With whole-body vibration, you stand or sit on a vibrating platform. As the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to your body, forcing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second. The activity may cause you to feel as if you're exerting yourself.
Advocates say that as little as 15 minutes a day of whole-body vibration three times a week may aid weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, build strength and decrease the stress hormone cortisol.
Using a vibration plate for health benefits dates back to ancient Greece, but the concept of whole body vibration transitioned from unproven concept to serious science when a space program used it to simulate the weight of gravity for astronauts who would otherwise lose muscle tissue and bone density while living in space’s zero-gravity atmosphere.
As you sit or stand (always with knees at least slightly bent!) on the vibration plate, your muscles contract and relax 30 times each second. As your body works to regain stability, multiple muscle fibers become engaged in each movement, significantly amplifying the effectiveness of any movement performed on the plate. This is why doing squats on a vibrating plate requires so much more energy than doing them on the ground.
The variation applied in different angles enhances the performance of the exercise by activating more muscle fibers which leads to muscle growth and increased muscle density and the loss of weight in some cases.
Benefits of using a vibration plate are as follows:
Lower Blood Pressure:
Whole body vibration has been demonstrated to reduce hardening of the arteries in study after study, among populations ranging from men in their mid-twenties to postmenopausal women. In each study, the subjects' blood pressure was lowered significantly.
Stronger Bone Density:
Using a vibration plate three times per week for 15 minutes has been shown to improve bone density, providing people with a drug free alternative to osteoporosis prevention, management and improvement.
Better Balance, Flexibility, Coordination:
During traditional exercise, muscles contract 1-2 times per second as opposed to 30 contractions per second while using a vibration machine. Standing, or better yet performing exercises, on the vibration plate engages your core and hip flexors to stabilize your body. This makes your body work harder and eventually, the muscles around the joints grow stronger. Over time, you’ll notice that your balance, coordination, posture, and flexibility have improved.
Increase Immunity and Stimulate Lymphatic System:
As muscles repeatedly contract and relax, the blood circulation in your body increases. Increased blood flow makes sure that your muscles are oxygenated, which speeds up the recovery process and rejuvenates the body. Improvement in blood circulation also leads to faster metabolic waste removal.
Vibration Plates stimulate the lymphatic system causing an immune response in the lymph nodes, and giving the body better defenses against illnesses. The Life Pro Vibration Plate exercise also causes the lymph system to drain more efficiently, getting trapped fats and toxins on their way out of the body through the natural filters of the circulatory system. This is especially important for the aging body where lymph health is ever more vital to overall health.
Lower Cortisol Levels:
Cortisol is a stress hormone released by the adrenal glands. While cortisol is important for helping your body deal with stressful situations, when cortisol levels are too high for too long, this hormone can hurt you more than it helps. When cortisol levels remain high over an extended time they can cause weight gain and high blood pressure, disrupt sleep, negatively impact mood, reduce your energy levels, and contribute to diabetes.
Vibration Plates can serve as a great warm up or cool down from activity, or just a supplement to your regular exercise regime.
In some situations a vibration plate can disrupt someone's energy so it is required that you check with your doctor before using it, especially if you're pregnant or have any health problems. It is your responsibility to have researched according to your health situation prior to coming to your service and with this you acknowledge the risks involved in the use of the Life Pro Vibration Plate. You understand use of the Life Pro Vibration Plate is at your own risk. With this knowledge you hereby release Nibana Salt & Wellness and its staff from all claims and liabilities arising from the use or misuse of the Life Pro Vibration Plate indemnifying and holding Nibana Salt & Wellness from all claims and liabilities wherefrom, whatsoever.
