Inversion Therapy – $25 Per Session (20 mins)
“You can do it put your back into it!” – Ice Cube
With age, comes issues. One of the most common is back pain. When inversions are preformed in the Suspension Yoga™ Gym, the force of gravity pulls in the opposite direction to help correct subluxations in the spinal column. This gently aligns and decompresses the spine, relieving pressure off the spinal discs and helps diminish back pain. Studies have proven inversions to be helpful to correcting or greatly improving the condition of herniated discs, herniated nucleus pulposis, spondylolisthesis, lumbar osteoarthritis, sciatica, paralytic scoliosis and inclinatory skeletal defects (rib angle changes, thin discs and compression wedging of the vertebrae.
Furthermore, the human spine is not developed until about the age of 12. Inverting at a young age can prevent spinal problems before they start as well as creating postural awareness. This is particularly important given the amount of time children (and adults) sit hunched in front of a computer or at poorly designed desks.
