You probably have heard about EMS, but don’t confuse it with ECP. Yes, it sounds like a lot of abbreviations but this one is very effective. It has become a unique recovery programme that is becoming more popular.
ECP or External Counter Pulsation Therapy is a device that enhances the efficiency of the heart and blood vessels to improve blood circulation. This means an increased recovery time between workouts, ensuring that athletes and fitness enthusiasts can maintain an intense level of training while minimizing the risk of injuries and fatigue.
Widely regarded as an effective method to increase blood flow, ECP Therapy can aid in improving quality of life, cardiovascular efficiency, and sports recovery.
ECP has also been known to help increase your energy, vitality, stamina, endurance, decrease recovery time, decrease in the build-up of lactic acid, relieving muscle soreness and improving your overall quality of life.
Does it require any needles?
It’s a non-invasive method, meaning it doesn’t penetrate your skin or use any needles. So, be at ease if you are not a fan of needles. It’s very much like a massage but beyond that. It goes the extra mile in relaxing your body and ensuring the muscles are completely relaxed.
How long does each session take?
