Is Gravity our Friend?

    It’s very interesting that inverting the human body allows you to turn the table on gravity, and use gravity as a positive exercise and therapy tool. It’s true that we need gravity, or we would all float away. However, what does gravity actually do to our body? Is it a positive, or a negative? Can we work with gravity?

    Inversion and oscillation is probably the oldest and most extensively researched exercise and therapy in the world. It has been practiced all over the world, and goes back thousands of years! The ‘Roman Chair’ has been used for thousands of years, and is basically what we now call the ‘hyperextension bench’. The modern Inversion Table has been used around the world for over 30 years.

Cleansing and Detoxification with an Infrared Sauna

    Sauna Cleansing has been practiced as a healing therapy for thousands of years in many parts of the world. Throughout Russia, northern Europe, and the Scandinavian countries, saunas have been used to successfully prevent and treat many different types of diseases. In some Scandinavian countries they say, “If a sauna won’t cure you, then
nothing will.”
    Sauna Cleansing is achieved by simply raising your body core temperature by being exposed to heated air, steam, or infrared heat in a sauna room. By raising your body core temperature you are creating an artificial fever, and the body goes into overdrive to try and cool itself back down to 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. In order to do this, fluid from the sweat glands and lymphatic system is pushed out through the skin which is called “perspiration”. Having water on the skin has a cooling effect on the body, and as a result the core temperature is lowered. By creating this artificial fever many positive things start to happen in the body!
