Help turn your upside down world right side up with  Inversion Therapy  PDF Attachment

Inversion Therapy uses gravity to relieve pressure that many normal everyday activities put on our back. This downward force helps to elongate the spine by increasing the space between the vertebrae, relieving the pressure on discs, ligaments and nerve roots. Less pressure means less back pain. Less pain is only one of the benefits on inversion therapy some of the other benefits include:

  • Stretches your muscles
  • Decompresses the spine
  • Improves circulation
  • Relieves stress
  • Reduce back pain
  • Helps maintain physical fitness

Let's take a closer look at how Inversion Therapy can help improve your health:

Stretches your Muscles 

Combined with a therapeutic massage or inverting without a massage, Inversion Therapy helps to stretch tight, overworked muscles.  Gravity and your body's natural weight are used to create a downward force - a natural form of traction on your back.

Improves Circulation 

In essence, your lymph system is stimulated while inverted.  This helps to allow the lymph glands to start or increase release of the toxic waste stored in your system.  Allowing this waste to be eliminated through improved circulation will help you feel more energetic and healthier.  

Relieves Stress

We all know about the harmful effects stress causes on our bodies such as tense muscles, increased heart rate and headaches.  Inversion Therapy helps you relieve stress by stretching your muscles and giving your body a chance to slow down even if it's only for a few minutes. 

Reduce Back Pain

Although there are many causes of back pain such as everyday activities, actions that are too strenuous for your physical level, or poor posture, Inversion Therapy has been shown to provide temporary pain relief. As you're inverted, gravity helps relieve pressure on your nerves and spinal discs to temporarily reduce back pain.

Helps maintain physical fitness

Workouts are beneficial for overall health, but continued impact can cause some form of compression on the spine. Continued intense muscle activities can also create a build-up of lactic acid, which can cause tension in the muscles. Athletes prone to this type of discomfort can use Inversion Therapy for relief from stiffness or muscle spasms after a workout. Inverting the body helps flush the lactic acid from the muscle while stretching it at the same time.
