Nah mate it's because I'm only half done... I leave it up to the individual to decide whether it's the good half or the bad half - opinions do vary

Hanging by arms only leaves your lumbar vertebrae in tension and then that's only weighted by your legs.

Hanging by your arms leaves your mid and upper vertebrae in a complex tie up with your ribs and shoulders.

Need to hang by your skull to get spine in tension.
That may help my C6 to C7 compressed nerve.
Might be safer to hang from your ankles rather than your skull

Some people do-indeed hang from their skull:
That may even make them taller;- by a neck.

That Which Doesn't Change... Stays The Same.
Those That Don't Fall... Just Aren't Trying Hard Enough.
