THis sounds very promising...Ailements like wrinkles, constipation, diarrhea, IBS, acne, hair loss, cold hands and feet disappearing. Can ppl who own the table add their testimonial....
I have read that chiro can do wonders. Inversion also works on the principle of straightening the spine. Except the fact that u dont have to drive to chiropractor and wait and then get adjusted. Just do it in the privacy of your home.
Some chiropractors discourage inversion, because that means they will lose their customer. Doesn't it make sense?
Anyone able to normalise their high BP by inverting??
If anyone has had -ve experience from inverting, pls dont hesitate to share. Although, that might mean that you went at large angle very soon, and body was not prepared for it.
thanks. ( I dont own the table yet, but I am excited abt the possibilities)
I am so grateful to have discovered your site. I had been coveting an inversion system for over a decade and fell in love with Hang Ups I had tried on a showroom floor somewhere. This table is the epitome of a well-crafted machine: sturdy, strong, smooth and simple to set up. I can set my F7000 up in about 30 seconds, after I slide it away from where it leans against the wall. I weigh 118 lbs and the table weighs 70 lbs, so I tuck the foam handle under my arm and use the length of the arm to bring the table against my body to shift it and add stability along the vertical meridian. I have no problem moving it smoothly across the Babirye carpet, though I have to be mindful to do it slowly, so leaning doesn't occur. Every time I set it up, at least once daily, I marvel at its sound construction. The F7000 is the Mercedes Benz of Inversion Tables...and I can say that, I own a classic Mercedes.
In addition to the excellence of this machine, I was delighted by your attention to me and my order, your thorough instructions and the completeness of materials I received. Your excellent pricing made this long time dream come true for me and I look forward each day to my blissful "upside down time."
Thank you again for your excellence in service and your eye for excellence in products. I would recommend you and this table to anyone.
Dr. Vivian Ink - December 6, 2007
During a Brazilian Jujitsu sparing match I herniated a disc in my neck. I had pain, tingling and the doctor said if I did not have immediate surgery I would never regain the strength in my arm. Needless to say I was quite depressed. I was one week away from neck surgery when I discovered inversion therapy. Using the Teeter Hang Ups F7000 inversion table I was able to avoid surgery. I am now 100% recovered and play in three softball leagues in the bay area. It was not only your equipment but also your advice about how to use the inversion table for a cervical problem that was crucial to reversing my cervical disc problem. I feel so grateful for the amazing results achieved as a result using the inversion table and learning from the people at energycenter.com.

One example of the many testimonials about scoliosis we have received.
The pediatrician who had sent our daughter to the Scottish Rite hospital becasue she had a bit of a curvature in her spine, saw her for his referral last week. He was amazed at how straight her back was and asked her how she did it. She said that when she started using the inversion table, that in just a few months her shoulders were level and she had no more trouble will ill-fitting clothes due to one shoulder lower than the other - great, huh!?

Hello Energy Center,
I recently purchased and received the F7000 Teeter Inversion Table, awesome
product by the way, back pain has diminished greatly with just minutes a day!!!
Laura S. - Gurnee, Illinois - January 17,2008
I just want to say that I've been using the F7000 for a couple days now and I can feel the difference already in my back. I ordered the Gravity boots with the F7000 with some uncertainty of whether I would need them, but I'm very glad I did now. With the standard ankle locking mechanism on the F7000 set as recommended on my ankles, after several minutes being inverted my feet seemed to be lacking in circulation, which was immediately relieved when standing upright again, when the ankle mechanism released its pressure. I think that while inverted, the standard ankle locking device placed enough pressure on the arteries in my lower ankle/upper foot to impede circulation. So then I broke out the Gravity Boots and made the modification to the F7000 to accommodate the CV bar over which the boots hook while inverted. The gravity boots made a big difference. I'm having no more issues with impeded circulation and they are just very comfortable while hanging. I only do a 40 degree inversion so far, but it helps very much. I'm not sure if I will ever want to do a total inversion since its not really necessary to obtain the full benefit out of the inversion table. One minor problem I did call customer service about was the fact that the rectangular metal projection on the center of the cross bar on which the sliding main shaft rests was missing the plug that prevents the main shaft from banging on the metal of the cross bar. The customer service rep told me she is sending out a plug to me. Until then I placed some protective felt to eliminate the metal to metal contact. Just a minor quality control issue it seems. Everything else seems to be of excellent quality. I was very impressed with the speed of delivery also. The complementary LED flashlight also is quite nice to have. So this is my impression so far of the Teeter F7000.
