Compression therapy has become very popular for not only athletes but anyone wanting to improve muscle recovery, reduce swelling, increase circulation and improve overall wellness, including improving varicose veins and tightening loose skin.
The Normatec compression system was created by a physical bioengineer specifically to enhance blood flow and speed recovery. This is done through the use of compressed air that massages your limbs, mobilizes fluid and ultimately speeds up recovery. The system uses three techniques to maximize this process; pulsing, gradients and distal release.
Sequential pulsing essentially mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms moving fluid and metabolites out which is key in healing after an intense workout. The system uses hold pressures that keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. The sequential pulse technology releases the hold pressure so the limb gains maximal rest time between compression cycles.
The system offers attachments for legs, hips, arms and shoulders and has minimal risks associated citing the same potential risk as with a standard massage. The intensity and duration is set based on the needs or desires of the client. Sessions generally run thirty or sixty minutes and are have benefits for either pre or post workout. Pre workout helps to warm the muscles up and improves flexibility helping to prevent injury and post workout helps improve recovery time allowing for more intense training.
Combining compression pulse therapy with cryotherapy offers clients an even higher level of recovery. We are so excited to be able to offer this additional service at CryoRanch. Please call or email to schedule an appointment for the compression therapy.
