What are the Benefits of Pressure Therapy or Presotherapy

Non-invasive beauty treatments are a great way to enhance our appearance, with specific treatments for certain problem areas which can make us look better and feel more confident.

If your aim is to reduce cellulite and be much healthier, then pressure therapy is an excellent choice. So at OneHowTo we are going to show you what this involves and what the benefits of pressure therapy are.

Steps to follow:

Pressure therapy is a technique that involves a professional massage in order to improve circulation and get various benefits. This treatment is not done by hand, instead your limbs or areas such as the abdomen or buttocks are treated by putting on a special presotherapy suit which is attached to a presotherapy machine. The pressure suit surrounds the target part of body and it will apply pressure movements onto the areas to be treated.

The goal is to stimulate circulation and lymph to eliminate what our body doesn't need. The duration of treatment may vary, but typically it lasts for 20-30 minutes.

What are the Benefits of Pressure Therapy or Presotherapy - Step 1

One of the most important benefits of pressure therapy is to boost circulation in order to promote the elimination of toxins and reduce problems such as fatigue and heaviness in the limbs or varicose veins.

It is highly recommended for pregnant women and people with circulation problems.


It is a great ally to lose weight because the massage helps stimulate the lymphatic system and, like lymphatic drainage it works to eliminate toxins. Pressure therapy along with diet and exercise help us achieve a better figure.


Because of these benefits, it is also possible to reduce cellulite through pressure therapy treatments, improving the appearance of orange peel. At the same time it is a good complement to tone up your muscles and joints, which will be further enhanced if you exercise regularly.


It helps to relax our muscles relieving spasms, pain and trauma. At the same time pressure therapy is good to fight muscle fatigue, so it is a treatment also used by professional athletes.


When applied on the abdominal area, apart from improving muscle tone, the movements also promote intestinal transit, helping to fight constipation problems.


Pressure therapy is a great treatment for weight loss and to help us feel much healthier, lighter and full of energy.