Terry N. - 1-03-2008 - Wisconsin
Just want you to know that we absolutely LOVE our Teeter GL9500!
Couldn't be more pleased with it.
Victoria L. - 1-06-2008 - Florida
Thank you for the great service. If you were an e-Bay store I would give positive feedback!!
Alan R. - Maryland - 12-20-07
We've only been using our inversion table for a few days and love it. After about four days of inversion, I had to lower my car seat a bit because my head had gotten too close to the roof of the car! I shoveled snow the other day and had the least pain doing this task in 25 years. I just wish I had the machine at my office so I could do a couple of stretches during the day!
It was also a pleasure dealing with you and your company. Your pricing was fair, your deliver exceptionally prompt, and all the information you offered gave us a running (or lying?) start on using the machine correctly and effectively. I'd recommend you to anyone.
Tad Gage - 12-17-2007
I'm 80 years old and in good health. Since I started using the Hang Ups F7000 inversion table my energy has increased dramatically. I have a feeling it has to do with stretching the spine. I haven't felt this good in ages. I've been using the inversion table for over a month now. It is great to feel peppy again.
Virginia Bradley - Gold Beach Oregon - October 23, 2007
I purchased my inversion table at the Health and Wellness Fair in Seattle, WA. My massage therapist recommended I give it a try after a series of treatments with massage, acupuncture, chiropractic, epidural spinal injections and physical therapy. I received some relief from these therapies although I was still in a lot of pain and discomfort. I have been consistent in my use of the inversion table and it has brought me much needed relief.
Thank you so much,
Karen Johnson - October 12, 2007
P.S. I also share my table with my family. My daughter is a certified personal trainer and two sons one of whom is a state champion wrestler. He fractured his disc l-5 in three places and broke a femur bone last year and he has received relief and good stretching from the inversion table as well.
I am now 85 years old, retired from general surgery.
Have been using Hang Ups inversion machines with gravity boots for over 10 years. Most days I do sessions that include a lot of exercise. I am amazed at the amount of upper body and abdominal musculature I have developed after the age of 70, more than I ever had before, and I remain in good physical and mental health.
Harry Segal - Sydney, Australia - Feburary 2, 2006
The idea of elevating aching feet is not a novel one to me, but with the inversion table it takes on a whole new meaning; I can LITERALLY feel the pains and aches melting away. The inverted position relieves stress from my "compressed" joints and back and improves circulation in my feet (they used to be cold all the time - a classic sign of poor circulation). The first time I used it was the first time in a LONG time that I had a full night sleep, after stretching myself for just a half an hour on the inversion table. I woke up rested and I had NO stiff muscles or joints. Heck, I didn't even need coffee and aspirin that morning!!! In closing, I think the inversion table is a health savior. I strongly urge everyone to buy one.
M. Franczuk, London, Ont.
I have had serious back problems for forty years and was unaware of inversion tables until recently. Only two weeks ago, I thought I was going to be disabled, because I could hardly stand and because sitting only made the back pain worse. Now I feel almost normal. The inversion table makes me feel much better.
Thank you very much,
Eric Weinberger - 12-05-2006
I just can't tell you how much we LOVE our inversion table. My husband is in the military and often spends many days with 80-100 pounds of gear on his back while training and loves to come home and relieve a lot of physical stress on the table. I myself have had back problems for 17 years with crushed discs - had surgery last year and I LOVE the relief I get from the table. I am currently using it in conjunction with an orthopedic surgeon - he is a bit old school and doesn't quite understand the benefits I get from the table. I had tingling and numbing also in my chest skin and in my fingers...it has since disappeared. Not to mention the flexibility increased in my entire spine. Often times I can have a good stretch and don't need the muscle relaxants - it's good for strengthening the ab muscles while I am on the table. I want you to know that I feel completely confident that we made the best choice in choosing this table over the competitors. The ankle clamps are extremely comfortable and the structural integrity of the table is light, convenient and comfortable while making the bed feel sturdy and the balance is great. I can't say enough about how great it is. I am a stay home mom and use it everyday several times. Pass the good word along that you have a great quality product and it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Kim Helwigs - July 4, 2001
P.S. Feel free to use this as a true testimonial.
