Compression and Decompression POWER OF PRESSOTHERAPY
Simple and Effective
WHAT TO EXPECT
The patient won’t need to remove their clothing but will put on an inflatable suit that squeezes their arms, legs, and abdomen in a rhythmic motion to help release fluid in the lymph nodes.
The suit has tubes on it that are hooked up to a computerized air pressure machine that provides the correct amount of pressure to the patient’s body.
During treatment, the patient will feel pressure during the process, but should not experience any pain.
A typical session lasts about 30 to 45 minutes, and may be done as frequently as twice a week.
After treatment, patients may feel light and have an urge to urinate, likely due to the movement of water in the body.
Many patients experience relief after one session. Some need 3-6 treatments spaced about a month apart.
