History of Whole Body Vibration

Whole Body Vibration has been validated through 40 years of research. The technology utilizes a   frequency range, which has been proven to be both safe and effective. The technology was originally designed to treat bone and lean muscle mass loss in cosmonauts who had spent considerable time in a weightless environment, in addition to enhancing power and strength and accelerating recovery in Russian Olympic athletes. Eventually, the technology was introduced to Europe in the early 1990’s, where further research was done to validate its effects. Due to its many benefits, the technology has quickly gained acceptance and is now utilized by universities, professional sports teams, and health professionals in the rehabilitation and medical fields.

The Proellixe - Technology
When a muscle fiber is stretched, it contracts by reflex (stretch reflex). By simply standing barefoot on the machine, vibration is generated and sent through your body, which passively stretches your muscles. This causes millions of muscle contractions, which increases muscle tone and size. As muscle density increases, your metabolic rate goes up, as an increase in muscle mass requires more energy.

Because whole body vibration is a "passive" exercise, neither perspiration nor lactic acid is generated. What this means for you is no increase in your heart rate, no need for a shower after, and no achy muscles the following day!

Research has demonstrated that a 10-minute whole body vibration workout, barefoot but in the clothes you are wearing during your busy day, delivers the equivalent of an hour of weight training in a gym. However, unlike the time-consuming health club workouts that concentrate on a specific muscle group, whole body vibration exercises muscles in the entire body.

Gloria Taylor Westbank BC Testimonial

I have lived half my life in Caslegar BC and was very excited to learn that Debbie and Brent were incorporating Proellixe Whole Body Vibration into their wellness center. As I suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue,muscle cramping and being very over weight, I decided to start  Vibration training  in Kelowna at Skin Corrections www.skincorrections.ca

I started in May 2006  and as of the end of November 2006 I have lost a total of 37.25 inches and 26lbs!! I have been doing the Vibration training 10 minute a day work out. I now have very minimal pain from fibromyalgia, rarely have muscle cramping, am feeling great, sleeping better, looking better and loving it.

The Vibration training along with the Infrared Sauna and Aqua-Chi detox has changed my life.

How VibroTraining works

VibroGym generates vibrations that are transferred to your body. Standing on the VibroGym you will notice how your body automatically adjusts to these mechanical stimuli responding with a stretch reflex.

The effect of VibroTraining® very much depends on the frequency and intensity of the vibrations. Lower frequency are very effective for strength training, warming up and cooling down as higher frequency are used for massage. With a higher amplitude, the muscles are forced to contract more powerfully - this increases the training effect.

Almost 100% of the body’s muscles are exercised when using VibroTraining®. Conventional training methods only reach 40-60%. The deeper lying muscles, e.g. postural muscles, benefit greatly from VibroTraining®.

Another major advantage of VibroTraining®: muscles that are not used very frequently can often not be activated consciously. VibroTraining® reactivates these muscles by reflex. The effect: all muscles are stimulated.

The vibrations have a positive impact on your hormone balance and helps to reduce stress. You feel more relaxed, fitter and more alert.

Within 10 minutes you can complete effective training of your entire body. This is possible because VibroTraining® stimulates the whole muscular system at once and not one muscle after the other.
