Safer resistance exercise - reduced injury risk

When combined with resistance exercise, whole body vibration increases the rate of lean muscle mass development. From another perspective, this also means that smaller weights can be used to achieve the same results. Smaller weights improve safety and makes resistance exercise more accessible and effective to people whose physical disposition is not conducive to this form of exercise.

As a whole-body massage, TheraVibe™ gently manipulates joints and improves range and freedom of movement. The perfect way to spend idle time while waiting to tee off.

Professional sports – improved range of motion

Whole body massage, and especially low-frequency (below 6Hz) improves flexibility and balance. In the professional sporting area whole body massage can provide that edge that results in a win.

Intense training recovery

Certain training regimes like CrossFit employ and intensive, short duration workout that stress muscles to exhaustion. These intense workouts can result in muscle stiffness and soreness, especially when starting this kind of exercise regime. As a post-workout cool down, TheraVibe’s whole body massage stimulates the body’s fluid balance and detoxification mechanisms, reducing lactic acid build-up and reducing stiffness.

Nutrition & supplements

One of our strongest advocates sells nutritional supplements and detoxification products. Used in conjunction with TheraVibe whole body massage, there is a measurable increase in the efficacy of these products because the improved blood circulation aids nutrient delivery and improved lymphatic circulation aids the detoxification process.

General Health Benefits

  • Increased blood circulation means more oxygen and nutrition delivered to cells, especially in areas where circulation is poor as a result of injury or disease.
  • Improved function of the lymphatic system results in improved fluid balance throughout the body, improved fatty acid distribution and improved immune function. The lymphatic system is the garbage collection system for the body, so improved lymphatic health equals more effective waste and toxin removal.
  • Overall joint health, balance, coordination and flexibility result from the influence of the gentle vibration of the joints when standing on the TheraVibe platform. With each movement (occurring several times per second), the ligaments around the joint are gently stretched. The cartilage is palpated, lubricating joint surfaces. With each vibration, a flood of signals travels from the joint to the brain and then back again to the muscles to maintain posture and stability. This process improves coordination and balance.
  • Increased muscle activity leads to an increase in lean muscle mass, while the rhythmic tension of the tendons on the bones is thought to cause of increased bone mass (or reduced loss of bone mass), one of the most researched effects of TWBV.
