What is FlowPresso?
It’s a breakthrough, non-invasive natural therapy that enhances overall health and delivers a 3-in-1 sensory treatment, comprising:
This unique combination of therapies releases toxins and puts the body into a ‘rest and restore’ state, working with our physiological processes to switch off fight or flight mechanisms and facilitate healing and repair.
Our physiological processes
We have physiological processes that regulate the body’s involuntary reflexes, like heart rate, body temperature, breathing, and blood pressure. Regular periods spent in a completely relaxed state — as opposed to a fight or flight state — give our body the time and energy it needs to repair, rejuvenate and reset.
Flowpresso® is a unique system that encourages a rest and repair state – the optimum state for the body’s healing processes.
Ours is the only full-body suit available, covering the legs, abdomen, arms, and torso for a systemic therapeutic experience.
There are 22 individual chambers that inflate sequentially – each activating before the previous chamber fully deflates to deliver cyclical and consistent pressure.
Other features include:
• Customisable pressure settings that can be applied to each chamber.
• Two separate pre-programmed modes (sports and relaxation).
• Different cycles that can deliver an individualized experience for each client.
• Velcro fasteners to ensure the suit is comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes.
• Thermotherapy can be delivered separately to each of the four sections.
• Fibre carbon construction for durability and easy cleaning.
• A proprietary nano vibrational technology for improved energy flow.
Flowpresso® delivers compression, thermodynamic heat, and deep pressure simultaneously to encourage the body’s inner systems to activate.
Compression technology was first introduced to medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including circulatory conditions. About 25 years ago, compression was adopted for use in sports medicine in an attempt to improve exercise performance and recovery. The cyclic pneumatic compression within Flowpresso® is delivered to different areas of the body, allowing the body to change how it moves. Compression therapy helps encourage flow within the body and assists with releasing toxins from your system.
Thermodynamic energy, or heat therapy can help with a variety of health issues. Researchers discovered that when heat was applied to local areas or the whole body, it had a sleep-promoting effect. Flowpresso® utilizes thermotherapy in the four primary garment sections to embrace the body with a gentle, healing, warmth, creating a comforting environment that allows the body to finally rest and relax. The Flowpresso® warmth and temperature range are designed to encourage relaxation and sleep, promote circulation, and support an improvement in health and well-being.
Deep pressure therapy
Deep pressure is generally referred to as a form of tactile sensory input, which is delivered by holding, stroking, hugging, swaddling, and squeezing. The technique of Deep Pressure Therapy is often used to calm anxious people – improving their ability to cope. A light touch can be alerting and even agitating to some people, while deep pressure typically has a calming effect on the senses. Flowpresso® applies deep pressure – similar to a hug – to the whole body through each individual chamber, generating a profoundly relaxing effect, allowing the body to calm down and release the daily stress of life.
Flowpresso® utilizes nano vibrational technology to enhance the overall experience and combination of therapies. It delivers a proprietary vibrational frequency, stimulated by the conductivity of body heat. This technology has been shown to increase energy flow and circulation within the body, whilst encouraging repair and restoration.
