What is Vibration Technology?
Vibration technology may appear to be a new therapy but it was actually developed by Russian scientists to help overcome degeneration of muscle mass of cosmonauts who had spent long periods of time in zero gravity.
Vitality 4 Life's founder, Roger Akins was first introduced to vibration exercise therapy 25 years ago by Dr Ian Reinbott. Dr Reinbott, a leading Australian chiropractor, imported a set of early machines from Russia and used them with great success in his clinics in Australia.
These early vibration machines cost over $80 000 and could only be afforded by clinics. What Roger Akins witnessed both in his personal life and from speaking with customers is that once someone had reached the age of 35 they make an error (in his opinion) of returning to conventional weight lifting equipment / gym equipment in an attempt to retain their vitality.
However by the age of 35, most people have experienced some type of injury or dysfunction. We have all seen the middle aged jogger trundling down the street in the early morning in an attempt to get fit. Next time observe them closely. Often their gait is labored which is caused by the stress of having a body which is out of alignment.
By returning to the gym, they proceed to strengthen this dysfunction. On the other hand, with whole body vibration therapy they proceed to return the body to skeletal alignment.
