Vibration Therapy? 


The Health Benefits of Vibration Exercises
 

When you use a vibration plate device your body will make a huge number of involuntary muscle contractions every minute.  In fact, the total amount has been calculated as being up to 3000 each minute that you stand on the plate.

This natural reaction is what makes this a fantastic way of working out that doesn’t need you to put a lot of effort into it.  It works by fooling your body into thinking that you are off-balance, so you need to instinctively try to find your balance all the time.


The whole body vibration activity benefits your health in numerous ways.  The high-frequency oscillations that are produced by the vibration plate go through your body affecting positively every cell, tissue, and organ on their way.

The vibrations speed up your metabolism, increase muscle movement, improve circulation and promote optimal lymph drainage.


Does Vibration Therapy improve lymphatic drainage?

There is a significant volume of scientific evidence, such as this study, that proves the use of vibration therapy for lymphatic drainage.  The whole-body vibration stimulates the lymphoid system to get rid of excess toxins more efficiently, and increases the immune response in the lymph nodes, thus allowing the body to build a better defense against diseases.
