Introducing affordable, well-built, and fun to use Whole Body Vibration machines for the USA. These WBV machines are produced by T-ZONE Health, Inc, a multi-million dollar family-owned Canadian company. T-ZONE Health is a fitness related design and engineering company producing high quality and innovative health products. These machines are being used everyday by thousands of people, from all walks of life. There are over 33 Vibration Studios (work-out facilities) across Canada alone! Many more are in Australia, the location of the T-ZONE sister company. Consequently, T-ZONE Health has become a leader in Whole Body Vibration Training.
|Personal Note From Tim: I love my T-Zone VT-15 and I know you will, too! Whole Body Vibration utilizes a standing platform that moves in a pleasant see-saw, up/down motion. The constant motion triggers a primal reflex as the body works to maintain homeostasis. Various body mechanisms are stimulated and strengthened over time. Muscles are strengthened and relaxed. Balance and proprioception are enhanced. Many users say chi (energy) movement in the body is particularly increased, especially in the lower abdomen, and that energy movement up the spine is also encouraged. A 10-minute session before any body work will loosen tight muscles, opening up the body for deeper benefits and an enhanced therapeutic experience. It is a great fitness machine.
Important: If you have any medical condition whatsoever, be sure to consult your physician before using whole body vibration.
Who can benefit? Almost everyone! Golfers, baseball players, football players, gymnasts, weight lifters, yoga and martial arts practitioners, runners, moms, dads, and grandparents to name a few. Even people with back injuries, osteoporosis, or stroke patients in rehab could greatly benefit. Whole Body Vibration Training can prevent injuries, but just as importantly, it can help in the rehabilitation process. Many professional sports teams, physical therapists, and chiropractors have found WBV to be an invaluable tool in rehab, strengthening muscles without the usual strain on joints and ligaments. Interestingly, there is an overlap between the mechanism and some of the benefits of WBV and the "balance board" (see below) used in rehabilitation therapy, but WBV offers many significant advantages.

Range of Application and Potential Benefits:
"Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) training was developed by Russian scientist Vladimir Nazarov to prevent astronauts muscles and bones wasting when they were in space... Whole body vibration is implemented through the use of a vibrating platform on which exercises can be performed. The vibrations generated by the plate underneath the platform are transmitted to the person standing, sitting or lying on the machine. The intensity and the direction of these vibrations are essential for their effect. Different vibration platforms have different vibration characteristics. Not all platforms perform in the same manner, and that is why the results of using them are different."
(From Wikipedia, with References: Read More)
There are two types of technology available: the "piston" up and down linear vibrational equipment and the side-alternating, oscillating vibration. The difference is substantial. While the side-alternating technology used in the VT-15 and VT-20 Whole Body Vibration (WBV) machine has surprising and astonishing results for health, exercise and body toning, there are questions raised about the advisability of using equipment based on piston style technology.
Piston vibration and the resulting "G" force may have an undesirable long term impact. Anyone who has used a jack hammer, driven a truck or other heavy operating machinery with the up and down, linear piston movement and vibration knows the back problems that can develop and various physical stresses to other areas precipitating repetitive stress injury syndromes (carpal tunnel). Side-alternating, oscillation vibrates at the correct megahertz from a medical and body toning standpoint using a lift mechanism along with vibration.
According to Sunny Wang, Kinesiology Specialist, "Side-alternating oscillation offers the most potential benefit due to its unique vibrational movement, which is similar to walking. While most vibrational exercisers use an up and down piston-type movement, the T-ZONE VT-15 and VT-20 uses the safer and more beneficial type of oscillation. These machines utilizes a continuously variable movement in two directions: side to side, and up and down. It is this multi-rotational, continuously variable, oscillating movement that stimulates the physiological primal reflex and provides the most benefit from vibrational platform exercise, while simultaneously lessening any joint impact." (Read more of Sunny's article)
How does the T-Zone Whole Body Exerciser do what it does?
