Whole Body Vibration training is low impact and gentle, enabling anyone regardless of their age or fitness levels, to gain the benefits of exercise without straining the body. Whole Body Vibration is particularly useful in combating cellulite. According to an article by Dr. Mercola, (“The most effective strategies for eliminating cellulite, April 2013”) whole body vibrations cause thousands of muscle contractions that pump your lymphatic fluid out of problem areas, reducing fluid congestion in your tissues. This helps to flush out toxins and ease the load on your immune system. This mechanism has been scientifically shown to actually help rid your body of excess pounds and cellulite.
We encourage the use of our Whole Body Vibration in all of our Body Contouring programs. Whole Body Vibration has so many benefits including helping to tighten and tone muscles, increase circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage.
Whole Body Vibration Session
Each vibration plate session is 10-minutes long. You can choose to focus on the upper body, core, lower body, or complete a whole body program.
How do vibration plates work?
With a simple touch of a button, a vibrating platform produces a vertical vibration. The platform transfers vibrations into the muscles causing them to contract in a reflex action.
This process exploits the body’s innate reflexive response to disruptions in stability, which stimulates enhanced muscle strength and performance.
Different parts of the body are put in contact with the platform in various exercise positions ranging from squats, lunges and push-ups to abdominal crunches, tricep dips or bicep curls. Each posture is held for just 30 seconds to 1 minute at a time activating multiple muscle groups simultaneously to stretch, tone and strengthen.
The equivalent of 60 minutes of conventional strenuous exercise can be achieved in just 10 minutes. It is so effective; three 5 to 10 minute sessions a week are enough to make a difference!
