About Inversion Therapy

Modern Inversion Therapy procedures have demonstrated multiple therapeutic
possibilities that continue to expand.

Welcome to Inversion Therapy

Inversion Therapy was used as early as 400 BC by Hippocrates. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, suspended the patient on a ladder in an appropriate manner in order to allow gravity to exercise therapeutic traction. ”

These modern Inversion Therapy procedures have demonstrated multiple therapeutic possibilities that continue to expand.

How does an inversion therapy 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 stabilize during exercise.
