Information on therapeutic use

Abroad, in Germany and the US in particular, GYROTONIC® is considered to be a genuine therapy and is often supervised by physiotherapists.

Like Pilates, GYROTONIC® is recommended by osteopaths, physiotherapists and trauma specialists. It is a sports training method that is based on overall postural rehabilitation. It is particularly beneficial when used to treat various illnesses. GYROTONIC® exercises respect the body’s biomechanics through movement. Little by little, with both suitable breathing and pace, you will strengthen and organically stretch all ligaments, tendons and muscles, and free up joints.

In France, legislation does not allow certified trainers to consider the method as a medical treatment. If you are suffering from an acute problem, we would advise you to see your doctor or your physiotherapist before coming to the studio. Afterwards, we would be happy to work on the sporting approach, respecting any advice given by your specialist.

Poor basic posture – the so-called ‘desk’ position

Demands of the modern world with computers force us to remain seated for long periods of time, which often contributes to poor posture, lumbar pain and reoccurring micro traumas. The GYROTONIC® exercise method makes us more aware of our posture and helps to ease tension in the whole body.

It is important to have the right balance between the pelvis and the shoulders in order for the spinal column to remain inline. This balance is at the heart of the method. The basic principles of each exercise encourage stretching and the spine’s natural movements, while providing better stability in the pelvis, the shoulders and the neck. Those who follow the method progressively realign their posture.

Specific programs have been pioneered and developed by Paul Horvath, Juliu’s brother, a physiotherapist and osteopath. They are gentle, gradual and suitable for everyone.

Pregnancy

GYROTONIC® is an ideal exercise during and after pregnancy because it relieves pain in the lower back and helps digestion, at the same times as helping the body to regain energy and fight against fatigue.

Recovery following an injury or an operation

This gentle program to correct your posture is often recommended by doctors, osteopaths and physiotherapists to reconstruct muscles and regain strength after surgery, injury, or stress that has accumulated over the years. We start by doing exercises without weights to gently prepare the area that has been injured for right level of resistance, creating both simulation and support. Special sessions with specific support from a trainer ensure that the customer is always exercising safely.

If you are suffering from an acute problem, we would advise you to see your doctor or your physiotherapist before coming to the studio. Afterwards, we would be happy to work on the sporting approach, respecting any advice given by your specialist.
