With top of the line tools and powerful sports-based education, our practice members recover quickly, avoid injury and always perform at their best!

In compression therapy, we focus on three main goals to enhance health and performance:

1. Increase blood flow

Increased blood flow brings nutrients and oxygen to tissues while at the same time carrying away any junk your body may be storing.

2. Enhance lymphatic drainage

The lymphatic system helps maintain fluid balance in the body by taking toxins from tissues and depositing them in the bloodstream. It also helps defend the body against infection by supplying disease-fighting lymphocytes.

3. Break down adhesions/restriction/scar tissue in the body

Decreasing restrictions throughout the body and reducing trigger points in fascia and muscles is one of the most elemental steps in improving performance and general health. When you move well you feel well!


Compression Boots

Compression therapy is undeniably on the rise in rapid recovery! Athletes all over the globe are turning to this style of treatment to help decrease the accumulation of waste products and fluid in muscles after exercise. Increased waste in tissues can cause a decrease in performance and an increase in muscle fatigue. These elements must be removed via the venous and lymphatic system to recover the muscle efficiently.
Not only do we find our athletes LOVING the compression boots in our office, but anyone and everyone who works on their feet all day or carries tension in their arms or legs. If you struggle with poor circulation or are simply looking for a deeper way to de-stress, you can benefit from compression therapy. The Recovery Lounge offers both compression sleeves for arms and legs. For true benefits, sessions run anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 and can be utilized both before or after activity. Why not take a load off, throw on your favorite show and flood your tissues with healthy oxygen and nutrients to reboot for the next day!

Its unique waveform provides pain relief, fast flush of post-workout chemical buildup, activation of muscles that may lag during activity and increase in blood flow. With settings for deep pain relief and muscle pump, there’s no other electrical therapy quite like it for recovery!
