What is pressotherapy?
Pressotherapy is a technique for blood circulation enhancement, lymphatic massage and cellulite reduction. It is provided by special equipment that comprises inflatable boots (or arm sleeves) that rhythmically inflate and deflate in order to pump lymph in the lymphatic vessels and blood in the veins of the legs (or arms) towards the heart. It is also known as alternate compression therapy or pneumatic compression therapy. It is a mechanised lymphatic drainage technique that fights water retention by applying intermittent compression on one or more parts of the body – typically the legs, stomach and arm.
