Pressotherapy for toxins removal and lymphatic drainage

Pressotherapy in Dublin 7 Smithfield

Why toxins removal and lymphatic drainage are so important

The older we are, the more toxins are trapped and build up in our cells. Body fluids become thicker, our constant renewal process slows down and self-cleaning become more difficult. It’s down to the lymphatic system which plays a fundamental role in clearing the immune system from the toxins in the body. It’s important to know that an effective liver restoration and tissue detoxification is dependent on both: the immune and lymphatic systems. Unfortunately poor lymphatic function promotes toxin accumulation. That is why is it essential to help and stimulate toxin removal process via external and non-invasive treatments. Pressotherapy is one of the most effective and without side effects methods to improve blow flow, oxygenation and body cleaning that has huge possitive impact on the whole body.


What is Pressotherapy

Pressotherapy is a method for blood circulation enhancement, lymphatic massage and cellulite reduction. Pressotherapy is also known as alternate or air compression therapy or pneumatic compression therapy.

It is provided by special equipment that comprises inflatable boots that rhythmically inflate and deflate in order to pump lymph in the lymphatic vessels and blood in the veins of the legs towards the heart. It also contains special computer that controls compression system to inflate a sleeve applied to a limb so an automatic pressure gradient modulation provides a gentle effective lymphatic drainage. It is a mechanised lymphatic drainage technique that fights water retention by applying intermittent compression on one or more parts of the body - typically the legs, stomach or sometimes arms.

This is a non-invasive treatment that lasts around 30min and provides incredible benefits for the whole body if it’s done on a regular basis. Already a 20 minute treatment is an equivalent to a 15 mile walk from lymph and drainage improvement perspective.


Please wear comfortable clothes (cotton t-shirt, leggins, tracksuit pants) – this is fully clothed treatment. We provide also disposable trousers for the pressotherapy session.


Pressotherapy is used for:

  • An increase of the lymph flow and blood circulation on the whole legs, it provides immediate leg comfort and lightness
  • To enhance an extra-cellular fluid clearance
  • To reduce bloating, swelling and cellulite
  • To alleviate leg fatigue and improves oxygen flow throughout the whole body
  • To combine with other body contouring / anti-cellulite treatments for quicker toxins removal and more satisfied effects
  • To support kidney function (poor filtration and a hydro saline imbalance, can lead to possible accumulation of large quantities of fluid in the tissues)
  • To support healthy heart function (problems can lead to tapered oedemas because of an inadequate pumping effect)
  • To help with premenstrual oedema (oedema during menstrual periods is linked to the fluid-retaining effects of estrogen and progestin, pressure therapy during the periods quickly solves the problem)
  • To Improve loss of muscle tone in immobilized patients

After pressotherapy treatment

After the treatment, some clients may feel gentle muscle pain or notice red spots on the skin. That’s a normal reaction that may appear. Muscle sensation depends on the strength of the pressure used during the pressotherapy session and it will disappear very shortly. Red spots may last 3 up to 4 days in some cases. Chinese traditional medicine define it as dispelled toxin. If a person has a lot of toxins in the body, she/he may have some red spots after pressotherapy or deep tissue massage. If the client has a good metabolism activation, there won’t be any skin reaction or only few red spots that will disappear faster, meaning the body is able to remove toxins from the skin surface quicker and more effective.
