Spinal Alignment (Neurological upregulation)
Your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in your body and maintains proper communication between the brain and the body. In addition to controlling and coordinating appropriate responses necessary for adaptation,
it also monitors your ever-changing needs.
By using either hands or instruments, our treatments are gentle enough for newborns to grandparents. We offer specific treatments to make corrections to the nervous system using a protocol which helps us determine the right treatment at the right time in the right place. When you take the time to determine what’s primary, the resulting care is that much more powerful to bring about change.
Nervous System Influence on your Emotional Health
The brain and spinal cord are part of the mind-body system governing all aspects of your life. There is a highly specialized system of communication from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. We now know that the mind and body can be seen and treated as a whole, and that emotions can be accessed through the body as well as the mind. Just as anxiety created in the brain can cause true gastric distress, “butterflies in the stomach”, tension on nervous tissue passing through a misaligned joint can cause emotional tension in the brain as well.
Nervous System Influence on the Digestive System
Although all body function is controlled by the nervous system (the brain), there is a particularly intimate relationship with the digestive tract. The digestive tract is deeply embedded with a very specialized nerve system. It is, in some respects, an independent “second brain” in direct communication and influence of the brain via the vagus nerve. This shows the importance of a properly functioning spine and nerve flow when the body is battling digestive disorders and attempting gut re-balancing. This is also why what you eat is critically important because it affects how your brain functions. Nutritional consulting is an essential component to Chiropractic care.
Nervous System Influence on the Immune & Endocrine Systems
The nervous and immune systems are clearly in communication with each other. It has been shown that the immune system does not work autonomously and can be conditioned; it is under direct influence of the brain and receives instruction via the nerve network. Furthermore, the nerve, immune and endocrine (hormone) systems are functionally integrated into what looks like a psychoimmunoendocrine network.
Frequency Specific Microcurrent
Frequency Specific Microcurrent is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current.
There are hundreds of practitioners in the US, Australia, Ireland, and Canada using FSM to create miraculous changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. Most of the time FSM produces immediate and dramatic changes in tissue that makes it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.
For example, there is one frequency combination that is only useful for shingles and herpes. In the shingles prodrome it eliminates the pain and prevents the blisters from breaking out. In herpes outbreaks, it eliminates the pain and heals the blisters in hours with only a one hour treatment.
This frequency combination is only good for this purpose and is not useful for anything else. We have not found anyone it does not work on or any other condition for which it is useful. The frequency to reduce inflammation reduces inflammation in a blinded animal study more effectively than any drug ever tested in this animal model. No other frequency reduced inflammation at all. The frequency specific effect is remarkable and reproducible.
There are FDA restrictions on what we can say, report or claim as an effect of the use of microcurrent as a device for the treatment of any condition other than a general “treatment of pain” statement.
Microcurrent instruments are all approved under the general class of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators (“TENS”) devices even though microcurrent is 1000 times less current than TENS.
TENS devices can only make claims about general relief of pain. This doesn’t change what we can do, it changes what we can say about what we can do. All references to clinical effects other than simple pain control refer to frequency resonance effects not the effects of microcurrent.
FSM has changed what is possible in pain management. FSM can treat chronic myofascial pain quickly, easily, and comfortably. Nerve pain from nerve traction injuries, disc bulges, herniations, herpes and shingles can be treated successfully by FSM Practitioners.There are protocols for kidney stone pain, disc and facet joint generated pain that give rapid and often lasting relief. The protocol for fibromyalgia associated with neck trauma offers pain relief, unprecendented changes in inflammatory cytokines and hope for the 2 million patients who suffer from this condition.
There are never any promises with medical procedures but Frequency Specific Microcurrent offers hope.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing.
AK has provided practitioners (DC’s, DM’s, DO’s, MD’s, DDS’s,PSc.D’s, acupuncturists) with a useful tool in understanding the holistic connections within the mind-body, and has provided insight into the subtle interconnections between organ/gland function to muscles. In short, the body organizes itself in circuits (acupuncture meridians), and when an organ (which is a master switch on the circuit) is impaired in function, there will be a manifestation in muscle imbalance (weakness) within the body.
