By employing alternating pulsed pressure changes at values lower than the average atmospheric pressure, circulation and lymphatic flow improve, and oxygenation accelerates, consequently expediting the transport of oxygen to specific tissue areas.
This method is also used for active athletes to expedite the breakdown of lactates, namely the salts of lactic acid.
