Always consult a medical professional before beginning any ropes or yoga practice & research the possible risks, such as nerve damage, circulatory damage, rope marks, suspension drops, & positional asphyxia. It is up to the individual to gauge the safety of their practice within their own physical limitations. The techniques discussed on this website are not a substitute for medical advice. If at any point you feel faint, dizzy, or lightheaded, stop immediately. If at any point during your practice you feel numbness, tingling, burning or coldness, that could indicate signs of nerve damage or circulatory issues & you should tell your rope top so they may adjust or remove the tie. If you are injured, it’s highly recommended that you seek professional medical attention. LCF Writing Services & Learning to Fly with Tangled Wings assume no responsibility for injuries suffered while practicing these techniques.
