At Unique Day Spa in Dublin we want our guests to come in and completely unwind.
For some that means a glass of bubbles and a hot tub soak. For others it can be unwinding in the salt room or forgetting troubles on the massage table.
For you it could be the unique benefits of our Pressotherapy room.
Applying pressure and massaging sensations, via the Presso technology, to stimulate blood flow, ease aches and pains, and encourage lymphatic drainage can have huge revitalising benefits for you both physically and mentally.
Let’s look at the specifics of Pressotherapy for lymphatic drainage.
In terms of the basics, Pressotherapy is sometimes also known as compression therapy.
It is a medical and wellness treatment technique that involves the application of controlled pressure to specific parts of the body using Pressotherapy equipment. Doing this type of therapy will encourage improved circulation, reduce swelling, and enhance lymphatic drainage.
Because the treatment has both medical and beauty benefits, you will regularly find Pressotherapy mentioned or offered in both contexts. Athletes may use the same techniques for rehab and recovery, and spas such as ourselves will use it for that alongside other benefits.
From a lymphatic point of view, it’s important to actually understand what the lymphatic system actually is, before we consider how Pressotherapy can help.
We don’t need to get too detailed, but the lymphatic system operates throughout the body and drains a fluid called lymph into your bloodstream (via lymph nodes) and helps remove bodily waste, alongside carrying white blood cells.
That’s the medical bit!
So why would we want to encourage and stimulate this drainage?
Essentially, by incorporating this type of treatment into your life, it can combat puffy skin, dull complexions and general skin irritations. It can also help in tackling lines, wrinkles and cellulite.
This is on top of the previously mentioned rehab benefits in terms of easing aches, pains and muscle recovery (for example after hamstring or calf tears).
We hope this helps if you were curious as to what either Pressotherapy or lymphatic drainage are. The benefits are well known, and the therapy itself is fun to experience and a non-invasive treatment.
