HOW TO CONNECT WITH OUR GUEST
“If we can deliver warm blood to the muscle that are going to be contracting we can warm up and then instead of hurting ourselves when we exercise, we warm up and then our muscles are prepared for firing and for doing good escersize.” [8:00]
“If you have cortisol it slows the body down, it goofs up the immune system, it screws up everything in the body. The literature is extremely clear that with whole body vibration, cortisol levels decrease and decrease significantly.” [13:05]
“I’ve never had a client where I say, you should never exercise and exercise is bad for you. It doesn't exist. We modify the activity to deal with how someone presents and with vibration, it allows me exponential ways of approaching how to help a client feel better.” [27:50]
