Vibra Therapy: Innovative, Noninvasive, Effective Treatment for Better Health

Even if you’re generally healthy, maintaining your wellness is a full-time job. Factor in a few less-than-ideal conditions and, suddenly, staying healthy becomes downright difficult. 

That’s why Dr. Elmer R. Symonett at Symonett Weight Loss Center in Colton, California, gives his patients the advantage of vibra therapy, a revolutionary approach to health and wellness. By engaging your whole body in life-giving vibrations, vibra therapy addresses several main factors that affect your health.

What’s vibra therapy?

Vibra therapy, also known as whole body vibration, is a type of passive exercise that involves a platform you can stand on, although you may sit or lie on it as well. When activated, the platform vibrates, and so does your body. 

The vibrations cause your heart rate to go up and trick your body into feeling like it’s falling, which triggers your muscles to react by contracting repeatedly while you’re on the machine. The cardiovascular and muscular responses lead to several health benefits.

Weight loss

Fat loss depends on your body’s ability to burn energy. Because vibra therapy causes your muscles to contract and relax rapidly, it offers some of the same effects as a high-intensity workout. 

Of course, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet and give your vibra therapy the best chance of burning your fat stores. As you build lean muscle mass, those muscles continue to burn more calories throughout the day.

Stress reduction

One of the hormones your body produces is called cortisol, and it performs several functions. It’s best known for flooding your system when you’re stressed and for triggering your fight-or-flight response when you’re in danger. But it’s also responsible for managing how your body uses fats, sugars, and carbohydrates. It even regulates your blood pressure, blood sugar, inflammation, and sleep cycles. When you have too much cortisol over long periods of time, it can lead to weight gain and a condition called Cushing’s disease.

Vibra therapy reduces your cortisol levels and helps your body’s metabolism and regulatory functions get back to normal.

Muscle tone

While vibra therapy isn’t intended to replace traditional exercise, it’s a great alternative for those who can’t participate in regular activities, including the injured and the elderly.

The rapid muscle contractions experienced over a period of time (typically about 20 minutes per session) produce the same effect as weightlifting and can contribute to strength building and lean muscle mass, both of which help with weight loss and overall health.

Vibra therapy may also help people with injuries like sprained ankles by strengthening the supporting muscles and reducing recovery time. 

Circulation

A healthy heart depends on a healthy vascular system — all the veins and arteries that carry blood to and away from your heart. If your blood flow is sluggish or blocked, the consequences can be devastating.

Vibra therapy increases your circulation, which amps up the oxygen level in your blood and optimizes your heart’s efficiency. Better circulation also boosts your lymphatic system, which is responsible for flushing out toxins and other waste materials. 

Bone density

Your bones stay strong and healthy by absorbing the nutrients you eat and by the pressure that’s exerted on them when you exercise. Strength training and weightlifting can help promote healthy bones, and whole body vibration can offer the same benefits, such as:

This means that vibra therapy may be able to ward off osteoporosis and bone fractures.
