How long is the session? Sessions are 20 minutes for any one area to allow for maximum benefits to your lymphatic and circulatory systems. As long as no one is waiting for a chair, you are welcome to try multiple areas.
What happens in the session? Pressure ranges from 1-7. For new clients, we like to set the pressure at a lower setting, allow the air to fill up and then allow for adjustments. When using the boots, we suggest 10 minutes on a lower setting (1-3) for lymphatic drainage followed by 10 minutes on a higher setting *(4-7) for circulation. Many of our clients go straight to the highest setting. For the arms, we suggest starting at Level 3. For the hips, we suggest starting at a Level 1.
Does it hurt? Not if you are injury free. With any injury history, we always like to start low and work up to ensure your comfort. For older clients, the lower settings tend to be more comfortable. For those dealing with brain injuries and/or dementia, we have found the slightest pressure of Level 1 provides a calming affect.
What do I do after the session? Most of our clients end their circuit with compression and a glass of water, coffee or tea!
How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: Compression doesn't necessarily require multiple treatments unless you are dealing with lymphatic or circulatory issues. Otherwise, grab a session when you feel your body needs it!
