Recently at Shift Fitness and Massage we added in a new piece of equipment. It is a vertical vibration plate. Affectionally called “Vibie” by one scoliosis client. Unlike the ones you see on the television and facebook ads that vibrates side to side, this sends the vibration from your feet upwards. The vertical vibration plate can be found in physical therapy offices, chiropractor office or locally at Shift. As one client after her Myoskeletal Alignment Therapy session indicated. “My right foot was not quite laying flat on the platform. After a few minutes, I could feel the muscles relaxing and the felt both feet lay flat”. Vertical vibration plate works on the postural muscles and so much more.

VibePlate – Stop Bone Density Loss
No matter if you are trying to make sure you do not lose any bone density or are trying to re-build your health to allow you to live a vibrant life, VibePlate can help you reach your goals.
Just simply standing or exercising on the VibePlate has helped many achieve:
- Increased Bone Density
- Reduce or Eliminate Drug Intake
- Increase Strength
- Increase Flexibility
- Improve Balance
- Improve Circulation
- Improve Quality of Life
Does VibePlate training actually strengthen bone and muscles?
During normal forms of exercise, your muscles contract one or two times per second. Exercising on a VibePlate® causes your muscles to contract 10 to 60 times a second. Unlike other forms of exercise which work on only about 40% of your muscle fibers, VibePlate training works on up to 90% of your muscle fibers to help you strengthen muscles and develop more muscle tissue. This leads to increased muscle density and increased strength. You’ll enjoy improved balance, coordination and posture, and increased bone density.
This has been an amazing tool to use after a myoskeletal alignment therapy session. Clients coming in for pain relief, posture and scoliosis have been standing or legs on for wheelchair clients. They can do their balancing exercises on them for more effectiveness. This can be used stand alone as well for those doing Shift Your Posture Transformation Programs.
