Vitality – Balance

Aging is inevitable, but the rate at which you age is up to you. Ironically as you slow down physically and mentally, the rate of aging and onset of illness, speeds up.  It is imperative to keep all your body’s systems (Respiratory, Lymphatic and Cardiac) moving and functioning at their optimal levels. As we age, one of the worse feelings is the fear of falling – it consumes you and dictates what you do every single day.  It is all about finding and keeping your body in balance.  Through Whole Body Vibration, Rebounding, and Halotherapy we can help slow down the clock, help you move easier and with more confidence, and “Live Longer and Stronger”.

When doing any type of cardio training, it is imperative to know what your maximum heart rate is so as not to exceed it. Once you know that number, there are Cardio “zones” where training is optimal. There are specific programs to increase your endurance gradually, and ultimately strengthen your heart. Having a personal trainer to calculate these numbers takes out the guesswork. Also, if you are on heart or high blood pressure medication the calculations are not so simple, and you need the assistance of a personal trainer to determine your training zones.

In terms of improving balance, it creates an unstable surface, but in a safe environment, which trains you brain and neuromuscular system how to respond.  Other benefits may include the following:
– Increase flexibility and range of motion
– Reduce risk of falling by improving balance and mobility
– Lower Cortisol (Stress Hormone) and raise Serotonin (Create Wellbeing)
– Increase Production of Anti-Aging Hormones (HGH/Testosterone)
– Improve Motor Control and Reduce Tremors in Parkinson’s Clients
– Reduce Pain and Fatigue in Fibromyalgia Sufferers
– Improve Postural Control and Mobility in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Dating back to 1843, doctors and other health practitioners began documenting the health benefits of breathing in air infused with Dead Sea Salts (referred to as “Halotherapy”). Today, sitting in a sauna-like chamber, you can simply relax and breathe in the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits of air saturated with Dead Sea Salts. It is 100% Drug Free, so great for any one of any age. Results may include less congestion, less coughing, more lung capacity, resulting in a healthier you!

rebounding for balance[1]Rebounding is the act of basically bouncing on a mini-trampoline. Rebounding became more prominent in the 1980s when NASA verified it as being an effective form of exercise. The blood in our bodies gets circulated by our heart, which beats automatically. Lymph, on the other hand, does not move unless we move – without movement the toxins build up, accumulate, and create the perfect breeding ground for disease. Rebounding is a low impact form of exercise which moves the lymph to help rid our bodies of toxins. For seniors, rebounding is highly effective in improving balance by strengthening the leg muscles. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries, with 1 in 3 seniors falling each year.
