GYROTONIC® exercise is designed to take the body beyond its current limitations. The exercises utilizing the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® are designed to include the whole body as well as influence the central nervous system.
Movement patterns done on the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® are done progressively and are therefore able to accommodate all body types and strength levels. The GYROTONIC® training method stretches, strengthens and elongates muscles, stimulating connective tissue in and around the joints and improving balance, coordination, strength and flexibility.
Benefits of Gyrotonic®
- Decrease pain associated with joint compression and arthritic/degenerative changes.
- Produce joint articulation without joint compression.
- Mobilize the nervous system (relieve pain related to neural entrapment syndromes, i.e. thoracic outlet/inlet, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.)
- Facilitate timing, rhythm and coordination with sport specific training patterns.
- Improve efficiency and ease of movement by coordinating the firing patterns of the antagonist and agonist muscle groups.
- Stimulate circulation and alleviate stress.
- Prepare for pregnancy, relieve pain associated with pregnancy, re-educate the body for natural and healthy movement patterns following pregnancy.
- Improve your golf game by improving pelvic mobility and eliminating faulty movement patterns in the associated muscles.
- Decrease chronic pain by improving overall flexibility and allowing chronic, faulty movement patterns to be replaced with healthy, pain-free patterns.
