Massage therapy has many benefits. Not only is it relaxing, but it can also help lower blood pressure, relieve anxiety, strengthen your immune system, among other things.
And as you might be aware, there are different types of massages that you can choose from. For example, there’s deep tissue massage, trigger point massage, and hot stone massage.
Pressotherapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves the application of air pressure to different parts of the body. Similar to a massage, it can stimulate the lymphatic system, which will help clear away toxins.
Not only that, but it can also help slim and redefine the arms, legs, and stomach. In fact, evidence suggests that it can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Other Possible Benefits of Pressotherapy:
• Stronger immune system due to proper lymph drainage
• Reduction of swelling in the limbs
• Reduction of muscle pain and tension
• Better blood circulation
Pressotherapy is usually performed in a wellness center or spa. Unlike other types of massages, it’s administered by a machine.
While you don’t need to remove your clothes, you will have to lie down on a chair or bed. An esthetician will help you get into the garment, which can be wrapped around your legs, abdomen, or arms.
Once the machine turns on, the garment will begin to inflate with air; you will feel a bit of pressure. This will continue for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on your session.
Pressotherapy is considered safe. With that said, some people may experience side effects.
For example, it can cause redness or slight irritation if the pressure on the machine is turned on too high. Some people might also feel the need to urinate right away, which could be due to the movement of the fluid in the body.
Pressotherapy lymphatic massages can benefit your body in more than one way. Given that, it’s not surprising to know that it’s becoming more and more popular.
Immediately after treatment you may experience slight redness or tenderness but it should disappear within next couple of hours. There is very little risk of complication or serious skin irritation when electrolysis is performed by a skilled practitioner.
Avoid any type of activity that could irritate hair follicles like excessive sweating, tanning, and prolonged sun exposure or make-up and lotion application after first 24 hours following treatment.
