#CHIC BODY TREATMENTS

PRESSOTHERAPY

Pressotherapy is similar to a lymphatic drainage massage, but while massage is performed by hand, pressotherapy is administered by a machine that dispenses the correct amount of pressure every time.  It is a procedure that helps with lymphatic drainage, thereby potentially slimming the look of the arms and legs (because they carry less fluid), easing aches and pains, and detoxifying the body. It uses an air pressure machine to inflate a suit that squeezes your arms, legs, or abdomen in a rhythmic motion, similar to a massage. 

Pressotherapy´s benefits:
Pressotherapy stimulates the body’s lymphatic system. When it’s functioning optimally, the lymphatic system transports lymph, a fluid that contains white blood cells to help fight infection.
Possible benefits of pressotherapy include:
• relaxed muscles and fewer aches
• reduction in appearance of cellulite
• reduction of swelling and stiffness in the limbs
• removal of toxins
• toned and firm skin
• stronger immune system due to lymph moving properly.

Pressotherapy is generally considered safe for adults of all ages. However, If you’re pregnant, have recently had surgery, or have other health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, or fever, always talk to a doctor before getting pressotherapy. If you’ve recently broken a bone or have osteoporosis or another bone condition, you should also check in with a doctor to make sure this treatment is not too intense on the injury.

ELECTROSTIMULATION (EMS)

Electrostimulation (EMS) uses electrical pulses to mimic the action of signals coming from neurons (cells in your nervous system). These mild electrical currents target either muscles or nerves.
E-stim therapy sends signals to targeted muscles to make them contract. (Flexing your biceps is a form of muscle contraction.) By causing repeated muscle contractions, blood flow improves, helping repair injured muscles.
Those muscles also improve their strength through repeated cycles of contraction and relaxation. E-stim can also “train” muscles to respond to the body’s natural signals to contract.
This repetitive contracting and relaxing of the muscle has the effect of:
• Increasing circulation (blood flow) to the affected tissue area, which aids in repair.
• improving strength by flexing and working weakened muscles.
• slowing the process of muscle atrophy by strengthening weakened or unused muscles.
• adapting (training or “educating”) muscle fibers to certain patterns of response (e.g., contracts the fibers that are responsible for force, which results in building strength).
