Whole Body Vibration (WBV)

Picture the equivalent of 45 minutes of exercise in just 10 minutes! Whole body vibration is now utilized by Olympic athletes, professional sports teams, and people just like you suffering from neuropathy, back, hip, knee and other pains. Why? Because it creates a vibrating motion that is transferred up through your body and causes your tissues and muscles contract and relax. We have FIVE platforms that are set to vibrate at 3300 times per minute. This causes the muscles to tone and strengthen faster than any other workout.

The benefits of WBV for you are:

  • Provides an increase in circulation primarily in your legs and feet
  • Provides an increase in lymphatic drainage (which could decrease swelling in your legs)
  • Provides an increase in the release of feel-good hormones
  • Provides a lowering of the stress hormone cortisol (the hormone that makes you gain weight)
  • Provides you with better balance
  • Proven to improve bone density

Wobble Chair

You may be familiar with balance balls, but you may not be familiar with the latest technology to help regenerate the disc spaces in your spine. Imagine sitting on chair that not only helps alleviate the pain in your back, but also helps your spinal condition improve. If you have been told that you have degenerative disc disease or arthritis, the wobble chair may become your best friend as it allows healing of the damaged discs and tissues in your lower spine.

The wobble chair also promotes an increase the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord. This fluid brings nutrients, neurotransmitters and hormones that your brain and nerves need to be healthy. This creates a better mood and longer attention span. Imagine if you could see your memory, focus, and cognitive function improve!


Cervical Traction

This device is used to help with neck pain relief. The cervical traction device also helps alleviate pain in your shoulders, arms and hands. It also can help with headaches.
