Lympha Press® FAQ:
Adapted from the proven principals of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, the Lympha Press® is a compression therapy system that delivers one of the most effective and safe medical lymphatic drainage therapies available to-day.
Lympha Press® uses a garment with air-filled “chambers” to apply a special compression and release sequence to the area being treated. The air chambers are inflated to a precise pressure. They also deflate in a sequence that stimulates the lymphatic capillaries to absorb lymph fluid. The compression and release sequence also stimulates the lymph vessels to propel the fluid out of the area, decongesting it of stagnant lymph fluid. Lymph nodes process the lymph fluid so that it can safely leave the body as urine.
What conditions can Lympha Press® help treat?
Lympha Press® is commonly used to treat lymphedema, a condition in which lymph fluid accumulates in the tissues, causing swelling and discomfort. It can also be used to treat other conditions that affect the lymphatic system, such as venous insufficiency, chronic wounds, and lipedema.
How often should I receive Lympha Press® treatments?
The frequency of Lympha Press® treatments can vary depending on the individual needs of the patient and the severity of the condition being treated. Some patients may experience immediate relief after the first session, while others may require several sessions before noticing significant improvement. We will help determine the best treatment plan for you.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my session?
It is generally recommended that patients wear loose, comfortable clothing to their sessions. Additionally, it is important to inform us of any medication you are taking or medical conditions you have that may affect the treatment.
Can I continue my normal activities after my session?
Yes, patients can typically resume their normal activities after a Lympha Press® session. However, it is important to follow any specific instructions given, such as avoiding certain activities or elevating the treated area.
