5 Ways Normatec Compression Therapy Benefits Your Health

Elixir has introduced the Normatec Recovery System to its menu of massage offerings, and we’re so excited to share its many benefits with you!


Here are 5 important ways Normatec can help you:


  1. Improved Circulation: Normatec compression therapy helps to improve circulation by increasing the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the muscles. This helps to reduce muscle fatigue and soreness, as well as improve overall performance. 

Good circulation is important for overall health and well-being. It helps to ensure that oxygen and nutrients are delivered to all parts of the body, while also helping to remove waste products. Good circulation helps to regulate body temperature, reduce inflammation, and improve organ function. It also helps to prevent blood clots and other cardiovascular problems. Good circulation is essential for proper healing and recovery from injury or illness. Poor circulation can lead to a variety of health issues, including fatigue, numbness, pain, swelling, and even organ damage.

  1. Faster Recovery: Normatec compression therapy can help speed up recovery time after a workout or injury by reducing inflammation and swelling in the affected area. This can help athletes get back into their training routine faster and with less pain.

Post-workout recovery is critically important because it helps the body to repair and rebuild muscle tissue, replenish energy stores, and reduce inflammation. It also helps to reduce the risk of injury and illness, as well as improve performance in future workouts. During exercise, muscles are broken down and need time to recover. During this recovery period, the body repairs and rebuilds muscle tissue replenishes energy stores, and reduces inflammation. This process is essential for athletes to reach their peak performance levels (our Relief Balm is also a must-have for pre and post-workout optimization). Finally, post-workout recovery can help improve performance in future workouts. When athletes give their bodies enough time to rest and recover after a workout session, they can perform better in their next session due to increased energy levels and improved muscle strength. This can help them reach their fitness goals faster and more effectively.

  1. Reduced Risk of Injury: Normatec compression therapy can help reduce the risk of injury by providing support to the muscles and joints during exercise or activity.

Providing that targeted compression to the muscles and joints helps to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and increase flexibility. The pulsing action of the Normatec system works to flush out lactic acid and other metabolic waste products that can build up in the muscles after exercise (or after receiving a Cryoslimming service). This helps to reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, which can otherwise lead to injury. Additionally, Normatec’s massage-like action helps to loosen tight muscles and tendons, which can help prevent overuse injuries. Normatec’s compression technology helps to improve proprioception (the body’s ability to sense its position in space) which can help athletes move more efficiently and with better form, reducing their risk of injury.


  1. Improved Mobility: Normatec compression therapy can help improve mobility by increasing flexibility in the muscles and joints. This can help individuals move more freely and with a greater range of motion, which can lead to improved performance and reduced risk of injury.

Physical mobility is so important for our general health because it helps us to stay active and fit. Regular physical activity can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and obesity. It can also help improve balance, coordination, strength, flexibility, and endurance. It’s also critical to our mental health. Being able to move around freely can help reduce stress levels and improve mood. Mobility is a key component of our overall quality of life.

  1. Enhanced Performance: Normatec compression therapy can help enhance performance by improving circulation, reducing fatigue, and increasing flexibility in the muscles and joints. This can lead to improved power output, speed, agility, and endurance during physical activity or sports performance.

Physical performance is important for athletes because it allows them to reach their peak potential in their sport by improving their speed, agility, strength, power, and endurance. This makes them more competitive in their sport and gives them an edge over their opponents. Enhanced physical performance is also important to anyone who still wants to stay active and healthy. It does this by increasing their energy levels, improving their cardiovascular health, and reducing the risk of injury. Overall, enhanced physical performance is important for every body because it helps improve overall health and well-being while also providing a sense of accomplishment.
