Pressotherapy - lymphatic drainage
Pressotherapy is an exclusive detoxifying treatment, which through effective lymphatic drainage, helps to promote the body's natural toxin clearing functions. The lymphatic system is responsible for helping fluid and waste leave the body and for regulating the immune system. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates, causing the entire system to become toxic, making us feel sluggish and more susceptible to viral or contagious diseases.
By stimulating this system through massage, it works more efficiently, which in turn boosts the immune system, clears blockages, eliminates toxins, transports nutrients to cells and increases the metabolism.
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.
The deep skin pressure and stimulation may help to promote proper blood flow. If blood flows properly throughout the body, it is thought to possibly prevent swelling of internal body tissues by ensuring they are exposed to as much oxygen as possible. Receiving enough oxygen may help restore any damaged tissues and make the skin feel tighter and prevent loose or floppy skin.
In addition to being used for cosmetic purposes to smooth the texture of the skin, pressotherapy may also be implemented as an option for certain medical conditions. People who have medical conditions that cause poor blood circulation, such as hypertension or diabetes, may have the therapy performed to attempt to promote better blood flow. Proper blood flow can help relieve numbness or pain in the limbs and prevent skin discoloration from lack of blood flow.
Pressotherapy treatment is applied by means of special cuffs for legs, arms, waist and thighs. 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.
