What Is Whole Body Vibration?

Whole Body Vibration (WBV) occurs when you stand or sit on a vibrating platform. It transmits energy to your body, forcing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second as the machine vibrates. This activity stimulates muscles, connective tissues, organs, skin, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Advocates say that as little as 10 minutes of whole-body vibration may aid weight loss, firm skin, burn fat, improve flexibility, build bones, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, enhance blood circulation, build and much more.

How Does WBV Work?

The side-to-side motion from Whole Body Vibration forces your body to regain balance at an extremely accelerated rate. Every muscle in your body is engaged in this act of rebalancing, therefore, 97% of your muscles are activated during your WBV session. The treatment activates every muscle group in your body at an accelerated rate of thirty muscle contractions per second. The muscle contractions cause you to burn fat and build muscle. The ability to change the amplitude and speed of the vibration makes Whole Body Vibration safe for all ages and walks of life.

Why is WBV So Important Immediately Following Body Contouring Treatments?

WBV stimulates the both the vascular and lymphatic circulatory system. In regards to weight loss and post body-contouring treatments, your goal is to burn calories and triglycerides, which the vibration therapy can assist in dramatically. Also, WBV increases lymphatic circulation, which is crucial when it comes to ridding the body of damaging toxins that are released from fat cells during and after body contouring treatments.

What are the potential effects of WBV?

  • Accelerates weight loss

  • Enhances conventional training results
  • Speeds training recovery
  • WBV Therapy results in 50-60 active muscle contractions per second however; without physical exertion of the individual
  • WBV causes between 95-97% active muscle spindle responses compared with 40-45% activity with traditional physical activities. This is an extremely efficient total muscle mass stimulation and significant rehabilitative tool in individuals aged and or disabled

"After 4 visits I started to notice a difference in how I felt. Two months after I could straighten my arm with no elbow pain. My back no longer hurts from standing for long periods of time. My knees are much better and I try to come everyday because of how good Dr. Darin has made me feel."

- Carlos M.

"My treatment has been great, I no longer have chronic problems with my neck or lower back. The amazing thing is when I do exercises that are stressful to the lower back (Squats, Lunges,etc), I have had no residual pain from doing these exercises. This has been a great experience for me and my body."

- Mark D.

"I the first 3 months of treatment with Dr. Darin I noticed vast improvements in my posture. I now have improved balance and less pain. Dr. Darin is a great doctor and you can tell by the way he cares for and treats his patients. I highly recommend his practice to anyone suffering from spinal issues. You will leave feeling like a whole new person."
