Improvements in muscle function was shown; however, no changes were made to force expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) or forced vital capacity (FVC) from using WBV 5. The second study involved adults with CF being trained by WBV for six months. The findings suggest improvements in neuromuscular and intramuscular coordination which allow individuals to use less muscle force to achieve the same amount of muscle power (increased efficiency of movement)6. Lung functions remained unchanged 6. Both studies used small sample sizes and did not have a control group to compare changes and improvements to. Both studies looked at lung function through FEV1 but they did not investigate sputum production as a result of using WBV. Therefore it remains unclear if WBV would impact secretion removal. There has been no research looking into the benefits/risks of WBV on children with CF.
These preliminary studies show promising potential for the use and benefits of WBV with individuals with CF. In other populations WBV have found to improve or maintain bone density which is a relevant concern for individuals with CF. There are several contraindications that may prevent some individuals with CF from using WBV. They include but are not limited to severe osteoporosis and an active infection. As with any chronic illness it is essential that an individual with CF discuss the addition of WBV to their exercise routine. It is important that the physician understand WBV so that they can help the individual decide if the benefits outweigh any potential risks.
Diabetes is a metabolic disease in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. The high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of frequent urination, increased thirst and increased hunger.
It’s important to keep your blood sugar controlled, because when too much sugar stays in your blood for a long time, it can damage blood vessels and nerves.
Much of the food we eat is turned into sugar in the blood for our bodies to use for energy. A hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin helps sugar in our blood get into the cells of our bodies. If your body doesn’t make enough insulin or if the insulin doesn’t work the way it should, blood sugar can’t get into your cells and instead stays in your blood, raising your blood sugar level.
Type I diabetes presently requires the person to inject insulin
Management of your type 2 diabetes includes:
1. Using your medicines exactly as your doctor prescribes
2. Making smart food choices
3. Being physically active
All 3 of these steps contribute to blood sugar management and therefore the management of your type 2 diabetes. Managing your type 2 diabetes is a goal whose importance is hard to exaggerate.
Whole body vibration increases circulation and offers physical activity with no stress to the knee and hip joints. It’s fast, fun and easy.
Lower Back Pain
Chronic Lower Back Pain (CLBP) is the main cause of early retirement in some countries. CLBP is not generally a result of bone maladies but rather emerges from acute pain of muscle and connective tissue. Key muscles in the pelvic girdle become weak, the abdominals, gluteus and quadratus femorus. The pain is triggered by a tightening of connective tissue and weak muscles.
Whole Body Vibration elicits muscle and connective tissue flexion. Studies show that WBV delivers mechanical loading to the skeletal muscles, thereby strengthening the muscles and improving circulation and flexibility. Manchester Metropolitan University research showed WBV can reduce chronic lower back pain by 70% in just 3 months.
Whole body vibration increases circulation to the problem areas and decreases the inflammation associated with lower back pain. Thus, we can be pain free, flexible, and with strong muscles which help promote spinal health.
Routine WBV therapy can provide stretching of connective tissues without straining them for effective and often immediate relief of back pain. Strengthening core muscles help develop better posture and spinal health which keeps us free from back pain.
As people age most report a significant drop in their energy levels. This is largely due the lymphatic system not functioning properly and a slowdown in the body’s metabolism. Whole body vibration increases energy by increasing blood circulation and by helping the lymphatic system work properly. For more information on the lymphatic system, please click here.

WebMD describes hip replacement surgery as a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint. It usually is done when all other treatment options have failed to provide adequate pain relief. The procedure should relieve a painful hip joint, making walking easier.
Whole body vibration is a potential therapy for age-related hip bone density. It may also give relief in the symptoms of pain in the hip from arthritis. See research below.
Urinary and fecal discharge is controlled by kaegle muscles and sphincter muscles that create valves in the body to control the flow of fluids and materials. Among several applications, sphincter muscles control the discharge of food from the stomach to the small intestine, also the discharge of feces. Kegel muscles control the flow of urine from the bladder.
Up to 35% of women over the age of 60 experience urinary incontinence. Younger women whom have had several pregnancies can also experience frequent incontinence.
Healthy and strong sphincter and kegel muscles provide the pressure needed to control continence. As pressure is increased from coughing, sneezing, jumping, etc and is transmitted to kegel and sphincter muscles, the pressure differential is changed, resulting in incontinence.
Whole Body Vibration is shown to be an effective way to strengthen the sphincter and kegel muscles that prevent leakage. Muscles are strengthen involuntarily as the vibration elicits an automatic response.
