Whole Body Vibration Therapy
Whole Body Vibration Training has a broad positive influence on an organism. This type of training/therapy leads to high intensive stimulation, which improves muscle performance, flexibility, nervous function, signitrsificantly increases bone mineral density, physiological secretion of anabolic hormones, growth and anti-aging factors. WBV normalizes/decreases cortisol as an anti-stress effect and is beneficial for balance and mobility as well. Whole Body Vibration therapy is beneficial for people suffering from osteoporosis and obesity, for rehabilitation of nervous and motor function in patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke.
Body Mass Index
Age-related changes in body composition are well-documented with a decrease in lean body mass and a redistribution of body fat generally observed. Whole Body Vibration therapy resulted in positive body composition changes by increasing lean tissue and eliminating fat. Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. BMI is a reliable indicator of total body fat, which is directly related to the risk of disease and death. The score is valid for both men and women. Unsure of you BMI?

Exposure to Whole Body Vibration has also resulted in a significant improvement in power output and has been demonstrated to lead to better warm-up protocols for athletes competing in sporting events that require high amounts of power output. WBV also facilitates relaxation/cool down activities, gently massaging the muscles and improving oxygenation response in all muscle groups for the rapid recovery of stressed core muscles, ligaments and connective tissue.
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), which may occur after strenuous exercise, can be a serious problem following many sport activities. Whole Body Vibration therapy has been shown to control and prevent DOMS after an aggressive exercise regime improving overall performance.
Call your local Gyms, Recreational Centers and Sport Fitness Training facilities and ask if they offer Whole Body Vibration Therapy and try if for yourself. If they haven’t yet included any WBV opportunities for their clients ask them to consider it.
