kybun®@Mayr – relieve stress and back pain - Park Igls



Lacking firm ground under your feet feels strange, but kybun® uses this unfamiliar sensation to help reduce stress and back problems, relieve pain, realign the body, enhance concentration and burn off calories. At Park Igls Mayr clinic, this revolutionary exercise concept helps guests to explore new avenues – one step at a time.

100 years ago, people walked 10 miles a day on average. Today this has shrunk to less than half a mile. The consequences are commonplace: back problems, obesity, cardiovascular complaints… To counter these lifestyle disorders, the inventor of MBT shoes Karl Müller developed kybun® – ‘kybun’ is a Korean word that roughly translates as ‘good feeling’. The exercises make use of soft, springy mats and ‘unstable’ kybun® shoes that force the body to be in constant movement. As a result, deep tissues are activated and strengthened – as are concentration and balance.

When is kybun® helpful?

kybun® makes life easier and can help prevent muscular deficiencies and joint problems. The kybun® shoes used alongside conventional therapies are helpful in treating a wide range of medical complaints:
