Exercise guide for vibration plate
People have been realizing the gains vibration plates have to offer for decades taking advantage of this tech for both exercise and therapeutic purposes. A vibration plate is an environment, one that has the potential to increase benefits of traditional exercise positions while reducing the amount of time and effort for the user. As you stand, squat or massage body parts on the plate, micromovements generated by the plate stimulate a variety of positive effects. The low impact nature of these devices appeal to those that may struggle with traditional activities. Lifepro has a variety of vibration plates available, and our members take advantage of our many tutorial videos for guidance on how to use a machine to accomplish their health and fitness goals.
One of the more commonly discussed benefits is how effective vibration therapy for the lymphatic system can be. Whether you are dealing with a medical concern or just looking to maintain your current health, using a vibration plate even passively for a few minutes a day will easily stimulate your lymphatic system and easily get lymph fluid moving. If you have other goals and are performing more of a fitness routine, you gain lymphatic movement whenever you are using the machine - if you are moving so is lymph fluid so you don’t need to do separate positions. Using a vibration plate regularly is key to results.
The Role of the Lymphatic SystemOur lymphatic system involves of a complex network of vessels, tissues, and organs, nodes, and ducts - it is a subsystem of our circulatory system. It is responsible for 3 key functions, fluid balance, absorption and in defending our body through our immune system.
This system is essential for fluid balance within the body, lymphatic movement removes fluids out of blood vessels and maintains the fluid levels in our body tissues by collecting excess fluid and particulate matter. Approximately 10% of this fluid does not return to the bloodstream, it becomes part of the interstitial fluid that surrounds the tissue cells.
Our lymphatic system facilitates the absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients in our stomach, carrying and distributing these substances to the blood stream. Staying Hydrated is important to help keep this function optimal.
As part of our immune system, it removes cellular waste and helps us detoxify. Our Lymphatic system creates and releases lymphocytes (white blood cells) and other immune cells that monitor and then wipes out the foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi that get into our body. It defends our body against foreign invaders. It is responsible for our body’s general and optimal functioning immune responses.
What Does Lymphatic Vibration Therapy Do?
Unlike our blood that is pumped by our heart through a system of blood vessels, called the circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no pump and is best stimulated by moving your body, by being active. For some users, traditional exercises may present a challenge where dealing with injury or other medical issues. Vibration therapy is being embraced by home and professional users as it offers not only low impact movement, but reduced durations makes it an ideal tool to stimulate both lymphatic movement and detoxification.
Therapists and care providers can use a vibration plate before and after other treatments to boost lymph and expedite recovery to achieve more optimal outcomes for their patients – easy for staff to mage stress and tension too!
