Recover Faster with Compression Therapy
What is compression therapy?
Compression therapy can help anyone who spends long stretches of time sitting, standing and engaging in any repetitive movements. The variety of compression therapy attachments we offer can quickly address circulatory issues in all areas of the body – which promotes healing.
During a 30 minute compression session, our compression attachments begin rhythmically inflating and deflating removing inflammation, swelling and waste product while promoting healthy blood flow. Benefits include improved range of motion, enhanced recovery, decreased inflammation, relief of muscle aches and pains, and overall relaxation and comfort. Compression therapy is easy, painless, safe and convenient. Legs, arms/shoulders and hip/lower back attachments are available.
Why Try Compression Therapy?
Whatever your fitness level, take it up a notch. By delivery pulsing compression, gradient pressure and distal release, compression therapy will provide your muscles with everything they need to recover.

A Brief History of Compression Therapy
In 1998, rehabilitation physician and Ph.D. bioengineer Dr. Laura F. Jacobs developed the NormaTec Pneumatic Compression Device. By engineering equipment that promoted blood circulation in the body, she was able to enhance the health of patients whose circulation is compromised by disease, as well as those whose bodies are recovering from surgery, radiation treatment or trauma. It wasn’t long before athletes discovered that this treatment could increase their athletic performance.

What do I wear?
We recommend wearing loose or comfortable clothing during your session. You will sit in our chair with an ottomon or our massage table (for hip attachments). One of our staff will assist you into the attachments and your session will start. Your legs will be kept elevated so that gravity also helps in circulating the body fluids. Each compression therapy session is approximately 30 minutes. It is a non-invasive procedure. However, you might feel a little bit of pressure. If you experience any kind of pain, you should notify an Imagine Float staff member immediately. We can reduce the pressure to a level that is more comfortable for you. Close your eyes and relax. Arms/shoulders and hip attachments also available for use.
What do I bring?
While we do our best to provide everything that you will need during and after your treatment, you may want to bring some items that will add to your comfort and relaxation. If you want to listen to music or watch something on your digital device, we require that you bring your headphones.
