Vibrational Exercise Therapy

Vibration 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. 

Russian researchers therefore started 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 motion.

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 other countries.  

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.  Today NASA fully embraces Vibration Exercise technology with much success which, because of its strengthening effect on bone and muscle tissue, this technology has since been refined to enhance the performance of Olympic athletes.

Two-thirds of our body is made out of water.  The watery fluids within and surrounding all our cells makes it easier for vibrational energies to resonate and 'bio-stimulate' the entire body. 

Vibration 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 intense speed.

Because both bone and muscle are strengthened and joint flexibility is increased, this treatment can assist those suffering from poor bone density, such as osteoporosis.

There are 2 risk factors associated with osteoporosis: The first post-menopausal women.  Hormonal changes can make it difficult to maintain bone density.  The second factor is ageing which applies to all men and women.  Family health history and lifestyle can determine whether you're at risk from developing osteoporosis.

Research Testimonials

“With regards to the effect of a 6-month study of whole body vibrational therapy on hip density, muscle strength, and postural control in postmenopausal women; vibrational therapy improved isometric and dynamic muscle strength, +15% and + 16% respectively.  It also significantly increased Bone Mass Density of the hip.” 

 Laboratory of Motor Control, Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium.



“As to the effects of random vibrational therapy on motor neurone symptoms in Parkinson's disease; tremor and rigidity scores were improved by 25% and 24%, respectively.”   

Institute of Sport Sciences, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University, Frankfurt, Germany
