Vibration training is used by some people in the highest of professions, quite literally, Astronauts!
During a Russian space program, doctors found that astronauts suffered from bone loss and fractures at a much younger age than normal. They began to use vibration therapy to help strengthen astronauts’ bone mass and muscles. After a number of years since this technique was first used, NASA still continues to use Vibration training today.
The Cyclo-ssage Therapy System uses cycloidal vibration which stimulates the body to work so much better.
There are 5 vibration settings which work on relaxing muscles, reducing muscle pain and tension, deep relaxation, blood circulation, and stimulating lymph flow and detoxification while promoting the break down of metabolic waste products.
These 5 settings are then combined in specific ways to target the symptoms of a variety of health issues.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Tension and Stiffness
- Back Pain
- Headaches and Migraines
- Neck and Shoulder Tension
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Chronic Fatigue
- Sluggish Lymphatic System
- Fluid Retention
- Sports performance and recovery
- Digestive Issues
- Period Pain
- Respiratory issues
- Stress and Anxiety
- Sleep issues
So vibration therapy has been given the tick from NASA to help aide their Astronauts but how does it actually work?
When the vibrations are transmitted to your body, they cause your muscles to contract and relax. Certain types of vibrations may also cause your body to produce more osteoblasts. These are cells that produce bone.
The direction and intensity of vibrations may determine how well vibration therapy works. Some machines produce only vertical vibrations. Others (including the Cyclo-ssage Therapy System) produce vibrations that go up and down, front and back, and sideways. Practitioners and those frequently using this therapy technique witnessed the up and down vibrations to be the most effective for producing rapid muscle contractions.
Vibration practitioners, and those who use vibration as a form of therapy, claim that the vibrations help to increase bone density and muscle mass, reduce joint and back pain, minimise stress and even boost metabolism.
Like any form of therapy or treatment, you should work with a qualified professional and ease your way into the intensity of the vibrations to ensure you do not do any more damage to what you are hoping to treat.
However, Cyclo-ssage is available for people to purchase for use in their own home so can be used without the requirement of a qualified professional.
