Two Types of Pressotherapy
Basic Lymphatic Drainage
First of, pressotherapy is a lymphatic drainage therapy that can help to detoxify the body. Those who suffer from lymphodemia are great candidates. Those clients who have increased fluid retention especially in the extremities would benefit from this therapy. It also can be a great form of massage for the limbs, lower back & torso.
Other benefits include;
Anyone suffering from the above symptoms may benefit from this therapy. It can be a great addition to the post operative healing plan of some surgeries. Or it can be great for those who have recently endured long flight travel.
For Cellulite Reduction & Body Reshaping
This method is ideal for body reshaping and cellulite reduction by aiding in the break down of the toxins store in these tissues. Over an average of 8 to 10 weekly treatments, a noticeable difference usually takes place. Many say they notice several centimetres gone after the first treatment.
This is one of the most common uses of this type of therapy. When delivered properly and incorporated with the proper lifestyle coaching methods, it can be a relaxing way to trim off that excess and unwanted extra cellulite baggage we all carry on us.
Essential Vitality doesn't agree with the quick fix way that many market the pressotherapy program. So we are therefore incorporating 1 health kinesiology session per month in our packages to help with lifestyle changing to help keep the excess cellulite off.
What is pressotherapy?
It is a unique system that employs a massage-like action using specialized pneumatic bladders that sequentially pump up and down (inflate & de-flate). This mechanism is controlled by a computer system. The higher grade systems also employ an adjustable Infrared system and/or an EMS (electro-muscle stimulator).
Essential Vitality is investing in one of these machines and hope to have it available in early April. We will be offering both types of appointments - health based pressotherapy and cellulite reduction pressotherapy.
As a special we will be offering 3 types of packages. 1 month package (which is geared more towards the medical based therapies), a two month package and a 3 month package (these latter two for the cellulite packages). We will have a convenient pre-authorized debit for those who prefer to budget this way. And each package will also have one FREE Health Kinesiology session per month to aid in lifestyle re-adjustments.
The Free Consultation
This consultation helps us to get to know you and your goals, and helps us assist in determining whether you have any risk factors that need to be assessed by a doctor before continuing on with this therapy.
For most healthy individuals, PressoTherapy has no risks, however, in certain states of disease there can be increased risk. We would therefore provide your GP with information about the therapy in the format of a form for him to read and sign indicating whether you can or cannot undergo the therapy. Not all people will be required to have their physicians sign a release. Only those with certain defined health issues.
A FREE consultation will also give you the opportunity to learn more about the service and asked questions.
Those who cannot have the service include:
