At all Doctor Life massagers the massage pressure is adjustable.
In low-pressure massage ( 20-60 mmHg) the device stimulates the lymphatic system and the circulatory system through legs , arms and /or hips / belly with massaging cuffs filled with air . The improvement of the discharge of lymph fluid will cause a decrease of the accumulation of moisture in an arm or leg . Because of the improvement of the bloodcirculation and lymphatic drainage of moisture at the same time, the immune system is enhanced and one is less susceptible to all kinds of diseases .
The middle massage pressure ( 60-130 mmHg) is intended for the blood circulation. It stimulates especially the deeper muscles (hence the higher pressure ) which stimulate veins. Also for drainage of toxins.
In the high-pressure or sports massage (130 – up to 240 mmHg), the most important effect is the reduction of the muscle tension and loosening of hard tissue. By increased bloodflow through the body nutrients can be better supplied . Fluid accumulation due to muscle damage will diminish .
