Please click here to view these contradictions.


Weight Loss

weightloss
  • 10 minutes = 1 hour jogging
  • Induces Lipdysis {breakdown of bodyfat}
  • Boosts circulation to reduce cellulite
  • Tones and tighten and firm specific areas
  • Increases metabolism helping to burn fat and calories more rapidly
  • Increases energy levels
  • Strengthens core muscles
  • Increases lean muscle mass to help burn more calories daily
  • Stimulates Lymphatic Drainage
  • Decreases Cortisol levels (stress hormone) to reduce stress and elevate mood and prevent stress-related abdominal fat due to high levels of Cortisol

For New Mothers

  • Bring hormonal system into balance enabling connective tissue to recover strength and firmness due to softening (pelvic instability) during pregnancy

Anti-Aging & Beauty

Anti-Aging
  • Increases Elastin and Collagen production to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles
  • Thickens and tighten skin
  • Increases blood circulation for a instant facial and radiant appearance
  • Dramatically increases HGH and IGF-1 growth hormones that slows the aging process and helps to reverse its effects
  • Improves circulation which helps hydrate and nourish skin cells and hair follicles, thickens hair
  • Improves skin tone
  • Slows aging by improving blood flow, oxygenation, Lymph Drainage, circulation, and detoxifying the body of environmental toxins which accelerate aging, shorten life span and limits mobility
  • Accelerates the body's natural healing response, increases cellular oxygen uptake, enhances cellular nutrient uptake, stimulates cellular fluid movement, facilitates cellular waste removal. As a result, new cells are more resilient, more vibrant, and function together as a healthier, longer lasting body

Stress Reduction

  • Elevates human growth hormones Serotonin and Neurotrophine levels (the happiness, relaxation hormones) creating better mood and sense of well being
  • Decreases the release of toxic stress hormones such as Cortisol and Epinephrine secretions by 31% (these stress hormones throw the immune system out of balance and destroy brain cells)
  • Enhances circulation and decreases blood pressure helping to counteract the effects of stress on the body and mind

Health & Well-Being

Bloodstream

With vibration therapy, muscles are activated directly without relying on the nervous system. Patients tend to have more energy, feel better, and are more able to cope better with everyday activities.
