How Toning Tables Began

Toning Tables History

The first "Toning Tables" were invented and patented by Bernard H. Stauffer, a bio chemist, and Dr. M. Wilson in California during the polio epidemic of the 1930- 1950 era. Stauffer's sister, Sally, was confined to a wheelchair by polio. She proved the tables' effectiveness by becoming independent of the wheelchair after using the exercise tables.

He and Sally opened a salon in Los Angeles. His idea was to develop muscle tone and improve posture without clients having to work at it. His first patrons came to relieve sore muscles in their hips, back and legs. Much to their delight they soon began to lose inches off their thighs, stomach, hips and arms as well. Immediate results were seen because of the postural changes that occurred in the first few treatments.
