What is Pressotherapy?

Pressotherapy lymphatic drainage massage is a type of compression therapy that can detox the lymphatic system while you relax and regenerate. The lymphatic system is a low-pressure system, and lymph fluids sometimes struggle to circulate well within the body. When this happens toxins can begin to build up in the body and cause systemic inflammation.

At Chill Wellness, we offer the most comprehensive treatment available using the BallancerPro system. This FDA-cleared device is a professional treatment modality that can assist with draining the lymphatic system providing many benefits for whole-body healing.

 

History and Technology of Pressotherapeutic Massage Treatments

Pressotherapy began in Austria and Germany and later spread to the United States, New Zealand, and Australia. This therapeutic technology is modern, utilising 24 overlapping chambers that target each area of the body for balanced stimulation. The 24 chambers inflate in a wave-like pattern to gently but firmly move the lymph through the body to lymph ducts in the lymphatic and thoracic regions for waste disposal.

 

Lymphatic System Benefits of Pressotherapy

Pressotherapy supports the lymphatic system and the immune system by improving the circulation of lymph in the body. The lymphatic system differs from the circulatory system in that it relies on muscle contractions and gravity to move. Because the lymphatic system is so important for toxin removal and immune function, it is essential to move the lymph regularly and thoroughly for whole body health.

 

Medical and Aesthetic Benefits of Pressotherapy

Pressotherapy offers both medical and aesthetic benefits. It reduces edema (water retention) and lymphedema and helps to prevent DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Aesthetically, it firms the skin, reduces cellulite, and supports weight management and weight loss. Pressotherapy is also commonly used after liposuction or other surgical procedures for post-surgical healing. It reduces swelling and inflammation while accelerating the detoxification of waste products, thereby promoting faster tissue regeneration. It can also help with wound healing to reduce scarring while alleviating pain during the healing process. Pressotherapy is an essential addition to a post-surgery protocol for healing.

 

Pressotherapy to Improve Athletic Performance

Additionally, pressotherapy enhances athletic performance by speeding muscle recovery and reducing soreness. It provides significant relief for chronic venous insufficiency by improving circulation and reducing leg discomfort. Many athletes use pressotherapy to decrease downtime, maintain peak conditions, and minimise injury risk. Its non-invasive nature makes it an effective option for whole-body health and rejuvenation.

 

Treatment Offerings at Chill Wellness

Pressotherapy sessions can be tailored to target specific areas of the body, offering flexibility to meet individual needs. For those focusing on the lower body, a 40-minute pressotherapy session is available. This treatment is particularly beneficial for reducing swelling in the legs, enhancing circulation, and alleviating conditions such as lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency. It is also highly effective for aesthetic concerns, such as reducing cellulite and firming the skin in the lower body.

Alternatively, a comprehensive 60-minute whole-body pressotherapy session is offered. This extended treatment provides all the benefits of lower body pressotherapy while also addressing the upper body, promoting overall lymphatic drainage, reducing systemic swelling, and improving overall circulation and detoxification. This holistic approach is ideal for individuals seeking extensive therapeutic and aesthetic benefits across their entire body.

As an optional add-on, a 20-minute LED light therapy facial treatment can be incorporated into the pressotherapy session. LED light therapy is a non-invasive facial treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin at varying depths, providing a range of benefits. Some benefits of an LED facial include stimulating skin cell renewal, calming and reducing redness, improving blood circulation, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and firming and plumping the skin by boosting collagen.

Combining pressotherapy with LED facial therapy creates a comprehensive wellness experience that not only improves lymphatic health and circulation but also enhances skin health and appearance. This synergistic approach maximizes the therapeutic and aesthetic outcomes, providing a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating treatment.