My mother has a slant board and gets on it every day. She is in her late 70's and is the picture of health. There must be something to this inversion therapy.
You have my permission to use my testimonial anywhere and anytime! I am very pleased also with the friendliness and customer service you have shown. I ordered my Hang Ups Inversion table on Wed., and have just received it Friday only two later.
Thanks for everything.
Toby Thomas - October 12, 2005
I have been meaning to write to you for a long time to tell you how pleased I am with the results of using the inversion table. At the age of 71 doctors wanted to do a triple laminectomy on my spine. The surgery was to be on L2,3 and 4. I was told the healing process after the surgery would take about six months. I went to another doctor and his opinion was that I would never walk again if I had the surgery. I was in intense pain at the time rated at 10+.
After being advised to try an inversion table I called your company and was very pleased with our conservation. I received the table in December of 2002 and have been using it on a regular basis since. I am very happy with the results. I still have some pain but it is quite tolerable compared with the suffering I was going through before I started inversion therapy.
Thank you for your excellent product and your assistance.
Roberta Schauman - June 6, 2005
We have our table and was so surprised how fast it got here. Want to THANK YOU SO MUCH. My husband is doing better already!!! I have always enjoyed the one I use to have years ago. So it is great to have a new one. I sure will tell everyone about you. And your friendly service!!!
Judie and Dave H.
I'm just writing to say how completely happy I am that I bought your F5000 Inversion Table. I was having severe problems with my back. A trip to the Dr. and ultimately an MRI revealed I had severe calcium deposits (from arthritis) built up around my sciatic nerve. This resulted in my having to walk bent over just to slightly reduce the severe pain I was experiencing starting at the buttocks and going all the way down to my ankles. I was really depressed when my orthopedic Dr. was recommending I see a spinal surgeon. After having surgery for both 2 hips and 2 knee replacements I was not exactly enthused about the prospect of back surgery. I told the Dr. I wasn't ready for that option just yet cause my wife had seen an article on Inversion Tables and how they can help people with herniated discs and sciatic problems. I was skeptical but when I saw your free trial offer, I figured what have I got to lose, so I bought the F5000 Inversion Table. At first I didn't think it helped, however after just 2 weeks use I could walk upright again and have very little to no pain any longer. Don't know how long this table will help me, but each day I can put off back surgery I'm thankful for.
Feel free to use this testimonial.
I'm thankful I listened to my wife and decided to try this table.
John A. Tisevich - August 3, 2003
P.S. Also those free bongers are great when I have tightness in my upper back. My wife "bongs" me for about 10 minutes and that helps to loosen up the back muscles.
I wanted to let you know that I have had marvelous benefits in the short time of only two weeks I have been using the inversion table. I purchased it for my low back pain which now feels much much better. However, I was very surprised when what we thought was a rotator cuff injury that might require surgery was also benefited by using the table. It must have been a pinched nerve that was relived by the inversion therapy. I am very happy to say I am back to an active life & golfing 4-5 days a week.
Scott P. July 15, 2003
I don't know if you remember me but, I purchased a F5000 table and boots. We talked on the phone for quite a while and I told you that I would give you a testimonial if it worked. WELL IT DID!!!! IT WORKS!!!! It just makes too much sense not to work. I could hardly function everyday was painful, my sciatic pain was crippling. After 2 weeks I felt wonderful, so I helped a friend to move who is aware of my past back problems and surgery, I did not do much or pick up anything of weight. The next day I hurt very bad, so I continued "hanging" and after a week I was much better. After 2 months now, I feel better than I ever did after my back surgery. I now believe that had I had this inversion table I would have never needed back surgery. The rocking motion seems to work best for me.
