Bernard Jensen, DC, discovered the great health effects of slanting in 1933. He "found one
of the greatest means of correcting our health problems and maintaining a healthy body". Inversion of the body relieves stress
and fatigue by taking pressure off the body's organs by allowing them to shift into a more natural placement. This reduces
the internal stresses on our bodies, and increases and strengthens our ability to cope with the emotional responses of our
bodies to external stresses.
Most Inversion Therapy involves a significant change in the bodies position. Frequently
requiring the assumption of an often uncomfortable position. However, the Slant Board enables one to receive the benefits
of Inversion Therapy without the discomfort. As we spend 75% of our lives in an upright position, time spent on a Slant board
allows the body to experience relief from the daily patterns of compression and pull to the organs, muscles, blood flow, and
oxygen distribution throughout the body.
It's great in case of prolapsus of the abdominal organs and regenerating the vital nerve centres
of the brain. When there is lack of tone in the muscles we can expect prolapsus of the abdominal organs. The heart, lacking
tone, cannot circulate blood properly throughout the body. Likewise, arteries and veins cannot contract to help the blood
against gravity into the brain tissues.
There are some people who apparently have tried everything to get well, who
still find all organs working under par. Many people do not realize that all the quickening force for every organ of the body
comes from the brain. People whose occupations require them to sit or stand continually are unable to get the blood into the
brain tissues because the tired organs cannot force the blood uphill. If we deny the brain tissues good blood in the proper
amount, in time, every organ of our body will suffer.
The heart gets its start from the brain and continues its everlasting
pumping because of it. No organ can do without the brain. Dr. Jensen attributes the success of his healing work to the very
fact that he definitely recognizes that the brain must be fed properly. Slanting board exercises are absolutely necessary
to regaining perfect health.
The reports are phenomenal as to what can be done in cases of prolapsus and lack of tone
in the abdominal walls. A Mr. C.M. Pierce, who became interested in this form of exercise, has done wonders in rejuvenating
his body. Dr. Jensen quotes from Health News of September 26, 1941: "One night three years ago, I saw Dr. Jensen demonstrate
the slanting board and instantly saw how to make my system much easier, and on the way home I told my neighbor, 'I am going
to make a board like that." Since then he has made many, selling them throughout the country. In fact, Mr. Pierce, who was
born October 11, 1866, is still active in his business. (Mr. Pierce works through Bernard Jensen's
Slanting board exercises are especially good in cases of inflammations and congestions above the
shoulders, such as sinus trouble, bad eyes, falling hair, head eczema, ear conditions and similar troubles. Slanting board
exercise is needed and has helped more than any other treatment in cases of heart trouble, fatigue, dizziness, poor memory
There are many cases where the board is contra-indicated. It is best in most cases to get professional
advice, for some people have had unhappy experiences due to the very fact they started too strenuous a program to begin with.
If you haven't done much exercising of the abdominal muscles, it is well to take these exercises slowly and gradually increase
them as you get stronger.
Do not use the board in cases of high blood pressure, hemorrhages, some tubercular conditions,
cancer in the pelvic cavity, appendicitis, ulcers of the stomach or intestines, pregnancy, unless under the care of a physician.
The slanting board exercises are practically the same as any other lying-down exercises. The most
important exercise is to hold on to the sides of the board bringing the knees up to the chest. This forces all the abdominal
organs up towards the shoulders. While in this position, twist the head from side to side and in all directions, thus utilizing
the extra force to circulate blood to congested areas of the head, especially bringing the stomach and abdominal organs up
towards the chest while holding the breath.
The average person should maintain the food end of the board at chair
height for all exercises, but if dizzy at first, the foot end of the board should not be raised quite so high to begin with.
Exercise only five minutes a day. More time than that is too much. Gradually increase time spend on the board. The average
client should lie on the board ten minutes at 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon and again just before going to bed. After retiring,
life the buttocks up to allow the organs to return to a normal position.
Exercises strengthen and tone the muscles,
helping you to look better and feel younger. To increase the benefits of Slant Boarding, you can develop your own exercise
routines or use the exercises suggested by Dr. Jensen
