Although the name sounds quite concerning, Vacuum Therapy has been rising in the health and beauty world as everyone is concerned about their beauty and wants to look better. In this article, we will talk about vacuum therapy, why it’s helpful, where you can do it, and the necessary steps you should take.
What is a Vacuum Therapy:
Vacuum therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses the impact of vacuum on the human body, which leads to an increase in microcirculation in the tissues and has a detoxifying and anti-inflammatory effect. This is used for all pathological forms of vascular diseases of the legs (Raynaud’s disease, Buerger’s disease, arteriosclerosis of the lower limbs), all stages of lymphatic or venous insufficiency (lymphedema, leg edema, cellulite).
Vacuum therapy device: application, features, classification
The most common use of the vacuum therapy device from Bella Vacuum is for beauty treatments. Vacuum massage, which has both cosmetic and therapeutic effects on the skin and body, is very effective in eliminating pain in the back, hips, neck, collar area, shoulder, and lumbar zone and solves the problems associated with cellulite well.
Due to the vacuum, there is a stronger rush of lymph and blood to the tissues and organs. This stimulates the recovery and metabolic processes in the body, strengthens the contractile functions of the muscles, increases the mobility of the ligamentous apparatus, the skin becomes elastic, and improves its tone.
The vacuum therapy device can create a lymphatic drainage effect in conditions like cellulite. This device can quickly and painlessly relieve pain syndromes in a whole list of different diseases and contribute to their prevention.
The vacuum therapy machine can also be used in medical institutions as therapeutic equipment by a physiotherapist, cosmetologist, or ordinary people. Still, you need to follow training from the supplier. The peculiarity of this device is the possibility of creating first a reduced and then an increased pressure to stimulate the lymphatic and venous blood circulation by putting the tube on the body.
This results in a suction effect that causes the blood to flow to the action site, which accelerates the removal of toxins and the circulation of substances.
The carbon dioxide content is markedly reduced in the peripheral tissues, and the oxygen level is increased. As a result, the capillary metabolic activity increases by increasing the intensity of blood flow and eliminating blood stagnation in the veins.
Classical vacuum therapy devices can be classified into three categories according to their capabilities and functions:
- vacuum massage (chest, body, face);
- vacuum-roller massage (body, face);
- vibration massage (chest, body).
The complex effect of vacuum therapy is reduced to the following results:
- Improvement of microcirculation of the skin;
- Elimination of congestion;
- Excretion of toxins;
- Launch of processes of regeneration and rejuvenation of tissues;
- Stimulation of metabolism and oxygen exchange in deep tissue layers and interstitial area;
- Lifting the buttocks and slimming the abdomen;
- stimulation of the contractile function of muscles;
- Restoration of ligament mobility;
- Facelift of the face, improvement of the skin condition, an increase of its elasticity.
