Presoterapia en Valencia

What is pressure therapy?

Pressure therapy is a technique performed by a machine with this name. This machine activates the lymphatic and/or circulatory system to perform a lymphatic drainage or circulatory massage. Some of the problems treated can be tired legs, spider veins, oedemas, cellulite and fat accumulation.

This lymphatic drainage is carried out by applying air to the body, and to do so, the person must be placed in a pneumatic suit equipped with a certain number of chambers that distribute air pressure along the affected areas of the body.

The suit consists of several parts according to the areas of the body that can be treated. For this reason, it is composed of sash (abdomen), boots (feet and legs), arms, buttocks, etc.

This technique is very simple to perform, painless, effective, healthy and quite economical. In addition, it offers immediate results and provides a sense of relief and rest that should not be overlooked.

Pressotherapy was developed in the 1960s to treat vascular problems resulting from vasectomies. Two decades later, medical research concluded that it was very effective for other ailments, as well as for aesthetic problems such as cellulite and fat accumulation.

How does pressure therapy work?

After the person has entered the pneumatic suit, air pressure is applied upwards. These pressure waves give the bloodstream the impulse it needs for a rapid return to the heart.

The air pressure is applied in a controlled manner according to the individual patient and the part of the body to be treated. With this technique, the sensation of a massage is achieved with sufficient relaxation and compression effects to activate the lymphatic system and, with it, the elimination of liquids, toxins, oedemas, lymphoedemas and venous disorders better known as varicose veins.

What are the benefits?

When pressure therapy stimulates the lymphatic system, it causes drainage of the lymph (a clear fluid produced after excess fluid from the capillaries to the intercellular space), thus eliminating liquids, toxins and fat accumulated in the body.

This air pressure is capable of breaking down the accumulations of fat localised in the legs and buttocks, making it circulate with the rest of the retained liquids to be eliminated by the lymphatic system. Pressure therapy is also recommended to achieve muscle tone and stimulate the immune system.

This technique is indicated for the following medical and aesthetic problems:

  • Treating fluid retention
  • Treating oedema and lymphoedema
  • Stimulate the circulatory system
  • Obesity-related treatments
  • Eliminate and reduce cellulite, as well as prevent its future formation
  • Eliminate toxins and fats from the body

Because of its efficacy, it is also very effective in post-operative treatments involving fluid accumulation, such as, for example, the liposuction and the mastectomy. It also helps to restore the skin's elasticity, facilitating tissue regeneration and increasing the supply of oxygen to the tissues.

In which cases is pressotherapy not recommended?

Although pressotherapy is a simple, painless and non-invasive technique with virtually no contraindications, there are some cases in which it is not recommended:

  • If the patient suffers from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • If you have any infection or wound in the area to be treated
  • If there is body pain or numbness
  • In cases of severe heart disease, or if the person is wearing a pacemaker
  • In case of pregnancy
  • If you are an oncology patient
