With Pressotherapy becoming increasingly popular, it’s left many people wondering how they can benefit from this treatment. Continue reading as we explore the question lots of people are asking, “What are the benefits of Pressotherapy?”.
Reduces Stress and Muscle Tension
Stress is responsible for a range of different physical and psychological symptoms, including muscle tension and tightness. This is because when experiencing stress, our bodies tense up and can quickly develop painful and sometimes large knots. Pressotherapy reduces muscle tension by focusing on specific muscle groups and limbs to break down this painful scar tissue.
The different pressure levels can be altered in order to effectively treat your specific requirements. It might take more than one session to feel the full effects and for muscle tension to fully ease. This will differ amongst individuals due to individual pain thresholds, along with the severity of tension and scar tissue.
Increases Circulation and Lymphatic Flow
When Pressotherapy takes place, both blood circulation and Lymphatic flow increase. This can boost your immune system due to the increase in white blood cells and the removal of toxic byproducts. When lymphatic flow and circulation increase it can also reduce the visible effects of cellulite by making skin appear smoother.
Lymphatic fluid build-ups can cause swelling around your joints, which can negatively impact mobility and range of movement. This is where Pressotherapy comes in, by removing blockages and flushing out this excess fluid to alleviate swelling. Pressotherapy alone cannot usually resolve mobility issues, but it can certainly help when used alongside other methods.
Pressotherapy is still a relaxing massage treatment that works groups of muscles at the same time. Although pressure fluctuates throughout the treatment, Pressotherapy treatments are generally a calming and enjoyable experience for clients. Some people even fall asleep, which is totally normal and can even improve your sleep quality. It’s important to embrace your treatment to reap both the mental and physical rewards.
What To Be Aware of Before Booking a Pressotherapy Treatment
- Pressotherapy is a safe treatment when performed by a fully trained and qualified masseuse. However, please be aware, that it’s not a suitable treatment if you’re pregnant and pregnancy massages are a great alternative.
- If you have any injuries or special requirements, it’s important to discuss these before booking your Pressotherapy appointment. Not only will this help to keep you safe, but we can also tweak treatments to provide the best possible result.
