Compression Therapy

What is Compression Therapy?

Compression therapy is a treatment method that involves applying controlled pressure to a specific area of the body using compression garments. The pressure helps improve blood and lymphatic fluid circulation, reduce swelling, and promote healing.

FAQ

How does compression therapy work?
Compression therapy works by applying external pressure on the body part being treated. This pressure helps to improve blood flow and facilitate the movement of fluid from the affected area back into the lymphatic system. It also supports muscles and joints and promotes efficient oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissues.
Is compression therapy painful?
Compression therapy should not be painful when applied correctly. However, some individuals may experience mild discomfort initially as they adjust to the pressure of the garment. It is important to inform your attendant if you’re experiencing any discomfort so that adjustments can be made if necessary.
How long does a session last?

Most sessions are scheduled for 30 or 45 minutes; however, we set aside 1 hour for personalized attention.

What are some other benefits of Compression Therapy?

Improved Circulation
Compression therapy helps enhance blood circulation by applying external pressure to the affected area. This increased blood flow promotes oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues while facilitating the removal of waste products.
Reduced Swelling and Edema
Compression therapy helps reduce swelling and edema by promoting fluid movement from the affected area back into the lymphatic system. It helps prevent fluid accumulation, enabling a more efficient drainage process. This can be particularly beneficial after surgery, during injury recovery, or in cases of chronic edema.
Enhanced Athletic Performance and Recovery
Athletes often use compression therapy to improve performance and accelerate recovery. Compression therapy provides support to muscles and joints, reducing muscle vibration and oscillation during physical activity. In addition, compression therapy promotes better blood flow and oxygen delivery to the muscles, which aids in the removal of metabolic waste products and reduces muscle soreness after exercise.
Pain Relief

Compression therapy can help alleviate pain associated with certain conditions, such as chronic venous insufficiency, varicose veins, and lymphedema. The pressure applied during the session helps to relieve discomfort, reduce inflammation, minimize swelling, and contribute to overall pain relief for an improved quality of life.
