Health benefits based on research evidence
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 overall recovery and health. The research evidence is also supported by thousands of positive feedback comments accumulated since 2011.
Some of our history and our vision of the future
Neurosonic has been on the market, available to our customers, since 2011. Feedback accumulated over nearly a decade, 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 enjoyed strong scientific evidence from several studies that are constantly being conducted to improve the quality and health effectiveness of our products.
Sleep, stress management, and recovery are global interests and megatrends in welfare. The attention they have received has guided research towards discovering the effects of vibration therapy on health and welfare. We believe that vibration therapy will be the next remarkable health promoter. Therefore, we would like to present the studies in the light of which we recommend that you use the Neurosonic treatment to promote your own health and welfare.
How does Neurosonic work?
Neurosonic relaxation devices produce very low-frequency vibrations that have a relaxing effect on the autonomic nervous system. They direct the body into a meditation-like state that relieves stress, enhances recovery, and restores healthy sleep mechanisms. Different effects are achieved in different power and frequency ranges: For example, relaxation and recovery programmes help an athlete or a stressed individual recover faster, and activation programmes increase alertness and prepare the body for future performance.
Neurosonic as an alleviator of sleep disorders
The investigation under the direction of sleep researcher Markku Partinen, conducted at the Helsinki Sleep Clinic (2013), studied the effects of Neurosonic low-frequency treatment on the sleep quality of patients with primary insomnia, and examined 1 patients with sleep disorders, using a randomised controlled trial. Sleep actigraphy measurements indicated a significant reduction in sleep movement, which correlated directly with more profound sleep. Significant changes in anxiety and fear response states that may significantly interfere with sleep were also found in the study-related surveys. The studies found that 70% of the subjects benefitted after five treatments, which significantly reduced anxiety, obsessive–compulsive disorder symptoms, and fear response states.
The study by Heli Haapaniemi (2013) focused on the effects of the Neurosonic treatment on stress and sleep disorders. The study was based on Neurosonic therapy chair products, assessment of subjective sensations, and biosignal measurements that evaluated cardiac electrical activity (EEG, EMG, and ECG). According to the research data, it can be stated that the treatment 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 recovery promoter
The research conducted by Veera Ikonen (2013) investigated the acute effects of the Neurosonic low frequency treatment on physiological and subjective recovery variables. The study measured the immediate effects of the Neurosonic treatment, after exercise, on resting heart rate, heart rate variability, blood lactic acid levels, subjective feeling of recovery, and sleep quality the following night. In summary, a single treatment with Neurosonic appears to have a positive effect on the activation of the recovery nervous system, as well as on recovery from physical exercise.
Vibration affects the immune system and reduces inflammation
There are preliminary studies indicating that vibration transmitted to the whole body reduces inflammation in the bowels 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. Vibration transmitted to the whole body also affects the immune system and increases the amount of cytokines, which reduce inflammation. Thus, there is research evidence that anxiety, among other things, may result partially from the wrong intestinal microbial strain and that balanced microbial activity in the bowels may alleviate, for example, negative stress reactions.
According to the study, vibration also promotes glucose tolerance and renal function, which results in a decrease in inflammatory factors and peripheral neuropathy. Vibration also seems to have an effect on body composition, bone density, and the amount of fat in the body.
Consequently, according to studies and customer feedback, everything suggests that inflammatory conditions in the bowels and muscles are reduced by vibration. At the same time, the body's immunity levels increase, which has positive effects in the prevention and treatment of several diseases, such as MS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and fibromyalgia.
Neurosonic is not a medical device
Although there is already a good amount of research evidence and subjective customer experience on the preventive and healing effects of vibration therapy, Neurosonic is not a medical device. However, the process is ongoing and new research data, as well as customer experiences, are being accumulated all the time.
Nevertheless, we want to emphasise that Neurosonic is not a substitute for medical treatment prescribed by a doctor, nor does it eliminate the real root cause of musculoskeletal disorders. However, it may well serve as a form of support in addition to medical treatments, for example, to improve sleep quality. Although the topic has not yet been studied with regard to Neurosonic, we still have plenty of information from our customer experiences on the effects of Neurosonic on metabolism and blood circulation.
What does Neurosonic affect?
The activity of the autonomic nervous system is balanced, making recovery more efficient. At the same time, muscle blood circulation and metabolism recover faster.
The nerve pathways in an alert state calm down, and positive changes take place in neurotransmitter activity, allowing recovery.
When the mechanisms of sleep are restored, it is easier to fall asleep, nocturnal awakenings are reduced, and sleep quality improves and becomes more restorative.
We let experiences speak for themselves
We hear every day how Neurosonic has helped our customers to feel better. The positive feedback has been impressive. See how many lives have taken on a new direction.
