We all talk about circulation. We know that without good circulation our feet or hands become numb. We are always cold. When standing on the vibration plate the rhymic contractions of the muscle encourage blood circulation. Every capillary will be enlarged, so blood evenly flows into the smallest capillaries in our body.
This blood circulation improves the delivery and removal of metabolic waste. As waste products are removed more quickly the body recovers more rapidly. Whole body vibration increases the number of functional red blood cells and also increases the presence of white blood cells in the capillaries.
