PUYALLUP, Wash., Nov. 23, 2012 – A rare few holiday gifts can benefit and truly be enjoyed by every member of the family. Even more exceptional is a gift that is multi-dimensional and can be used year-around. Traditionally given to those who suffer from back pain and sciatica, a Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table offers more than just pain relief. This stress-relieving, functional fitness tool is popular with practically all age groups and fitness levels.

A gift for Dad: Does your dad avoid certain activities because his back is tired, tight or leaving him in pain? Just 3-5 minutes on the Teeter in the morning can help him energize and prepare his back for a hard day at work (did you know that sitting behind a desk is 2.5 times harder on your back than standing?). Another short inversion session before bed can help reverse daily compression fatigue and prepare the body for a more relaxed night of sleep. Routine stretching on his Teeter can help keep Dad on his feet and off the sidelines.

A gift for Mom: Does your mom yearn for some “me time” to ease the stress of the day or perhaps a way to fit in a fun and unique stretching and toning workout? With some low lighting and soothing music, Mom can create her very own spa environment while inverting with her Teeter – simply recline and relax to decompress, ease muscle tension, and stimulate circulation. Studies show that tension is relieved in as little as 10 seconds while inverted! And for even greater benefits, she can incorporate a little inverted stretching and exercise to elongate and tone muscles.

A gift for Grandparents: Quite possibly the two most destructive forces to one’s spine is gravity and age. Every day, the force of gravity squeezes vital moisture and nutrients out of the sponge-like disc tissue, decreasing disc height. While most compression is reversed overnight, the cumulative effect over a lifetime averages 1 – 2? in height loss, resulting in lost mobility and flexibility. Combine this effect with weakened core muscles, and you have a formula for increased pain and risk of back injury. With routine inversion on a Teeter, even at a mild 30-45 degrees, Grandma and Grandpa can work on keeping those discs fat and happy, improve flexibility and keep doing the activities they love.

Inversion tables provide a vast array of health benefits and are widely available online or at many local sporting goods, fitness specialty or back care stores. When considering which model to purchase for your family, keep in mind why Teeter Hang Ups is rated the #1 one inversion table brand:
