Lymphatic drainage to eliminate liquids and toxins.

Pressotherapy is a medical and beauty treatment that promotes lymphatic  drainage by using air pressure on different parts of the body. By alternating between compression and decompression, it effectively stimulates the lymphatic system.

Benefits of pressotherapy:

  • You can enjoy many positive health and beauty benefits from applying pressure waves. You will see improvements to circulatory system disorders and venous issues like varicose veins, tired legs and heavy limbs.
  • If you are thinking about getting fit and losing weight, this type of body sculpting treatment may be suitable for you. By combining pressotherapy, diet and exercise, you will see better results in less time. You can also treat swelling or drain the toxins, fats and liquids that cause cellulite. You will recover skin elasticity, increasing oxygen flow to the body’s tissues and helping them regenerate.
  • This body sculpting treatment also stimulates the immune system, building up your defenses against pathogens, and can even help you lower your blood pressure if you have hypertension.
  • Pressotherapy can also help with digestive problems; when the treatment is applied to the abdomen it stimulates bowel transit and relieves constipation issues.
  • Elite athletes also use pressotherapy to improve their physical fitness. It is the perfect complement for toning muscles and joints. But is also relaxes the muscles, reducing muscle fatigue and preventing pain and cramping.
  • Moreover, it strengthens connective issues, alleviates stress and tension and reduces muscle spasms.

What does it do?

It uses special units (leggings, arm sleeves, abdominal belts, etc.) that contain pneumo-compression chambers that inflate thereby generating a controlled compression on the body parts concerned (limbs and abdomen). The various parameters are set and activated by the electronic-mechanical-pneumatic device that supplies the air flow at the right pressure, inflating and deflating the various chambers intermittently and sequentially.

Contraindications :

There are practically no contraindications, but there are cases for which the treatment is not recommended. You should not receive pressotherapy if you suffer from deep vein thrombosis, infections in the areas to be treated, body pain or numbness, if you are a cancer patient or have a pacemaker, if you have heart disease or if you are pregnant. But the treatment would be very useful after giving birth and during postpartum recovery.

Practicing sports is not recommended before or after receiving the therapy.


The Slimwave program includes a powerful infra-red treatment, using infratherapy devices, that reduces visible cellulite.

Cellulite is a skin condition that is difficult to treat. It is usually recognized as an accumulation of fats and excess fluids, which are encapsulated as fat in the collagen and tissues underneath the skin of certain parts of the body. Sufferers know that dieting and exercise may burn up the fat but the “orange peel” look of cellulite will remain.

Infra-red treatment used during a Slimwave session quickly warms up the muscles during the treatment, improving the blood circulation and lymph drainage.

Cells and organs exposed to this thermal infra-red treatment are activated, and as the blood circulation is improved, the blood vessels in the cells are widened. As the metabolic rate is increased, the anti-genes in the body are mobilized. The absorbed heat is distributed through the body by the blood circulation leading to an improvement in the lymph drainage. Where the cellulite is evident, the lymph drainage effect is accelerated and the toxins are flushed from the body.

Infratherapy devices therefore facilitate weight control and contributes to your body slimming.



  • The perspiration effect caused by the high body temperature increases the heart rate and speeds up the blood flow. A 40-min session causes a 600 to 900 calories loss, an equivalent of a 30 minutes run at a marathon runner speed. Infratherapy devices therefore facilitate weight control and contributes to your body slimming.
  • The thermal effect of infratherapy acts on the superficial fat, helping to stimulate the metabolism as well as reduce/eliminate the cellulite and fatty deposits.
  • During an infratherapy session the blood flow increases and the perspiration helps to eliminate toxic metals and pollutants, such as plumb, mercury, zinc and nickel. With an infra-red treatment, it is possible to expel up to 97% of heavy metals in addition to alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, sodium and cholesterol.
  • The infrared thermal effect creates an artificial fever, which in turn activates the immune system. This process, combined with the toxin elimination and waste through perspiration, strengthens the body’s resistance to disease and promotes general health.
  • Infratherapy has antispasmodic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. The infra-red treatment can reach the source of pain in inflammation or sore muscle. It is beneficial for muscle, articulator and rheumatic pain relief, fibromyalgia and tired legs.