For example, say the kidneys are being stressed due to toxic accumulation of a heavy metal that will manifest as a weakness within a kidney related muscle (psoas). (This may occur well before conventional lab tests may indicate this problem.) What may be felt symptomatically is back pain, due to the relationship between the kidney’s and the lumbar spine supporting psoas muscles.
It’s this organ muscle testing relationship that is at the root of many apparently structural complaints that respond poorly to straight physical therapy approaches. Have you ever heard of someone seeing a chiropractor or PT once or twice a week for over a year, or longer, and not seem to resolve their low back pain problem? There’s a good chance the problem didn’t have a structural origin in such cases.
The Triad of Health
A model for ideal health is seen by viewing a perfectly balanced triangle. When someone is healthy, they have a perfect balance between mental/emotional, biochemical/nutritional, and structural aspects of their mind-body.
If one side of a triangle becomes out of balance, so do the other sides. Likewise, a structural imbalance in the neck can alter neurological communication to an organ, like the stomach, which may lead to improper acid production in the organ, and a resulting overgrowth of harmful microorganisms within the small and large intestines. A more common reaction of mental affecting chemical and structural, would be receiving news of an unexpected death. The shock of such news can make one sick to their stomach (mental affecting chemical), and such mental tension can translate into tight muscles around the neck, causing a “stiff neck”. The reality is that these interconnections between the mental, structural, chemical aspects of the mind-body occur well before they become obviously symptomatic.
Medical doctors are trained at treating disease, but there is much dysfunction that occurs before the body has reached a diseased state. This explains why someone can feel poorly and have a thorough examination by a medical doctor, only to be told nothing is wrong. In reality, something is clearly wrong with the patient, but the diagnostic tools used by the medical doctor may not be sensitive enough to pick up dysfunction before it reaches a disease state. Ideally, treatment begins to prevent dysfunction degrading to a disease state. If the problem is heavy metals affecting the kidneys (example above), which in turn weakens the psoas, which in turn causes instability in the spine, which in turn causes pinching of a nerve in the lumbar spine, then a proper approach would be to identify the source of the metal poisoning, and secondly to realign the structure to eliminate the pain. Combining both in this scenario will provide the best path towards wellness for the patient. A good AK assessment can help properly identify this causal chain of events, and also specifically identify remedies most appropriate for that individual to help eliminate the toxin and repair the tissue.
Nutritional muscle testing
Nutritional Muscle Testing is an advanced system of analyzing the body to determine an underlying cause of poor health, poor nutrition and toxins built up in the body.
We use a system of muscle testing that can reveal an amazing amount of information about your body, painlessly and easily. This system of healing can let the practitioner determine the cause of underlying imbalances that cause many of our symptoms. Then we can isolate and verify the precise whole food supplements and quantities your body needs to help bring the body back into balance. The body has the full potential to fully repair itself when given the right nutrients.
What is Muscle Testing?
Muscle testing can be defined as a neurological test for evaluating the body’s electromagnetic potentials. We are working with the nervous system which is an electrical system. It has positive and negative current flows. The flow of current creates a measurable electromagnetic field around the body and can be short circuited just like an electrical system in our homes.
We first test your muscles for basic functional strength. If that muscle is “strong” when tested “in the clear” (while not being compared to another factor) that muscle can be used as an indicator for optimal or sub-optimal balance of other areas of your body. For example, your knee, elbow, liver, stomach, etc. can be checked with a related muscle test. If the indicator muscle and the area in question are tested simultaneously, the indicator muscle answers the question: Is this area balanced?
Each time a muscle is being tested, it equates to asking the body a question.
Each muscle response (strong or weak) reveals the answer to that question.
Muscle testing may be used to evaluate energetic imbalances or dysfunctions before a serious problem evolves.
Muscle testing may be used to learn the body’s compatibility with specific foods, cosmetics, nutrients, fabrics, etc.
Cold laser therapy
When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. The energy from the laser stimulates the mitochondria in the cells to produce more ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), which is the form of energy that all cells use. Once the cells have this energy, they can then do any processes that they need to, which include proper healing. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation, and tissue healing.
