Understanding the benefits
of Compression therapy
What is Pressotherapy?
Pressotherapy also known as lymphatic drainage and compression therapy uses controlled pressure to increase blood flow throughout your body, from your legs into your vital organs such as your heart. Your lymphatic system eliminates your body’s waste. At the same time, it supports your veins and decreases swelling.
It is believed that compression therapy increases performance, reduces soreness after exercise, and significantly reduces the risk of blood clots.
Pressotherapy is a process that improves lymphatic drainage, consequently slimming the appearance of the arms and legs (due to the fact that they contain less fluid), alleviating aches and pains, and purifying the body. It inflates a suit that squeezes your arms, legs, or abdomen in a rhythmic manner, similar to a massage, using an air pressure machine.
There is some evidence that lymphatic drainage massage, such as compression therapy, can help to minimise the appearance of cellulite and discharge fluid from the lymph nodes that can accumulate after surgery or some cancer therapies.
This article will go over what to expect from pressotherapy, who is a good candidate for it, the benefits and adverse effects, and how much it will cost.
Compression therapy is effective and can enhance the quality of life for persons suffering from a variety of ailments. It’s frequently prescribed by doctors to keep venous insufficiency from worsening.
Blood travels from your heart to the rest of your body through your arteries. Blood flows back to the heart through your veins, and valves in the veins prevent blood from going backwards.
Venous insufficiency occurs when your veins have problems returning blood from your extremities to your heart. Blood does not flow back to the heart adequately in this disease, causing blood to pool in the veins of your legs.
Compression therapy uses controlled pressure to increase blood flow in your legs and improve blood flow to the heart. At the same time, it supports your veins and decreases swelling.

What are the Benefits?
The lymphatic system is stimulated by pressotherapy. The lymphatic system distributes lymph, a fluid containing white blood cells that help fight illness when it’s working properly. The following are some of the potential advantages of compression therapy:
- Muscles are relaxed, and there are fewer aches
- Cellulite appearance is reduced
- Swelling and stiffness in the limbs are reduced
- Helps remove toxins
- Skin becomes firmer and toned
- Lymphatic circulation is improved, resulting in a stronger immune system.
Compression therapy Work?
How does Compression therapy Work?
- When you arrive for your session, you will be shown to a pressotherapy chair or bed. You are not required to take off your clothes. While you can learn how to give yourself a lymphatic drainage massage at home, compression therapy should always be done by a trained professional in a professional setting.
- The aesthetician will assist you in putting on the garment (which resembles a spacesuit worn by astronauts). Wrap it around your legs, your midsection, your arms, or all three.
- The garment is equipped with tubes that connect to a computerised air pressure system. You will feel a squeezing feeling that should seem like pressure rather than pain as the garment inflates with air.
- A usual session is 30 to 45 minutes long. Your body may feel light thereafter, and some people have reported that they feel compelled to urinate right away, which could be related to water movement in the body. Compression therapy can be done as frequently as twice a week.

Compression therapy 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.
In addition, 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.
Treatments are usually repeated over days or weeks. You should complete the whole course for the most benefit.
If you are sick or have the following symptoms, your treatment session may be postponed.
- Severe cold or flu
- Chest infection
- Runny nose
- Sickness (nausea).
