Bodyflow Treatment

Bodyflow Treatment

What is it?

  • A machine which provides electrostimulation to improve tissue recovery throughout the body.
  • It is available in the clinic and also as a portable machine which can be hired by the week to facilitate faster recovery by allowing you to apply the treatment through the day at home in between treatment sessions.
  • Adhesive pads or suction pads are applied whilst the patient relaxes for the 20 minute treatment duration.

What does it do?

  • Stimulates lymphatic drainage
  • Reduces swelling
  • Reduces delayed onset muscle soreness (‘DOMS’ = muscle pain after exercise)
  • Stimulates blood flow to bring nutrients to nourish tissue and remove harmful waste products

Does it hurt?

  • No, it may feel like a light tingling or for those who prefer a stronger sensation you may feel a twitch in your muscles by increasing the intensity, but there is no pain reported by patients.