The Erchonia cold laser device has gained FDA approval and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France pro cycling team.
Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:
chronic or acute pain
minor nerve damage
carpal tunnel syndrome
heavy metal detoxification

Ion cleanse detox Footbath and Energy Balancer
The EBi is a form of cellular detoxification that cleanses the body of harmful free radicals by means of a foot bath. It was designed and developed to restore the body’s balance and energy levels, while aiding in its natural detoxification process. Proven in clinical trials to balance & restore the body’s Ph and electromagnetic energy.
How does it work?
The EBi uses direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bio-energetic water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during treatment which enhances the cells, causing them to work and detoxify at a higher rate.
You may benefit from the EB Pro if you suffer from:
multiple chemical sensitivities
Health Benefits of Foot Detoxification

Body work therapy / Myofascial release
The Percussor is a device that has a vibrating head, that pulses in and out at a variable rate. The percussor’s action allows the practitioner to work with the fascia of the body at a very deep, penetrating level that has long-lasting dimensions. The smooth force of this percussive action allows one to free both superficial connective tissue and the deep fascia.
When the head of the percussor is applied to the body, those vibrations affect the soft tissues and joints underlying it. This device is very effective at reducing muscular tension, but more importantly, it helps restore full range of motion to the fascia.
Fascia is a type of soft tissue that lines everything inside the body, and it is what allows for motion of the muscles, organs, blood vessels, and more. Without fascia, nothing in the body would be able to move past the other internal parts. Over time, the fascia can become restricted by an accumulation of scar tissue. This scar tissue has various causes: from injuries to surgeries, or even repetative fine motions. This restriction is refered to as a myofascial adhesion (the prefix “myo” means muscle, so myofascia is fascia surrounding the muslces). With the application of the percussor, these adhesions are broken up, freeing up the fascia to move properly. The extent of this release can be much more far reaching than one would expect, because if one area is restricted, the rest of the soft tissue in the area will have to compensate for its lack of motion.
Rapid release pro 2
Rapid Release Technology has also effectively relieved chronic pain of patients who have had no previous success with other holistic treatments.
oAfter muscle injury or overuse, scar tissue forms in the body. Constructed from the same tissue as skin and collagen, scar tissue has no blood vessels, and therefore receives no circulation. This causes the tissue to become brittle and constrictive, sequestering nerves, limiting flexibility, reducing range of motion, and causing pain. When activated by vibration waves at an optimal frequency of 170 hertz, the scar tissue begins to break up. This vibration is called Scar Tissue Therapy, and is a safe, painless, and effective method of treatment for several musculoskeletal conditions including:
Limited Range of Motion
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Neuromas (pinched nerves)
Contractures (shortening of muscles or joints)
Adhesions (scar tissue)
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (lock jaw)
Rapid Release Technology uses the power of vibration to break up painful these adhesions within the body to release muscles and nerves, allowing the body to return to an optimal level of health.
Scar Tissue Therapy provides patients with a quick, painless, and lasting treatment option which is effective and free from side effects. Most patients enjoy immediate and lasting relief from symptoms after a Scar Tissue Therapy session. The duration and number of treatments necessary, as well as the level of relief experienced, varies from patient to patient, depending on the specific medical condition and its severity. All patients, however, do experience some level of relief thanks to Rapid Release Technology.
For the Boomstick’s bigger brother, The Pain Pill, or Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a myofascial release (massage) methodology developed by one of the largest and strongest men in the world – Donnie Thompson. Besides being a famous powerlifter and the first human to lift 3,000 pounds total in the squat, bench press, and deadlift, Donnie is also a world-renowned rehab specialist sought-after by countless athletes in different sports and disciplines. Why? Because he came up with a method that allows for the traditional effects of a time-intensive, hands-on deep-tissue massage in a drastically shorter period of time.
What if you could get the same effects of a 60 minute deep-tissue massage in only 5 minutes? This sounds like a gimmicky tag-line that’s too good to be true, right?
So how does it work? Quite simple actually, it’s a weighted device (19.5lbs) which allows for pressure to be placed on a specific area via the contoured ends and modulated by either pushing against the implement or resisting it. Additionally the knurled middle part of the implement can also be used to both put pressure against the skin and twisted to provide a shearing effect to the tissue and fascia.
