FAQ Friday: When Will You Begin to Feel the Benefits of Inversion?
How long before you feel the benefits?
Given time, your body has an amazing ability to heal itself. But like starting a new exercise program, it can take some time to see the results. Stick with it, invert often and be patient. Work on getting your body to relax and release – that is how you will experience the most benefits. Gentle movements and stretching can help with this process. Some people feel the benefits immediately and some may need 2-3 weeks before their bodies begin to adapt.
Here are a few other helpful tips for beginners:
- Pre-Set the Angle: Set your Angle Tether to a modest angle – you can then focus on relaxing and adjusting to inversion.
- Make Changes Gradually: Increase your angle and/or duration of inversion in small increments. Don’t attempt to do too much, too soon. It’s all about relaxation, not about how far down or how long you can invert.
- Breathe: Close your eyes and take deep breaths. Concentrate on relaxing your muscles to experience the most benefits.
