Discs: It uses grav­ity to ap­ply trac­tion, the trac­tion gen­tly opens the discs and as they open up they cre­ate suc­tion, this suc­tion draws uid from the sur­round­ing tis­sue back into the discs, re-hy­drat­ing them. This is the key! Discs do not have their own blood sup­ply, they rely on trans­fer of uid from the sur­round­ing tis­sue to keep them healthy and hy­drated and over the years as discs get thin­ner with age, they lose the abil­ity to take on uid (just like squeez­ing a sponge) and they start to de-hy­drate.

De-Hy­drated discs are less ex­i­ble, they are harder, more prone to in­jury, they in­ter­fere with nerve roots cre­at­ing pain and ul­ti­mately the de-hy­dra­tion causes de­gen­er­a­tion. The Teeter In­ver­sion ta­ble slowly and gen­tly brings the hy­dra­tion back into the discs, plump­ing them up. This brings back lost height (most peo­ple will re­gain around 2 CM of height), it sep­a­rates the nerve roots far more e ec­tively and re­turns qual­ity of life

Mus­cles: A lot of pain is mus­cu­lar, when mus­cles are stressed they be­come tight which re­stricts the ow of blood and lymph through the mus­cles so tox­ins build up, Co2 and Lac­tic Acid. Trac­tion opens up the mus­cles, Rhyth­mic Trac­tion, is a gen­tle rock­ing mo­tion that stim­u­lates cir­cu­la­tion and en­cour­ages blood ow through the mus­cles, which clears the lac­tic acid into your lymph sys­tem where it stim­u­lates lymph ow and deals with it. Most peo­ple with se­ri­ous neck is­sues see a large im­prove­ment after only one treat­ment.

Pos­ture: Poor pos­ture is one of the ma­jor cases of pain and is a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to the de­te­ri­o­ra­tion of the body with age. A di er­ence in leg length causes most of the hip and knee is­sues, as they con­tinue to place un­even loads on the joints; sim­i­lar to the wheels out of align­ment on your car.

Try­ing to cor­rect pos­ture is ex­tremely di cult due to mus­cle mem­ory, as it con­stantly pulls the mus­cles back to where they were. At a level of 40 de­grees or more on the Teeter, the mus­cle groups open up and even­tu­ally come back into align­ment, us­ing the ta­ble daily, does not al­low the mus­cle mem­ory to pull them back out of align­ment and slowly the mus­cles start to lose their mem­ory and go with the ow, al­low­ing the body to come back into cor­rect pos­ture. Then us­ing the ta­ble once a day will en­sure it is kept there.

This is pure logic, if a ma­chine is out of align­ment it does not last long, the only di er­ence be­tween the body and a ma­chine is that the body is con­stantly re­pair­ing it­self, how­ever if the wear and tear on the body is greater than the body’s abil­ity to re­pair it­self, it is a slow de­cline. The Teeter slowly brings the body out of its de­cline and al­lows the body to re­pair it­self, re­sult­ing in a far health­ier life.

If you are se­ri­ous about in­vest­ing in your health and re­ally sort­ing your is­sues out, come see us at one of our lo­cal road­shows, you have noth­ing to lose and chances are, a lot to gain.
