In today's society, the human body is being stressed like never before. Our hectic lives have left many stressed, depleted, and unhealthy. While many attempt to exercise and eat healthy to improve their health, a key component is often overlooked. Our bodies need rest to recover. This simple, but knowledgeable concept spawned the health and recovery zone. The Health & Recovery Zone was created for individuals to efficiently find ways to recover. Whether the body is being stressed from a work out, sports practice, game or competition, or even work demands, it is important to decrease inflammation associated with physical and mental stress. At the DMV Health & Recovery Zone each individual can Rest. Relax. Recover. Refuel. Recharge
Sit back and relax as our compression therapy will provide health benefits that will maximize your ability to refuel, relax, recover and increase readiness for the next demand! Our compression therapy devices are designed for rehab and recovery. Similar to a massage that will knead, stroke, and strum soft tissue, each compression therapy unit will provide compressed air that will mobilize soft tissue such as muscles and fluid to increase recovery. Flush out the additional inflammation, lactic acid, and fluids associated with strenuous exercise and get back to working out, practice, or competitions with less soreness.
Health benefits include:
- Decreased swelling
- Decreased inflammation
- Improved lymphatic drainage
While our compression therapy will assist athletes and fitness enthusiasts with their recovery, our compression therapy will also help patients with the following diagnoses:
- Venous Insufficiency
- Peripheral Edema
- Water retention

Not familiar with Cryotherapy? Cryotherapy is a modality or service that uses cold to help provide health benefits. It may be hard to believe, but there can actually be benefit from the cold? And we’re not just talking about minor benefits — we’re talking relatively major health changes.
The body can have many benefits from cold:
- Decreased inflammation: Cold reduces blood flow to your body, which can significantly reduce inflammation, swelling, and that soreness you feel after you work out. This is especially noticeable in more intense applications of cold, such as ice and cryotherapy
- Weight loss: Being cold can boost weight loss by speeding up your metabolism and increasing the amount of some calorie-burning hormones your body produces.
- Increased metabolic rate: When your body gets cold, it sends instructions to your muscles to quickly expand and contract, or shiver. Shivering uses so many different muscles that it increases the amount of heat your body produces, which can significantly increase your metabolic rate.
