Lymphatic drainage is inseparable from non-invasive body contouring.  Why?  Our body sculpting treatments kill fat cells but the lymphatic system must remove them from the body.  Thus the most successful body contouring professionals encourage lymphatic booster treatments to accelerate and optimize the results of treatments like ultrasonic cavitation, lipo laser and cryolipolysis.  Pressotherapy technology is a leader in the field of lymphatic drainage treatments.  And you can get certified in Pressotherapy and add Pressotherapy treatments to your menu simply by taking advantage of this quick and affordable online Pressotherapy course.

The lymphatic system and its relationship to non-invasive body contouring

(It’s why you need certification from the Pressotherapy course)


To understand Pressotherapy, you must first understand the lymphatic system and its relationship to non-invasive body sculpting treatments.


You’re familiar with the blood circulatory system.  The lymphatic system is our body’s ‘other circulatory system,’ tasked with the removal of waste, excess fluids, and toxins from the body.


Non-invasive fat reduction and cellulite minimizing body sculpting treatments work by releasing fats, excess fluids, and toxins into the body.  The lymphatic system must remove this debris before you or your client (or anyone) can see the results.


In an ideal world, our client’s bodies would efficiently eliminate the debris left behind from our treatments.  But unfortunately, modern lifestyles actually impede lymphatic performance which often results in less-than-optimum results that take way-too-long to see. That explains why the ultimate guide to the best body contouring courses tells us that we cannot do without lymphatic assist treatments in our body contouring treatment menus.

What our client’s lifestyles must include for efficient lymphatic system function 

  • Movement, i.e. daily walking
  • Adequate water intake
  • Low stress levels
  • Proper nutrition
  • Deep breathing


Modern lifestyles work against healthy lymphatic function

  • Movement - most don’t exercise regularly and sit too much; the lymphatic system has no pump and relies on our muscles to move it along
  • Water (hydration) - most clients do not adequately hydrate; lymphatic fluid (‘lymph’) is composed of 96% water
  • Stress - many of our clients suffer from some form of increased stress or even chronic stress which brings about biochemical changes that are detrimental to lymphatic function
  • Nutrition - poor quality diets increase lymphatic congestion
  • Breathing - deep breathing moves the lymphatic system; most of our clients don’t set the time aside for deep breathing exercises

How to implement lymphatic assist treatments like Pressotherapy in your practice

  • Lymphatic booster treatments enhance lymphatic flow by increasing blood circulation and lymphatic circulation
  • There are a variety of lymphatic booster technologies from which to choose
  • Pressotherapy technology is one of our top two favorite lymphatic booster treatments

  • Clients love Pressotherapy treatments

The Pressotherapy course will provide you with everything you need to implement Pressotherapy into your practice right away!

What is Pressotherapy and how does it work?


Pressotherapy, aka pneumatic compression technology, is a non-invasive computer-controlled and programmed lymphatic massage.  As the name suggests, the treatment involves the application of alternating compression (‘pressing’) and decompression (‘release of pressing’) of air upon the body, which is delivered via the machine’s bodysuit (worn by your client).


The machine inflates and deflates rhythmically to increase both (1) blood flow and (2) lymphatic circulation to and from your client’s lymph nodes.


This dual action accelerates and optimizes the elimination of debris - the fats, toxins, and excess fluids from your client’s body.


The result?  Faster and enhanced visible results following your client’s body sculpting treatments like cavitation, lipo laser, vacuum therapy and radiofrequency...a happy client...and a  successful body sculpting business.