When you stand on T-ZONE’s oscillating vibration training platform, vertical vibrations are produced with a side-alternating rocking movement similar to walking or balancing on a balance board. Our body reacts to this natural stimulus with an involuntary reflex muscle contraction. Depending on the speed, muscles will react up to 23 times per second (approximately 11-12 contractions and 11-12 relaxations), and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it "weighs" more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or "load" of gravity in every movement you perform.
The side to side, up and down oscillating system used by the T-ZONE Whole Body Vibration Machine generates a slightly greater "G" force and systematic involuntary muscle contraction. This stimulates receptors in the Achilles tendon called golgi bodies that stimulate nerve receptors which track up to the cerebellum (the part of the brain that is responsible for balance). This pleasant rocking and rolling action causes the brain to tell the muscles of your body to actively contract to maintain its equilibrium, thus creating a therapeutic and muscle toning workout. Curiously, there is a correlation between some effects experienced on the T-Zone Machines and those experienced on a "balance board".
Have you ever heard of a balance board (or a Bosu ball)? It is often used as part of rehabilitative therapy for stroke patients, brain injured patients, and children with ADD, as well as with various sports disciplines to increase balance, focus, concentration, and self-confidence. The balance board is a simple wooden platform with a pivot underneath. By attempting to maintain balance on the board, a whole range of neurological effects are produced over time. These effects can be related to physical, mental, and emotional health, and well-being.
Doing balance board activities (similar to using the T-ZONE VT-15 and VT-20) trains the whole sensory system by working with the proprioceptive (how we sense the position, location, and orientation of our body to our surroundings) and the vestibular (controls the sense of movement and balance) systems. When stimulated, these key threads in the neurological web of our brain are the mechanism which activates our entire brain and opens up our sensory channels for more efficient living and learning. Read more about the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of the balance board.
While there are some overlapping benefits between the balance board and the T-ZONE WBV machine due to the stimulation of the proprioceptive and vestibular systems, the whole body vibration takes it a step further. The higher vibrational training stimulation of the VT-15 and VT-20 trigger a primal reflex so the body has to react many times faster than it does on a balance board, which may, for instance, account for the stimulation of the feel good hormones. The T-ZONE WBV machine's ease of use has an added advantage with patient populations whose balance and fine motor control is compromised to such a degree that a balance board would be out of the question. And those individuals who do not have the time or inclination to practice on a balance board could also greatly benefit from the increased stength, flexibility, and sense of well-being they might get from T-ZONE's Whole Body Vibration.

Whole Body Vibration Testimonials
Note: This is a small sample of stories from actual T-Zone Vibration customers and are based on their individual experience. These stories do not in any way prove the efficacy of vibration machines. We recommend that you consult a qualified medical practitioner for the treatment of any condition, and before embarking on any change of your normal health regimen.
RE: Back Injury
I am 36 years old and injured my back when I was 28. The doctors told me (6 specialists) that I
had the back of an 80 year old woman. I tried everything: 2 months of therapy every day, massage - you name it, I tried it! I had been to a Chiropractor before (the injury) and didn't like it, but my neck had also gotten injured so I decided to try it again. 5 years later I'm still here (at the Chiropractor's), but not as often. I'm basically pain free and can even work out, coach volleyball, and garden thanks to Dr. Vollrath and his wife Colleen.
I want to also mention the whole body vibration machine. I have been using the machine for 4 weeks and I must say that it really works! Not only am I more flexible, I'm stronger. I have not done one single sit up or crunch other than on the machine and I can now get through an ab work out that previously would have taken me a month to work through! On my first try I did the entire work out by just going on the machine 4 - 5 times a week and crunching my ab's for 1 - 2 minutes. I've combined the machine with cardio and weights and the results are amazing! If I don't feel like working out, I will just go on the machine and it helps. I just can't say enough about it. I have gone from being unable to stand straight up and unable to put any weight on my left leg to being able to now walk, run, jump and do pretty much anything I want within reason. Thank you so much!!
