Pressotherapy is a procedure that is said to help with lymphatic drainage, thereby potentially slimming the look of the arms and legs (because they carry less fluid), easing aches and pains, and detoxifying the body. It uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit that squeezes your arms, legs, or abdomen in a rhythmic motion, similar to a massage.
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.
WHO SHOULD CONSIDER PRESSOTHERAPY?
You don’t have to have a health or beauty problem to receive this treatment. You can receive Pressotherapy sessions to improve your health and well-being.
However, it can be quite useful for people with cellulite, bloating, varicose veins, circulatory or intestinal issues, obesity, tired legs, rheumatism or menopause. It is also suitable for all ages.
HOW DOES PRESSOTHERAPY WORKS?
Pressotherapy is similar to a lymphatic drainage massage, but while massage is performed by hand, it is administered by a machine that dispenses the correct amount of pressure every time.
To begin with, you’ll get a bodysuit with pipes that are filled with compressed air. As the treatment begins, the pressure of the compressed air will be pumped all over your body. This will make the suit inflate and deflate several times. This results in stimulating circulation in the body and massaging of the lymph nodes. This will accelerate the removal of toxins naturally.
A typical Pressotherapy session lasts for about 30 minutes.
BENEFITS OF PRESSOTHERAPY

HOW SOON ARE RESULTS SEEN?
You’ll need to do more than one session to see the results of Pressotherapy. But after the first session you will feel a clear improvement to your physical fitness, especially in terms of the elasticity and flexibility of the tissues. The professional will then assess how many sessions you need.
Drinking plenty of water and keeping yourself hydrated is the mainstay of Pressotherapy after care. Doing this will help you flush out all those unwanted toxins and provide you long-lasting results.
