Oscillation Therapy

Oscillation Therapy

How does vibration therapy work?

There are two main types of vibration therapy: whole-body and localized.

    • During whole-body vibration therapy, your therapist will ask you to stand, sit, or lay on a machine supported by a vibrating platform.
    • During localized vibration therapy, your therapist will place a hand-held vibrating device on individual locations, ie- shoulders, sides, abdomen, lower back.

When the vibrations are transmitted to your body, they cause your muscles to contract and relax— stimulating your lymphatic system, and to aide in the healing process.

Benefits of Oscillation Therapy

Benefits of whole-body and localized vibration therapy have a range of health benefits that can help with:

  • improve muscle mass
  • improve circulation
  • reduce joint pain
  • reduce back pain
  • alleviate stress
  • boost metabolism
  • boost immune system and healing

Where did it come from?

In 1867, Russian physician and inventor Gustav Zander developed an apparatus that used weights and pulleys to create a sense of vibration. Its purpose was therapeutic. In 1895, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg implemented vibration therapy in his health practice. Using a vibrating chair he developed himself, he discovered it could help improve circulation, alleviate metabolic constipation, and natural detoxing.

Every session starts out with tectonic systemic oscillation.

Why?

Starting each session by stimulating the lymphatic system allows the body to spend the session collecting free floating toxins, fat cells, and free radicals. Circulation increases aiding in the homeostasis process. This is for postOp and nonsurgical.
