Drenaje linfático y el deporte: todo lo que debes saber

A few years ago, it was known Pre-therapy especially for its aesthetic applications. It was a very recurrent method in aesthetic centers and clinics, where women mainly attended. And not all of them knew it or could afford it. The "democratization" of a therapy that today, with technological advances, has greatly expanded its range of possibilities had not yet arrived.

Health Benefits of Presotherapy

Pressotherapy is based on an air compression system. The device or machine is like an engine that pumps air through conductive tubes, sequentially filling the chambers that the different garments have distributed so that they cover the area of the body to be treated well.

With the option of several programs and different levels of intensity and force, a controlled massage is exerted and strong enough to stimulate the vessels and ganglia of the Lymphatic system.

This is under the skin, in a not so deep layer of the body, that is, a massage with moderate pressure already manages to stimulate it. The health benefits of Presotherapy are very positive for athletes and athletes:

  • Massage reactivates the Lymphatic System
  • Blood circulation is also reactivated
  • Metabolic waste (metabolites) are channeled first
  • Increased oxygenation of tissues
  • The healing of injuries and stiffness is accelerated
  • For all of the above, muscle recovery is faster
  • The massage has a relaxing and physiotherapeutic effect.

Benefits of presotherapy at the sport level

In addition to these benefits for the usual athlete, those who start their routine to lose weight and stay in shape also take advantage of Pressotherapy to:

  • Reduce swelling caused by fluid retention
  • Eliminate fats and toxins
  • Reduce the visible effects of cellulite (orange peel skin)
  • Break fat nodules in arms, legs, buttocks or abdomen. Pressotherapy disintegrates fat, which little by little is channeled through the Lymphatic System.
  • improve varicose veins

All of these are symptoms and manifestations of underlying problems that, beyond the unsightly appearance, are the visible and palpable sign of an organism that is clogged and saturated.

That is why Pressotherapy is so positive and advisable. Because a single treatment has two functions and effects: Better aesthetic appearance and better physical health.

“The Lymphatic System participates directly in the defense and healing of the organism. Lymphatic drainage reduces muscle inflammation, essential for the athlete, who recovers sooner, thus being able to continue with his intense training sessions.”

Lymphatic drainage and sport perfect combination

The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels that transport the lymph, vital fluid with special properties. It is one of the super powers of the human body, as it is responsible for purifying the body and keeping its defenses in good condition.

This system is something like a "sewer" network through which fats, germs and toxins are conducted, which will be expelled through the connections that the system itself has with its ganglia - filtering nuclei loaded with white blood cells, fighters par excellence against any infection - and the various organs of the body.

In this way, the body is kept clean and safe from possible and even fatal infections. The Lymphatic System is the key and inseparable companion of the Immune System.

And of course, it also goes hand in hand with the Circulatory System. Good lymphatic health indicates a healthy body that functions properly. Let's not forget that the human body is itself a biological machine in which everything is interconnected. If something goes wrong and you get sick or not fixed, it will have a domino effect.

The reason why athletes use Pressotherapy so much is clear: The Lymphatic System participates directly in the defense and healing of the organism. Lymphatic drainage reduces muscle inflammation, essential for the athlete, who recovers sooner, thus being able to continue with his intense training sessions. Hence the importance of lymphatic drainage and sport.
