Vibrotherapy is a new technology in fitness, sport and rehabiliation. It is a special platform, which creates vibrations throughout the body, causing muscles to contract 30-60 times per second.
Research has shown benefit using the whole body vibration therapy in the following conditions:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Cerebral Palsy
- Parkinson's Disease
- Sports Injuries
- Spinal Misalignment
- Gait disorders
- Joint problems
- Post operation rehabilitation
What are the benefits of Vibration Therapy?
Whole body vibration therapy accelerates the body’s natural healing process. It increases cellular oxygen circulation, stimulates cellular nutrient uptake, enhances cellular fluid movement and assists cellular waste removal. As a result, new cells are more vibrant and resilient.
Moreover, the vibrations increase the production of regenerative and repair hormones, improve blood circulation in skin and muscles, strengthen bone tissue, improve lymph drainage and increase the basal metabolic rate. All this results in more strength, more speed, more stamina, rapid recovery of muscles and tissue, increased flexibility, mobility and coordination, anti-cellulitis, collagen improvement, and fat reduction.
Vibration therapy offers a host of benefits. It helps to improve:
range of motion
serotonin levels which improve mood and energy levels
basal metabolic rate
It helps to reduce:-
- blood pressure
- fat and cellulite
There are certain conditions where Vibration Therapy is not appropriate, notably pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, pacemaker, hip or knee replacements, diabetes, epilepsy, tumors, migraine, acute hernia, recently replaced pins or plates, recent infections, or recent surgeries. RAMS will require the consent of your GP or Consultant before treatment begins.
