Whole Body Vibration (WBV)
Picture the equivalent of 45 minutes of exercise in just 10 minutes! Whole body vibration is now utilized by Olympic athletes, professional sports teams, and people just like you suffering from neuropathy, back, hip, knee and other pains. Why? Because it creates a vibrating motion that is transferred up through your body and causes your tissues and muscles contract and relax. We have FIVE platforms that are set to vibrate at 3300 times per minute. This causes the muscles to tone and strengthen faster than any other workout.
The benefits of WBV for you are:
- Provides an increase in circulation primarily in your legs and feet
- Provides an increase in lymphatic drainage (which could decrease swelling in your legs)
- Provides an increase in the release of feel-good hormones
- Provides a lowering of the stress hormone cortisol (the hormone that makes you gain weight)
- Provides you with better balance
- Proven to improve bone density
