Swings & Health

Swing your way to good health

Swinging on a hammock is not just fun and exciting, but also has a host of health benefits!

A swinging hammock chair helps reduce stress levels and increase concentration. The comfort, support, near weightlessness and gentle swaying calms the nervous system and is particularly helpful for people with Sensory Integration Disorders. The swaying motion also acts as an external pumping mechanism, increasing the rate of flow within the Lymphatic System - helping you feel relaxed and fresh.

Hanging your swing in a balcony or open space will help you get your daily dose of Vitamin D for as little as 10 to 20 minutes per day!

Swings for Children

Swinging is a suitable exercise for children - right from the time the neck is strong enough (approximately 6 months)!

Swing your baby gently in the beginning to get them used to swinging and not frighten them. Swinging is not only very soothing and relaxing for your baby, but there are many benefits too!

Eye Development

Swinging is an excellent exercise for baby's eyes. As the baby moves back and forth in a swing, the depth of focus keeps changing - thereby helping the eyes focus.


Eyes and ears are crucial for balance. When swinging, it is not just the eyes that are trained and exercised but the fluid in the inner ear is also constantly swirling back and forth, which is great for the development of balance.


Children can swing by themselves from the time they are about 4 years old. Swinging is very good for learning and training full body coordination.


The soothing motion of swinging relaxes, soothes and also increases the ability to concentrate. Children who find it difficult to focus on tasks such as mathematics or reading, often find it much easier to be able to concentrate when they are sitting in a hammock swing!

Hammock for Autism or Asperger's Syndrome

It has been found that children with autism actually learn better while swinging and retain more information. Your child may have less anxiety, improved behavior, and be more focused. If taught while swinging, the sensory input has been found to aid in improved eye contact, response and speech skills.

Sensory integration therapy often includes swinging which improves fine motor skills including balance, touch, and a means to better manage his or her body in space and awareness of the body position.

Autistic or not, your child will love the feeling of relaxing in a hammock or swing!

A word of caution:

Falling, Swinging and Strangulation Hazard!

Hammocks and Swings can be unstable and may cause serious injury if caution is not used appropriately. Be careful while entering, exiting and/or swinging in your hammock or swing as injury may result. Children can become entangled in hammock strings. Do not leave children unattended in a hammock or swing.
