Pressotherapy is a painless, non-invasive detoxifying treatment.

This is a revolutionary process that promotes the body’s natural functions and is a technique with a physiotherapeutic origin, widely used in vascular treatment for the drainage of the lower limbs. It is an excellent means of treatment for oedematose cellulite in the lower limbs.

Pressotherapy treatment is applied by means of trousers, sleeves or a girdle. A computer controlled compression system inflates individual sections of a special multi-chambered garment, forcing toxins and fatty deposits into the circulatory system. This enhances extra-cellular fluid clearance, increasing venous flow (blood flow to the heart). The toxins are then naturally flushed by the body through the lymphatic system. It’s a great alternative to liposuction.

How does it work?

The human lymphatic system is responsible for removing interstitial fluid from tissues. It absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats throughout the circulatory system and transports antigen-presenting cells to the lymph nodes where the immune response is stimulated. Diseases and problems of the lymphatic system usually cause swelling, fatty deposit and other symptoms.

Lymphatic drainage unblocks lymphatic ducts and vessels. This causes the natural flow of the lymph from the peripheral parts of the body and reduces swelling, pain, and cellulite deposit caused by the excessive amount of the lymph and metabolites in the limbs.

In Pressotherapy special applicator sleeves with multiple overlapping chambers provide a gentle massage that encourages the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. Pressotherapy activates the passive part of the circulation- the veins and lymph vessels and stimulates drainage of accumulated toxins to scavenging organs. Absorbs swellings and has release and analgesic effects. The Pressotherapy stimulates the muscles, eliminates tiredness and helps recovery after exercise and after prolonged bilization. Activation of muscle tone reduces fat deposits in the thighs, hips and waist.

It is recommended for cellulite, obesity, in weight and fatigue in the legs as a result of impaired blood flow and swelling of limbs. It provides total relaxation and complete recovery of the body.

PRESSOTHERAPY IS USED TO:

  • Duplicate the action on the body of massage
  • Repress the blood through slow and progressive pressure
  • Lessen telangiectasis (capillary distension / swelling / expansion)
  • Lymphatic drainage (alleviate oedema or swelling of the leg)
  • Provide immediate leg comfort and lightness
  • Assist in kidney function (poor filtration and a hydro saline imbalance, can lead to possible accumulation of large quantities of fluid in the tissues
  • Assist in healthy heart function (problems can lead to tapered oedemas because of an inadequate pumping effect)
  • Assist in premenstrual oedema (oedema during menstrual periods are linked to the fluid-retaining effects of oestrogen and progestin. Pressure therapy during the periods quickly solves the problem.)
  • Improve poor skin tone and reduce bags under the eyes
  • Improve loss of muscle tone in immobilized patients, the disabled and the cachectic
  • OTHER TREATMENT BENEFITS INCLUDE:

  • Immediate relief and comfort for heavy legs, water retention, cellulite, and poor circulation
  • Body shaping and profiling
  • Weight management
  • Pre and post liposuction treatment
  • Reduces localized lipolytic oedema (fatty deposits)
  • Effective lymphatic drainage
  • Relieves leg pain and swelling
  • Helps prevent venous stasis (stagnation of blood flow in veins / capillaries)
  • Helps prevent deep vein thrombosis
  • Improves blood flow and oxygenation
  • Provides athletic performance enhancement
  • Results may vary from person to person as well as overall satisfaction.
  • Contraindications (Reasons why you may not be able to have Pressotherapy treatments):

  • Acute inflammation (caused by bacteria, viruses, poisons or allergens)
  • Malignant tumors
  • Thrombosis and phlebitis
  • Major heart problems
  • Osteosynthesis or joint replacement in lymphatic paths
  • Pregnancy
  • Epilepsy
