Whole body vibration is the activity of standing, sitting, lying or doing exercises on equipment specifically designed to oscillate, usually on a horizontal plane, at frequencies that force your body’s muscles to contract and relax repeatedly each second.
Initially, whole body vibration therapy (WBVT) was developed for use by athletes to improve the effectiveness of their training.
The vibration platform generates signals that are transferred into the body’s tissues, tendons and muscles. The increase in muscle contractions contributes to improved muscle strength, co-ordination and balance.
The side to side rocking action engages rapid-fire involuntary muscle contractions without any effort from you. This helps stimulate your muscles without using unpleasant electric shocks – unlike many circulation machines!
Feel stronger faster – Work all muscles at once! Enjoy life to the full! – Feel vitality returning. So easy!
The key to a healthy, strong and in most cases, pain-free back, is core strength. With strong core muscles, you develop better posture and have a greater chance to reduce back pain. Whole body vibration can activate those ‘key’ stabilising muscles at your body’s core.
Whole body vibration has also been shown to help reduce and prevent the effects of fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, diabetes type 2, cerebral palsy and rheumatoid arthritis.
Whole body vibration (WBV) has been used in Sports Medicine to aid injury rehabilitation and research across a range of illness and injury has demonstrated recovery contribution by WBV. Sports teams, physiotherapists and chiropractors use Vibration as part of their daily practice. It can be an invaluable tool for strengthening muscles without the usual strain on joints and ligaments.
Vibration stimulates the release of naturally occurring substances which the body uses to suppress pain and utilises as part of natural repair and regeneration of soft tissue.
We all know how awesome a massage makes us feel. Our post on the benefits of massage include the many health benefits like relaxing and soothing sore muscles, reducing stress, tension and anxiety, and regulating high blood pressure and improving blood flow.
Massage is so easy and beneficial, and is so simple on the CV12 and CV9. The raised platform of the CV12 makes it ideal for seated massage but for full body you can’t go past the CV9.
