What is pressotherapy?

Pressotherapy, also called pneumodrenage, pulse barotherapy and barocompression, is a fairly popular and well-known physiotherapy procedure developed and first applied by the Dutch scientist van Der Molen. Human body fluids are used as application points. In essence, pressotherapy is a type of hardware massage; it is offered by massage and cosmetology offices, as well as multidisciplinary medical clinics.

The patient is put on a special suit consisting of independent sections for each of the arms, legs, and abdomen; these sections are successively – from the feet to the abdomen – supplied with air at a pressure greater than the normal pressure of the atmosphere. The air supply alternates with pauses in waves. The physiological significance of the procedure is as follows: the pressure creates a pulse wave in each sector, which literally drives excess fluid out of the intercellular space and increases blood and lymph flow.

    About the procedure

    Duration of the procedure:

    30-60 minutes

    Recommended course:

    5-15 procedures


    1 session in 2-3 days

    The effect comes:

    after the first procedure


    Reduction of body fat, weight loss
    Improve skin condition
    Elimination of heaviness in the legs
    Increased tone of the vascular walls
    Eliminating the effects of cellulite, correcting the contour of the figure
    The removal of swollen
    Stimulating the immune system
    Normalization of all internal organs


    By speeding up the exchange processes, the procedure not only helps to restore normal blood and lymph circulation, but also to remove waste elements from the body, eliminate edema, eliminate the problem of tired legs, strengthen blood vessels, increase skin tone, align the subcutaneous fat layer (that is, within the framework of a specialized course, it helps to solve the problem of lipodystrophy, or “cellulite”) and reduce weight.

    In addition, pressotherapy is successfully used for the treatment of certain diseases of the venous system, constipation, in the treatment of post-traumatic and post-operative edema and hematomas; it is prescribed (due to spasmolytic and vasodilating effects) and to relieve General fatigue, muscle pain and spasms, increase immunity and relaxation. The procedure is very pleasant in itself and is liked by everyone who has tried it; it is especially recommended for pregnant women suffering from leg edema (II and III trimesters), persons engaged in static – sedentary or standing-up – work (transport drivers, office workers, teachers, security staff, hairdressers, etc.); to no lesser extent, this procedure is indicated for people who are overweight, have edema, “orange peel”, sagging skin and muscles, permanent fatigue. The procedure has proved to be an excellent tool for preventing varicose veins and thrombosis (primarily necessary for those with a family history of pathology) and in many other cases.

    In aesthetic medicine, pressotherapy is perfectly combined with other methods of treating obesity, “cellulite” and figure correction, for example, with compression lipolytic or lifting banding (or “wrapping”). In this case, after peeling the body and shower, banding is performed, the body is wrapped in a procedural tape, covered with a thermal blanket – a banding session is held. And then comes session of pressotherapy. If you want or lack of time, the methods can be combined: wrapping the body in a tape, perform pressotherapy directly on the active compound under the tape. In both cases, the effectiveness of the impact is greatly increased, and the results are not only faster, but also more productive.
