Vibration Plates for Massage

Every week we are asked if vibration plates are suitable for massage, rather than vigorous exercise and the simple answer is “Yes”. Vibration plates are effective whether you use them as your sole piece of fitness equipment, to simply warm up or cool down, or to relieve your body of aches and strains and this is why they are now becoming a familiar (and popular) sight in gyms, health clubs and beauty salons throughout the UK.

Massage on a vibration plate can be achieved by standing, sitting or even lying on the plate area. The vibrations can increase circulation considerably and you may feel a tingling sensation in your skin both during and after your routine. As your muscles rapidly contract and expand lymphatic drainage is encouraged and your body finds it easier to flush away toxins. As toxins are flushed away your body produces a greater amount of collagens which help to improve skin softness.

Typical massage positions on a vibration plate include:

Calf massage:

Lie with your back flat on the FLOOR. Rest your calves on the vibration plate. Hold this position or 1-2 minutes.

Quad massage:

Lie facing the floor with your thighs resting on the plate. Your body should be supported with your elbows flat on the FLOOR. Hold this position for 1-2 minutes.

Back massage:

Sit on the plate with your legs bent, knees apart. Bend forward so your ears are in line with your knees. Hold this position for 1-2 minutes.

Vibration plates are a true revelation in the world of health and fitness and really can provide you with a whole body workout and massage. When you consider that buying a vibration plate for use at home is now possible thanks to their lower price tags then what have you got to lose?