RE: Broken Neck
I wanted to let you know that after 10 min. on the machine yesterday, I felt 2 things: (1) I slept for 9 hrs straight without any interruptions. This has not happened since 2003 and I normally don't sleep for more than 2 hrs at a time. (2) My neck pain is gone for the first time since 1999! Is this possible with only one use???? I will continue using it for the rest of the week. Just a bit about my neck: My neck was fractured at C3 and C4 resulting in a lateral shift in the vertebrae. (I feel) pain and stiffness in the neck and upper back numbness/tingling in the arms and hands. Thanks and talk to you in a few days.
When first introduced to the vibration machine, it almost seemed to be "too good to be true". Having a husband that suffers from arthritis in his hips and knees, we've always been open and looking for something to help him get relief. Well...we purchased the Vibration machine and in no time he was feeling less pain, walking taller, and without his noticeable limp. He had been wearing prescribed "support" socks to help with his pains and soreness in the backs and sides of his legs. In less than a month’s time, he now no longer wears the support socks due to increased circulation.
As for me, I feel much more energized and have lost weight with no great effort. The vibration machine, for us, is not too good to be true - it's GOOD and it's TRUE.
RE: Back & Hip Pain
I've been getting very positive results with the vibration machine. After years of chronic back pain (left hip, up spine into neck) I have no pain. As well, my LDL is back to normal and my bone density is increasing. I'm off drugs for high cholesterol and bone density as well as anti-inflammatory and pain killers, massage therapy, and acupuncture treatments for pain.
I feel happier, healthier, and younger. Everyone should experience this machine. I've been using the vibration machine for nearly 4 months now am anxious for my next round of tests to see if the results are better.
RE: Body Building & Hamstring Pull
I am 32 and I've been working-out for 17 years, and in terms of muscle tone and definition, I've never been able to produce results like these. Incorporating the vibration exercise into my workout routine has chiseled my calves and triceps and has dramatically hardened almost every major muscle in my body. You simply can't achieve this kind of high rep activity with traditional workout equipment.
I've also used vibration technology to recover from sports injuries. Last summer, I suffered a moderate hamstring pull while playing soccer. As most of you probably know, this type of injury is notorious for healing slowly and being highly susceptible to reinjury. Using the vibration machine for a few minutes, three times a week, I was able to play soccer again after a little more than a month. The machine's concentrated range of motion and high level of repetition allowed me to thoroughly work the muscle without risk of reinjury.
RE: General Health
Vibe(ing) has made me feel better, given me more energy, and improved my overall well-being! I recommend it for everyone!
RE: Joint Pain & Weight Loss
I have been using vibration exercise for 7 weeks and have seen great benefits. I have had foot pain for 15 years and back pain for 1 year, and using the VT-12 has improved both of these a great deal, with the added benefit of several inches lost! Thank you.
RE: Back Pain
Since I’ve started using the vibration machine, my chronic back pain has become almost nonexistent. It’s been great feeling invigorated after a vibration session! I recommend vibration training to anyone who needs relief from back pain.
RE: General Health & Weight Loss
T-Zone Vibration Technology: After a bit of apprehension, I am amazed with the results I’ve had after only 2 months using the VT-12. My energy level has gone up and I feel invigorated and alert. The machine awakens every muscle in my body. I feel stronger, more flexible, and stimulated. I have lost inches around my midriff, my muscles are more receptive, and my joints are less sore. The benefits I’ve had have been phenomenal! This new technology is a sure hit with me. I sincerely believe in the process and recommend it highly. I look forward to every session.
I would like to thank you for bringing “Vibration Health” to our town. I appreciate all that it has done for me. Before starting on the vibration machine I had a lot of knee problems, leg problems and arthritis. However since I started using the VT-12, 3 months ago, my clothes fit better, I feel more confident, and I’ve had a major boost in energy. I’m looking forward to many more days on the machine! Thanks again.
I heard about vibration technology in October from a friend and have been using it every day since then. I think it’s great! I sleep better, have lost inches, and feel better in general.
