This approach emulates the natural muscle pumps and unidirectional valves found in the legs through biomimicry.

How Compression Therapy Works

Leg compression therapy uses a patented pulse technology, whereby limbs get squeezed in timed intervals. This therapy eradicates the lactic acid from your limbs quite effectively throughout a session, helping the body detox and reduce inflammation. It feels great, especially after a long day on your feet or after a run.

NormaTec’s pneumatic pressure system works on your muscles like no other device. Starting at the bottom of the leg and gradually moving higher before releasing the pressure, the overlap design ensures that no part of your limb misses out on the massage benefits.

Normatec has designed the devices never to squeeze too hard to become uncomfortable. When you visit Zen Om, we will ensure you get the desired compression level.

The concept for the hips and arms devices is similar and very effective! We want to ensure we are targeting the body parts that you need a little extra loving for!

What happens when I come in for my first session?
  1. Zen Om will welcome you to the recovery room, featuring our NormaTec Boots. There are 3 x King Single Reclining Massage Chairs in this studio.
  2. A team member will show you how to recline and adjust the Chair to your comfort.
  3. With the chair reclined and your feet up, we will help you get your legs into the Compression boots, ensuring that they are placed on just right and that you are comfortable wearing them.
  4. There are seven levels of compression available. Most people introduced to the NormaTec pants will be comfortable with a setting of 5 or 6. A Zen Om team member will help you determine the best compression setting for your needs.
  5. Sequences start at the toes and move up the leg once the boots begin their program.
Why was this type of compression technology created?

NormaTec Leg Compression therapy was initially created to help medical patients suffering from severe circulatory conditions. It has also been one of the most effective tools for athletes requiring rapid recovery.

Are you COVID compliant?

Yes, we have conducted complete COVID risk assessments, follow all the government guidelines, use the appropriate PPE and sanitize after each session.

How do you maintain your compression boots?

We ensure that the NormaTec compression boots we have in-house are cleaned between clients. They are wiped down with a damp, clean cloth and then dried with a fresh sanitized cloth.

When should I use the NormaTec Recovery Boots?

The NormaTec Recovery boots are an excellent addition to your regular training regime. For optimal results, mainly if you are an athlete or physically active 4-5 times a week, you should come in to gain NormaTec sports and recovery benefits. Before (pre-workout) to warm up the muscles, increase range of motion and minimize injury. Most people coming in for a pre-workout session will have the intensity level set to “moderate” and use the NormaTec boots for approximately 20 minutes.

Using the NormaTec boots after an intense workout will significantly speed up your recover process. This allows you to train harder and reap the rewards!
