History of pressotherapy

Pressotherapy has German origins:

The inventor of this method is Dr. Emil Vodder, Doctor of Philosophy and Physiotherapist. He was passionate about the work of Alexis Carrel, a Nobel prize winner in 1912 and a brilliant researcher, who was known for his study of the characteristics and surprising properties of the lymph that had kept chicken cells alive. In 1936, Dr. Vodder developed a method of stimulating the lymphatic system, now better known as lymphatic drainage. This invention required more than 20 years of work before it was recognized as effective by scientists and taught to naturopaths in Berlin.


How does it work ?

  • The role of the lymphatic network

Parallel to the blood circulation, there are other vessels that carry a colorless liquid called lymph. They form a vast network of canals intended to evacuate the various polluting wastes of the organism and likely to weaken it.

  • The origins of lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage intended to detoxify the body. The goal is to stimulate the lymphatic circulation to facilitate the passage and filtration of toxins drained by the lymph.

It consists of a technique of gentle massages performed with the fingers and the palms of the hands on the whole body respecting the direction of the lymphatic circulation and varying the pressure.

  • Pressotherapy: an innovation

This is a technological evolution of manual lymphatic drainage. pressotherapy allows for simultaneous action on the blood and lymphatic circulation by promoting stimulation of blood exchange and drainage of toxins and waste.

  • What happens during a session ?

The method uses inflatable boots that will wrap the legs (there are also sleeves for the arms and belts for the tummy). These boots are activated by an air compressor which gradually increases the pressure. The aim of this massage is to activate the circulation of the lymph, to stimulate the immune system and to offer a deep feeling of relaxation. After several sessions, the sensation of heavy legs and the cellulite effect gradually diminishes. The sessions last about 20 to 30 minutes.


Simple to use, adopt the method at home

This is an all-natural non-drug treatment. It brings real comfort and well-being and immediate relief. Simple, the treatment is safe, with no side effects and a small footprint.

To try this massage at home is to enjoy a real autonomy.

For a very occasional use, for a relief of heavy legs and swollen feet, an entry-level pressotherapy device is sufficient.

For a more effective treatment, you will be able to choose a pressotherapy device with several inflating cells offering a power adapted to effective treatments in depth.
