Our bodies were made to move. Movement helps circulation, metabolism, bone mass, muscle mass and much more. Sometimes we don't always move as much as our bodies require to stay in optimal condition. Sometimes as we age, we just don't feel like running, walking or exercising. Other factors can contribute to the fact that we just don't move as much as we should. Enter Whole Body Vibration therapy! At Rejuva Wellness, we encourage clients to start out slow on lower levels of vibration and work up to 15 - 20 minutes per session. Call 317-52-2210 and ask for a free demo!
Increases physical strength, dexterity and endurance
Mechanical Vertical Vibration create stretch reflexes in your tendons thereby stimulating involuntary muscle contractions throughout your body via your nervous and musculo-skeletal system. These repeated oscillations stimulate repeated contractions, like repetitions of a weight exercise at the gym, resulting in increased muscle strength and work tolerance. WBV provides enhanced power training to principle muscle groups in less time.
Improves balance and coordination
The moving plate stimulates stretch receptors and tendon reflexes in your joints. This stimulates increased receptor activity in a safe environment, challenging your balance and coordination systems.
Increases bone density
Can reverse the effects of osteoporosis by increasing the mechanical stressors on the bones via the involuntary muscle contractions created by the machine as well as balancing the hormones within the body.
Reduces joint pain & inflammation while reducing ligamentous stress
The vertical movement creates a stretching in the joints, increasing space and replacing fluid between the bones as well as stimulating a dramatic increase of critical blood flow to these areas. It is especially good for spinal tightness. WBV improves mobility and flexibility of your joints and relieves stress to joints, ligaments and tendons while releasing tension throughout your body.
Speeds recovery from surgery or trauma
The improved blood and lymph circulation created by the vibration speed up healing time by the body. The serotonin release decreases emotional trauma effect by the patient and HGH release aids in body recovery as well. By increasing the overall balance of the body, Whole Body Vibration stimulates a more efficient rate of recovery starting at the cellular level of the body. WBV training also prevents loss of muscular strength from surgery due to lack of exercise during the initial recovery period.
Increased circulation of blood & improvement of cardiovascular system
Blood vessels are located between muscles that “pump” the blood throughout your body. The vibrations create muscle contractions, which in turn promote blood flow through to the next area, increasing cardiac output and overall circulation. This is great for people who are either inactive, starting to get active, have circulation problems etc. Scientists are comparing it to a full hour of cardiovascular workout.
WBV stimulates your nervous system’s proprioceptors, triggering your muscles and joints to remind you of where you are in space. Sort of like a work out for your nerve receptors. Muscle contraction is an all or nothing nervous response to stimulus so there you have it, instant nervous system stimulation. WBV can stimulate those muscles that the brain is unable to find, thereby minimizing lower body atrophy in spinal chord patients.
Increased lymph drainage & detoxification of systems
The lymphatic system is connected to every organ in the body and is absolutely essential in purifying the body to strengthen the entire immune system. Many consider the proper lymphatic drainage to be even more important than blood circulation. These fluids, however, require the pumping actions of movement and exercise, which is often severely limited in today’s sedentary society of increased toxins and poor nutrition. Vibration therapy stimulates lymph drainage to promote detoxification and strengthening of the immune system. As mentioned above, the lymph system is a primary way to dispose of toxins and keep our body healthy. Inactivity as well as over bombardment of toxins leads to stagnation of the Lymph system. WBV stimulates the lymph system to improve the rate at which toxins are disposed from our body, thus accelerating your body’s healing response. New cells are more resilient, vibrant, and function together more cohesively as a healthier, longer lasting body.
Relieves menopausal symptoms
Improved body efficiency and improvement of hormonal systems effects those at any age, especially those needing increased hormonal balance during body-life transitions.
Improved mood and energy level – Increased secretion of serotonin, a hormone which is used in many anti- depressants, is released into the body.
Increased Hormone Production
WBV increases the release of hormones that are important in the regeneration & repair processes of our bodies, such as:
· Human Growth Hormone, which increases up to %460.
· Serotonin, “the neurotransmitter of happiness, relaxation and well-being”
· Neurotrophine, a hormone that stimulates brain activity
· Testosterone, the male hormone that keeps men and women frisky and feeling young
· IGF-1, another growth hormone that slows the aging process and in many cases, even reverses its effects
· When you increase the number of optimal functioning cells, this promotes improved strength, stamina, coordination, mental clarity, as well as vitality and overall well-being. Users of the TSVS have also experienced accelerated recovery from injuries and disappearance of chronic symptoms.
Decreases Stress levels
Daily life is stressful, causing the release of toxic stress hormones such as cortisol and epinephrine. These chemicals through the immune system out of balance as well as destroy brain cells by the millions. WBV increases human growth hormone and serotonin secretion, thereby lowering cortisol and epinephrine secretion up to 31%. This plus the increased circulatory effects of WBV positively counteract the effects of stress on the body as well as the spirit.
WBV stimulates the body’s own healing response as well as stimulating the regeneration of healthy cells. Using the platform also prevents loss of muscular strength from surgery due to lack of exercise during the initial recovery period. Athletes use the WBV training to maintain higher levels of overall fitness and to hasten recovery from injuries.Type your paragraph here.
