I highly recommend those experiencing any tension or pain in their legs to give compression therapy a few sessions to see if it'll help you too!"            - Cameron N


Professional athletes, trainers, and physical therapists have long understood and relied on the power of compression. But now everyday people are beginning to use compression as an integral part of their wellness plans

​What Is Compression Therapy Used for?

Relieves Pain

Compression often relieves pain. When  technology compress the muscles, it forces the blood back towards your heart. This makes your muscles feel lighter and also relieves discomfort.

Treating Problematic Veins

When blood pressure increases inside your veins, they become twisted and swollen. This makes it harder for blood to travel back to the heart. These veins are visible under the skin. If the pressure continues to build in your veins, the fluid that builds up can create a venous ulcer. CT, which improves circulation, can help each of these issues.

Improved Athletic Performance

Professional athletes, trainers, and physical therapists have long understood and relied on the power of compression. But now even everyday people are beginning to use compression as an integral part of their regular workouts and recovery.

Treating Lymphedema

Sometimes people experience swelling in an arm or leg or in the head and neck after cancer-related surgeries involving one of the lymph nodes. The body cannot drain lymphatic fluid from that part of the body any longer. Compression Therapy is used to help drain the affected area and promote recovery.


Pregnant women and anyone who has a job that requires them to stand for long periods of time, knows how hard it can be to keep your legs healthy and prevent swelling. Compression is a great option for anyone who spends long hours standing on their feet.


By compressing the veins, blood moves faster through your system. Metabolic waste that builds in the tissues are carried away in the veins and back toward the heart. CT helps drain these metabolic wastes more efficiently, which helps speed the recovery process. This is true of both recovering after an intense workout and after surgeries.

Increase Flexibility & ROM

Compression keeps muscles warm, which is a bonus for athletes. When your muscles are warm, they become more flexible and have a wider range of motion.

Reduce Veins

Scientists have found that patients can dramatically reduce the appearance of visible veins by regularly using compression therapies. Since these veins are caused when pressure builds in the veins, compression reduces the built-up pressure and helps blood flow more smoothly.

Increase Oxygen Levels in Muscles

Medical studies have found that compression increases the amount of oxygen found in muscles. Oxygen is fuel for your muscles, and it also helps heal any soreness after exertion.

Blood Flow

Business travelers quickly learn of the aches and pains that come with poor circulation on long flights. Compression can also help in preventing blood clots and deep vein thrombosis which can occur during long flights.
