Researchers at Rush Medical Center Say Vibration Therapy Helps People with PD
Research shows that vibration therapy for Parkinson’s disease helps to reverse symptoms. Yea! The vibration therapy used in a Rush Medical Center research study was manufactured by NexNeuro. It used proprietary transducers engineered to vibrate the body with low frequencies for optimal psychological and physical impact. Tissues throughout the body vibrate to music medicine recorded by Dr. Susanne Jonas that resonate through the body’s nerves, skin and bones.
The SMART Lounge nourishes the mind – body connection and thus enhances the neurological system’s ability to function efficiently and effectively. Vibration therapy combines sound therapy and vibration into a single therapy which facilitates the healing effects of brain entrainment. Brain entrainment or “brainwave synchronization” is any practice that aims to cause brainwave frequency to fall into step with a periodic stimulus having a frequency corresponding to the intended brain-state (e.g., to induce sleep).
The SMART Lounge’s composers orchestrate binaural beats and brainwave entrainment into a Kinesthetic Audio for persons who are currently experiencing the symptoms of Parkinson’s.
The SMART Lounge is designed to be set up in a room your home. Many people set it up in their exercise rooms. It is the size of a chaise lounge chair.

Rush Medical Center Research Study
Researchers at Rush Medical Center in Chicago have been studying the effects of the SMART lounge with 20 research subjects who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The formal study results will be released in January, 2011 but Rush doctors are already talking about vibration therapy in news broadcasts.
It is now two years later and I have continued my healthy diet and acoustic vibration therapy. I also devote 30 minutes a day to prayer and meditation along with my vibration treatments. I have found great relief and improvement from my disease with the therapy and feel I am still improving. Proving this point, my doctor also noted at my yearly physical that my joints weren’t nearly as rigid as they were the year before and as they have been in the past.
Even with the Parkinson’s, I feel I can still perform the activities an average 81 year old male can perform. Some of the activities I do on a daily or weekly basis are: mowing the lawn with a self propelled mower, gardening, weeding flower beds, cooking, fixing things around the house, putting a gallon water jug on top the water cooler, riding my bike and walking with walking poles.
On my 80th birthday I received a TV antenna and was able to install it on the roof myself. Also, this past June my granddaughter threw her hula hoop onto the roof of our house and I was able to climb the TV tower to the roof, walk across and retrieve the hula hoop.
When I initially started my acoustic vibration therapy treatment I was hoping to merely lower my dosage of medications yet I have found with the daily treatments I am able to stay completely pharmacologic free. I would like to thank you for your dedication and research of this disease and will be forever grateful for the acoustic vibration therapy.”

100% 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
NexNeuro, the company that manufactures the VibroMax and the SMART Lounge, offers a 30 day 100% money back guarantee. The feedback I have heard from people who have experienced the therapeutic effects of vibroacoustic therapy indicate that people experience a noticeable relief of symptoms soon after use. Depending on the person and the symptoms, positive effects last from several hours to several days. In other words, you don’t have to experience vibration therapy for more than 30 days before knowing whether it will offer you sustained relief from your symptoms.
As I see it, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain to give either the VibroMax or the SMART Lounge a try. If vibration therapy does not help as much as you would like, you can always ship it back Nexneuro for a full refund within 30 days after receiving your shipment.
I personally believe sound therapy is the medicine of the future. Vibrations enhance the effects of sound. I like this technology because it offers people who are seriously debilitated with the symptoms of Parkinson’s a viable opportunity to get back on their feet and join others who are on the road to recovery. If a person cannot walk, they probably cannot exercise, but they will be able to take advantage of vibration therapy.
People who are fully functional report that they also experience relief from symptoms as their body remembers how to relax and balance those precious harmones.
