This treatment is most efficient before starting body shaping treatments in persons with BMI is 35 and up, this can get you slimmed down with a couple of sessions and serves as a beginning base.

What is Far-Infrared Pressotherapy?

Also known as ‘compression therapy’, pressotherapy is an advanced form of lymphatic drainage massage that uses specially designed garments that gently inflate to precise, pre-set pressures. A pressotherapy treatment is often described as having a team of massage therapists working on the body simultaneously to flush out excess fluid, toxins, and metabolic waste.

What are the benefits of body balancing using Pressotherapy?

Far Infrared Pressotherapy offers benefits in the following areas:

  • Cellulite and skin tone: Boosting the supply of fresh, oxygenated blood to the tissues will result in a significant improvement in cellulite and skin quality, leaving it firm and toned.
  • Slimming and body contouring: Improvements in the lymphatic and circulatory systems will lead to the rapid elimination of excess fluid, reducing volume and ‘puffiness’ in the treated areas in as little as a single treatment.
  • Health and wellness: A healthy, well-functioning lymphatic system will have a positive impact on the immune, digestive and nervous systems as waste, toxins and pathogens are removed from the body more quickly and effectively.
  • Fat Dissolving: Far Infrared works on fat tissue and dissolve fat cells with heat radiation. Regular inflation, deflation and variational air pressure can accelerate fat burning. Helps to speed up the blood circulation and promote metabolism.  The specific of far infrared technology is that it doesn’t heat up the surface of the body. Instead, it heats up the inner body that is 4 to 7 cm beneath the skin. This is wonderful because this is where the stubborn fat deposit and main blood vessels are located.

How many treatments am I likely to need?

This will depend on the particular body issue being treated.

  • Cellulite and skin tone improvements usually require a course, the usual recommendation being a series of 12 treatments spread over three to four weeks.
  • Used both pre and post-liposculpture, Pressotherapy will improve the results of both invasive and non-invasive techniques. One or two sessions right up to the day of the procedure will help boost lymphatic flow and will clear the area of excess fluid; after treatment, a course of 4 or 6 will reduce the bruising and swelling caused by the body’s natural response to the trauma caused to the body tissues; the desired body shape will be achieved faster and with less discomfort.
  • For bloating and puffiness caused by excess water retention, significant results can be obtained in as little as a single session.

So, in a nutshell, what are its Effects? 

• Improves lymphatic drainage acting on the vessels and lymph nodes.
• Stimulates the reabsorption of interstitial fluids (which accumulate between the tissues and cells).
• Promotes the return circulation: lymphatic and venous.
• Causes an Analgesic and relaxing effect.