Insomnia is difficulty in sleeping, sleep interruption or early awakening. Chronic insomnia can affect balance, causes weakening of the immune system and lessens disease resistance.
WBV enhances the functions of the whole viscera, strengthens blood and oxygen supply for the hypothalamus and brain stem, thus making sleeping more regular and comfortable.
Try using WBV for 10 minutes before you go to bed. Try several positions including, standing, and lying of the floor with your legs on the machine.
Knee pain is a common complaint for many many people. There are several factors that can cause pain in the knee. It can be related to the knee joint or around the knee. Some pain is commonly caused by overusing the knee or suddenly injuring it.
Knee pain can come from an injury, a sprain, or tear. It can come from a disease like osteoarthritis or from inflammation such as bursitis. It can be a deformity or a syndrome, such as runner's knee.
Whole body vibration has helped improve the symptom of pain in the knee in some people. It is low impact and stresses the bone tissue just enough to cause it to increase in mass and density. Whole body vibration eliminates the trauma to sensitive joints and tendons that often makes conventional exercise intolerable.
Speak with a medical professional for the cause of the pain.
Dizziness and vertigo rank among the most common complaints in medicine, affecting approximately 20%-30% of the general population.
Some of our clients suffering from dizziness were at first reluctant to try whole body vibration machine. They were worried it would only accentuate their problem. Needless to say, those who were concerned were shocked to find that after using the machine several times, their dizziness dissipated. Dizziness is the body’s perceived lack of balance and whole body vibration helps restore that balance. Because these two issues are so closely related, click here to read more about balance and the research involving whole body vibration.
There is an excellent YouTube video that teaches about the Lymphatic System. Please click here to watch this educational video!
Our lymphatic system, much like the blood vessels and arteries in our body, runs all through the body. This system is a complex one, and has three main missions. It carries away excess fluids in the body, it carries away fat and fatty acids to the circulatory system for removal, and it is the central part of what most people call “the immune system.” Obviously, the lymphatic system’s health is vitally important to overall health.
The lymphatic system has been recognized by doctors for its importance to preventative healthcare. Lymphatic function supports every other system in the body, including the immune, digestive, detoxification, and nervous systems. Many believe that poor lymph health is the underlying cause of a lot of conditions, from cellulite to cancer.
The lymphatic system has no central pump but depends on muscle contraction and manual manipulation to move fluid. Deep breathing is one way we can enhance movement of lymph through our bodies, but our lymph system is best stimulated by movement of the body. The reason that clusters of lymph nodes are located in the arm pits, the groin, and other constantly moving areas is for that reason. As we age we become less active, and the normal stimulation needed by lymph nodes to pump lymph fluid around the body, filter it, rejuvenate it, and attack biological intruders is not as effective. It is one of the reasons that older people are more susceptible to illness. But there is a way to deal with this challenge.
Whole Body Vibration training and therapy stimulates the lymphatic system. It causes immune response in the lymph nodes, giving the body better defenses against illnesses. Whole Body Vibration exercise also causes the lymph system to drain more efficiently, getting trapped fats and biological intruders on their way out of the body through the circulatory systems filters. In short, the vibrations of the Whole Body Vibration exercise platform cause dozing lymph nodes to wake up and do the work they are intended to do, especially in the aging body where lymph health is even more vital to overall health.
Are you a senior who recognizes that you have less and less energy and your muscles are feeling weaker by the day? Inactivity leads to muscle deterioration. As your muscles deteriorate and become weak and you add poor circulation it becomes increasingly difficult to exercise or take up any activity which will help improve the condition.
Whole body vibration is a comfortable workout. It builds strong muscle tissue without putting stress on your joints and without the need for a strenuous exercise. It is a fitness regime that is perfect for the person who has not worked out for a long period of time.
You will notice within 3 to 5 minutes of using whole body vibration that your body is more flexible and you have better range of motion. You have a sense of well-being and enhanced quality of life.
The medical community seems to believe that multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disorder. The symptoms seem to be a bit different from patient to patient. Research is being pursued in a wide variety of ways throughout the world but, further research is needed to actually pinpoint the cause of MS.
Since, at this point, there is not a cure for MS, the patient must concentrate on reducing the effects of MS on their body. Whole body Vibration can help in a noticeable way.
Fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, pain, sedentary life style all become factors in MS. Most patients say exercise becomes a must. It makes the difference in how well the body functions.
