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!

How Can Hydrotherapy Help Us?

Hydrotherapy or “water therapy” is a healing art which goes back thousands of years in recorded history. Most of the major civilizations have practiced some form of water therapy. There are many proven scientific benefits of using water as a therapy.

Therapy spas have been used for many decades around the world with amazing benefits. The M. E. D. therapy spa provides warm water with a depth of about 2 feet with no seating obstructions, and should be at least 5 to 6 feet in diameter. There are also 1 inch massage jets to further relax the muscles and joints with the percussion effect from the water coming out of the jets. Bath tubs and whirlpools are not deep enough, and not wide enough to provide the benefits of a M. E. D. Spa. There are 3 main benefits at work in a M. E. D. Therapy Spa. One is Massage. The second is Exercise. And the third is Decompression, which is why it is called a M. E. D. Spa.
