The Doctors’ Prescription for Healthy Living  first began reporting on the health and fitness benefits of whole body vibration (WBV) therapy several years ago. Since that time, its merits have garnered the attention of some of the country’s very best doctors of integrative medicine, including Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy of the cutting-edge Center for New Medicine in Irvine, California. Gyms, spas and health centers are taking notice as well and investing in WBV machines to offer to their members and patients. Whether you invest in one for your own home or use one at a health facility nearby, WBV therapy may be the key that unlocks the door to a whole new level of health.
WIDE DEMOGRAPHIC RECEIVE HEALTH BENEFITS
Dr. Connealy is a great believer in TurboSonic WBV therapy. "Vibration therapy is used in the medical field for the treatment and prevention of a variety of illnesses, injuries, and adverse health conditions," she says. Dr. Connealy was initially impressed with its useful application to a widespread demographic. "No matter how young or old a patient is and irrespective of his or her level of fitness or health, with minimal effort, anyone can achieve maximum effects," she says. The fact that the TurboSonic uses healing sound (sonic) vibration over non-sonic vibration appealed to her as well because of greater health benefits. Among them, she mentions: aerobic and anaerobic exercise benefits, improved muscle strength and performance, decreased pain and stress reduction, improved balance and coordination, reduction of the appearance of cellulite, improved pelvic floor function, improved flexibility and agility, release of muscle tension, faster training recovery, improved postural control, improved blood circulation, and increased bone density.
HOW WBV WORKS
You may be wondering how this mysterious sound vibration can produce so many positive changes. Dr. Connealy explains it well. The effect of vibration results in what scientific literature calls Tonic Vibration Reflex or TVR. That is a repeated myotatic reflex or stretch reflex. This means that the vibrated muscle has to work very hard, while the subject or player using TurboSonic does nothing other than balance on the platform. The effect per pulsation is like that of the knee jerk reflex. This muscle activity can be measured by use of electromyography. For example, in one repetition maximum effort, the muscles involved are activated 100 percent voluntarily. However with vibration training on TurboSonic, the muscles work at 200 to 300 percent. This is an ideal way to train, she explains.
SUPPORTS CELLULAR HEALTH
TurboSonic WBV therapy can be helpful when dealing with serious illnesses such as osteoporosis or osteopenia, poor blood circulation of legs and feet (e.g. diabetes) and even cancer. Related to cancer and disease in general, Dr. Connealy says, "It supports healthy detoxification, the lymphatic system, revitalization, rejuvenation, and the recovery system. Degenerative disease conditions, accelerated aging and all diminished capacities ultimately can be attributed to insufficient cellular stimulation. As the living cell struggles with poor nutrition, low oxygen levels, environmental toxins and stagnation of lymphatic fluids, disease conditions develop which accelerate aging and shorten the lifespan."
What’s advantageous about TurboSonic WBV therapy is that it does not require a lot of time. Dr. Connealy recommends 10-minute sessions of WBV therapy daily. But she says that patients can receive significant benefits with three 10-minute sessions per week for 4-8 weeks, depending on one’s condition, goals and mode settings. She even uses it herself, “It helps me to boost my energy, works on my blood and lymphatic system, prevents any kind of muscle and bone disease, and releases my stress. With WBV therapy, it makes my health stronger and keeps me happy.”
