Gyrotonic® and Gyrokinesis®
in physiotherapy

Gyrotonic – a unique, highly versatile movement system that is based on specially developed training equipment – is ideally suited for use in physiotherapy practice. Gyrokinesis is a training method derived from Gyrotonic which is practiced without equipment and has also been designed for therapeutic applications.

Gyrotonic was developed by the former ballet dancer Juliu Horvath. After a spinal injury, he created this unique training concept, which combines therapeutic principles with elements of yoga, dance and Tai Chi.

Starting from the spine, the exercises involve the entire musculoskeletal system. In this way, not only are the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues stimulated, but also the nervous system, endocrine system and internal organs. Flowing movements and rhythmic breathing patterns specifically activate the body’s meridians, facilitate the flow of energy and awaken the body’s regenerative powers.

This training method can be applied particularly smoothly and gently in therapeutic application. The movements are performed in a fluid, three-dimensional manner and are always supported and stabilized by equipment or a therapist.

Good to know: Fascia training

Fascia training is being regularly talked about at the moment, and not just in fitness and health media. Of course, it is well known that trends come and go in this field, but the methodology is based on a sound approach. The fascial tissue (fascia is the Latin for “bundle") is the collagenous connective tissue network, a net-like structure which gives the body its shape and elasticity, provided it is kept stable and flexible. This is exactly what fascia training aims to do. Among other things, it typically involves the entire body and uses expansive, flowing movements which emanate from the center of the body. It is no coincidence that these are also characteristics of the Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis training systems, which remain in keeping with the inventor’s theory.
