The vibration plate was originally used by Russian scientists as an experiment to stop the reduction of bone density and muscle atrophy in cosmonauts. The vibration plate was found to not only stop the loss, but generate an increase. Physical and mental well being is acquired through developing better oxygen distribution among cells, improving the intake of cellular nutrients and assisting in the removal of cellular waste. The natural healing response of the body is stimulated when the functionality of the cells is restored.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
When standing on the plate, the entire body vibrates due to the high frequency of the platform, which causes the muscles to contract and stretch in order to sustain balance. These natural reflexes are involuntary and happen very rapidly, much like the knee jerk reaction tested by doctors. Even the most basic exercises, like standing or bending over, will be intensified.
What are the health benefits?
Stimulate lymphatic system
Increased blood flow
Increased bone mass
Decrease in cortisol levels
How do you use it?
Stand or place your feet on the vibration machine shoulder width apart. You may place your hands on the wall to help balance. The machine vibrates for ten minutes. You can exercise your arms, legs, glutes, or just breathe while the machine does its job. There are complementary exercises you can do while on the machine, but are not required to feel the benefits of the vibration plate!
Who should not use it?
If any of the following applies to you, it is not recommended that you use the vibration plate:
Acute thrombosis, acute hernia, discopathy, epilepsy, pregnancy, recent wounds from surgery, recent hip/knee implants, recent infections, recently placed IUD’s, metal pins or plates, severe diabetes, serious cardiovascular disease, severe migraines, spondylosis, or tumors.
