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.
What is Manual lymphatic drainage and compression garments?
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a very light lymphatic drainage massage technique that was developed in the 1930s. It is especially gentle and thereby very well suited to very weak, fragile or sensitive individuals and is the only technique suited to patients that had their lymph glands removed after cancer. However, this technique is not nearly as effective in healthy women (i.e. 95% of women) as pressotherapy
With the low pressure differential of anything between 7 and 15mmHg ,this pressure differential is too mild to offer any significant lymphatic drainage benefits with a Compression garment. Actually, it can make cellulite worse, as they deprive the tissues of mechanical stimulation necessary for collagen cell (fibroblasts) productivity.
How does pressotherapy work?
The air is automatically pumped into pneumatic chambers of the boot. The Machine can apply a pressure that reaches 100mmHg or even 120mmHg.With this strong pressure ,the machine can automatically adapt the patient's blood pressure and help all parts of body do the deep lymphatic
Understanding Far Ifrared Heat Therapy
Discovery of infrared rays
Invisible infrared rays was discovered ,when the solar light shoots to the prism by raising the indicated value of the thermometer which is placed outside of red in 7 colors visible light.
The invisible light with the power to warm the things was named "infrared rays", because they exist outside of red in visible light as shown in Fig.1.The infrared rays are the kind of electromagnetic waves
What is far infrared rays?
According to the wavelength ,The Infrared rays are divided into two wavelength regions, "near infrared rays" and "far infrared rays".
Far infrared ray is the electromagnetic waves with the wavelength from 3μm (micron) to 1mm (millimeter) = 1,000 microns, It is the reason that the electromagnetic waves more than 3μm in wavelength just match the molecule vibrations forming articles surrounding us such as stones, woods, plastics, fibers, waters, foods and animals including a human being.
