My dh uses and inversion table for a herniated disk in his neck and to help his disks in general. It has helped tremendously for the pain he was having in his neck and shoulder.

I was wondering if anyone ever has heard if inversion is helpful to wrinkles. I found some info on the net but not a lot. It would make sense to me but I don't know if it would be enough (I think the longest is about 10-15 minutes a day) time inverted to make a difference.

Any ideas?

I'm glad to hear that the inversion table is helping your dh.

I was thinking of getting one to help with spinal problems but a personal trainer wasn't impressed with the equipment and mentioned he knew of people who harmed themselves by not using it properly.

Using the inverstion table for wrinkles? I don't know other than the blood flow to your head/face might help. If you have an instruction booklet-- look up the information there or call the manufacturer.

I wish I had one, but I also have read bad reviews especially on the cheap one, it seems you have to pay more than $300 'cause the $150 you may hurt yourself. I would make sure I'm not alone when I get on the rack! I would probably get dizy and will not be able to get out of this. In yoga, the position called candle, should keep your face young, my yoga teacher was 80 and looked like 60. Saddly she had a stroke few years ago, I miss her very much!

Gee, I hope the candle position didn't hasten the stroke! Probably not a good idea if a person has hypertension, cardiac probs, migraine, or other serious medical conditions.

She tought yoga for over 40 years, if it was the yoga, she would have had a stroke before that. I know she loved desserts though. As I always say, you have to die of something someday!
I only know that you should avoid this position when you are having your period.

The instructor when I became a certified personal trainer told us how he got one for cheap. Apparently the original owner, a man in his late 50's, purchased it to help with some sort of joint pain or something. Anyways, the guy kept this thing in his garage. He went on it and was upside down. You do need a fair bit of abdominal strenght to get back up and he wasn't able to. He wasn't able to get out and passed out after a while.

Hahaha.