After using the T-Zone Vibration Machine for only 5 days, my arthritis pain has already slightly eased. I can also tell that I have lost inches off my body. I love using the machine and am an avid fan! Thanks.
RE: Weightloss & General Health
Before I started using the VT-12, I had tried countless weight loss and health regimes which were derailed because of personal health issues that are impacted by exercise. Over the years, I have had 4 abdominal surgeries and was in a car accident. When I approached the staff with my various issues, they gave me some reading material and encouraged me to try the machine but to keep it on the lower levels and increase it gradually, as tolerated. Vbration technology has made my life a little bit easier and a whole lot healthier.
It is a complete workout with minimal exertion. My abs feel it! My calves feel it! The parts of my body that normally hurt don’t seem to mind it all. I believe that the vbration machine helps with pain management too; I have experienced fewer headaches since using the machine and have been having much less joint pain than in the past. In 3 months I have lost 21.5 inches and 8 lbs! The best part is I know I can find 10 minutes daily for me. I look forward to those 10 minutes!
In the 3 months that I have been using the VT-12 machine, I have lost 33 ¼ inches all over. I am also finding that my lower back does not bother me like it used to. Another big plus is that I’m receiving compliments on my appearance. People are noticing my progress and that makes me feel good about myself. I’m so glad that I’ve chosen to join vibration health. Thanks for getting me on the right track!
I find that VT-12 has helped me a lot! I have lost 14 ¾ inches, my health is improving, and I have better circulation too!
RE: General Health
A Poem for the Vibration Health Team:
“It shakes me to the left, shakes me to the right,
It shakes up my legs with all its might.
I sit on it, I lie on it, and I squat to the ground,
I hope to lose inches that will never be found.
I feel so much better when I finish at Vibe
I just wanna grab Shawn and jive.
I love this machine and the way it makes me feel,
I had a sore hip and I believe it helped it heal.
I would highly recommend this machine to anyone,
Not only to stay healthy, but to have a little fun.
After a long day at work, I take ten minutes of my time
To get on this machine and shake my behind!”
RE: General Health
I have been enjoying the benefits that “Vibration Health” in Summerside offers with their T-Zone Vibration machines. After only one week, I lost over 8 inches! I can feel the difference in how my back and other joints feel. I never thought working out could be so much fun! By simply stepping on the machine for 10 minutes a day, I notice a difference in how my clothes fit, and how I feel physically. I would encourage you to try the VT-12. Your body will thank you!
I enjoy using the T-Zone Vibration Therapy as an adjunct to my exercises that I do for strengthening my knees and my quads. I can do many of the exercises advised by physio on the machine, thereby intensifying the effect, and allowing me to pack more into less time. I noticed the results in a few weeks.
RE: Heart Attack & Bypass Surgery
In March 2008, I had a heart attack which required a bypass. On April 23 2008, I had a quadruple heart bypass with mitral valve replacement. After 18 weeks I started using the vibration machine for 30 seconds per day for 1 week, adding 30 seconds each week until I was up to 10 minutes. My rehab at the hospital has been greatly enhanced by the exercise program that I do. I am able to walk 5 km in 42 minutes at a speed of 1.4 miles per hour, or cycle on stationary bike for 30 minutes (16.5 km) without any discomfort. I am very grateful to T-Zone Health to have introduced this technology to my family. Warmest thanks.

RE: Herniated Disc
I have a herniated disk (L3) in my lower back for which I have received extensive physiotherapy and chiropractic work over the past 7 years. My symptoms include: from not being able to walk to lack of sleep every night due to pain. I use the vibration machine every second day for 10-12 minutes and have not needed any help from my chiropractor or physiotherapist since June of 2008 (seven months). The only change I have made is the use of the vibration machine. It has increased my core strength and I believe that has been the answer to my problems. Everyone should have one!!!!
