ALIGN now offers modalities for health and vitality!
Whole Body Vibration Platform
The concept of Whole Body Vibration was developed for the Russian Cosmonauts in an effort to combat muscle atrophy, bone density loss, and blood clotting during extended periods of exposure to zero gravity. Decades of research indicate that this innovative machine produces effective results.
The motion of the vibration platform causes the brain to tell the muscles to actively contract to maintain equilibrium. Scientists first discovered the positive effects that vibration technology had on strengthening muscles, increasing flexibility, and improving bone density, further research indicates that vibration therapy may provide many other benefits in a variety of areas.

The Vitalizer Chi Machine
The Chi Machine was invented in the late 1980s by Japanese engineer, Keiichi Ohashi. It was designed for passive aerobic exercise, which involves applying constant movement and pressure to parts of the body through an outside force. During this form of low impact exercise, oxygen is metabolized to produce energy which is dispersed to all parts of the body.
For a treatment, you lie down on your back with the ankles resting in the cradle of the machine. The motion is designed to sway your legs back and forth creating a fish-like motion. The fish like movement improves blood flow and lymphatic function for the health and vitality of the whole body.
