Compression technology speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation, and reduce swelling, and mobilizing waste products such as lactic acid and excess fluids.
What is Compression Therapy?
Like cryotherapy, compression therapy has been around for decades as a medical treatment. In fact, its roots lie in the science of blood flow. Your circulatory system delivers oxygen, nutrients and hormones to every cell in your body. The idea behind compression therapy is that by increasing blood flow to specific parts of the body -- encouraging your body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to those areas -- you can speed up recovery, relieve pain and improve athletic performance.
Compression therapy utilizes controlled pressure created by air inflating the Rapid Reboot device to apply pressure to the arms, legs or hips, depending on the device used. The Rapid Reboot system segmentally compresses from the legs and up to the torso to increase the flow of blood and lymph to heart. By pumping blood from the arteries, veins and lymph systems straight to the heart, the body can efficiently recycle toxins, accumulated fluid and cellular debris to be released by the urine or stool. Simultaneously, this complex compression device removes metabolic wastes such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid, effectively flushing your system of toxins.

Who Should Use Compression Therapy?
Compression technology speeds up your body’s natural healing processes by enhancing blood flow to your muscles to facilitate cellular repair and protein synthesis, boosting lymphatic drainage to relieve inflammation and reduce swelling, and mobilizing waste products such as lactic acid and excess fluids. What you’ll notice is less stiffness and soreness, as well as increased mobility and flexibility.
It’s important to note that the speed at which you recover involves several factors, such as your age, level of fitness, sleep, and diet. No matter your situation, however, Compression Therapy can significantly cut down your recovery time. As a result, intermittent compression devices are ideal for athletes who must constantly recover and heal as they push their bodies to new limits.
Compression Therapy offers a number of benefits to your body. The most widely promoted, of course, is pain relief. One of the ways that this is accomplished is through reducing the swelling in the area, which can be especially helpful for aches and pains. The increased circulation encouraged by Compression Therapy can also promote healing and the heat can reduce stiffness.
Compression Therapy is used in the treatment of many common chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia, lymphatic diseases and overuse, but perhaps the most common use of Compression Therapy is for arthritis pain relief. Because Compression Therapy can help to prevent the development of blood clots it is often recommended for patients following surgery. Talk to your health care provider to determine if Compression Therapy could be an effective solution for treating your pain.
In addition to reducing inflammation and relieving pain, Compression Therapy also has a variety of medical indications, including lymphedema, venous insufficiency, and venous thromboembolism prophylaxis. It can also be applied to other circulation-related issues that stem from varicose veins, diabetes, surgery, injury, etc.
IMPORTANT: While Compression Therapy is safe to use for a variety of applications, please consult your doctor before using Compression Therapy if you know or suspect you may have the following: deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism (blood clot) or edema, thrombophlebitis, inflammation of the skin (e.g., erysipelas, cellulitis), ischemic vascular disease, severe peripheral neuropathy, or related issues and complications.
As a non-drug alternative to medication, compression therapy provides people with an innovative treatment modality for reducing pain and inflammation, increasing blood flow and circulation, reducing exercise-induced soreness, and improving range of motion.
Our state-of-the-art device also provides a systematic Lymphatic Compression Massage. This is a well-researched and proven massage technique used to help break down and discharge fat, toxins, waste, and excess fluids from the body. This therapy can be utilized as a stand-alone treatment. However, best results are achieved when followed immediately with an Infrared Sauna Treatment. The compression suit stimulates your lymph system, moving and suspending toxins within your body, and the Infrared Sauna helps you to sweat out those toxins.