RE: Lymphatic & Fitness
At first I was skeptical about the vibration technology as I have spent over 20 years working out and being physically active. It sounded too simple and easy. Now that I have owned my vibration machine for over a year, and use it almost every day when I wake up, I can say that it is an incredible addition to anyone’s fitness and health program. By helping my lymph move so effectively, my cleansing throughout this last year has been deeper and left me with the energy to have the busiest year of my career. I enjoy my vibration machine and recommend this vibration technology to anyone looking to add a valuable piece of equipment to their home or office.
RE: Osteoarthritis & Stenosis
I have had osteoarthritis and stenosis since 1983 and could not exercise with weights or cardio because of extreme back pain. The vibration platform has been the only machine I can use without pain. I have seen results in toning and feeling better. I am amazed that I can finally exercise.
RE: Weight Loss
I absolutely love this machine! It has changed my life. Before the vibration machine my normal routine was working all day, taking care of two children, and doing chores. Every evening I would collapse exhausted without a single ounce of energy. I would get up and repeat the same routine the next day. For me to even think of an hour on some sort of exercise machine was not only a joke, it was impossible.
I bought the vibration machine wondering if this is the miracle I need? Well, in two months not only have I lost weight (15 pounds) and many inches (5 on my waist alone), I’ve gained muscle, energy, and strength. I have changed the direction I was headed in and I feel like I am in control once again. The only joke now is how ten effortless little minutes a day has completely changed my life. I can’t wait to see the results from week to week. Thanks to vibration fitness I am well on the way to regaining my health. I am extremely grateful for this miracle machine.
RE: Weight Loss, Joint & Back Pain
I bought the T-Zone Vibration machine hoping it would help with aiding in a diet I was about to undertake. I had pain in my joints and numbness on the right side of my body so I figured I had nothing to lose by trying the T-Zone. Well not only did the T-Zone help with my diet, it accelerated the results. I lost 27 pounds in 4 weeks plus I was able to sleep better at night than I had in a long time. I always tossed and turned because of the numbness and/or pain I experience, but since using the T-Zone it has all disappeared and I feel great.
The T-Zone has helped with the circulation in my system and it is so relaxing and relieves the stress of the day. I use the T-Zone in the morning to get my metabolism going and in the evening to help relax tense muscles from the day. I use to have to go to the chiropractor and massage therapist weekly because of my back, since I use to experience muscle spasms daily, but now I only go once a month if that. The T-Zone has paid for itself alone just with the saved trips for these appointments.
My whole family uses the T-Zone. My spouse has also experienced less back pain and it has helped with my daughter’s constipation problems. The machine is no effort to use at all. We just jump on it while watching TV and it does all the work for you. All you have to do is turn it on.
RE: Torn ACL & Knee Surgery
In March 2007, I damaged the meniscus and tore the ACL on my left knee. Surgery was performed in September to repair the meniscus but not the tear in the ACL. I was told by my Chiropractor that vibration therapy would be a great asset along with my physio. After 3 months, my progress: I have received greater mobility in my knee. I no longer have to use my brace. The results have been great. Thank you T-Zone.
RE: Lower Back
I just want to share my experience with your vibration machine. I could tell after 3 or 4 uses that it was working. I had an old back injury that would flair up from time to time. I had been told the way to fix it was to improve my core strength, particularly the lower back area next to the spine. I could feel the T-Zone machine working that part of my back right away. My back has been noticeably better ever since. As I continued to use the machine, I also noticed my waist line decrease because of my core muscles strengthening. This form of exercise is great for me because I am very busy and don’t have lots of time to go to the gym every day. Thanks for introducing me to the T-Zone!
RE: Lower Back Pain
I just wanted to share with you how I’m feeling about using the T-Zone Vibration Technology. I think it’s a great way to get up and move and shake off the morning blahs. I use a little upbeat music along with my ten minute exercise routine to “shake it off baby”! I’m feeling more energetic and better about myself so it’s working for me. My posture has improved. I have also noticed that my lower back pain was significantly diminished in a few weeks of doing my ten minute routine. There are days now when I don’t notice any back pain. A week ago I was moving heavy furniture and my back was sore at the end of the day, but the soreness didn’t last long. I’m glad I gave this form of exercise a try.
