What is FLOWpresso®?

It’s a breakthrough, non-invasive natural therapy that enhances overall health which delivers a 3-in-1 sensory treatment, comprising:


This unique combination of therapies releases toxins and puts the body into a ‘rest and restore’ state, working with our physiological processes to switch off fight or flight mechanisms, and facilitate healing and repair.

How does FLOWpresso® work?

We have physiological processes that regulate the body’s involuntary reflexes, like heart rate, body temperature, breathing and blood pressure. Regular periods spent in a completely relaxed state — as opposed to a fight or flight state — give our body the time and energy it needs to repair, rejuvenate and reset.  

Flowpresso® is a unique system that encourages a rest and repair state – the optimum state for the body’s healing processes.

A typical session

Patients remain fully clothed throughout their 40-minute session (long sleeves and full-length trousers required). 

They are helped into the suit by a technician before the systems’ air pressure and heat cables are connected to a computerised unit and the technician sets initial pressure/heat settings according to the clients needs. 

Once the suit starts to inflate, patients experience a squeezing sensation which should feel similar to a hug, with no discomfort. Next, a gentle heat spreads through the suit that is designed to penetrate the body, not just the surface, to avoid overheating. 

The technician ensures the settings are comfortable for the client, before providing an optional eye mask and headphones to enhance fully immersive relaxation.

How to prepare for your appointment?

Wear clean, loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. You may wish to wear natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, or silk.

For optimal results

Patients experience the best results by investing in a series of regular sessions, rather than taking a one-off approach. This is because the more often we put the body into a parasympathetic state, the more opportunity it has to reset and repair. 

And as we all know, regular relaxation is paramount in maintaining optimal mental health. This is why we recommend at least three sessions, with a minimum of three days in between sessions. 

One session per week is ideal and there is no limit on how many sessions people can have.

Flowpresso® therapies

Flowpresso® delivers compression, thermodynamic heat and deep pressure simultaneously to encourage the body’s inner systems to activate.

Compression therapy

Compression technology was first introduced to medicine to treat a variety of ailments, including  circulatory conditions. About 25 years ago, compression was adopted for use in sport medicine in an attempt to improve exercise performance and recovery. The cyclic pneumatic compression within Flowpresso® is delivered to different areas of the body, allowing the body to change how it moves.  Compression therapy helps encourage flow within the body and assist with releasing toxins from your system.

Thermodynamic therapy (far infrared)

Thermodynamic energy, or heat therapy can help with a variety of health issues. Researchers discovered that when heat was applied to local areas or the whole body, it had a sleep-promoting effect. Flowpresso® utilises thermotherapy in the four primary garment sections to embrace the body with a gentle, healing, warmth, creating a comforting environment that allows the body to finally rest and relax.  The Flowpresso® warmth and temperature range are designed to encourage relaxation and sleep, promote circulation, and support an improvement in health and well-being.

Deep pressure therapy

Deep pressure is generally referred to as a form of tactile sensory input, which is delivered by holding, stroking, hugging, swaddling and squeezing. The technique of Deep Pressure Therapy is often used to calm anxious people – improving their ability to cope. A light touch can be alerting and even agitating to some people, while deep pressure typically has a calming effect on the senses. Flowpresso® applies deep pressure – similar to a hug – to the whole body through each individual chamber, generating a profoundly relaxing effect, allowing the body to calm and release the daily stress of life.

NVT therapy (Nano vibrational therapy)

Flowpresso® utilises nano vibrational technology to enhance the overall experience and combination of therapies.  It delivers a proprietary vibrational frequency, stimulated by the conductivity of body heat.  This technology has shown to increase energy flow and circulation within the body, whilst encouraging repair and restoration.

Understanding NVT

Much like heartbeats and breathing rates, which are examples of physiological rhythms that we can see, feel and measure. Nano vibrations are vibrations that work on a smaller scale, interacting with the foundations and functions of your body at a more refined level through electromagnetic energy waves. This type of therapy changes your energy waves on a fundamental and structural level without being invasive.

How does NVT work?

A nano vibrational therapy disc is added to the bodysuit, situated near the neck during your treatment. The impact of NVT is influenced by the environmental and mental aspects of life. This is where FLOWpresso® comes in; temperature is one of the main environmental influencers of nano vibrations. The far-infrared technology used during your FLOWpresso experience helps stimulate the interaction between the NVT disc and your body. It changes the speed of the nano vibrations within the body, encouraging healing and complimenting the benefits originating from FLOWpresso. Therefore, the NVT disc is positively impacting the energetic systems that may be out of balance within the body, while also supporting the flow and movement being provided by the FLOWpresso experience.

The benefits of using Flowpresso®

Patients and clinicians have reported the following benefits:

  • Increased relaxation
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Improved energy
  • Decreased stress response
  • Faster recovery in sport
  • Faster healing in health
  • Better endurance in sport
  • Weight loss
  • Better mobility

Is there anyone who should NOT use Flowpresso®?

We do not recommend Flowpresso® for people with the following conditions: 

  • Acute inflammation (e.g. phlebitis and thrombosis) 
  • Infection complications (e.g. ulcers) 
  • Pregnancy 
  • Back or hip issues (unless approved by a physician) 
  • Broken bones 
  • Abdominal spinal curvature 
  • Congestive heart failure

If you’re looking for a natural and non-invasive therapy to help you feel better overall, FLOWpresso is for you. This 3-in-1 sensory treatment has a unique combination of therapies that releases toxins, puts the body into a ‘rest and restore’ state, and facilitates healing and repair.

FLOWpresso® is not intended to replace any doctor-approved treatment plan.

Take a deep breath.
Inhale peace.
Exhale happiness.
