It is a specific body treatment to improve the circulatory and lymphatic system. It’s used for aesthetic purposes to reduce or eliminate cellulite, but it also promotes lymphatic circulation and decreases fluid retention, two of the most common discomforts among pregnant women.

The pressotherapy consists of applying certain air pressures on the area of the body to be treated. We use boots and a sash that is placed to the patient to exercise alternate compression and relaxation and that act effectively in the lymphatic system. In addition, it promotes the recovery of skin elasticity and facilitates tissue regeneration by increasing the supply of oxygen to tissues.
It does not require anesthesia or hospitalization, and the average time to complete the treatment is 30 minutes per session.
