Speed up your recovery


Compression Therapy

Zipping up compression boots

Compression therapy reduces inflammation and fluid collection stored in your limbs after a heavy workout or a long day sitting at your desk. Compression therapy helps remove lactic acid and improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

This results in relief of aching joints and sore muscles from overuse or from being sedentary for too long. It also means your can push harder in the gym without worrying about being sore for days afterward. 

How does it work?

Dynamic compression is a therapeutic technique used to improve venous circulation. The device consists of an air pump connected to compartmentalized boots and mimics a blood pressure cuff.


When activated, it forces fluids like blood and lymph out of the pressurized area. It increases circulation while eliminating swelling and metabolic waste. With deflation, the veins will be replenished with fresh blood and oxygen.

The Benefits

In professional athletes, intermittent compression has been used to significantly reduced the occurrence and intensity of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), improve flexibility and to speed up recovery.


Typical sessions last 20-30 minutes. You can sit back in our Compression Lounge recliners, relax, read a book, scroll Instagram, watch TV or take a nap. As long as you remain stationary and let compression do its job, the choice is yours. We also offer complimentary tea and our aromatherapy diffuser will take your relaxation to the next level!


Professional athletes use compression to recover faster between training sessions or after intense competitions. Because the pneumatic squeezing increases blood and lymphatic flow in your limbs, it allows for muscles to recover faster from aches or overuse, so athletes can perform at a higher rate of intensity without needing as much rest or recovery in between exercise. Think about the last time you did squats. Were your legs intensely sore for 2-3 days afterwards? With compression, that recovery period is much shorter because the system mimics therapeutic pressure, reducing tenderness and alleviating soreness in the process. 


If you're a runner that struggles with stiff legs or aching knees after every run, or if you find that your ankles and joint swell uncomfortably due to poor circulation, compression therapy can help. It's especially great to speed up recovery after a particularly gruelling workout, or used consistently to help you recover faster between training sessions so you can build muscle and endurance faster.
