NormaTec Recovery System
Recovery is an integral part of every athlete's training which is why we are excited to offer the NormaTec recovery system in our Cardiff clinic.
Dynamic air compression effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs and arms, enhancing the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs after an intense workout. Created by a physician bioengineer (MD, PhD), the Normatec line combines dynamic air compression with a patented Pulse massage pattern that employs three key techniques—pulsing, distal release, and gradients. Studies show it can help relieve muscle aches and/or pain and temporarily increase circulation resulting in increased flexibility and range of motion, injury prevention, and accelerated recovery time.
The patented and proven NormaTec Recovery system uses compressed air to massage your legs, mobilize fluid and speed recovery - helping athletes recover faster between training runs, workouts and after race day. Each session involves a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape. The treatment cycle then begins by compressing your feet and legs in a pulsing fashion, starting with your feet and moving up your legs, massaging the muscles and mobilizing fluid. Following hard workouts, the result is often both reduced soreness and a shorter recovery time
Pricing: 50p/minute (for a maximum of 60 minutes) for an in-clinic session. (NB - we offer 15mins free of charge post Alter-G sessions)
