Pressotherapy is a painless, 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.

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.
How often can I have Pressotherapy?
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our treatment co-ordinators to discuss your treatment options. Pressotherapy is a comfortable treatment that can be used weekly and is usually combined with many other fat reduction and cellulite reduction treatments for optimum results.
