Health benefits based on research
Extensive research data supports the positive effects of vibration on metabolism and health, as well as potential uses to reduce the effects of stress, improve sleep quality, and promote recovery and overall health. The research evidence is also supported by the thousands of satisfied customer feedback accumulated since 2011.
A little history and a look to the future
Neurosonic has been on the market, available to our customers, since 2011. Accumulated over nearly ten years, feedback from thousands of customers has proven the positive effects of vibration in terms of sleep quality, pain relief, enhanced recovery, and stress relief. In addition to subjective customer experiences, our technology has received strong scientific evidence from a number of studies that are constantly being conducted to improve the quality of our products and improve their effectiveness on health.
Sleep, stress management, and recovery are global interests and megatrends in well-being. The attention they have received has led research to find out the effects of vibration therapy on health and well-being. We believe that vibration therapy will be the next major health promoter. Therefore, we would like to present the studies in the light of why we recommend that you use the Neurosonic method to promote your own health and well-being.
How does Neurosonic work?
Neurosonic relaxation devices produce low-frequency vibrations that have a calming effect on the autonomic nervous system. It directs the body to a meditation-like state, which relieves stress, improves recovery, and restores healthy sleep mechanisms. Different effects in different power and frequency ranges are achieved: for example, relaxing and restorative programs help an athlete or a stressed person recover faster, and activating programs increase alertness and prepare the body for future performance.
Neurosonic as an alleviator of sleep disorders
A study conducted by sleep researcher Markku Partinen, Helsinki Sleep Clinic (2013), examined the effects of Neurosonic low-frequency treatment on sleep quality in patients with primary insomnia, using 16 randomized comparative trials. Sleep actigraphy measurements showed a significant reduction in movement during sleep, which correlated directly with deeper sleep. The study-related surveys also found significant changes in anxiety and anxiety states that can significantly interfere with sleep. 70% of the subjects received help with five treatments, which significantly reduced anxiety, obsessive-compulsive symptoms and anxiety.
Heli Haapaniemi's research (in 2013) focused on the effects of the Neurosonic method in the treatment of stress and sleep disorders. The study was based on Neurosonic chair treatment series, assessment of subjective sensations, and biosignal measurements to measure cardiac electrical activity (EEG, EMG, and ECG). Based on the research data, it can be stated that the method affected the function of the autonomic nervous system by increasing the activity of the parasympathetic, recovery-promoting part of the autonomic nervous system. This was also evident from heart rate variability results, which indicated that subjects were more relaxed after the study period than before.
Neurosonic as a promoter of recovery
A study conducted by Veera Ikonen (2013) examined the acute effects of the Neurosonic low-frequency method on physiological and subjective recovery variables. The study measured the immediate effects of the Neurosonic method after exercise on resting heart rate, heart rate variability, blood lactic acid levels, the feeling of recovery, and the quality of sleep the next night. To summarize the results of the study, a single treatment with Neurosonic appears to have a positive effect on the activation of the nervous system as well as on recovery from exercise.
Neurosonic helps relieve and manage stress
From a physiological point of view, stress means an elevated state of alertness in the body, in which case the sympathetic activity of the involuntary (autonomous) nervous system prevails. As a result of the “fight or flight” reaction caused by a stress reaction, the body's energy intake and physical performance increase, the effects of which are reflected in, for example, an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar and respiratory heart rate. These reactions are transient and appropriate when helping a person cope with short-term stress.
The counterpart of the sympathetic nervous system, which raises the state of alertness, is the parasympathetic nervous system that supports recovery, and the main switch of it is the vagus nerve. It extends from the brainstem to all the important organs of the body, such as the heart, lungs and intestines, thus having a wide-ranging impact on our health. Activation of the vagus nerve helps reduce stress, anxiety, and inflammation by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. Although the vagus nerve is part of the involuntary autonomic nervous system, its function can be activated, among other things, by respiration and vibration. They act on the neurotransmitters in the brain through the vagus nerve, lowers stress-maintaining factors.
Neurosonic affects the immune system and reduces inflammation
There are preliminary studies that whole-body vibration reduces inflammation in the gut and achieves the same types of metabolic benefits as exercise. According to one study, exercise and vibration both increase muscle mass and insulin sensitivity, especially in overweight individuals. Whole-body vibration also affects the immune system and increases the number of cytokines that reduce inflammation. Indeed, there is research evidence that anxiety, among other things, may be caused partly by the wrong gut strain in the gut and that balanced microbial activity in the gut may alleviate negative stress reactions.
According to the study, vibration also promotes glucose tolerance as well as renal function, which results in a decrease in inflammatory factors and a decrease in peripheral neuropathy. Vibration also seems to have an effect on body composition, skeletal density and the amount of fat in the body.
According to studies and customer feedback, all indications suggest that inflammatory conditions in the gut and muscles are reduced by vibration. At the same time, the level of immunity in the body increases, which has positive effects in the prevention and treatment of several diseases, such as MS, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and fibromyalgia.
Neurosonic is not a medical device
Although there a research evidence and subjective customer experience on the preventive and curative effects of vibration therapy, Neurosonic is not a medical device. However, the process is ongoing and new research data and customer experiences are constantly accumulating.
However, we want to emphasize that Neurosonic is not a substitute for medical treatment prescribed by a doctor, nor does it eliminate the real root cause of disorders. However, it can very well serve as a form of support alongside medical treatments, for example to improve sleep quality. Although the topic has not yet been studied for Neurosonic, we also have a lot of information about the metabolic and circulatory revitalizing effect of Neurosonic through customer experience.
