You will lie down on a comfortable treatment table, Sandy will apply specialized garments or sleeves to the target areas.
The sensation and duration
These garments will have multiple air chambers that will be inflated sequentially to apply pressure to different parts of the body. Some clients describe the sensation as having your blood pressure taken on the different body parts.
As the air chambers inflate and deflate, you’ll feel a gentle squeezing or pulsing sensation around the treated areas.
The pressure applied is can be adjusted if needed and I will be in the room behind my room divider screen, whilst the treatment is taking place to ensure you are comfortable and at ease throughout the treatment, most clients fall asleep and don’t even notice I am there. Soothing music will be played in the background and sometimes clients want to talk throughout the treatment too and that too is absolutely fine – it is your treatment so which ever you choose is absolutely fine, just let me know.
A typical pressotherapy session lasts around 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the specific treatment plan. Please note if you are having these sessions to aid weight management then up to 4 sessions a month are recommended. Packages are available to purchase too.
After the session, the therapist remove the garments, and you’ll be encouraged to drink water to aid in the detoxification process. Please bring some water with you.
