WHAT IS PRESSOTHERAPY?

FULL BODY COMPRESSION LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

How much does pressotherapy cost?
A typical session will last for 30 to 45 minutes. Your body may feel light afterward, and anecdotally, some people feel they have to urinate right away, which could be due to the movement of water in the body. You can get pressotherapy done as often as twice a week.

Compression Therapy [Pressotherapy] is known to stimulate the lymphatic system to keep toxins flowing out of your body and help in the reduction of swelling, bruising, inflammation and pain.

Our process gently squeezes the legs and arms, which improves the blood flow and lymphatic flow, which facilitates the removal of waste and swelling, from the body. The combined services open the lymph pathways and activates the lymph system to remove toxins at a cellular level from the body.

There is some evidence that lymphatic drainage massage like pressotherapy can reduce the appearance of cellulite and release fluid in the lymph nodes which may build up after surgery or after certain cancer treatments.

This article will cover what you can expect during pressotherapy, who is a good candidate for the treatment, the benefits and side effects, and what you can expect it to cost.

HOW IT WORKS?

Pressotherapy is similar to a lymphatic drainage massage, but while massage is performed by hand, pressotherapy is administered by a machine that dispenses the correct amount of pressure every time.
Pressotherapy uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit that squeezes the arms, legs, or abdomen in a rhythmic motion, similar to a massage. This removes excess fluid and stimulates the body's lymphatic system.

 

Compression therapy has many benefits. 
Our full body compression therapy service decreases venous pressure, reduces edema, and aids the body in moving blood towards the heart. This process is known as the “lymphatic flush”. Utilizing the Power Plate technology prior to the compression therapy helps the body eliminate the toxins even faster.

Benefits Include: prevention of leg swelling for people who are sedentary, stand or sit for long periods of time.

TREATMENT BENEFITS
The treatment can reduce cellulite and volume in the abdomen, upper arms, buttocks, and legs — areas that are often affected by water retention! This treatment is most efficient before starting body shaping treatments and those interested in detoxing, this can get you slimmed down with a couple of sessions and serves as a beginning base.

Pressotherapy side effects
Pressotherapy is generally considered safe, though there are some side effects you should know about, including muscle pain if the pressure on the machine is too high and redness or slight irritation where the pressurized garments meet the skin.

When to avoid pressotherapy
Pressotherapy is generally considered safe for adults of all ages. However, if you’re pregnant, have recently had surgery, or have other health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, or fever, always talk to a doctor before getting pressotherapy. If you’ve recently broken a bone or have osteoporosis or another bone condition, you should also check in with a doctor to make sure this treatment is not too intense on the injury.
