But what if diet can prove to be quite a challenge and regular sport too difficult to reconcile with your busy schedules? Pressotherapy comes to the rescue. It is a relaxing and firming compression therapy for lymphatic drainage designed to win the fight against swelling, pain in the limbs, overweight, cellulite and signs of aging of the body. Thanks to the combined treatment with FIR (far infrared), the effect is deepened.
Pressotherapy can bring exceptional results and get you back on your feet immediately. All you have to do is put on the special compression cuffs with the far infrared option and lie back in complete relaxation and warmth for half an hour.
How simple the truth!
Pressotherapy treatment can be an excellent way to fight overweight because pressure massage causes changes in your body on many levels. New scientific evidence for the therapeutic effect of massage on weight loss is constantly emerging. Massage also helps to get rid of excess body fat, reduce cellulite and improve digestion. For overweight people, it is an effective, safe and relaxing way to lose weight.
What happens in in your body thanks to the pressotherapy treatment:
Research shows that combining massage therapy with exercise produces amazing results. In one session you can get rid of 0.5 kg of body weight in 24 hours.

It is also known that massage improves the appearance of cellulite skin by stretching it. Cellulite is a condition where lumpy tissue develops on the thighs and buttocks. It's subcutaneous fat. Cellulite appears when you eat fat-rich foods. It accumulates in fat cells and expands them, which results in weight gain.
If massage is applied to areas affected by cellulite, it will break down the fat and reduce its appearance, which will lower your weight and make you look slimmer. International Journal of Women's Dermatology, massage can reduce cellulite, resulting in weight loss.
Massage helps to cope with increased weight, which is associated with high levels of stress. Massage is known to promote relaxation. It does this in several ways. It produces dopamine and serotonin in the body, which makes you feel happy. It also reduces the level of cortisol that is produced in response to stress.
Article published inInternational Journal of Neuroscienceconfirms the reduction of stress after massage. On average, there was a 31% decrease in cortisol levels, a 28% increase in serotonin levels and a 31% increase in dopamine levels. When you are happy, you eat less and lose weight.
Massage is a great way to ensure deep relaxation and improve circulation. It can also significantly reduce stress levels, which has been proven time and time again to be the key to a good night's rest. The pressure, especially in the upper limbs, around the wrist, improves the secretion of melatonin, which facilitates and prolongs sleep.
Poor sleep quality can increase the feeling of hunger, promote uncontrolled eating under the influence of emotions and extremely bad dietary habits.
For adults, it was shown that sleeping less than 6 hours was significantly associated with a higher risk of obesity! Interestingly, it was also shown that each additional hour of sleep in the group of people sleeping less than 5 hours was associated with a decrease in BMI of 0.35 kg/m2.
The accumulation of toxins due to poor circulation is associated with weight gain. Toxins can affect hormones like insulin and cortisol that are involved in metabolism. They can also damage the body's ability to burn fat by damaging mitochondrial enzymes, thereby increasing body weight.
They can change the circadian rhythm and increase the load on the liver. All these factors lead to weight gain.
Massage improves blood circulation which helps to reduce the level of toxins from the body. Reduced levels of toxins result in lower body weight. Pacific College of Health and Science confirms its effectiveness in removing toxins.
Improvement of Digestion
Digesting food is crucial to maintaining weight. Poor digestion doesn't break down food properly and causes improperly digested nutrients to build up in the body, which can cause weight gain. Poor digestion of food can also be caused by increased levels of stress. Massage reduces sympathetic stimulation and enhances parasympathetic stimulation, which promotes relaxation and digestion.
In addition, abdominal massage increases blood circulation in the stomach, which releases acid that promotes the breakdown of food. Massage also stimulates intestinal peristalsis, which moves food down the body towards the intestine.
According to an article published inJournal Of Intensive Care, massage improves digestive functions in people. The study involved 60 people hospitalized in the ICU; Participants' residual gastric volume was measured after the intervention and 1 hour of massage for three days. The results suggested less residual gastric volume after the intervention than before, suggesting that abdominal massage improves digestion. Massage also improves the condition of diarrhoea, bloating, heartburn and constipation.
Improvement of Blood Circulation
Poor blood flow causes the accumulation of waste metabolites in the body, which is associated with weight gain. It is known that massage significantly improves blood circulation.
This is confirmed, for example, by a study published inThe Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. A total of 28 participants received a ten-minute calf massage. There was an increase in temperature, suggesting an improvement in blood flow. This may be due to the pressure exerted on certain areas which moves blood through more difficult areas.
The increased blood flow carries more oxygen and nutrients to the organs of the body and removes all toxic metabolites from the body through the kidneys in the form of urine. In this way, the increased removal of waste products prevents their accumulation in the body, thus reducing the chance of gaining weight.
Several types of research show that increased levels of stress are associated with weight gain. This can be correlated with an increase in appetite or emotional reactions. A paper published in 2009 suggests that increased levels of anxiety and stress are linked to overfeeding, which increases weight.
Cortisol is normally produced in the body during stress. But its overproduction can negatively affect the body. It increases appetite, which leads to overeating. This is due to the accumulation of fat in the abdominal area. Both increased appetite and fat deposition are associated with weight gain.
Article published inJournal of Neurosciencesuggests that massage lowers cortisol levels in the body. Reducing cortisol levels, in turn, lowers appetite, reduces fat storage and stress, which helps to reduce weight.
A slow metabolism only burns a few calories, which means that more fat accumulates in the body, resulting in weight gain. On the other hand, an accelerated metabolism means increased energy consumption by the body, which helps to burn extra calories. Massage improves blood circulation.
Increased blood flow results in increased exchange of materials (nutrients) and oxygen between blood cells and body tissues, thus increasing metabolism.
It allows the muscles to burn more calories. Thanks to the massage, you can eat your favorite foods without worrying about gaining weight.
A study published inJournal of Pediatricsconfirms the fact that massage reduces fat deposition. Twenty-two infants (12 boys and 10 girls) received massage or follow-up care. The results indicate that massage reduces fat deposition in male infants.
Restrictive movements and less flexibility result in reduced exercise performance, limiting caloric intake and weight loss results. This can be due to many reasons. One reason is muscle tension. But here massage also solves your problem.
Massages reduce muscle pain and help the body get rid of waste products. It manipulates the soft tissues of the body and raises the body temperature. It reduces puffiness and helps to break the grip. Stretches body tissues and relieves tension, thereby increasing range of motion and flexibility. Increased muscle flexibility allows you to perform exercises better, which is associated with weight loss.
Article published in a scientific journalJournal of Physical Therapyconfirms that the massage has a positive effect on increasing the range of motion. The study involved 237 participants who received therapeutic massage. The findings suggest a better range of shoulder motion, especially abduction and flexion.
Our pressotherapy machine also uses FIR far infrared technology, which, penetrating the tissues, dissolves fat, stimulates blood circulation and collagen production, nourishes cells, regenerates muscles and helps to eliminate scars.
After the treatment, the whole body will be refreshed and full of energy. The specificity of the FIR technology lies in the fact that before you feel the heating of the very surface of the skin, the internal parts of the body, which are located about 4 cm to 7 cm below the surface, are initially heated.
This is great news because that's where the stubborn fat deposits and major blood vessels are located.
