What's Pressotherapy & How Does It Work?

Pressotherapy or Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) therapy is a therapeutic technique that involves the use of mechanical devices to aid in the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid in the limbs. It is commonly used for the prevention and treatment of vascular conditions, such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), lymphedema, and venous ulcers. In medical aesthetics, it is widely used to relieve swelling, promote detoxification, and reduce cellulite. Being effective, safe, and easy to use, it is also increasingly used by individuals in their daily life to relieve chronic pain, reduce muscle soreness and tension, improve blood circulation, and promote faster recovery after intense physical activity.

 

The basic working principle behind IPC is to apply intermittent pressure to the limbs, which helps mimic the natural muscle pump action and enhances blood and lymphatic flow. The compression is achieved using inflatable cuffs or sleeves that are wrapped around the affected limb. These cuffs are connected to a pneumatic pump that inflates and deflates them in a controlled manner.
