What comes to your mind when you hear the word "pressotherapy"? Most likely, you have already understood the essence of the procedure, which will be discussed in this article. Pressotherapy is a unique method of hardware cosmetology, the session of which will give your body lightness and relaxation, will help relieve tension and give a charge of cheerfulness. The procedure is performed using a special apparatus that will literally compress your body, thereby restoring the flow of lymph and blood in your body. Why this procedure is so popular, why it is good and what problems it will help to get rid of, let's understand!
What is pressure therapy?
Pressotherapy or press-massage received the recognition of many women who monitor their health and body. Of course, the procedure cannot be called a panacea for all problems, but there is no doubt about its effectiveness in providing lymphatic drainage. The procedure uses a special apparatus for pressure therapy, which resembles a spacesuit with a lot of wiring and hoses. Through these hoses air is drawn into the cuffs of the “suit”, which creates the effect of a press. Compression power is computer controlled. Gradually, the air is supplied to different parts of the "spacesuit", thereby stimulating the muscles. This stimulation provides lymphatic drainage.
Who is pressure therapy recommended for?
If you have a sedentary job, then most likely your lymphatic system does not work effectively enough. In order for the lymph to move in the body, you must also move actively. What effect does the lymph movement have on the body? Let's say this: our survival depends on how effective this movement will be. The lymphatic system is quite complex in nature, but the essence is this: lymph brings nutrients to every cell of the body, and takes waste products. Lymphatic drainage is a must for the lymphatic system to work properly!
Phlebologists quite often recommend this procedure to their patients who suffer from varicose veins; presso massage is even referred to as a healing method. But also those who, fortunately, are not familiar with this problem, a session of this therapy will bring considerable benefits. Given the sedentary lifestyle of most modern people, coffee and salty food addictions, which slow down the removal of fluids from the body, almost everyone can recommend this procedure, of course, if there are no contraindications.
What effect is expected from pressotherapy?
Massage pressure therapy has the following effect:
- Gives a feeling of weightlessness and lightness in the legs.
- Relieves tension throughout the body, relaxes.
- Strengthens blood vessels and effectively fights varicose veins.
- Removes excess fluid from the body, reduces swelling.

In addition, employees of beauty salons promise to get rid of cellulite after a course of procedures, but the majority of reviews do not confirm the effectiveness of pressure therapy in the fight against the "orange peel". Photo "Before and after" eloquently speak about the effectiveness of the method. To enhance the effect of pressomassage, it is recommended to perform in combination with other methods of combating cellulite, for example, LPG massage.
