WHAT IS WHOLE BODY VIBRATION?
Whole Body Vibration has been used since the early 1900s but has been developed since the 1970s when the Russians used this technology in the development of their athletic programs as well as the Russian Space Programs. Much of this research was done in secret. WBV allowed the Russian astronauts to stay in space for a maximum of 420 days while American astronauts could only stay for 120 days. Since the fall of communism, WBV has been introduced to Europe, establishing itself asa viable alternative for weight/inch loss, rehabilitation and higher level athletic training.
WBV is nowmaking its way into the North American market and is said to be responsible for the incredible shapes of Madonna, Jessica Alba and Claudia Schiffer.
HOW WHOLE BODY VIBRATION WORKS
When a muscle fiber is stretched, it will contract by reflex. By standing on the Vibra Pro, pure vertical vibration is transmitted throughout the whole body. This causes thousands of muscle contractions which increases muscle tone. The movement of the vibration plate simulates the body’s natural reflexes to stretch and contract. Without thinking about it, your body responds with a strong involuntary muscle contraction similar to when your doctor taps on your knee with a reflex hammer. The LHC Vibration platform is the newest leading edge technology that goes beyond the standard mechanical vibration machines. This provides an improved vibration throughout the entire body where you can specify not only the speed of the vibration (Hz) but also the amplitude of each wave.
WHAT WILL WHOLE BODY VIBRATION DO FOR YOU?
Whole Body Vibration sessions last ten minutes and have been reported to provide you with approximately the same benefits of a one hour workout at the gym. It is fast, convenient, doesn’t require changing clothes and you won’t be stiff and sore.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM WHOLE BODY VIBRATION?
Anyone who wants to lose weight, 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.
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.
