Whole Body Vibration
All Seniors Plus adjustable beds and recliner lift chairs come standard with built in Vibration Massage. Vibration Massage is like a Turbo Booster for your circulation. The far reaching benefits of increasing circulation throughout the body (explained below) mean that whether you are in a relaxing deep sleep in your new adjustable bed or just watching the television during the day in your recliner lift chair you know that your entire body is receiving all the support it can to help keep you feeling young, active and independent.
There are now lots of Vibration Massage devices on the market today, however most of them require you to sit in a chair with your feet down flat; by doing this you are counter acting the benefits of the vibration by having your feet pointing straight down. By having your feet and legs elevated either in your adjustable bed or recliner chair you can start to receive the TRUE benefits of Whole Body Vibration.
Benefits of Whole Body Vibration
Worldwide research highlights the physiological and neuromuscular benefits unique to Whole Body Vibration (WBV). These studies show astounding results for improved circulation and health. The technology is being accepted by major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centres in Europe, USA, Canada and Australia.
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION HAS SHOWN, THROUGH EXTENSIVE WORLDWIDE RESEARCH, TO HAVE FAR REACHING HEALTH BENEFITS.
Increased blood circulation is a notable benefit of Vibration, even at low speeds. As a result, your cells receive more oxygen and nourishment. The body also develops better lymphatic drainage to improve our overall health and immunity. It does this by taking away waste products and moving white blood cells to where they are needed. White blood cells are like the ‘cavalry’ of the body-removing debris from broken down cells and attacking invading agents, such as poisons and bacteria.
Using the Whole Body Vibration technology in your new bed or chair may improve circulation and carry vital oxygen to your cells and tissue, assist in flushing toxins, while increasing your production of collagen; this may result in firmer smoother skin.
Strong bones are what keep us young! Extensive studies show that after 39 years of age, women have a rate of bone loss double the rate of men! This is serious stuff. The exciting news is that WBV can provide excellent results and with little effort. This is according to the ground breaking study reported in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research in 2006. The fact that scientific research has shown Vibration massage can help fight Osteoporosis is exciting. So for older generations this could well be the most important discovery in decades.
For Back Pain
Back pain can be debilitating and affects millions! A study by Manchester Metropolitan University showed that Whole Body Vibration can reduce chronic lower back pain by 70% in just 3 months because Vibration increases circulation to problem areas.
Gentle Vibration may prevent age-related muscle loss, increase flexibility and range of motion. It also stimulates the production of collagen, creating more beautiful skin. It’s all possible!
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) massage can help with the rehabilitation process of many injuries and procedures such as knee and hip replacements. Physiotherapists and chiropractors have found WBV to be an invaluable tool – having the ability to strengthen muscles without the usual strain on joints and ligaments. The process of rehabilitation involves an increase in blood flow causing a dramatic spike in Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – the key to regeneration and repair of soft tissue.
While improved circulation also helps to drain fluid build-up from injured tissue, Vibration may stimulate a combined release of hormones and natural chemicals to suppress pain. Whole Body Vibration used for rehab really is a ‘wonder therapy’.
