1) The “John of God Bed” :

john_of_god_crystal_lightsWhat is it?

∞ While you relax on a comfortable massage table, 7 high-frequency colored lights directly above you shine through crystals with specific vibrations.  The lights are positioned 18 inches above your body and arrayed from the head to the lower body on the energetic centers to open and charge each of them.

∞ These crystals are very special and unique as they have been energized and infused with the powers of highly evolved healing spirit doctors at the time the crystals were originally formed. They are also each blessed by John of God. As these lights and crystals work on you, they custom adjust for what you personally need with the use of a frequency meter.

∞ Crystal beds are purchased directly from the Casa of Dom Ignacio, Brazil with permission from John of God.

 ∞ The guidance of a qualified facilitator, also granted permission by John of God, is the protocol for best results.

This treatment is a type of Chromotherapy. Chromatherapy is a powerful mixture of light, color and crystal radiation that positively influence the body, tissue, cells, organs, skin, mind and spirit to stimulate their healing.

∞ The color, light and crystal vibrations are delivered to the different parts of the body in a unique and very pleasant way, while one is lying relaxed on a comfortable table, listening to soft music with the eyes closed.

∞ All major civilizations recognized the importance of light, color and crystals in healing. The Assyrians, Babylonians and Egyptians all practiced therapeutic sunbathing.  The Greek city of Heliopolis was renowned for it’s colored windows in temples and light rooms. Just as here, different colors and crystals were used for their therapeutic healing powers during the centuries of different civilizations.

3) T-Zone Sessions

tzone$35 for the 1st Month (Usually $50) with the purchase of the 2nd at regular price

10 Minutes on this T-Zone Whole Body Vibration Machine is equivalent to a 1 Hour Workout.

Sessions are Available Weekdays Daytime.
Call in Advance to Secure Session Time, (310) 479-0430.

When you stand on T-Zone’s Oscillating vibration Platform (considered the safest form of Vibration and CSA approved), vertical vibrations are produced with a side-alternating rocking movement.

Our body reacts to this natural stimulus with an involuntary reflex muscle contraction. Depending on the speed, muscles will react up to 23 times per second (approximately 11-12 contractions and 11-12 relaxations), and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it “weighs” more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or “load” of gravity in every movement you perform.

The result without drugs while low impact and kind to your joints = more benefits! Unlike other fitness machines, T-Zone’s Vibration Technology is particularly unique because it may achieve results for a wide range of objectives, for all ages and body types including:

– Increase Muscle Strength
– Tone and Firm Muscles
– Improve Circulation
– Improve Mobility
– Stimulate Lymphatic System
– Improve Flexibility
– Increase Metabolism
– Improve Balance
– Decrease Cellulite
– Build Bone Mass Density
– Prevent and Reverse Osteoporosis
– Reverse Arthritis
– Reduce Common Incontinence
– Help other conditions such as: Back Pain, Fibromyalgia, Neurological Disorders and more below…

Like all new exercise programs, it’s important to consult your health care professional first. Whether you’re physically fit or a non-exerciser, overweight, suffering from stiffness, aches and pains or recovering from an injury, almost anyone can enjoy the benefits of this machine.

Whole Body Vibration is very safe but may not be suitable for some people. Please be sure to seek medical advice before using WBV. In particular, if you are pregnant, have a pacemaker or other implant, or have any medical condition whatsoever, please do not undertake Whole Body Vibration without the approval of your medical practitioner.


Extensive worldwide research shows Whole Body Vibration to have far-reaching health benefits:

Accelerated Weight Loss
The way we look, feel, and function all relies on strong muscles. Even at rest our muscles burn calories at a rate based on our metabolism. The more lean muscle mass we have – the more calories we burn! Vibration Training can give a sluggish metabolism just the boost it needs… up to an 18% increase from 10 minute sessions, just 3 times a week over 6 weeks. (Bonner Physical Therapy, 2003) So even when relaxing, you’ll be burning considerably more calories with Vibration training! Combined with a cardio workout, you have the complete package – firming, toning and optimum weight loss! (also refer to firming and toning).

Anti-Aging
Gentle Whole Body Vibration Exercise can prevent age-related muscle loss, increase flexibility and range of motion. It also stimulates the production of collagen, creating tighter, more beautiful skin. It’s all possible! The fact that scientific research has shown Vibration Exercise can help fight Osteoporosis is exciting (refer to “For Bones). So for older generations this could well be the most important discovery in decades.

Back Pain
When you’re on your feet all day or just sitting at a desk, back pain can be debilitation and affects millions! The VT12-’s side-alternating platform immediately activates those ‘key’ stabilizing muscles at the body’s core – when weak they’re the trigger for back problems. Strong core muscles mean we develop a better posture to promote spinal health and keep us free from back pain. Because Vibration increases circulation to the problem areas, you no longer have the need to do special exercises that may be painful and cause discomfort (those exercises that are normally associated with strengthening weak core muscles).

