Vacuum therapy implies the therapeutic use of air for local treatment. At the same time, a certain pressure is observed, which must necessarily be several times lower than the atmospheric pressure. This method of therapy is often called a can massage, endomassage or decompression.
What is the essence of such a massage?
Vacuum therapy was widely used by oriental physicians who used canonical massage to effectively influence biologically active points in the human body. At all times this technique showed excellent results. Vacuum treatment can be used to prevent diseases of the spine, which are very common these days.
Modern progress every day leads to the fact that people reduced physical work to a minimum and began to move little. As a result, a person faces constant illnesses, a metabolic disorder, and poor circulation of blood. That is why the apparatus of vacuum therapy becomes a unique tool that can directly affect blood microcirculation. Also, for treatment, cans can be used to create the necessary vacuum to draw in the skin and soft tissues.
Benefits of Vacuum Therapy
Vacuum massage is carried out with the help of a professional apparatus or special medical cans. They need to be placed at random in the entire area of the back to strengthen the expected effect. The doctor or specialist who conducts the procedure must select only the active points on the body. Thus, it is possible to quickly and effectively remove nervous tension, fatigue after heavy physical work, and also take care of health improvement of the body.
Vacuum therapy helps to increase fluid flow to the skin from deep tissues. For this reason, red spots and bruises can form on the skin of a person. But this is an absolutely harmless and normal phenomenon, which does not need to be considered a complication. Within a few hours or days, all the redness will disappear.
With the help of this method, the blood vessels of the internal organs are stimulated. Enzymes - biologically active substances are formed at the place where the banks were placed. They are able to quickly activate the internal metabolism and recovery processes. As a result of the regular use of such a massage, you can notice a significant rejuvenation and tissue renewal.
Indications for the use of can massage
Vacuum therapy is prescribed for patients who face back pain in order to restrict the intake of medications. With this method, you can cope with the following diseases and possible pathologies:
- Painful sensations in the back.
- Neurosis or deep depression.
- Neuralgia and neuritis.
- Severe muscular tension.
- Violation of blood circulation in the extremities.
- Stomach ulcer.
- Chronic bronchitis or pneumonia.
Therapy with vacuum can help to cope even with bronchial asthma and enuresis. Due to effective influence on internal tissues and muscles, men will be able to cure impotence, as well as stagnant inflammatory processes of the genitourinary sphere. Often vacuum helped to get rid of dermatosis, urticaria, and also neurodermatitis.
What is vacuum gradient therapy?
This is a method similar to vacuum banks and apparatus, but there is one difference. Vacuum-gradient therapy creates double pressure drops. A vertical gradient is created when the tissue is directly drawn into the jar, while the horizontal gradient is the occurrence of pressure between the containers that have a different diameter of the neck.
When a doctor uses this method for treatment, he gets a different degree of dilution of air to effectively work out deeper layers of tissue. Thus, all the necessary active substances in the blood and cells will be involved. They will be sent to the fast self-healing of the body. Vacuum-gradient therapy is carried out in two ways:
- Banks can be moved to the main massage areas. The skin should be preheated with a hand-held classical massage.
- Vacuum cans are allowed to be moved from one place to another. This massage method will most effectively combat obesity and cellulite on the body.
Features and benefits of interval vacuum therapy
To restore strength and relax after a hard work, you can use the apparatus of interval therapy. During the procedure a person should be exclusively in a horizontal position. The lower extremities and part of the trunk will be located in a special cylindrical chamber. In this case, the total chamber space is hermetically sealed at the waist level. Thanks to a powerful vacuum pump, optimal conditions for dilution of air will be created in this space. After that, the device will cycle through the phases of normal and negative pressure.
Interval vacuum therapy is contraindicated in people who have open infected ulcers, a hernia in acute stages, cancer, kidney failure, pregnancy and acute thrombophlebitis. Today, this method is widely used in the field of space medicine, for the rehabilitation of patients, athletes, as well as for the treatment and restoration of blood vessels.
Application of magnetic vacuum therapy
Thanks to the constant development of progress, vacuum technologies are being improved and expanded. Today, magneto-vacuum therapy is of particular demand, which is considered a progressive method of treatment. With the help of a special device it is possible to achieve the most effective effect on the metabolism of cells in the human body. The process of treatment occurs exclusively at the cellular level and will help many patients get rid of the most serious forms of diseases.
The device for magnetic-vacuum therapy is controlled by a computer system. During the session, complete control over the electromagnetic field is provided, which affects the diseased parts on the body. In this area are areas that need urgent and urgent treatment.
