Whole body vibration therapy -Taking A Natural Systemic Approach to Healing
Whole body Vibration Therapy is accomplished by standing on a platform of a machine that vibrates in frequencies varying from 10 hertz to 60 hertz. This form of therapy is ideal for those individuals who may not be able to tolerate the requirements of standard resistance training. Additionally, whole body vibration therapy is specifically indicated for those individuals who may have lymphedema (which can be the result of many different medical conditions).
This form of therapy / exercise usually involves approx. 10 minutes of vibration per visit. Vibration exercise has the competitive advantage over conventional training due to its ability to provide a more effective and efficient exercise without the constraints associated with other forms of training such as joint stress, lengthy repetitions and time commitments.
