Have you ever thought about doing inversions and hanging upside down for awhile?
Inversions can have many benefits on the body. Inversion uses your body weight to decompress the spine as your hang upside down.

What is the Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table and how can it help you?
*Disclaimer: I was offered to review the Teeter Hang Ups through my affiliation with Hawke Media. I was offered this inversion table in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed on my blog are my own.
Recently I was contacted about trying out the Teeter Hang-Ups Inversion Table. I had never tried inverting myself before but have friends who have loved using them. The timing for this review couldn’t have come at a better time since I have been having back troubles of my own and at this point I am willing to try anything.
The Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table arrived in a box and required some assembly. Organic Runner Dad was able to easily assemble the table in around 20 minutes and all of the tools were provided. Once it was assembled we were ready to just “hang around” for awhile.
The Table comes with an adjustable lumbar bridge to support the lower back, acupressure nodes that you can add to address specific pressure points, A healthy Back and Core Routine DVD. There is also a head rest. The table is fully adjustable for height. The height adjustment needs to be correct in order to achieve the perfect balance point when you are ready to invert. There is also an adjustable tether that you can set up to allow for your desired inversion angle. There are comfortable, adjustable foam cups that support your ankles and securely hold you in place when you invert. The Inversion “bed also has hand grips that allow for greater stretching when you are inverted.
My experience with the Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table
I was nervous to try the table for the first time because the sensation of tipping over backwards startled me a bit. Once I was in position I actually liked the sensation. It felt so nice to have the pressure taken off my spine. It took some adjustments to figure out the right height setting to get the balance point just right. I also decide that I am most comfortable using the tether so as not to tip over farther than I want to. It is an odd sensation when you first hang upside down because you do get pressure in your head from blood flow.
I have been using the Teeter Table a few times a week for about ten minutes a time. The stretching feels great and hopefully my time on the Teeter is having positive stretching benefits for my back. When I use the Teeter I typically spend about 10 minutes on the table.
My kids were intrigued by the looks of this crazy contraption although they are too small yet to hang upside down. Organic Runner Dad has tried out the Teeter Hang Ups Inversion Table as well and loved the feeling of lengthening in his spine. He is also excited about the possibility of using it for abdominal exercises in an inverted position.
