What is compression therapy?
Compression therapy is a rapid recovery system that uses compressed air to massage limbs and enhance blood flow. It also activates the lymphatic system. Compression therapy moves blood, and lymphatic fluid in one direction, i.e. out of the extremities. This process speeds recovery. It is extremely popular among athletes who need to recover quickly. Anyone who is very active, or on their feet all day can use compression therapy to invigorate tired, over-worked muscles. Compression therapy is an innovative treatment that is used to help recovery and rehab after exercise or joint injuries. While compression therapy is commonly used for leg recovery, you can also use the treatment for hip and arm recovery as well.
At our Charlotte wellness studio, we use the NormaTec™ Pulse Recovery System for compression therapy. With the patented PULSE technology, our clients can recover faster between training sessions and after rigorous exercise. It is also highly beneficial for those standing on their feet all day.
