Presso

  Therapy

Pressotherapy is used to:

  • Duplicate the action on the body of massage

  • Repress the blood through slow and progressive pressure

  • Lymphatic drainage (alleviate edema or swelling of the leg)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 edema (edema 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

PressoTherapy is a detoxifying treatment that assists your body's natural 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, and abdomen in a rhythmic motion, similar to a massage.
