The functioning is simple. Once you have the suit on to perform the pressotherapy, it is connected to a compressed air motor. This motor has different connections for arms, legs and body. The air pressure causes the suit to swell up and press on the fat accumulations. Upon receiving controlled pressure, these fat accumulations start to slowly break.
According to specialists from the sector, pressotherapy works because it’s able to break the fatty tissue through a deep massage. This massage is performed thanks to the pressure that the compressed air exerts over the body.

Well, one of the aims of this method is combating cellulite in women. It’s also suitable for people who want to lose weight even though their skin doesn’t show this type of fatty tissue.
Its functioning is focused on causing the blood flow to have a greater movement, that’s why it eliminates the swelling and inflammation, as well as the heaviness of the legs. It works to eliminate tired legs. Due to the greater blood flow, the areas that are usually harder to reach, like the legs, are favoured.
