Pressotherapy is not only an aesthetic slimming treatment, but also a popular medical treatment with physiotherapists, wellness spas, clinics, nutritionists, personal trainers, gyms, and sports massage professionals alike. Currently, it’s in high demand, conveniently found at a growing number of local high-street clinics and salons across the UK.

Why is Pressotherapy so important?

This treatment promotes lymphatic system drainage through a system of alternating compression/decompression air pressure waves (or valves) on different parts of the body. I.e. various chambers placed on to the feet, legs, stomach, and arms.

What is main function of the lymphatic system?

• The lymphatic system is like our body’s “sewage system,” which is part of both the circulatory system and the immune system.
• It maintains fluid levels in our body tissues, by draining their excess fluids and returning them to the bloodstream.
• The lymphatic system is important for the optimal functioning of both general and acute immune responses, protecting the body by flushing out toxins.
• The lymph nodes monitor the lymph (the liquid which flows through the lymphatic system), and produce cells and antibodies which protect the body from infection and disease.
• The spleen and thymus gland are lymphatic organs that monitor the blood, and can detect and respond to pathogens or malignant cells.
• The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the absorption of fats from the intestine.
• When the lymphatic system is compromised, or damaged by surgery, radiotherapy, or tissue damage, a swelling in parts of the body may occur (most commonly in the legs or arms). When this swelling lasts over three months, it’s called lymphoedema.
• When the lymphatic system is not functioning well, it can lead to water retention, weight gain, obesity, Crohn’s disease and other disorders.

Let’s dive a little deeper: what exactly is Lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is a serious complication from a lymphatic system malfunction, diagnosed as a swelling in the arms or legs, which is caused by a lymphatic system blockage. Lymphoedema increases the risk of infection and other complications, because the lymphocytes (white blood cells) cannot reach those areas of the body where swelling occurs. Since the symptoms of lymphoedema are most evident in the arms or legs, pronounced swelling may cause fatigue and discomfort in performing routine daily activities.

Throughout this lockdown period, a large percentage of us have been impacted with having to work from home, adapting to a home office, sitting awkwardly at times, as well as not being able to receive regular massages or treatments for both medical and aesthetic purposes.

The impact has reached both the healthy population and those who are shielding due to a more vulnerable immune system, health complications, and some of which are specifically suffering from the restrictions of limited mobility. A portion of the latter may be affected by Lymphoedema.
With our adapted lockdown lifestyles, some of us have paid more attention to nutrition, diet, and exercise. Some of us have also taken action in improving our fitness, possibly involving goals such as losing weight or toning up. Therefore by combining Zemit’s Pressotherapy treatment with your “let’s get fitter and healthier” goals, this will allow you to see a much quicker transformation over a short period of time. A real boost for your motivation!

Through our expert consultations at Zemits, we have seen a huge increase in demand for Pressotherapy devices via communications with our clients, as well as on the market.
As a client of Zemits, once you purchase Zemits Abigon Pro or Zemits Bionexis Lite, we 100% recommend adding a Zemits Sisley 2.0 pressotherapy device to your treatments menu, in order to consolidate all the health benefits and achieve stronger, longer-lasting results for your very own clientèle.

In addition, pressotherapy allows for added hands-free moments for aestheticians, where one can focus on other in-clinic duties while the client relaxes during their treatment. Meanwhile, the state-of-the-art devices are working away on lymphatic drainage by flushing away unwanted fat cells, toxins, and excess fluids out through the lymphatic system.

Pressotherapy recommendations & benefits:

● It helps people suffering from Lymphoedema, Lipoedema, or local swelling (oedema).
● It is effective with clients who travel regularly by plane, and want to get rid of all the excess fluids retained in the body.
● It's commonly used as a pre- and post-liposuction treatment, or simply body shaping (a reduction of cellulite through external slimming and detoxifying of the body).
● Rapid relief and comfort for clients suffering from heavy legs, water retention, cellulite, and poor circulation (stimulating the immune & circulatory systems).

● Athletes have used Pressotherapy to improve their physical fitness, in order to tone their muscles and joints. It can aid muscle relaxation by reducing muscle fatigue and strengthening the connective tissue.
● It relieves pain and provides immediate comfort as a non-invasive treatment.

● A perfect boost in improving circulatory system disorders or venous issues, such as varicose veins, tired legs, and heavy limbs.
● The treatment improves the recovery of the skin’s elasticity, by increasing oxygen in tissues that aid cell regeneration.

● It can also alleviate digestive problems, when directly applied to the abdomen. This stimulates bowel transit and relieves constipation.
As fully trained professionals, we must strictly follow all the required treatment protocols and recommendations, and perform an initial full body consultation with a client before undergoing any pressotherapy treatment, to verify that it’s suitable for them. Although pressotherapy is a non-invasive treatment, we must always be aware that the list of contraindications is long, as unfortunately this is not suitable for everyone, e.g. not recommended for those who are pregnant, suffer from cardiovascular diseases, etc.