If you want me tell anyone about my experience have them contact me.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Chris M. - Wed, Feb 26, 2003
I would like to tell you how pleased I am with the results I have received since purchasing the gravity table from you. As we discussed on the phone I have been on permanent disability from my job at Federal Express. Due to the compressed nerves in my back and neck the doctors told me I would never be able to go back to work. The pain and tingling in my arm and hand have been debilitating for nearly two years. I appreciate your advice about checking with my doctor and starting out at a very mild angle. I also appreciate your return policy which allowed me to feel secure in knowing if I did not benefit from the table I could return it. I have excellent news to share with you. After using the table for three weeks I will be starting work again on Monday. The pain and tingling is nearly completely gone and even though I started to receive benefits within two days of using the table I did not think the inversion therapy would help me so much and allow me to return to a normal life again. I have still not even gone to more than 30 degrees. Besides the reduction of my pain I love the stress reducing & relaxing effect it has on me.
My sincere thanks and appreciation,
Ten years ago my brother had spinal fusion surgery. He did receive some reduction of pain but within a year his back problem was worse than before the surgery. He purchased a table from your store in Los Angeles. Recently I also was advised to have spinal fusion surgery. I visited my brother and took his advice and tried his Backswing. He told me he wished he had not had his surgery and had discovered the Backswing many years ago. I tried his table and decided to purchase one for myself. That was six months ago and I must say I do not believe I will require spinal fusion surgery and am extremely happy with the results I have achieved. I appreciate you assisting my brother and I to live a more pain free life.
Dr. Nathaniel Wirt, D.C.
Hanging a few minutes everyday made my back stronger and eventually all the pain disappeared! My back became stronger than it had ever been. I began exercising, including walking and jogging, with no back strains resulting. Today I am 55 years old, my posture is good, and I am healed. The daily inversion stimulated postural and circulatory changes in my body. Better posture was practiced, (standing straighter with thighs tightened and shoulders back). This caused my abdomen to flatten out- no sit-ups or crunches. Other physical changes occurred: My complexion improved and wrinkles and fleshy parts of my face and neck diminished!"
When inversion is coupled with posture and toning exercises, internal organs assume their proper position. For example, from left to right, the spleen, stomach, pancreas, liver, and gall bladder are supposed to rest just under the diaphragm and "move" with every breath. When organs are not in their best physiological position, these membranes are compromised, effecting nerve and blood flow.
Dr. Robert Bouvier, MD
We have found significant improvement using various inversion techniques which needs further exploration. However, we are very excited about the results thus far. After two weeks on the inversion table on a daily basis urinary incontinence disappeared in two female patients. We have used the inversion table on chronic bronchitis as well as asthmatics.
Dr. John Huber, D.C.
I have been using your inversion products in my chiropractic office for the past 14 years. Your inversion equipment is the best on the market, and my patients have benefited greatly from their inversion therapy.
After using Hang Ups Inversion Equipment , I have noticed an amazing change in my flexibility, after only a few weeks of use. My golf game is much improved due to greater shoulder mobility. I whole-heartedly attest to the benefits of this product.
With the F5000III I noticed a remarkable improvement in my posture and my walk. Before using the inversion table I had muscle spasms and back problems.
Inverting daily keeps my body stretched, relaxed, symmetrical. The adult acne that I've had since the age of 29 has nearly disappeared. The cold hands and feet that I have experienced for years has disappeared.
In 1982 I started inverting. I was 52 years old then, and over the years I managed to change just about everything; everything from a badly misaligned hip, feet with corns and a walk with a limp to bad tarter on my teeth. Yes, it changed that too!
John Matalamaki, motorcycle racer.
As a long time motorcycle racer with a chronic bad back, I've been very impressed with pain relief I've gotten with the daily use of Hang Ups Inversion Table. It is the best rehabilitation and maintenance device I have ever used.
Donald Myrah, mountain bike racer.
In the past I have often had problems with my lower back tightening on training rides and during races. After using your the Hang Ups Inversion Table, I do not have the problem with my lower back tightening as before.
