Mechanical lymphatic drainage
Pressotherapy is used primarily in clinical medicine to aid the draining of metabolic waste from tissues. Excessive physical strain and the higher temperature of working muscles causes increased quantities of metabolic waste. The metabolism of an active person works in high gear and the body’s metabolic waste processes inevitably work with higher volumes than during normal operation. That is just one reason why this method is such a popular form of regeneration for top athletes and recreational athletes alike, who like this treatment for the feeling of ‘light legs’ after gruelling training sessions or competitions. It is also widely used in aesthetic medicine as a face and décolleté beauty massage, and it can help with fatigue and cellulite.
