Whole Body Vibration Brings a New Buzz to Fitness and Effective Treatment
Have you investigated the secrets of whole body vibration (WBV), in which you stand on a platform that provides gentle to challenging, constant vibration that reverberates through the body?
Originally developed for Russian cosmonauts to preserve muscle and bone mass in zero gravity conditions, WBV is gaining confidence among health practitioners-particularly those who treat athletic populations and people compromised by disease, age or disability.
WBV is already employed extensively in Europe and Asia. And practitioners in the United States are becoming aware of its systemic effects and therapeutic applications. We have been using it at Optimal Health and Wellness Center in the form of Vibration and Oscillation Exercise.
Vibration therapy is still a new concept and much research is yet to be performed. However, the consistent findings to date are compelling.