Thousands of our Boomsticks have been purchased by athletes around the world – enabling them to spend less time on body maintenance and more time training or competing. We’ve also seen many massage practitioners implement this tool and technique as a way of increasing both the effectiveness of their work and the amount of work they can do at a given time.
The best part? You don’t have to be an athlete, coach, or massage therapist to use this tool. It’s friendly enough to be used by anyone, either on themselves as the subject or on another person. We provide video tutorials displaying the use of the Boomstick as well as other resources for proper use of the tool and method.
Alright then, maybe you’re sold on it. But isn’t it just a shiny and smooth piece of steel? Why does it cost as much as it does? Unfortunately the cost of raw steel and having it professionally milled is quite steep, if you don’t believe us feel free to go to a metal fabricator and ask how much a Boomstick would cost as a one-off piece? Let’s just say it’s going to cost quite a bit more than our price. Besides this, you are not just paying for the tool itself, but the knowledge that comes along with the IASTM method as well as content that we are continuously producing and releasing for our audience and customers.
Near infrared light therapy
Infrared saunas come in several varieties, with the main difference among them being the wavelengths they produce, which in turn affect the depth of tissue they can penetrate. They all provide detox and fat burning benefits:
Near infrared saunas: Near infrared (NIR) penetrates deepest into the body. It’s a bit of a combination of heat therapy and light therapy. NIR is great for detox, boosting the immune system, and wound healing.
Far infrared saunas: FIR saunas using heating elements to emit their (invisible) light and do not penetrate as deeply as NIR. They provide detox and relaxation benefits, and have been shown to aid in lowering blood pressure.
Full spectrum: Emit near, mid and far wavelengths independently, and each can be adjusted independently for desired benefits.
NEAR Infrared light saunas use incandescent infrared heat lamps for heating. They emit mainly near infrared,some middle infrared and perhaps a tiny amount of far infrared energy. This type of sauna also provides warming and stimulating color therapy. The lights emit a small amount of red, orange and yellow visible light. These particular frequencies draw energy downward in the body and can assist the digestive and eliminative organs to some degree.NEAR-sauna-2
While traditional saunas require high temperatures for copious sweating, infrared penetrates the skin and heats from the inside as well as on the skin. This means the air temperature in the sauna can remain cooler, yet one sweats plenty at this lower, more comfortable temperature. The infrared lamp sauna penetrates deepest due to the fact that the heat source is all concentrated in a small area, and not due to the frequencies of the energy used. The rays may penetrate up to three inches or so, so the air temperature can stay coolest of all the types of saunas with the same effectiveness. While some people like the intense heat of the traditional sauna, many find it difficult to tolerate, especially when feeling ill. Near infrared is an antioxidant nutrient, activates the cells, supports metabolic processes and decouples toxins from water molecules. Near infrared is helpful for wound healing and cellular regeneration as well. Near infrared frequencies can also act as amplifiers of other frequencies that are in the vicinity of the heat lamps.
THE BENEFITS OF NEAR INFRARED LAMP SAUNA THERAPY:
BOOSTS METABOLISM –The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells) when NIR (near infrared rays) is introduced.
REDUCES BODY FAT – A group of 20 women riding stationary bicycles 3 times per week for 4 weeks exposed to NIR lost an average of 8 cm’s or 444% more as compared to 20 women doing the same exercise without NIR.
REDUCED VISIBLE CELLULITE – Cellulite is fat mixed with toxins that are trapped, in part due to an underactive circulatory system. Cellulite is visible, in part, due to weakened connective tissue. NIR helps rebuild connective tissue and has been shown to reduce cellulite.
INCREASED ENERGY – NIR activates the color sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome systems) to depths of 23 centimeters, stimulating the energy processes in cells.
DETOXIFY THE BODY – Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic hydrocarbons. Heating the body powerfully shunts blood toward the skin to dissipate heat. This decongests the internal organs and greatly stimulates circulation. Sinuses, joints and many other tissues benefit greatly.
