GYROTONIC® is a new, unique exercise method which takes a holistic approach to fitness and health, focusing on the whole being.
Unlike other exercise machines, where the body is limited to linear motions, GYROTONIC® allows and promotes a natural three-dimensional movement of the body.
The handcrafted equipment allows total freedom of movement and can be adjusted to suit anybody's weight, strength, and level of fitness.
This exercise system stretches, strengthens, and elongates muscles without joint compression.
How dose it work?
This exercise system simultaneously stretches, strengthens, and elongates muscles without joint compression, while increasing flexibility and developing coordination and control. GYROTONIC® releases tension held in the muscles and gently eases stress. This methodology works systematically, gently and fluidly with joints, spine, and muscles. It incorporates fundamental principles of yoga, gymnastics, ballet, swimming, and tai-chi.
Internally, GYROTONIC® exercises stimulate organs through movement of the diaphragm (through breathing exercises) and rhythmic spinal movement in all possible directions. Each movement is accompanied by a specific breathing pattern which enhances circulation of blood and oxygen, improves cardiovascular strength, and increases metabolism. The breathing patterns are synchronized with the movements to increase aerobic stimulation and promote neuromuscular rejuvenation. GYROTONIC® develops a better awareness of breathing habits, which clears toxins and revitalizes all the major systems in the body.
The circular and spiral movements of GYROTONIC® imitate our internal and external energy pathways, which results in energizing body systems, and timulating and strengthening the meridian flow. This helps to develop a powerful strength from within and an improved sense of well-being. GYROTONIC® is suitable for people of all age groups and fitness levels, as well as those recovering from injuries or suffering from chronic illnesses. This system is ideal for men, women, children, seniors, athletes, dancers, and anybody who is seeking health, equilibrium, fitness, stamina, strength, and flexibility.
GYROTONIC® is suitable for people of all age groups and fitness levels.

Can GYROTONIC® be used during my physical therapy session?
Yes, it can. In our office, we incorporate GYROTONIC® in the physical therapy sessions on a regular basis. We use GYROTONIC® for treating a variety of surgical as well as non-surgical physical conditions, such as rotator cuff repair, total knee/ hip replacement, scoliosis, cervical and neck pain, shoulder pain, bursitis, balance and coordination problems, and more.
Unlike other exercise machines in physical therapy offices, GYROTONIC® promotes fully functional physical performance. In other words,the body will be trained in its natural and physiological way, a three-dimensional way.
Resistance, desired range of motion, speed and rhythm are all elements of great importance during a physical therapy session. GYROTONIC allows the users to adjust these features entirely. That is why we use GYROTONIC® even for treating patients with very acute conditions and after surgery. Our therapists are certified and trained in GYROTONIC® and incorporate this system in physical therapy sessions.
Does my health insurance plan cover GYROTONIC®?
Our office is contracted with most health insurance companies. We will send the claims to your health insurance company. If we accept your health plan, depending on your health benefits, and eligibilities, your sessions will most probably be covered. For your convenience, we will contact your health insurance company and verify your coverage.