Beauty
Who wouldn’t appreciate a beauty treatment 3-5 times a week! Using the VT-12 will improve circulation, carry vital oxygen to your cells and tissues, and assist in flushing toxins, while increasing your production of collagen. This will result in firmer, smoother skin, with a significant reduction in cellulite! Research shows that with just 3 sessions a week (11 hours total over 24 weeks) it’s possible to reduce cellulite on your thighs and buttocks by a massive 25.7%! (Sanaderm Anti Cellulite Untersuchung, 2003) And when you combine Vibration Training with cardio exercise it’s been shown that a cellulite reduction of 32% can be achieved.

Bones
Strong bones are what keep us young!  Extensive studies show that after 39 years of age, women have a rate of bone loss double that of men!  Post-menopausal women are most affected, so this is serious stuff.
Resistance training, i.e. what we’re told to do at the gym or at home with resistance bands and weights, shows no benefit to improving bone density.  But the exciting news is that WBV can provide excellent results with little effort.  This is according to the ground breaking study reported in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research in 2006.

Circulation
Increased blood circulation is a notable benefit of Vibration, even at low speeds. As a result, your cells receive more oxygen and nourishment. The body also develops better lymphatic drainage to improve our overall health and immunity. It does this by taking away waste products and moving white blood cells to where they are needed. White blood cells are like the ‘cavalry’ of the body – removing debris from the broken down cells and attacking invading agents, such as poisons and bacteria.

Flexibility and Strength
These are what every sports active person must possess to achieve greatness! The VT-12 delivers these benefits. As it stimulates muscles, there is a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility.

Feeling Good
Just relax… the VT-12 can reduce the effects of stress by decreasing cortisol levels (the ‘stress hormone’). And with WBV you get that natural ‘high’ after every workout. It’s true… in fact it’s a chemical reaction! As a result of the vibrations our bodies increase their secretion of serotonin, the “feel good” neurotransmitter. You’ll get that overall feeling of youth and energy. You’ll also have the benefits of improving mental stimulation and concentration.

Firming and Toning
Lost a lot of weight? Then you’ll know how difficult it is to maintain muscle tone. The fact is… weight loss does not discriminate between fat and muscle. So if you lose 10 lbs/kgs of fat you may lose 1lb/kg of muscle – and lean muscle is very hard to replace. The only way to preserve muscle is through resistance exercise. And with WBV this can be accomplished far more effectively that conventional weight training in the gym.

Massage
More than just an exercise and rehabilitation machine the VT-12 offers the luxury of whole body massage and relaxation. Massage also benefits overall health and has been shown to improve physical performance, prevent and eliminate injuries, reduce stress, improve circulation and assist in flushing toxins.

Rehabilitation
WBV can prevent injuries, but just as important, it can help in the rehabilitation process. Many professional sports teams, physiotherapists and chiropractors have found WBV to be an invaluable tool – having an ability to strengthen muscles without the usual strain on joints and ligaments.

The process of rehabilitation involves an increase in blood flow causing a dramatic spike in Human Growth Hormone (HGH) – the key to repair and regeneration of soft tissue. While improved circulation also helps to drain fluid build-up from injured tissue, Vibration stimulates a combined release of hormones and natural chemicals to suppress pain. Used for rehab, this really is a “wonder therapy”.

Your Muscles
With Whole Body Vibration you can expect similar strength gains to conventional resistance/gym training in a fraction of the time. Scientific studies have proven these rapid strength gains. A 10 minute Vibration workout will give similar benefits to a 1 hour gym session.

Plantars Fasciitis
There have been many questions about foot pain and Plantar Fasciitis when using Whole Body Vibration. In general, Vibration Therapy will help stretch, massage and strengthen the muscles in the foot. The following is an explanation of Plantar Fasciitis, a common foot problem that is often helped with WBV.

Under normal circumstances, your plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch in your foot. But, if tension on that bowstring becomes too great, it can create small tears in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the fascia to become irritated or inflamed. Some causes of plantar fasciitis can be:

1. Physical Activity Overload
2. Arthritis
3. Diabetes
4. Faulty foot mechanics
5. Improper shoes
6. Poor diet

Plantar “acidic” fasciitis is one of the most frequently seen conditions by foot and ankle orthopedic surgeons. It is an overuse injury affecting a band of tissue (fascia), which supports the arch and extends from the heel to the toes. Simply, it is an inflammatory, stage 4 acidic “wear and tear” of a tissue within the foot.

Doctors may hesitate prescribing medication or surgically ‘going in’ to bring the fascia ‘back to life’ because the problem is often not with the tissues directly but with the acidic lifestyle, diet and metabolism that is affecting the tissues.

Whole Body Vibration using Oscillating/Pivotal Technology approximately ten minutes a day will increase lymphatic circulation to remove acids from the plantar fascia. The Vibration Therapy also helps to vibrate acids out of the tissues causing the pain or inflammation. Involuntary muscle contractions will also help tone and build weak muscles in the legs and feet helping to improve balance, coordination, and other possible lower extremity issues.
