A relaxing and dynamic massage that freshens up a sore and tired body.
Compression Therapy uses dynamic and sequential compression to freshen and energize tired muscles and joints. This 30 minute experience is extremely relaxing so don’t be surprised if you find yourself napping during the session!
Compression Therapy focuses on the movement of lymphatic fluid through three key factors: pulsing, gradients, and distal release. Rather than squeezing on the extremities, Compression Therapy uses dynamic compression (pulsing) to mobilize fluid out of the area because it closely resembles the muscle pump action of skeletal muscle.
Because veins operate with one way valves to move blood back to the heart, Compression Therapy functions in the same way through the use of gradients. Gradients prevent the opportunity for backflow and force 100% of fluid in one direction; towards the heart. The distal release of Compression Therapy allows for the initial pulse to be more aggressive and effective without the negative consequences of restricted circulatory flow.
Ultimately, these key factors are what make Compression Therapy a comfortable yet effective tool for redistributing lymphatic fluid throughout the body!
Sessions run at 30 minutes in length.
Compression Therapy isn’t just comfortable, it’s absolutely RELAXING! Pressure is controlled on a 7 point feedback system, where a 1 is very light and a 7 is very strong. You are able to regulate the pressure the entire time. We would advise that you take the strength of the pressure to the most you can handle comfortably as this will provide the greatest benefits.
This depends on if the symptoms are related to your circulatory system (as is the case with most type II diabetics). If so, Compression Therapy is extremely beneficial and would absolutely help!
Of course the answer is, it depends. But as a general rule of thumb, brand new injuries such as sprains and strains should not do Compression Therapy. We would recommend you check out the Marc Pro Plus and Localized Cryotherapy instead!
Most people typically think to do Compression Therapy after they are sore and fatigued. However, Compression Therapy can be very beneficial before a workout as well. This is due to Compression Therapy’s impact on improved blood circulation. This allows for muscles to take in more oxygen and nutrients during the workout as a result!
