Learn More About This Service
Gravity Bed was designed by the naturopath Lydia Sébastien. Inspired by classic principles of health, she developed and taught a "rejuvenating exercise" method. She managed to get some proof of the effectiveness of her exercises, which focused on having individuals make swinging movements. Thus, in keeping with her overall concept of health, Sébastien designed her "Balancelle" or swinging bed, which produces a slow, rocking movement, moving fluids from head to toe. It is therefore a natural rocking back and forth, which allows better circulation of fluids. Since fluids often get congested in different areas of the body, this facilitates well-being. Indeed, like our dear planet, which consists largely of various forms of water, about two-thirds of our body is made up of organic fluids, or about 40 liters per person: 5 liters of blood, 5-6 liters of circulating lymph, 4-5 of non-channeled lymph, and 28 of intracellular serum.
The Gravity Bed is for anyone who wants to gain vitality or better sleep quality, athletes, sedentary people, and children over the age of 10. Gravity Bed sessions are also recommended especially for people whose work is stressful or requires concentration, as well as individuals suffering from insomnia, hyperactive people, and those who have been bedridden for a long time. All of these individuals will be able to regain lost vitality. In fact, many bodily functions benefit from Gravity Bed, such as circulation and digestion, along with the nervous system, joints, the spine, etc. Also, within a few months, Gravity Flow can help free tissue from bulky metabolic waste (organic acids, bad cholesterol, urea, lipofuscin pigments linked to aging, neural waste, etc.).
Duration of sessions
The duration of the sessions should gradually increase as the user becomes comfortable with it, from 5 to 7 minutes at the start to 30 minutes when used for wellness applications. Session length will vary from person to person, in consultation with Origin Wellness staff. You should always feel calm and harmonious when doing Gravity Bed. If at any point you wish to stop, there is an easily accessible switch that stops the machine. But, if you happen to doze off (not uncommon!), you will be kindly "brought back to earth" by a staff member when your time is up.

Since our body is made up of almost 70% liquids, you can think of Gravity Bed like an internal rejuvenating bath at a biological level: it's highly relaxing and simple: just lie down and let yourself be rocked back and forth! It's interesting to note that the universal force of gravity is the invisible ally of this service, bringing the whole body to adapt to changes in orientation because of this constant force. So, in addition to the hydrovitality effect, we are placed in a great union with the universe during the 30-minute session, and this will last for many hours or even days, bringing an inestimable overall benefit. Of course, remember that this should not replace regular physical exercise or medical treatment.
