Vibrational Exercise Therapy
Exercise Therapy was originally developed as part of the Soviet
Space Programme. Russian scientists discovered that those cosmonauts
who spent extended amounts of time in space, experienced
significant loss in bone density and muscle tissue due to zero gravity.
experimenting with Vibration Exercise technology, and found that
by using this equipment they could not only stop the loss, but
amazingly they could increase bone density and strengthen muscle
tissue, with a dramatic increase in joint flexibility and joint range of
Using Vibration Exercise technology, the Russians were able to
set a record of more than 420 days in outer space in 1994/1995.
American astronauts, training on conventional fitness equipment,
were forced to return after just 120 days due to bone and muscle
degeneration. It wasn’t until after the fall of the Iron
Curtain, that Vibration Exercise technology found its way to
This innovative and ground-breaking technology has been
subjected to extensive research and studies in over 30
Universities worldwide and also within the European Space Agency.

which, because of its strengthening effect on bone and muscle
tissue, this technology
has since been refined to enhance the performance of

Exercise Therapy utilises a scientifically-calibrated machine
that produces vibrations from the feet up distributing
vibrational energy throughout the entire body. These vibrations result
in rapid and intense muscle fibre contractions at 10-50 times
per second. At Natural Body Healing, we offer a 10-minute
session (for most clients) on a low to moderate speed, and also a 20-minute session (for
advanced-level clients with optimum fitness) on a moderately
