OSTEOSTRONG: Your Key to Stronger Bones, Strength, Balance and Overall Well Being
Did you know that 20% of bone loss can occur during menopause and approximately 1 in 10 women over the age of 60 are affected by osteoporosis worldwide? While prescription medications, weight bearing exercises and even walking can slow or stop bone loss, the bone loss that comes with aging can not be stopped completely. However, the good news is that you CAN slow the progression of bone loss by building bone density,
I’m one of those women, over the age of 60, who has been diagnosed with osteopenia.
About the time I received this diagnosis, a trusted friend told me about a national company called OSTEOSTRONG, that focuses on improving bone density, muscular strength, balance and overall well being. I was intrigued and decided to do some additional research. At the end of my research, I am happy to say that I am enjoying the benefits of being a client of Osteostrong and wanted to share my experience with you.
WHAT IS OSTEOSTRONG?
OSTEOSTRONG dates back to 2011 when its Medical and Scientific Advisor learned that his Mother was diagnosed with a debilitating case of osteoporosis at age 60. He was determined to improve her quality of life and while working on his doctoral dissertation in biomedical engineering research, Dr. John Jaquish, Ph.D. invented a device that triggers the effects of high impact loading, known as “osteogenisis”, without the risk of injury.
Tested over a four year period on human subjects, and now used in clinics worldwide, the system has proved of positive benefit to individuals of all ages.
By 2014, Osteostrong became one of the country’s fastest growing franchises, now with approximately 550 franchises across the country, including several locations in New York City. One of its early investors and its Chief Development Officer is Tony Robbins, known for his philanthropy and self-help books including Unlimited Power and Awaken the Giant Within. With a rigorous worldwide schedule , he was looking for tools and a system that would increase and sustain his energy, strength and stamina and is a powerful testimony for the brand.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
OSTEOSTRONG is not a gym, diet, supplement, pharmaceutical or a medical treatment. Wearing comfortable clothing, OSTEOSTRONG clients come in once a week, briefly stand on vibrations platforms to warm up, and then start a series of movements on four resistance machines that cover every part of the body—-a chest press, leg press, core press, and a vertical lift to strength the skeletal system (and posture). The entire circuit takes 10 minutes and safely enables you to place adequate pressure on your muscular skeletal system.
The moment your body senses the correct amount of stimulus, it can respond by actually triggering new bone and muscle tissue naturally. This brief, intense resistance exercise is known as “osteogenic loading”.
HOW DOES OSTEOSTRONG MAXIMIZE THE CLIENT EXPERIENCE?
When NASA noticed its astronauts returning from space feeling ill and exhausted, it began to research the effects of magnetic fields on human performance. When the agency added pulsating electromagnetic fields to its spacecraft, the problem disappeared. And a four year NASA study proved that this type of therapy can improve the growth and repair of human tissues in animals and humans. Thus, the PEMF mats used at OSTEOSTRONG help members, promote healing in a variety of bone disorders, and allows clients to leave their sessions feeling their best. The PEMF mats also eliminate electro magnetic smog from your body
RED LIGHT THERAPY
A class ll medical device, with thousands of peer-reviewed studies, the wavelengths of red light therapy trigger a chemical reaction in the cells mitochandria that has helped members enhance their physical performance, reduce inflammation, decrease joint pain and improve osteoporosis. While lying comfortably on a PEMF Mat, clients can also experience the red light therapy and restore cellular function.
Peristaltic pulse dynamic compression (PPDC) has long been used by athletes to boost blood flow and remove metabolites from the body. But when athletes at the US Olympic Training Recovery Center used these devices for recovery, they also experienced an unexpected and rapid increase in flexibility. This sparked further studies and fostered widespread use of such devices, which uses rhythmic pressures on the limbs. After putting on the Normadic boot, it will adjust to your exact body shape, with a pulsating pattern (like a massage) that keeps fluids flowing in the right direction, while reducing blood lactate levels, increasing circulation, reducing any soreness and maximizing the benefits of your osteogenic loading session.
BIOCHARGER: Enhance your energy and overall well-being with energy medicine
Science confirms the existence of a subtle energy field around all living organisms. When optimal, this energy regulates cellular function. When not in balance, it causes cellular dysfunction, which decreases physical performance, injury recovery and overall well-being. The BioCharger is a subtle energy revitalization platform that uses four types of transmitted energy-light voltages, frequencies, harmonics and Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields (PEMFs) to stimulate and invigorate the body. A touch-free, safe, rejuvenating full body treatment, BioCharger supports the recovery of strength, stamina, coordination and mental clarity. Members experience a customized electromagnetic field that bathes the full body in frequencies designed to restore homeostasis. Users report measurable improvements in energy levels, fatigue and overall well being.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST
Monthly memberships starts at $229 per month. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (HSA) may be applicable with a physicians prescription for osteogenic loading; possible Medicare reimbursement fall under CPT Code S9970 and a Letter of Medical Necessity along with an Osteostrong billing statement.