LESSENS JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN & INCREASES FLEXIBILITY – Penetrating heat from NIR has long been proven to reduce pain and increase circulation to areas of discomfort. NIR has also been shown to significantly increase the range of flexibility.
Turnover of dead and damaged cells
Enhanced blood flow
Reduced wrinkles, scars, sun damage, stretch marks, age spots, fine lines
Smoothing of skin, reduced pore size and pits
Increased collagen, ellastin and essential skin protein production
Skin rejuvenation – Sauna use slowly restores elimination through the skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and a major eliminative channel. In most people, it is inactive, congested and toxic. Sun exposure, use of synthetic clothing, bathing in chlorinated water and exposure to hundreds of chemicals damage the skin. Excessive sympathetic nervous system activity and emotions such as fear, anger and guilt cause blood to be withdrawn from the skin, contributing to inactivity of the skin.
ENHANCED SWEATING – Sweating in a sauna is a by-product of applying heat to the body. The sweating process gently and safely helps eliminate all heavy metals and toxic chemicals. Medical studies demonstrate that most toxins can be eliminated through the skin, relieving the burden on the kidneys and liver. Sweating increases dramatically in most people after several months of daily sauna use.
Sweating during exercise is not nearly as effective for detoxification because exercise activates the sympathetic nervous system. Sympathetic nervous activity inhibits toxin elimination.
EXERCISE BENEFITS – Saunas provide many of the benefits of exercise with much less expenditure of energy. These include enhanced circulation and oxidation of the tissues. Repeated sauna use can lower elevated blood pressure and improve the elasticity of the arteries. Saunas are most helpful for cardiovascular rehabilitation, arthritis, allergies, skin conditions and chemical sensitivity. WORKOUT IN LESS TIME – Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the microcirculatory system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a higher level of exertion without increasing blood pressure.
IMPROVED CIRCULATION TO THE MUSCLES – NIR causes the release of nitric oxide. This stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system, bringing more blood to the muscles.
BETTER ENDURANCE – Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42.2% when exposing muscle to NIR.
INCREASED STRENGTH – Growth hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature and not by exercise itself. Growth hormone increases muscle mass, calcium retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat).
FEVER THERAPY (HYPERTHERMIA) FOR INFECTIONS – Raising body temperature powerfully assists the body to kill bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. Many people have a low body temperature and, for this reason, cannot get rid of chronic infections. Common sites of infections are the sinuses, ears, eyes, bladder, throat and intestines.
TUMORS, RADIATION POISONING AND MUTATED CELLS – Hyperthermia also helps kill other types of abnormal cells. Tumors, for example, tolerate heat poorly. Raising body temperature hastens their death. Though not a conventional method, hyperthermia is a well-researched therapy for cancer. Heat also disables or kills cells mutated by radiation or damaged by other toxins.
Inhibiting the sympathetic nervous system. This is tremendous benefit not offered by many therapies of any kind. It enables the body to relax, heal and regenerate itself much faster, causing recovery from many types of ailments.
Oxygenating and hydrating the cells and organs, and improving circulation.Enhanced DNA synthesis is muscle cells and fibroblasts
FASTER RECOVERY TIME – Certain tissue regenerating genes including integrins, laminin, gap junction proteins and kinesin proteins have shown a two- to five-fold increase upon exposure to NIR.

What is cupping?
Cupping is an alternative Chinese medicine which involves placing suction cups made from bamboo, silicone, or glass on the body. It is a form of massage often used alongside acupuncture therapy, although it can be done on its own. Although cupping appears to be a relatively new technique it originated in ancient China and has actually been around for thousands of years!
Though primarily used for pain relief and muscle relaxation, research is now investigating the effects of cupping on conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis. The British Cupping Society claims that cupping can be used to help a variety of conditions including anxiety, depression, skin problems, bronchial congestion (caused by asthma and allergies) as well as fertility disorders. However, further research is needed to back this up.
Professional athletes such as Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps and Andy Murray advocate the technique, believing it to be an essential part of sports recovery by helping to relieve stiffness and injury.
Fixed cupping is where the cups remain in place throughout the treatment, and are normally left in place from anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes.
