How the Pneumatic Compression Massager Works
You put your legs, torso and one arm into “body gloves” and program the equipment for a pressure level that is completely comfortable for you. An alternating rhythm of inflation and deflation, in the body glove, moves up the legs and torso, compressing the muscles to aid in the removal of excess fluid from the tissues as in a massage treatment. Don’t be surprised if you fall blissfully asleep during your pneumatic compression treatment.

What is Lymph Fluid and Why Should You Care?
Did you know that you have as much lymph fluid as blood in the body? Lymph is the system that carries the waste materials away from the cells, while the blood brings in the nutrients to the cells. Stagnation of lymph fluid means your cells are exposed to a more toxic environment and they become less efficient at what they are meant to do. In other words, you begin to look and feel toxic.
Why Lymph Drainage is so Important?
Some people have problems clearing stagnant lymph fluid from their system. This leads to uncomfortable tissue swelling, especially in the legs and ankles, and if not dealt with it can have dangerous health consequences. This condition is called lymph edema and can also occur after surgery.
If not properly dealt with, stagnant lymph can lead to inflammation, infection and can form excessive connective tissue. It is important not to allow stagnant lymph to progress to fibrotic change because at that point pneumatic compression has limited usefulness.
Early regular treatment with pneumatic compression will go a long way towards maintaining vibrant health into old age. When you consider the cost of regular treatments by a massage therapist trained in lymphatic drainage, this equipment will pay for itself very quickly.

I am using the pneumatic compression unit in my medical spa following endermologie and laser treatments. It is effective for lymphatic drainage as well as muscle soreness and just feels like a great massage. As a business owner, I have to say that dealing with Albert has been an absolute pleasure.
