BOA Lymphatic Compression
Developed in Poland, the BOA MAX 2 device is the only device in the world that uses algorithms based on Vodder’s manual massage method. It uses air pressure to “squeeze” your body and pump fluids. When activated, the pump fills the air chambers of the compression sleeves to pressurize the tissues forcing fluids, such as blood and lymph, out of the pressurized area. The Boa Max 2 is a medical-grade compression therapy device that was designed according to Dr. Vodder’s methods of lymphatic drainage and offers a highly effective compression therapy treatment.
The compression therapy pants have 12 overlapping chambers in each leg that sequentially fill and flush the lymphatic system with relaxing pressure. The flushing decreases water accumulation in the legs, hips, and buttocks through lymphatic drainage, making legs thinner while tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of cellulite. Superior to manual massage, the pressure is applied throughout the circumference of the leg at much higher pressure delivering and very thorough flush. Athletes use this device to accelerate recovery after strenuous exercise.

How does the BOA affect the body?
BOA peristaltic corporeal massage acts as an “external heart”. It enhances blood circulation by gently applying unidirectional peristaltic pressure on peripheral veins. Blood circulation is improved, the elimination of toxins is facilitated, and fresher oxygen reaches the cells.
Because of the BOA’s specific design, it massages the abdomen as well the lower extremities, which sets it apart form most devices on the market. The result is relaxation of the abdominal muscles and at the same time healthy stimulation of the bowel movements, which in turn improves the effectiveness of poisonous content evacuation.
BOA enhances lymphatic flow in both the peripheral and deep lymph nets. The results are an improved evaluation of metabolic residuals from the interstitial spaces, which in turn has a positive effect on the immune system.
BOA massages the muscles, which clients often describe “as if you have 10 therapists working on you a the same time”. The peristaltic movement relaxes the muscle, drains it form excessive liquids that are a product muscle activity, and can calm muscle spasms.
The skin benefits from an improved low of freshly oxygenated blood to all skin layers. The skin’s elasticity is improved, and it regains a more tone and former appearance. With regular applications, cellulite may be prevented and even eliminated.
