COMPRESSION
THERAPY

Increases blood flow, lowers lactic acid and can reduce the experience of pain following exercise.

Reduce fluid build up, deep massage of muscles, remove toxins, reduce muscle tension, increase mobility, boost circulation.

Our Norma-tec compression suits are malleable and inflatable, worn over and around the arms, torso, legs and feet, either individually or in combination. The suit is pumped full of air, and then releases on a regular cycle. This squeezes fluid and blood out of muscles, and then allows fresh blood to rush in. The result is that built-up fluid and metabolites are expelled and muscles are flooded with nutrient filled, oxygenated blood.

The treatment takes 30 minutes, and just the process of sitting still and being ‘massaged’ in this way seems to also have a calming effect on our patients who look very relaxed at the end of a treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Recovery Jungle puts you in the driver’s seat of your body’s restoration.
HOW DOES A COMPRESSION SUIT WORK?

A compression suit is designed to deliver waves of pressure to arms, legs and torso. These waves of compression are designed to:

  • Boost circulation: Accelerating tissue repair by delivering more oxygen and nutrients to and removing lactic acid and other by-products of exercise.
  • Increase lymphatic function: Accelerating the process of removing toxins and waste through the lymphatic system.
  • Relieve muscle tension: Leading to increased flexibility and decrease the likelihood of injury by targeting tight, tense muscles and fascia.
WHO SHOULD USE A COMPRESSION SUIT?

Compression suits are used by elite athletes and serious amateurs. The boots are perfect for runners and the suit is for athletes who stress all parts of their bodies.

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

We recommend shorts or leggings and a singlet.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET TREATMENTS?

This is up to you, based on the intensity of your training. It might be something you use occasionally if you feel you need it, or use regularly to optimise high intensity training performance and outcomes.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING ALONG WITH ME?

No, we provide towels and water, but you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

CAN I LISTEN TO MY MUSIC OR AUDIO?

Yes, but you need to bring headphones for the comfort of others.
