Pressotherapy at Balanced Body Spa is performed using a specialist B.B.S. Slimming System body suit comprised of individual compartments and the use of pressured air. As the air is pumped through the compartments, pressure is firmly applied to certain areas of the body to encourage the lymphatic flow. Pressotherapy is 800 times stronger than a manual massage, which can make it the perfect treatment to follow cellulite, inch loss and fat reduction treatments and enhance the results.

All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our treatment co-ordinators to discuss your treatment options.

The Manual Lymphatic Drainage(MLD) massage is a well-known SPA treatment for well-being. The Pressotherapy Machine is accordingly invented and it is even more powerful than the manual treatment. The machine inflates the suit that is wore by clients.

It would generate up to 100mmHg or even 120mmHg pressure on the body. The pressure will run within the pressotherapy suit along with the designed route. Clients will feel like a real massage on the body. You can even adjust the frequency, faster or slower, which a man’s hand cannot always do manually.

The pressotherapy high pressure massage will help with the weight loss and cellulite reduction since it improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which helps to speed up the toxin and excess fat removal. The pressotherapy lymphatic drainage massage can also smooth the skin and even the cellulite bumps and lumps so that it is less noticeable.

This pressotherapy machine also utilizes far infrared technology. The far infrared body wrap heating can dissolve fat and promote the fat metabolism. The far infrared also improve the blood circulation and nutrition/oxygen transportation. It is a dry sauna technique. So after that, the whole body will feel refreshing and energetic. The specific of far infrared technology is that it doesn’t heat up the surface of the body. Instead, it heats up the inner body that is 4 to 7 cm beneath the skin. This is wonderful because this is where the stubborn fat deposit and main blood vessels locate.
