Vibration therapy has many uses, both in medical use and alternative treatments or home-care. Vibration therapy can be used for stress relief, pain relief and many other uses. In HEADOC™ vibrations assist in the reduction of pain and anxiety levels and improving blood flow.
Vibration therapy is widely spread in many forms of home use and alternative care. Many devices and instruments use vibrations to provide relief and improve blood flow. Vibrations can treat sore muscles and other pains. Vibration therapy can be found in hand held devices, massage sticks, couches and beds.
Vibration therapy is now a well-known alternative for a professional massage, especially with tight budget and time constraints. There are many devices for home massage, most of them simple vibrators.
HEADOC™’s vibration technology
HEADOC™ makes use of the advantages of vibration therapy for anxiety and pain relief and for improving sleep. HEADOC™’s vibration intensity can be easily adjusted to suit the level you feel comfortable with. At any frequency, HEADOC™ vibrations enhances the effects of the other technologies applied by HEADOC™.
HEADOC™’s vibration mode enables using the device as a cream and oil applicator, massaging the skin and helping the cream penetrate the skin and its pores. The cream applicator is a standard part of Headoc™, and can be used for beauty creams, massage oils, and other ointments designed for skin application.
A little bit of science
Vibrations have been known for a long time as a stress reliever, used in ancient techniques of massage and alternative care. Vibration therapy can improve blood flow in the body (White, 2007) and a reduce levels of anxiety, depression and pain. Immune system functions are enhanced and sleep quality during the night improves (Lund, 2000. Poust, 2013. Field T., 2011.)
Researches over the years have shown massage and vibrations to cause lowered levels of catecholamine and stress hormones (cortisol) as well as decrease in adrenaline and noradrenaline.
