About Compression Therapy
What is Compression Therapy?
Who doesn’t love a good massage? Similar to a massage, NormaTec compression therapy applies pressure on the legs and other areas of the body. This releases tension, increases blood flow, and reduces pain and soreness. Traditional compression therapy used therapeutic socks or stockings made with elastic, which constrict to allow veins to loosen. In 1998, bioengineer and rehabilitation physician Dr. Laura F. Jacobs created NormaTec® dynamic compression technology to treat patients with circulatory related disorders. Today, NormaTec’s patented compression technology is revolutionizing the recovery for FitLore users.

The NormaTec Process
NormaTec uses compressed air to massage your arms, legs or hips. In a 20- to 30-minute session, the patented technology first molds to your body shape, then compresses your feet, hands or upper quads, before working its way up your limb. The massage pattern is also patented, and based on physiology. Like with a traditional massage, it compresses in a pulsing manner and then releases.
