Whole body vibration therapy involves sitting, standing, or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform. As the machine vibrates, energy is transmitted to your body, forcing your muscles to contract and relax several times each second. In turn, you may feel like you are exerting yourself, similar to a moderate workout.
Just 15 minutes of whole-body vibration three times a week can aid in weight loss/fat burning, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness, and more.
Research shows that when performed correctly under medical supervision, whole-body vibration can reduce back pain, improve strength and balance (especially in older adults), and reduce bone loss.
