Compression Therapy

 Compression therapy improves circulation & reduces inflammation so you can feel better, train harder, and recover faster.

How Compression Therapy Works

 

What Is Compression Therapy?

The concept of compression therapy lies on a simple and efficient mechanical principle: the application of a garment around the leg.

By compressing the limb with graduated compression - strongest at the ankle and decreasing going up the leg - the compression garment helps the venous return, decreases venous pressure, prevents venous stasis and deterioration of venous walls, and efficiently relieves aching and heavy legs by aiding the body in moving blood up the leg against the pull of gravity.

 

How Does Compression Therapy Work?

The principle of this therapy is to exert a controlled pressure on the limb.  The pressure is exerted by the application of a garment on the limb.  Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD) to enhance blood flow and speed recovery, Compression Therapy employs three key techniques to maximize your recovery:

PULSING: Instead of using static compression (squeezing) to transport fluid out of the limbs, Sequential Pulse Technology uses dynamic compression (pulsing). The patented pulsing action that we employ more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout.

GRADIENTS: Veins and lymphatic vessels have one-way valves that prevent fluid backflow. Similarly, Compression Therapy uses hold pressures to keep fluids from being forced in the wrong direction. Because of this enhancement, instead of tapering pressure off, the system can deliver maximum pressure in every zone.

DISTAL RELEASE: Because extended static pressure can be detrimental to the body’s normal circulatory flow, Sequential Pulse Technology releases the hold pressures once they are no longer needed to prevent backflow. By releasing the hold pressure in each zone as soon as possible, each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

How Can Compression Therapy Help Me?

Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery.  You will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing your feet, hands, or upper quad (depending on which attachment you are using). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.

Compression Therapy is an air pressure massage indicated to temporarily relieve minor muscle aches and/or pains and to temporarily increase circulation to the treated areas.

Jen B. says: Shane and Susan are amazing, knowledgable and hands down, the best LMT's in town! I've battled injured for a little over a year and only wish I had met Shane and Susan earlier. Shane has helped me beat a bad case of plantar fascia with cold laser treatment and deep massage. (I tried every possible treatment for PF and cold laser is the only treatment that worked 100%!!) He also helped with manage some inflammation that was building up in my legs from marathon training. Tiger Lily Studios is an essential part of my marathon training plan and I am so thankful for that. Shane and Susan go above and beyond to help their clients manage pain, relieve stress and/or address whatever you may be dealing with. I've been to a lot of massage/body workers around town but no one comes close to providing the services/care that Tiger Lily Studios does.*

Big thanks to Susan and Shane for helping me work through a painful arm injury.

Laura M. says:  They took great care of me and were focused on getting to the source of the problem. I appreciated how they walked me through what they were doing with the trigger point therapy, cold laser therapy and light therapy. I live in San Antonio but plan on going back! *

Shane saved my marathon!

Kevin B. says: Last Monday while completing one of my last workouts before yesterday's California International Marathon, my calf locked up on me. The pain had been building for several weeks and I was hopeful I could make it to the marathon without any issues. Fortunately for me, a friend recommended I get into to see Shane asap so I could still run my marathon this weekend. I was lucky to get an appointment the next morning with Shane. He spent a good hour working out the golf ball size knot in my calf and provided me with cold laser therapy. He gave me instructions to soak my leg in cold,hot, cold water and come back to see him in two days for another round of laser therapy. My calf started to feel much better after the first treatment and was back to 100% by Friday. I was not only able to finish the marathon yesterday, I also met my 3:05 goal. This is my personal best time by over 4mins and I couldn't have done it without Shane! I highly recommend Shane if you're experiencing running pains. I've seen many specialist over the years for running issues and I've never seen immediate results like I did with Shane. Thanks again Shane! *
