Whole Body Vibration
Whole body vibration encourages weight loss. If you have been unsuccessful at losing weight, you have probably tried numerous fad diets that count calories, carbs, proteins, have good fat or bad fat. The real key to weight loss is to burn more body energy/ calories than we eat.
Studies show that WBV delivers mechanical loading to the skeleton, which increases bone mass and improves postural balance by strengthening skeletal muscles.
Whole Body Vibration exercises, in many instances, yield quick and visible results. After only ten minutes on a Whole Body Vibration platform one often sees that the skin of the lower leg is colored pink. This is a sign that the blood vessels in that area are open and circulation is returning.
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) works by transferring vibrations from an oscillating platform to muscles throughout the body, enabling them to contract and relax multiple times per second in a reflex action. WBV exercise increases blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles, prompting both elasticity and explosive power.
Whole body vibration machines enhance not only the blood circulation, but also the lymph flow, contributing to a better drainage. The lymphatic system, which is made of a network of vessels and nodes, is responsible for collecting and transporting tissue fluids from the intercellular spaces in all tissues, back in the blood system.
When circulation within this web of connective tissue becomes blocked, cellular waste stagnates, and these tissues harden as the skin loses its elasticity. Improved circulation will carry vital oxygen to your cells and tissues, assist in flushing toxins, while increasing the production of collagen. Result: significant reduction of cellulite.
