Tips and explanations to use Pressotherapy correctly

Here are some tips whether you have a pressotherapy machine at home as if you use it in a sports center:

  • DO NOT do intense physical exercise one hour before or one hour after using pressotherapy. It should be done when blood pressure and muscle tension are stabilized.
  • Sports recovery: Use the pressotherapy equipment after your training, waiting half an hour to an hour before starting your session. In that time, you can perform a series of stretching exercises.
  • The aesthetic effects of pressotherapy are not permanent or definitive. Use this therapy as maintenance.
  • If you are just starting out and want visible aesthetic results, do at least 2-3 sessions per week for 3 to 6 months. However, although we give you guidance, the frequency and number of sessions depends on your goals and needs.

Do not drink alcohol before treatment

  • After a more intense initial treatment, perform 1-2 weekly sessions for acceptable maintenance.
  • DO NOT do pressotherapy, especially abdominal, with a very full stomach. Consider an hour of digestion. The Digestive System is busy using a significant amount of blood to digest food.
  • Also wait an hour before doing pressotherapy if you have drunk alcohol. It is counterproductive to use a method that contributes to the detoxification of the organism while your liver is processing the alcohol. This could cause you physical discomfort.
  • DO NOT use pressotherapy while you sleep. You could take a nap and the machine would turn off as soon as it finished its program, but it is not advisable. Your blood pressure drops while you sleep. Yes to relaxing reading, listening to music or watching TV. Entertaining yourself is not incompatible with your pressotherapy session! Take a look at the suggestions at YOUR TIME SIZEN.
  • Pressotherapy as a purely relaxing massage? Light an aromatic candle or incense, put on some chill-out music, activate a soft program and enjoy your “personal masseur”.
