Vibration Therapy
By: Dr. Ronald Whitfield D.C.

VibraWav is the ultimate health and wellness solution. Harnessing the power of Whole Body Vibration, VibraWav developed the lowest cost, highest value vibration platforms available today. Vibration Therapy is a quicker, safer and more effective method of putting the human body in an ideal health state where it recovers and heals much quicker than other methods used by traditional health and wellness providers

What is Whole Body Vibration Therapy (WBVT)?

Whole Body Vibration is a type of exercise using a vibrating base, which delivers a mechanical stimulus characterized by oscillatory motion at approximately 1 to 15 mm rise creating 5hz to 50hz or cycles per second throughout the body. Whole body vibration exposes the entire body to vibration, as opposed to localized vibration (Biomechanical Stimulation), where an isolated muscle or muscle group is stimulated. WBVT exercise platforms enable you to recruit many more muscles than traditional exercise and trigger other whole-body reactions. WBVT causes an involuntary reflex muscle contraction at 5-50 times per second compared to once or twice a second normally, thereby recruiting both fast and slow twitch muscle fibers during a vibration therapy session. Biomechanical parameters include amplitude, frequency, and duration. A ten minute vibration session provides similar health benefits to 60 minutes of traditional cardiovascular, neuromuscular and flexibility exercise training.

How Does Whole Body Vibration Therapy Work?

Vibration training stimulates muscles throughout the entire body, much more effectively than traditional exercise and activity. This stimulation causes the muscles to contract up to 50 times per second and 3,000 times per minute. This creates significantly increased blood-flow with an improvement of transport for oxygen/carbon dioxide, vitality components (micro-nutrients), energy components (macro-nutrients) and toxins and waste (i.e. lactic acid) all the way down to the cellular level. Vibration training provides better results in just 10 minutes as compared to 60 minutes of traditional exercise. Through vibration 100% of the muscle fiber is being stimulated versus approximately 40% in the same non-vibration exercise. It takes 8 to 10 months of traditional exercise to accomplish the same results that take only 1 month with vibration.

What Does It Help?

Degenerative disease conditions, accelerated aging and diminished capacities ultimately can be attributed to insufficient cellular stimulation. As the living cell struggles with poor nutrition, low oxygen levels, environmental toxins and stagnation of lymphatic fluids, disease conditions develop which accelerate aging and shorten life span.
