Long ago, it
was proposed that the best way to rehabilitate you
after a long workday was standing upside down.
Theoretically, it is rational. After a whole day of
fully occupied work, all the internal organs are
drooping to a certain extent. One will feel a
backache, in addition to the blood and lymph being
detained in lower limbs and the lower lumbar and back
upside down, the internal organs reverse to the
original position. The returning circulation of
blood and lymph will accelerate, while the
stagnation in the lower part is reduced. Furthermore
after standing upside down, the blood supply in the
brain is increased, so one feels a clearer mind and
the fatigue disappears. The problem is, people do
not feel encouraged about standing upside down!
mimicking fish in reality is a kind of 'swimming
on land'. The floor or mattress instead of water,
will support the entire body. In such case, the
oxygen consumption and activity are reduced.
If your legs
are lying on a machine rhythmically swinging left
and right, this will bring about the relaxation
and relocation of joints and muscles of your
entire body. With the action of the left/right
movement a couple times a day, all those after
effects due to over fatigue and long term chronic
weakness will recover the relevant organs to the
original anatomical position.
Many massage therapists often end a
massage session by holding the ankles of their
client, and swinging the legs back and forth, from
left to right.
Human ligaments may
be compared to the rubber band, after stretching for
a long time; they'll never regain their original
elasticity and tenacity. 'Swimming on land' can
recover the original nature of the ligaments, so
that they can support the internal organs as before.
Blood and lymph
fluid carry out the action of transport corps for
metabolism; nutrients and oxygen are carried to
every corner of the body, from where wastes are
removed, eventually being excreted through urination
transportation is pushed through the rhythm of
cardiac movement, and is further promoted by
rhythmical muscular contraction and returning back
venous blood and lymph fluid. We then feel relaxed
and at ease, this is why after doing this exercise
one can sleep soundly.

is most appropriate for those with health
challenges who are unable to do physical
training. This form of exercise is the fittest
rehabilitation and health care measure today due
to the benefits it produces, with no risk of
injury and no stress to the heart, spine or
