Inversion therapy involves hanging upside down to apply gentle traction to the spine. Inversion was invented as early as 400 B.C. when Hippocrates (the father of medicine) first watched a patient hoisted upside down on a ladder for a dose of 'spinal traction'. Not only can Inversion Therapy help to treat back pain but it can be used to reverse the negative effects of ageing on the spine

WHAT IS AN INVERSION TABLE?
Inversion Table is an adjustable platform which allows positioning in an upright or inverted position in order to allow the effects of gravity to meet therapeutic requirements.

HOW DOES AN INVERSION TABLE OPERATE?
The balance of Inversion Table is so precise that control of the rotation can be effected by simple arm movements. A tether strap allows the rotation to be arrested at any desired angle. Adjustable roller hinges allow adjustment of the rate of rotation. The table can be locked at 90° for full inversion in order to stabilise during exercise.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE DANGERS OF INVERSION THERAPY?
Although this activity is safe we recommend seeking professional medical advice for example from your doctor before using inversion therapy equipment. The following are contraindications for inversion therapy (should not be done): pregnancy, hernia, glaucoma, retinal detachment, conjunctivitis, high blood pressure, recent stroke, heart or circulatory disorders, spinal injury, cerebral sclerosis, swollen joints, osteoporosis, unhealed fractures, surgically implanted supports, use of anticoagulants, ear infection and obesity.

30 MINUTES INVERSION SESSION: R180

NOTE: A R180 cancellation fee applies for appointments cancelled less that 24 hours before the time. 

NOTE: Inversion is a totally safe and complementary treatment (it does not replace medical treatment) but there are some physical conditions which could be contra-indicatory to massage. If you are being treated by a GP for anything please let me know in advance.

NOTE: Inversion is NOT a sexual service.
