Who can benefit from Whole Body Vibration?
Anyone that is wanting to increase their energy levels, strengthen muscles and improve general health.
WBV is recommended by HEALTH CANADA and the SURGEON GENERAL of the United States* as one of the therapies that can be used in the fight against Osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease that affects over 1.4 million Canadians. Bones become fragile and more likely to break if left untreated. Bone density will increase significantly if whole body vibration treatments are taken three times per week over the course of twelve months.
SENIORS AND OTHERS UNABLE TO EXERCISE REGULARLY
Whole body vibration is a low impact, non strenuous activity that provides multiple benefits. Age and illness related exercise challenges can be expedited through the use of Whole Body Vibration. By increasing circulation throughout the body without any cardio strain, the client is developing muscle strength, flexibility and assists in the recovery and regeneration of damaged tissues.
"I can't begin to tell you how much this has improved the quality of my life."
ARTHRITIS, OSTEOARTHRITIS AND RHEUMATISM
Whole Body Vibration is proven to help increase blood circulation, flexibility and range of motion without putting stress on the joints. It is a non strenuous form of exercise that has been reported to dramatically ease the pain and discomfort of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatism.
CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME AND FIBROMYALGIA
Whole Body Vibration increases blood circulation and improves flexibility and range of motion and has a dramatic effect on those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Clients have reported increased energy levels, reduced aches and pains and better moods.
Weakened back muscles respond very well to the benefits of Whole Body Vibration. By engaging and activating the muscles, they become stronger and less prone to injury. Whole Body Vibration also significantly strengthens the core stabilizer muscles which assist in reducing strain on the weakened back muscles. A short 10 minute treatment prior to receiving therapeutic massage greatly enhances the therapy as the massage therapist is working with muscles that are already warmed up and fluid.
Individuals with MS are unable to exercise or train properly because the brain is no longer capable of communicating with the muscles. Without proper exercise the muscles will eventually atrophy and cause the person to become reduced in their ability to function. WBV allows these individuals to experience strengthening of the muscles, improved balance and coordination.
