Local Vibrational Training

I know there are a lot of benefits from using whole body vibrational training, but does anyone here have any literature or personal experience on using local vibrational training, like with a hand held massager?

I have heard about these devices being used to loosen up muscles post exercise, but can they also stimulate the tonic vibration reflex like the whole body platforms?


I personally like them. Increase ROM and blood flow very quickly.

I use them for the same thing, TC. I just bought mine a few days ago, but I already use it whenever anything is tight or sore. It appears to help recovery tremendously.

Still though, does anyone know if hand held vibrational devices can elicit the tonic vibration reflex? Thanks.
