Passive Exercise and the Thera-Plex UnitJacob
Thera-Plex Passive Exercise Unit is a resistance / passive exercise unit designed to increase circulation to all parts of the body while improving muscle tone and breaking down unwanted fat! Basically it is an easy exercise. It really is!
The Thera-Plex passive exercise unit uses stimulated circulation to transport toxins and impurities, once broken down during treatments, outside the body, and tightens and tones the skin around the muscle minus impurities. In simple terms: all you have to do is recline on the unit and “shake off” your body fat.
One of the passive exercise unit’s greatest assets is that it can accommodate everyone’s schedule. A minimum of three to thirty minutes of treatment (or 90 minutes total) is needed each week to achieve the desired results. Of course, the more treatments taken per week, up to an hour a day maximum, the faster the results will be obtained.
When used in conjunction with a sensible diet, a minimum of three treatments (1/2 hour) per week can produce a weight loss of four to six pounds per month. It is very common to find clients who lose 3 pounds 6-8 inches every two weeks!
Some people use the unit for medical reasons. It is a great exercise for those who are totally paralyzed and even for those who have been in car accidents. This is usually the type of exercise that one would do after their physical therapy has ended. The unit has been shown to relieve pain, sometimes even cure paralysis. You see, the unit is running at speed and a customer suffering from an injury or pain can start at a speed of 2-3 and advance at higher speeds further down the line.
The unit uses five exercise positions designed to stimulate the entire circulatory system in sequential order, starting with the upper body and working throughout the body, using undulation (a type of gentle vibration), not a potentially harmful vibration. The unit offers mild cardiovascular conditioning and stimulation while firming and toning the entire body, resulting in inch loss.
The unit is individually programmed for each person’s needs, so that each person can put more emphasis on problem areas, allowing them to lose where they need to lose, those little problem areas that we all have!
Since the treatments are passive in concept, most people generally do not sweat and do not tire of taking their treatments every week. In fact, most people find treatments to be relaxing and stimulating at the same time! The rest cycle is the stretch cycle where you slow down a bit to get acclimated to standing up again, kind of like what you would do on a “cool down” after an exercise class.
This really is an easy exercise!
