Pressotherapy (lymphatic drainage)
Pressotherapy is a physical treatment based on muscle stimulation. The rhythmic action, which takes place in a certain sequence, is aimed at draining the lymph in the patient’s body.
Compressed air is applied to the body through a special suit. As a result of this pneumomassage, there is a natural lymphatic drainage and the excess extracellular fluid is removed from the tissues.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM PRESSOTHERAPY?
People with sedentary work and sedentary lifestyle know firsthand the problem of varicose veins and “tired legs” syndrome. Large lymph nodes accumulate toxins and decay products, blood microcirculation is reduced, edema and pain in the legs occur. Pressotherapy for the legs is a real salvation from the described symptoms. Compression massage helps to:
- improve venous circulation;
- eliminate edema;
- tone the walls of blood vessels;
- activate metabolic processes;
- Relieve fatigue of the extremities;
- improve the structure of the skin;
- Increase immunity.
Literally after several procedures patients feel lightness and vivacity. Body volume decreases, swellings fall, detoxification processes start up.
It should be taken into account that lymph drainage is not shown to everyone. So, from the procedure of compression massage should be refused in the case of:
- diabetes mellitus;
- kidney failure;
- tumors, both malignant and benign nature;
- presence of non-healed wounds or fractures.
