One of the treatments that is having great acceptance in recent years is pressotherapy. There are several reasons why this boom, but these can be summarized in two aspects: its aesthetic and health benefits.
Pressotherapy is a medical technique indicated to achieve lymphatic drainage in people who have medical and aesthetic problems, such as alterations in the circulatory system, tired legs, spider veins, edema, cellulite, and accumulations of fat.
This lymphatic drainage is carried out by applying air to the body and to do so, it is necessary for the person to get into a pneumatic suit equipped with a certain number of chambers that distribute air pressures throughout the affected areas of the body.
The suite consists of several parts according to the areas of the body that can be treated. For this reason, it is made up of a sash (abdomen), boots (feet and legs), arms, buttocks, etc.
This technique is very simple to perform is not painful, it is effective, healthy, and quite inexpensive. In addition, it offers immediate results and provides a feeling of relief and rest that should not be overlooked.
Pressotherapyborn in the 60sto treated vascular problems resulting from vasectomies. Two decades later, medical research concluded that it was very effective for other ailments, as well as to treat aesthetic problems like cellulite and fat accumulations.
How does pressotherapy work?
After the person has entered the pneumatic suit, upward air pressure is applied. These pressure waves give the bloodstream the boost it needs for a rapid return to the heart.
With this technique, the feeling of a massage with relaxation and compression effects is sufficient to activate the lymphatic system and, with it, the elimination of liquids, toxins, edema, lymphedema, and venous disorders better known as varicose veins.
Each pressotherapy session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, and the number of sessions will depend on the medical problems of each patient and the objectives to be achieved. In this sense, the pressotherapy machines are equipped with personalized programs that are adapted to the needs and morphology of each patient.
What are its benefits?
When pressotherapy stimulates the lymphatic system, it causes lymph drainage(the transparent fluid that is produced after the excess fluid that comes from the capillaries to the intercellular space), thus eliminating liquids, toxins, and fats accumulated in the body.
This air pressure is capable of breaking the accumulations of grease located in the legs and buttocks, making it circulate with the rest of the retained fluids to be disposed of by the lymphatic system. Pressotherapy is also recommended to achieve muscle tone and boost the immune system.