Rick Maisel, Active Athlete
I have found that 100 upside down sit-ups are equal to 1000 regular sit-ups (with less strain on the back).
Mike Sandber, Skydiver
Getting inverted relieves and relaxes not only my joints and vertebrae but lets my organs and blood flow more naturally. Being inverted at least 30 minutes a day improves my performance capability by stimulating my vestibular system and allows decompression of my spine to occur.
Jim Whitesel, Seattle Seahawks Football Team Trainer
Professional football places a great deal of stress to the lumbar sacral area of the spine. Inversion assisted stretching is quite beneficial.
Dr. W G W, Chief Department of Surgery
I would like to report to you that I have had extraordinary success in patients using inversion. Its essential value is the ability of the patient to prevent the onset of a more irreversible symptom complex by having the device available.
Derek Snow, Birmingham, AL
I've made a lot of purchases for gym accessories, but never have I been as pleased or excited about a product as yours.
JF Sylar, West Jordan, UT
Thank you for producing a quality product that more people could benefit from if they were aware of its benefits.
Ron & Elizabeth Dutcher
Thanks again for such a well-made and well-conceived piece of health-giving equipment.
Bob Sherin, Miami, FL
From its simplicity and durability, the expertise put into the design of Hang Ups is manifest. I can say in all honesty that your product has markedly improved the quality of my life.
I'm enjoying your very well-made machine. After working out I reward myself with lying on the inversion table for a few minutes.
Brenda and George Hone, Nanaimo, BC
When our Inversion table arrived, we were blown away by the obvious quality. This is a well-built piece of equipment. We recommend the inversion table to anyone who will listen. We wouldn't want to be without it every again. All in all, buying and using the table has been a positive experience. Thank you.
Paul Dolan, Sayville, NY
It was a pleasure to purchase something that didn't take all day to put together and is solidly built to boot. Assembly was a snap! Thanks again.
John S. Huber, D.C., Kent, WA
Thanks again for 14 years [now 18] of quality service. Safe, affordable, and effective products like yours are what we need in the health profession.
Chris L. Harrison, D.C., Vestavia Hills, AL
I really have a hard time expressing in words how happy I am that you have engineered your products in the way that you have. Right now, I will settle for thank you, thank you, thank you.
I have been using my inversion table for the last 3 weeks. On the first day I started at a 30 degree angle. I have now moved on to a 60 degree angle. I feel great!
Let me tell you a little about my health. I suffered 2 herniated discs in my neck from an auto accident about 6 years ago. When it rains and it is damp or during the winter months, I constantly feel pain. I refuse to take any type of mind altering medication or any oral medication at all. I am only able to use the table during to weekend for I am away from home during the week. I use it at least 3 days a week once or twice a day.
Here's the good part. When I received the table I set it up as per the instructions. I set it up for a 30 degree angle. I stayed on the table for twenty minutes. I relaxed and then did minor movement. I did feel my back sort of liked crack. As though when you stretch and your bones crack. I find that normal. I moved my neck around and that also cracked. I was scared at first. But I began to feel a relief. When I got off of the table I felt a little dizzy but that is normal and I was not alarmed at all. After moving around I felt so good.
More good news coming. I used the table that one day (Tuesday) and I would not be able to use it until Friday. Well we had a lot of rain those next few days and I did not feel any pain at all. I just felt great. I only used it ONE DAY and it lasted until that Friday when I got home from work. And do you know, the first thing I did when I got home was spend 20 minutes on my table. It is now a ritual for me when I come home from work. TABLE FIRST-FOOD SECOND. (hehe)
My wife also suffered a herniated disc on her lower back. She wouldn't go on the table. But after 3 weeks of just a few days therapy she is very convinced about what it has done for me. She sees it now because I don't complain of the pain anymore. She is starting a therapy secession for herself every day at 30 degrees.
In closing I would just like to say, "THANK YOU." And jokingly I told my wife, if ever lost everything I own in my life. The first thing I would invest in is another table.

I think the STL inversion equipment is an invaluable tool in back rehabilitation. My physician recommended the use of your inversion table three times daily as part of an active course of physical therapy I noticed results almost immediately. My back injuries have almost completely healed.
