WHAT IS COMPRESSION THERAPY AND ITS BENEFITS?
A simple, consistent, and rhythmic massage that improves range of motion, reduces inflammation, and facilitates deep relaxation. Whether you are using the leg, hip or arm attachments, the simultaneous massage of both sides of your body increases blood flow/circulation, decreases muscle fatigue, and promotes healing and muscle recovery. The attachments use compressed air to massage your limbs and expedite the mobilizing of fluid from your limbs toward your core. Our equipment, NormaTec Recovery, has a patented massage pattern that is believed to be the most effective way to mobilize fluid in and out of the limbs. Each compression session uses a massage pattern that mimics the normal physiology of your body. It begins with a gentle pulse and release action similar to that of your normal “muscle pump” which enhances movement of fluid out of your limbs. It also uses a “hold” pattern to prevent fluid backflow working naturally with your circulatory system. This pattern repeats itself all the way up your limb and then repeats its cycle throughout a thirty minute session. Non-athletes (truck drivers, hairdressers, waiters, bartenders, those that sit at a desk all day) and athletes alike can benefit from this type of recovery massage.
