We all know we should exercise, but who has the time? Modern technology was supposed to make life easier. We get bombarded with an average of 75,000 marketing messages a day! Constant access to information anywhere-anytime is overwhelming people. We are now expected to be accessible and respond immediately. Our neurological system is overtaxed, resulting in the syndrome of “Time Crunch”. This results in an explosion of “Degenerative Disorders” such as osteoporosis and fall prevention.

HEALTH & WELLNESS
What is Health: (WHO) “Health is a State of complete physical mental and social well-being, not just merely the absence of disease or infirmity”
What is Wellness: (Dunn- 1953): “An Integrated method of functioning which is oriented towards maximizing the potential of which the individual is capable. This requires a continuum of balance and purposeful direction”
WBV is a form of exercise that allows you the gain all of the physiological benefits of exercise in a condensed time frame. The muscles are forced to contract anywhere from 20-50 times every second, and every contraction recruits nearly 100% of the muscle fibers. Whichever body tissue is put in line and “loaded” on the vibration platform is where the effect of vibration will be felt. This allows the user to get a whole body workout in only 10 minutes a day. Virtually any exercise can be performed on a WBV platform! It will be more of a static exercise where the user holds the position and the machine creates the motion. Chiropractors and Physical Therapists use WBV to accelerate rehabilitation time and efforts, as an adjunct to their treatment efforts and as a form of therapy. This modality is very easy to implement and very safe to use.
