PRESSOTHERAPY

Pressotherapy is a painless, non-invasive detoxifying and recovery treatment. This is a revolutionary process that promotes the body’s natural functions and a technique with a physiotherapy origin. It is widely used in vascular treatment for the drainage of the lower limbs, an excellent means of treatment for oedematous cellulite in the lower limbs.  Pressotherapy is a non-invasive treatment that is used to unblock and enhance the flow of the lymphatic system; the network of organs and vessels that circulate body fluids throughout our body to play a significant part in our immune system. The flow of lymph fluid can get congested as proteins and toxins become trapped around the cells and resulting in the lymphatic flow becoming sluggish and slow.

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 is a great alternative to liposuction and can duplicate the action of a deep body massage (without feeling of pain or discomfort).  Pressotherapy can be up to 400 times stronger than a manual massage, which can make it the perfect treatment to follow cellulite, inch loss and fat reduction treatments and enhance the results.

Does Pressotherapy Treatment has side effects or contraindications?

Pressotherapy treatment has no side effect. So far, the pressotherapy treatment is very safe to all ages. After the treatment, some users may experiences some mild muscle discomfort, red blotching on the skin. Please don't worry as this is a normal reaction.

Muscle discomfort depends on how much intensity you selected the pressure. Usually it will disappear in 1 to 2 days. The red spotty will last for 3 to 4 days for some people. Chinese traditional medicine define it as dispelled toxin. If a person has a lot of toxin in the body, they will have many red spots after pressotherapy or deep massage. If they have a good metabolism activation, the red spottiness will disappear faster, meaning the toxin is removed from the surface sooner.

However, pressotherapy is contraindicated for those with severe diabetes, heart diseases, hemorrhage, acalcerosis, pregnancy, fever, hypertension, acute/chronic bronchitis, emphysema, liver cirrhosis, nephritides, dermatosis, asthma, chronic appendicitis, chronic cholecystitis, ascites,
