Pressotherapy: Slim Down in Minutes With This Lymphatic Drainage Treatment

Do you want to slim down and detox your body? Try Pressotherapy at Biolite, an excellent alternative to manual lymphatic drainage massage.

What is Pressotherapy?

The lymphatic system is a vital component of your immune system and has a significant impact on the health of your skin and body. The lymphatic system, which consists of lymphatic nodes, veins, and fluid, is responsible for supporting healthy immunological functions in the body. It also aids in waste removal from your body and transports white blood cells that fight infection. However, your lymphatic system and lymph nodes can get blocked with fluid if there is an obstruction. Pressotherapy can help resolve this issue.

Pressotherapy provides an excellent alternative to manual lymphatic drainage massage. This treatment is designed to aid in lymphatic drainage, which may help the body detoxify, reduce aches and pains and slim the look of the arms and legs since they contain less fluid after the treatment. It works by pumping air into a suit that squeezes your arms, legs or abdomen in a rhythmic manner, much like a massage.

How does Pressotherapy work?

Pressotherapy is comparable to a lymphatic drainage massage. However, while massage is performed by hand, this therapy is delivered by a machine that dispenses the correct amount of pressure every time. Devices for Pressotherapy use a central control unit that pumps air into accessories that make a suit that covers the patient's body. Each portion of this suit corresponds to a different body part, such as the abdomen and limbs. Pressotherapy sessions last between 30 and 45 minutes. Depending on your specific needs, it is typically recommended to schedule a series of sessions for the best outcomes.

What are the benefits of Pressotherapy?

Pressotherapy drastically accelerates the body's ability to absorb and move lymphatic fluids, much like a lymphatic drainage massage. So, if you are looking for ways to improve your skin and body health, Pressotherapy is an excellent option. It offers a plethora of benefits, including:

Reduced swelling

Do you wake up with a puffy or swollen face? Pressotherapy can decongest your tissues and reduce swelling and puffiness.

Accelerated lymphatic flow

Like a lymphatic drainage massage, this treatment significantly speeds up the absorption and transportation of lymphatic fluids in the body.

Reduced bloating

Trapped fluid in your body is a major cause of bloating. Pressotherapy accelerates the movement of stagnant fluid and helps reduce bloating, thus instantly slimming you down.

Faster recovery

Doctors often recommend Pressotherapy pre and post-surgery as these help your body prepare for surgery and speed up the recovery process. Pressotherapy also relaxes your muscles, and you experience fewer aches.


Pressotherapy stimulates the lymph vessels of your lymphatic system to eliminate waste items, germs, viruses, extra proteins, extra fluid and any other unwanted substances from your body.

Prevents sagging of skin

Skin sagging is related to diminished dermal lymphatic vessel activity. Pressotherapy, which firms your skin, can help you deal with this problem.

Minimizes the appearance of cellulite

Did you know lymphatic drainage treatments like Pressotherapy can help minimize the appearance of cellulite as they reduce the amount of fluid that presses up against the cross-hatched fibers beneath your skin?

Are there any side effects associated with Pressoptherapy?

Pressotherapy is generally considered to be safe, but there are some side effects you might experience, such as muscle soreness if the machine's pressure is set too high and slight irritation or redness where the pressured clothing touches the skin.
