benefits of compression therapy
When someone thinks of compression therapy, they often associate it with athletes. While it’s great for speeding up recovery and improving athletic performance, compression therapy is also great for anyone looking to boost circulation, reduce swelling, and relieve muscle tension.
Guests who have benefitted from compression therapy have found relief from restlessness at night, tension and tightness from sitting at a desk all day, and fluid retention during pregnancy.
Compression therapy increases circulation by squeezing and releasing intermittently to mimic natural blood flow. A boost in circulation can help with the delivery of oxygen throughout the body, reduces swelling and inflammation, and relieves muscle pain.
improve lymph flow
Your lymphatic system is key for removing waste and keeping your immune system running smoothly. It transports white blood cells throughout the body and delivers bad bacteria to the lymph nodes to be destroyed. By increasing lymph flow, you’re allowing the body to better rid itself of waste and increase immune function.
Increased circulation allows the body to remove metabolic waste, including lactic acid, which builds up after an intense workout and causes tight, sore muscles. By encouraging the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to these areas, it allows for faster recovery and improved athletic performance.
It’s like an air massage, with the added benefits of lymphatic drainage and increased circulation.
What to Expect
During a Compression Therapy session, expect total-body relaxation. We like to describe this service as being similar to a massage, but with air! You’ll slip into the sleeve of your choice (legs, hips, or arms) and let the machine do the rest of the work. The intermittent squeeze and release allows oxygenated blood to flow throughout the body and helps release tight muscles. In just 15 minutes, expect to feel increased circulation and alleviated tension.