Whole Body Vibration may improve stamina, circulation, pelvic floor function, overall feeling of well-being, cognitive function of the brain and reduce spasticity and infections. Whole body vibration does not add stress to the muscles and joints.
Muscle strength prevents injury. If you trip or become unbalanced you need muscle strength to right yourself. When your muscle is forced to hold a certain position for a length of time on the vibration plate your body begins to activate and then recruit more and more motor units.
These motor units are usually not activated during everyday routine movement. Sometimes they are brought into use for the first time in years. This strengthens the muscle. These motor units are forced to contract continuously, time after time. The muscle is forced to mature very quickly. The muscle achieves a state of maximum contraction which is very safe and very effective.
Whole body vibration simulates the muscle and brings great circulation to the body. It is a wonderful tool for anti-aging. With strong muscles you can live a longer healthier life. Whole body vibration prevents muscle loss related to the aging process by affecting virtually every muscle in your body without overload and dramatically reducing strain on joints, ligaments and tendons.
Relaxation brought on by whole body vibration has a diminishing effect on pain by the release of endorphins, encephalin and other pain-reducing neuro-chemicals. Sensory receptors are activated that stimulate and soothe the nervous system.
Results will depend on the amplitude and the frequency applied. The nerves respond to the rhythmic movements of the vibration because of the excitement to the nervous system.
Neuropathy can be caused be many different systems in your body. Peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system.
It can affect the nervous system in your legs, feet, arms or hands.
Approximately 1% of the world population suffer from peripheral small fiber neuropathy. 50% of this population are elderly diabetics. However, peripheral neuropathy does not only happen to diabetics.
Peripheral neuropathy is characterized by the dysfunction of the small nerve fibers in the epidermis. Some of the symptoms are pain, tingling sensations, discoloration, atrophy, burning, weakness, sensitivity to touch, sensitivity to hot or cold and malfunction of the sweat glands.
Pain can vary from slight numbness, mild tingling, or severe pain. Individuals with peripheral neuropathy are more prone to injury because of loss of coordination and balance due to the numbness and pain in their legs and feet. Safety in walking becomes an issue. Control of the diabetes can help but other treatments are limited.
Whole body vibration is a new modality which can be used for relief in some people. See the research below and consider trying it as a alternate natural treatment with the possibility of pain relief.
Osteoporosis is a disease of the skeletal system characterized by low bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue. Osteoporosis is a significant public health problem that leads to increased bone fragility and an increased risk of bone fractures typically in the wrist, hip, and spine.
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) therapy is an attractive alternative to drugs for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. The attractiveness of WBV lies in its ability to be applied in a low impact manner, which is critical for individuals with impaired mobility and attenuated muscle strength. There is no stress to the joints.
Studies show that WBV delivers mechanical loading to the skeleton, which increases bone mass and improves postural balance by strengthening skeletal muscles.
Weight bearing exercise is commonly accepted as a way to to increase bone density. WBV signals the brain to produce more bone mineral to handle the extra weight your body thinks it is carrying. With WBV their is no need to use actual weights, however smaller weights can be used to further strengthen muscles.
There have been many questions about foot pain and Plantar Fasciitis when using Whole Body Vibration. In general, Vibration Therapy will help stretch, massage and strengthen the muscles in the foot. The following is an explanation of Plantar Fasciitis, a common foot problem that is often helped with WBV.
Under normal circumstances, your plantar fasciia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch in your foot. But, if tension on that bowstring becomes too great, it can create small tears in the fasciia. Repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the fasciia to become irritated or inflamed.
Doctors may hesitate prescribing medication or surgically ‘going in’ to bring the fasciia ‘back to life’ because the problem is often not with the tissues directly but with the acidic lifestyle, diet and metabolism that is affecting the tissues.
Whole Body Vibration using Oscillating/Pivotal Technology approximately ten minutes a day will increase lymphatic circulation to remove acids from the plantar fasciia. The Vibration Therapy also helps to vibrate acids out of the tissues causing the pain or inflammation. Involuntary muscle contractions will also help tone and build weak muscles in the legs and feet helping to improve balance, coordination, and other possible lower extremity issues.
We all talk about circulation. We know that without good circulation our feet or hands become numb. We are always cold. When standing on the vibration plate the rhymic contractions of the muscle encourage blood circulation. Every capillary will be enlarged, so blood evenly flows into the smallest capillaries in our body.
This blood circulation improves the delivery and removal of metabolic waste. As waste products are removed more quickly the body recovers more rapidly. Whole body vibration increases the number of functional red blood cells and also increases the presence of white blood cells in the capillaries.
Whole body vibration feels good! Some research has reported that stress is responsible for 80 to 90 percent of disease. Whatever our age and situation, we all have stress in our everyday life. Whole body vibration can perform like a drug-free medicine. It is a very effective tool to reduce the experience of stress.
It has a positive effect on the production of serotonin the happy hormone. Cortisol, the stress hormone is balanced, thus a decrease in stress levels and depression. The massaging effect of the vibrations initiates an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels.
Whole body vibration in the easy way to feel good and fight off the symptoms of stress burnout.
TMJ, short for Temporomandibular Joint, is a hinge joint that connects the back of the jaw to the temporal bone of the skull just in front of each ear. This joint along with the surrounding soft tissues of muscles and ligaments aids in the ability to open and close the jaw during talking, chewing, and yawning.
Did you know that it’s the most active joint of the body moving upwards around 2,000 times per day? When this joint becomes misaligned, the result can often be popping or clicking when opening the jaw. Eventually, this improper motion can lead to pain around the joint, jaw-locking, or even headaches.
The symptoms of TMJ can sometimes be improved by whole body vibration.
Varicose veins are diseased blood vessels that have become permanently dilated and can no longer efficiently carry blood back to the heart which can result in pain, swelling, inflammation, skin ulcers, and blood clots.
Whole Body Vibration exercises, in many instances, yield quick and visible results. After only ten minutes on a Whole Body Vibration platform one often sees that the skin of the lower leg is colored pink. This is a sign that the blood vessels in that area are open and circulation is returning. Some people report feeling a ‘tingly’ sensation after the exercise that results as the blood starts following again.
Bulging and painful varicose veins are caused by valve leakage in the blood vessels. Due to gravity, blood would normally flow back into the lower extremities. The only way the body is able to pump the blood back to the heart is using these valves, preventing the blood from flowing back down and “pooling” in the ankles and feet. A Whole Body Vibration machine greatly stimulates the circulation of blood thus increasing the oxygen levels substantially. This in turn will improve the return flow of the blood to the heart if the vibration exercises are done on a regular basis.
Exercise tips: While on the Whole Body Vibration platform it is helpful to perform the exercises dynamically. Slowly rising up with your toes and then rocking back onto your heals while the machine is vibrating is very effective. You can also do massage exercises, which are very important for circulation; first massage around the varicose veins, always rubbing towards the heart and then allow the affected areas to gently rest on the vibrating plate for a few minutes.
Additionally, Whole Body Vibration exercise stimulates production of collagen, which, along with keratin, is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Collagen is the primary component of connective tissues and gives bones the elastic quality that improves fracture resistance. Collagen also strengthens blood vessels and improves venous return–both of which help prevent spider veins and the more serious varicose veins.
Whole body vibration encourages weight loss. If you have been unsuccessful at losing weight, you have probably tried numerous fad diets that count calories, carbs, proteins, have good fat or bad fat. The real key to weight loss is to burn more body energy/ calories than we eat.
Our body needs to use the energy currently available, the meal we last digested, and then begin burning stored energy, fat! The stored energy of the fat cell is released and now becomes part of our muscular movement.
Our body's fat burning engine or our metabolism is put into high gear when we have more muscle movement. As we move, more fat cells are transformed into muscle. Our metabolism continues to rise and burn even more calories.
Whole body vibration contracts and releases nearly every muscle in our bodies numerous times per second. The movement helps burn calories, build stronger muscle and increases metabolism.
As you use whole body vibration you will have more energy because you have raised you metabolic rate. You will begin to look for and enjoy other physical activities that you may have given up. This will burn even more calories.
Whole body vibration, also balances the hormones that the body needs to burn fat. It raises your resting metabolic rate, increases muscle tone, is easy on your joints and most of all it makes you feel good.
See it for yourself by trying it for several weeks. With this weight loss chart you can measure your progress and see how whole body vibration will help shrink your waistline as well as all those other ‘lines’ on your body!
Whole body vibration is FAST, FUN,and EASY!!
Parkinson’s Disease and Whole Body Vibration
Whole Body Vibration, Exercise May Improve Motor Performance In Parkinson's. Pharmacologic intervention is the current standard of care for Parkinson's disease, yet medications frequently fail to control some symptoms, including tremor and postural instability
