While Whole Body Vibration may seem like a modern technological innovation, the first implementation of vibration to improve human function and healing dates back many centuries.
In the year 2000 this amazing phenomenon was introduced to Europe, and has revolutionised the health, wellness and aesthetic industries with its far-reaching applications.
As a time-efficient, results-driven workout method, the Power Plate®
machine has quickly won a loyal following of celebrities around the world. Super models like Elle MacPherson, Claudia Schiffer, Heidi Klum, Rachel Weitz, Hilary Swank and Courtney Cox all love using Power Plate machines.
The applications and benefits of Power Plate therapy are many, and using a Power Plate machine regularly can also assist with anti-ageing and rejuvenation with hormone release, increased strength and toning, increased fat loss and improved body composition, and reduction in celullite.
Research has shown that Power Plate training has a positive effect on the endocrine system. With aging, everything about us slows down, including the hormonal system. Power Plate training can affect hormone production, with an increase in hGH, Testosterone, and Serotonin, and a reduction in cortisol.
Every cell in the body has human Growth hormone
Receptors and is involved in many physiological processes. An increase in hGH is associated with improved body composition; fat reduction – especially around the lower abdomen and trunk; lean body mass increase; connective tissue condition; and a younger looking skin with fewer wrinkles.
works with human Growth Hormone to build lean muscle mass which gives us the capacity to raise the metabolism and burn more fat.
Increasing the hormone serotonin
creates feelings of wellbeing and is our natural “happy” hormone. Raising serotonin levels also has an effect on reducing pain and increasing energy levels.
is known as a catabolic hormone, so high levels of cortisol reduce lean muscle. The less lean muscle we have the harder it is to burn fat. Cortisol is linked with stress, and high levels over long periods of time is very aging for the body. Research has shown that regular training on the Power Plate can significantly reduce the negative effects of Cortisol in the body
These endocrine responses from whole body vibration training promote balance in the autonomic nervous system, and beneficially impact growth, recovery and regeneration.
There are many other positive effects of Power Plate training. As we all knowcirculation
is critical for health and wellness. Research shows that vibration training improves circulation through the enhanced activation of alternating muscle contraction and relaxation. The vibration created by the Power Plate causes enhanced capillary action for nutrient delivery right through the body, including to joints, ligaments, cartilage and skin.
Although you rarely hear about exercising your face, there’s a surprising amount of information about facial exercising, or “facial fitness
”. It makes perfect sense, of course, and many testify to the power of exercising their facial muscles to keep their face toned and youthful. Facial muscles will naturally begin to lose elasticity and flexibility with age, due to lack of use, which leads to a droopy appearance. By regularly exercising your various facial muscles, you can ensure they remain firm, which will support your skin and prevent sagging. Facial muscles can also be stimulated by the tonic vibration reflex induced by Power Plate. This action, together with factors like increased growth hormone, causes a strengthening and tautening of the facial muscles, and can result in your skin’s looking vibrant and healthy and your enjoying a radical reduction in your ageing rate.
Women are constantly researching new ways to banish cellulite
. The action of Power Plate increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, thus removing toxins more effectively. The positive benefits it creates on the endocrine system also help to dramatically improve the health and appearance of skin, connective tissues and reduce fat stores. Combine the actions of Power Plate with treatments like body wraps, endermologie and lipolysis treatments, and their results received will be accelerated.
programmes are the top goal category of many salon customers. Power Plate provides the most effective and efficient tool in supporting weight loss and boosting metabolism. We have already learned that Power Plate reduces cortisol, the stress hormone, a known culprit in the storage of abdominal fat and the deterioration of lean muscle. By utilising the strength application of the Power Plate, more muscle fibres are recruited and therefore the fat burning metabolic potential of the body is sparked.
Chances are your salon already has a range of anti-ageing skin care products, with high levels of Vitamin A and other ingredients , that help prevent ageing of the skin, as well as aid restoration from existing photo-ageing damage, to a more youthful appearance. You may also carry a range of supplementation, providing the correct ingredients to promote cell repair and new cell growth.
Power Plate can add to this equation to optimise clients’ success in maintaining a more youthful appearance. We can apply this within the beauty industry through chanelling these effects on the body, and incorporate treatments that rejuvenate the body, target cellulite, invoke relaxation and wellbeing and improve circulation and lymphatic drainage.
