This is a massage system similar to the ‘Flowtron’ used in hospitals. By using pockets inflated and deflated with air the area is massaged. Some people prefer this to being touched (although an aromatherapy massage is offered after the treatment with appropriate oils) others enjoy it as an addition.
The therapy gives pressure to the vein, thus promoting the circulation of blood and body fluids. The lymph secretion is increased and the metabolism raised. The benefits continue for another 60 to 90 minutes after treatment has ended.
This type of massage may help, may improve many types of conditions such as
J constipation dissolution
J chronic disease by the venous cause
J Deep Vein Thrombosis, DVT, pneumatic embolism
J fat dissolution
J fluid retention
J improves circulation (boosted circulation can continue for another 60 to 90 minutes

J pregnant woman's limb management
J reduction of athletes cramp / lactic acid build up / toxin build up
J restricted mobility
J rheumatoid arthritis
J varicose veins
J work that involves lost of standing
J work that restricts movement eg working at a desk
Some of those who have been suffering with fluid retention / oedema have felt that they have a new pair of legs afterwards as the circumference of the legs have been reduced by up to 2 inches! (PLEASE NOTE every one is different and there are no guarantees!)
After the air massage has ended, there is the option of a massage with suitable oil, blends.

How can I help you?
The air massage is currently available for feet, legs and thighs. It will soon be available for arms and waist.
The treatment is carried out in your own home and access to a safe power supply is required.
I can offer an appointment in the , , area. Other areas may be possible.
Treatment takes approximately an hour, however you need to put aside 1 ½ hours for setting up etc. I will offer to measure the circumference at various points of legs/feet before an after, as sometimes it is very easy to see the difference, at other times not as much.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
