As the days get warmer and longer, you’ll likely spend more time outside doing the things you love like gardening or golf – activities which can take a toll on your back! Summers are for spending time with family and friends, not for suffering from back pain. Here’s some simple yoga stretches for the back you can do – even while outdoors – to supplement your Teeter inversion routine:
Most Success Stories that we post are excerpts from customer letters or emails. While more difficult to convey, it’s not uncommon for us to field phone calls from happy people who just have to tell someone how much the Teeter has done for them. Just recently, one of our Customer Service agents had this to share (these type of phone calls make their day and ours too!):
“A customer called to say that he has only used his Teeter one time to about 30 degrees of inversion… and now he is pain free! He told me that his back has been in such pain that it would cause him to cry in the mornings before he even got out of bed, and he doesn’t cry easily. Today, he is sitting up and feeling great. He said that Mr. Teeter must use one himself to have designed such a great machine.”
While certainly not a typical experience, this customer found relief after just one session on his Teeter! Now, we all know that the relief is temporary and a regular, daily inversion routine is needed to help decompress and ease tension in the back… but it was fun to hear how excited this customer was after his first experience.

As the nanny for the CEO of Teeter, Rylie Leier, I was exposed to a unique perspective of the company and employees. When I was first asked to come in for an interview, Rylie sent me a link of their website. She told me that I should check it out and see a little bit about what they do, since I will be so closely involved with their family. My initial reaction was skepticism, thoughts like, “hanging upside down certainly didn’t seem like a fix for back pain,” and “there was no way people were actually buying into this!”
As I started taking care of the children, I began to see what this company actually had to offer. The people who worked in the office actually believed in the product, and used it in their homes. I got to know the family and realized they were sincerely passionate about this product, used it themselves, and wanted to help people struggling with back pain. I had realized that this was not just a business pushing products, but Teeter Inversion Tables were sold by people who loved and believed in inversion.
I later transitioned jobs and became an employee of the company. For my first project, I was involved in reviewing written and video testimonials. These were the unedited versions of what actual customers had to say about the product. There were several that stuck out to me, one in particular made me go from skeptic to believer. Teeter Hang Ups went to Green Lake Park in Seattle and asked random people try a Teeter inversion table. Here was my chance to discover the truth – did people actually believe the Teeter worked? I was shocked that even after just a few minutes on the Teeter, random bystanders responded in surprise that they could immediately feel the positive effects from inverting. When I could see on camera their faces and genuine responses, I couldn’t deny it any longer, these Teeter Inversion Tables are making a difference in people’s lives. This was just one of the many testimonials that enlightened me on how inversion therapy really impacts people and gives relief that they couldn’t find elsewhere.
I have now found myself talking about Teeter Hang Ups with random people at the doctor or grocery store, because I know how much it can help. I have always been a very skeptical person, so I approached Teeter Hang Ups in the way I do everything else, with doubt and inquisition. I have been proven wrong; inversion therapy really does work and can benefit your health in so many ways.

I purchased a Teeter Hang Ups from an exercise equipment store after I was injured in a serious auto accident. I began using the inversion to supplement the almost year of therapy to help improve my posture and relieve pain. I had to drive 100 miles a day for my job, and could not have done it without this product. With an exercise program and using inversion to this very day, almost 16 years later I am pain free and started training at 42 to be a bodybuilder – after training to run a half marathon. I can’t thank you enough for offering this exceptional product. I still have the original unit that I purchased and it works as well as the day I purchased it.
