Using a Teeter Hang Ups can Improve Circulation and Help Reduce Cellulite

You have heard about inversion, how it can help relieve back pain, realign your spine and relax tight muscles. But did you know that using a Teeter Hang Ups can help to improve your overall circulation and reduce cellulite?


That’s right, using a Teeter Hang Ups can help to reduce cellulite?  This is because inversion has been proven to improve circulation, which accelerates the cleansing of blood and lymph fluids.


The cardiovascular system is your body's transportation system, carrying food and oxygen to your body's cells. This isimage2 why maintaining good circulation is so important. Oxygen-rich blood from the lungs travels out through the arteries and waste-filled blood comes back through the veins to be cleansed and recharged with oxygen. Inversion allows your body to work with gravity to ease the circulation process by placing your lower limbs above your heart. Some suggest that inversion can even help temporarily decrease the appearance of varicose veins. When inverting, you are helping your heart to clear the blood from your feet, legs, and lower body where the blood can pool. Only Teeter has precision balancing to make this type of oscillation easier.






Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system has no pump. Only the alternate contraction and relaxation of muscles moves lymphatic fluid upward through capillaries and one-way valves to the upper chest for cleansing and flushing. Inverting the body so that gravity works with these one-way valves helps to push the lactic fluid up to the chest.



What does this have to do with inversion helping to reduce cellulite?


In her book Beyond Cellulite, Nicole Ronsard discusses the role of the lymph system in creating cellulite, and ways in which people can help stimulate lymph flow to reduce cellulite. She explains that when the flow of lymph is slowed down, a stagnation of fluid occurs in the tissues. In areas where circulation tends to be poor and relies almost entirely on gravity to move it back up, as in the hip and thigh area, this stagnation encourages the formation of cellulite. By "reversing" the flow of blood and lymph fluids in the body, you can increase the nourishment of cells and accelerate the removal of wastes. She recommends inversion: “…is particularly effective because it's easy to use, and it allows for long, sustained periods of reversal.”
