NormaTec Compression Therapy
Dynamic Compression Therapy
Normatec is dynamic compression which can be applied to the legs, arms or lower back. Normatec sleeves utilize sequential pulse technology—this is compression that “pulses” upward toward the heart. Normatec enhances lymphatic drainage, blood circulation and oxygenation throughout the body—not just in the treated areas!!
Normatec is a computer controlled dynamic compression system which utilizes inflating pumps. The device has many separate chambers which are positioned around the treatment area. As the pulsing compression moves through these chambers venous, oxygen and lymphatic flow is increased leading to significant detoxification of lactic acid, inflammation, bloating and swelling. Many clients experience relief from sore, tired legs; many clients also experience a reduction in trapped toxins, cellulite, bloating and edema.
Normatec can also help to slim and detoxify the body by reducing inflammation, bloating and swelling throughout the body. At Chill Cryotherapy we utilize Normatec treatments after all of our ChillBody fat-freezing treatments. ChillBody treatment release fat cell contents into the blood and lymphatic system—Normatec helps to remove this mobilized fat out of the area to be detoxified through the liver. Normatec is a great complement to a fat and weight loss protocol because it can help to define and slim treated areas!

- Presence of any pain or numbness