Moving cupping (also known as gliding cupping) is where the cups are moved during the treatment to massage the muscles. To do this the practitioner will use oil on the skin to allow the cups to move easily without uncomfortable friction.
Dry cupping (or air cupping) uses a specially designed pump which is attached to the skin
Wet cupping is the most similar to acupuncture. After the cup is removed, a small incision is made to the skin, and the cup is then reapplied to withdraw a small amount of blood. Special antibiotic cream is then applied to prevent infection. It is thought that this technique helps to remove toxins from the body and promotes natural healing.
How does it work?
Cupping is believed to mobilise blood flow to the skin creating a mild immune response and increasing anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. It draws stagnant blood to the surface and improves blood circulation to the tissues. It stretches tight muscles and fascia making it a beneficial treatment for athletes.
Benefits of cupping
Cupping, particularly moving cupping, has similar effects to a massage and is therefore beneficial in relieving muscular pain. Although further research investigating the effects of cupping on fibromyalgia needs to be done, one investigation found that cupping therapy was more effective at reducing pain intensity than regular care.
Releases muscle tension
Cupping softens muscle tissue and helps to relieve muscle knots which results in looser feeling, more flexible muscles. Cupping usually targets muscle groups that are prone to tightness such as the hamstrings, the adductors and the back and shoulder muscles.
Improves digestion/relieves digestive disorders
Cupping is thought to improve digestion through relaxing the whole body. Stress, anxiety, and muscle tension can lead to congestion and stagnation in the digestive system. Cupping is thought to release this stagnation, however more research is needed to back these beliefs
vibration plate therapy is a therapy that uses a vibrating machine, often a vibration platform, to create a repetitive or vertical motion around a central point. For most people, vibration machines produce a minuscule movement as you perform static poses like stretching or dynamic exercises.
Vibrations generated by the machine are transferred to you, and your body naturally reacts in order to keep you stable, working out muscles and joints in an automatic fashion. It is always recommended that you use a proper machine from a well-known brand because the success of whole-body vibration exercise depends on the direction and intensity of the vibrations.
Adding vibration to your workout or therapy provides big benefits, because our muscle fibers and motor nerves respond more to vibrations than the deliberate muscle contractions that occur as you work out. Vibration platform machines allow people to experience both types of muscle exercises at once, helping to strengthen muscles and improve cardiovascular health.
Localized vibration can stimulate improvements in selected, small muscle groups. Generally, verticals vibrations are thought to be the most effective for generating the muscle contractions most beneficial to your health.
There are many different benefits of vibration therapy, and we’ll review just a few. Like any therapy, it is always a good idea to discuss it as a treatment with a doctor. If you want to include a vibration therapy machine in your current workout, we recommend a vibration platform because it adds stability and will help prevent any movement concerns. Be sure to pick the VibePlate platform that includes the safety features you’ll need to be safe as you get fit.
General Health Benefits
Using a whole-body vibration machine as part of a comprehensive therapy regimen has been tied to a broad set of health benefits, backed by both research and stories from VibePlate customers.
Studies have even found that whole-body vibration exercises can increase bone density and promote neuromuscular adaptation — essentially the strengthening of muscle due to exercise — in some groups and situations.
Using a vibration therapy machine has been linked to benefits in some of the most important health aspects of our lives. It’s also used by professional athletes, physical therapists, trainers and rehabilitation centers and in military training. NASA is even testing vibration therapy as a way to help astronauts maintain bone density while they’re in space.
Just a few of the benefits researchers and vibration plate users have reported include:
Losing weight and keeping off small amounts
Decreasing your stress
Increasing flexibility and better balance
Developing stronger bones
Having healthier-looking skin
Feeling joint and back pain relief
Experiencing relief from disease pain and motor function impairments
You can even expect a few added benefits that are hard for science to measure. Many of our clients report feeling a warm, tingling sensation in their skin as they use a vibrating plate. This is due to vasodilation of the blood vessels, and it’s very pleasant. Recovery from workout and strains is a more positive experience, which can help you maintain a better attitude about exercise — helping it become a long before it becomes a problem.
