A pressotherapy treatment can help stimulate the body’s lymphatic system to support lymph. This fluid contains white blood cells critical to fighting infection.
Pressotherapy is considered a safe and effective treatment, although there can be some minor side effects. They include possible redness or slight irritation from the pressurized garments and muscle pain if the pressure is too high. Your trained esthetician at Elite Spa will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your procedure to help prevent any negative or harmful side effects.
You can get pressotherapy treatments from a highly trained esthetician here at Elite Spa. Instead of being performed by a person, the esthetician will get you set up in a specialized machine designed to deliver pressure at certain points in your body. You don’t have to take your clothes on. The suit slides or wraps around your legs, midsection, and arms.
The suit is hooked up to a machine inflating and deflating with air, applying gentle pressure to your body. Your session will last 30-45 minutes and can be done as often as twice a week.
After your session, you may feel a little light. You may have to urinate immediately after due to the movement of fluids in the body. You’ll
want to avoid any activities that might irritate the hair follicles like
tanning, sun exposure, sweating, or applying makeup and lotion 24 hours after the treatment.
The amount of sessions needed depends on many variables, a free consultation will be a great way to find out exactly what will benefit your body the most.
One session is about 30-40 minutes.
Like any massage, some body types will require more pressure applied, the technician will tune the machine to the strength level required after an evaluation.
Usually, it is well recommended to preform a session after a stressful event like an extensive workout, EMT or Cryolipolysis session.
