What is Compression Therapy?
Compression therapy has been around as a medical treatment for a long time. NormaTec — one of the biggest compression therapy names in the market and the device we use at Internal Beauty Med Spa — started as a medical device company to treat a condition called lymphedema (chronic swelling).
Compression therapy works by using controlled pressure to increase the blood flow in the legs so that blood will move more smoothly and efficiently to the heart. This increased blood flow also helps to increase oxygen delivery within the body. This increased oxygen can lead to increased healing speed, faster recovery from injury, lessened pain, and improved athletic performance.
Benefits of Compression Therapy
People, whether they are athletes or not, have been suiting up in futuristic-looking suits to receive the benefits of compression therapy. Long before these suits existed, people have worn compression garments during and after exercise including compression stockings and arm sleeves. The benefits of this therapy, which are essentially the benefits of improved blood flow, include:
- Reducing swelling and inflammation
- Speeding up muscle recovery
- Preventing delayed-onset muscle soreness
- Relieving muscle pain
- Improving athletic performance
- Increasing flexibility and range of motion
- Removing exercise-related wastes, like lactic acid
- Decreasing muscle fatigue
What is the NormaTec Pulse?
NormaTec Pulse is a product used by our team at Internal Beauty Med Spa. There is a full-body suit that covers the legs, hips, and arms as well as options for just the individual areas depending on your needs.
This technology uses air compression to fill the leg, hip, or arm suits with compressed air that presses on the body. A mobile device can be used to introduce the perfect amount of air so that you receive the right amount of pressure. This added pressure to your limbs will help to increase your circulation and is perfect for a warm-up pre-workout for athletes and to help recover post-workout.
