The feeling of weightlessness created by swinging is exciting and exhilarating and has been proven to increase energy levels and reduce physical stress. Paul Jameson at The Outdoor Toy Company explains, “There are many emotional and physical benefits associated with swinging whether it is to help a child from as early as six months with eye development, focus, coordination and balance, or whether it is to increase concentration, ease neck and back pain, help with meditation, burn calories or engage muscle groups in adults, swinging really can be beneficial for anyone”.
