What Is KAATSU?
KAATSU is a efficient and effective form of exercise, rehabilitation and recovery invented in Japan in 1966.
Patented KAATSU equipment enable controlled moderation of blood flow out of your arms and legs. When the pneumatic KAATSU bands are inflated, your arms and legs are safely engorged in blood that subsequently leads to a cascade of positive physiological effects.
KAATSU is supported by extensive research, specific protocols and patented procedures in sports, exercise, rehabilitation and wellness activities both in the water and on land.
KAATSU is a Japanese word and trademarked term where KA (加) means “additional” and ATSU (圧) means “pressure”.
Benefits Of KAATSU
As a non-impact exercise, KAATSU enables effective, efficient rehabilitation and eliminates muscle atrophy.
KAATSU leads to HGH secretion that helps create lean muscle mass and stronger bones.
KAATSU leads to the production of Nitric Oxide to help maintain and improve vascular elasticity.
KAATSU improves stamina, metabolism, and delays the aging process for all ages.
HGH creates increased energy levels and exercise performance.
Application Of KAATSU
Depending on what your goals are, there is an optimal KAATSU application for you. Whether you are looking for a quick injury recovery, are stiving for that extra athletic edge when you perform, or simply want to preserve your youth and maintain muscle tone, there are specific protocols for you.
"KAATSU is a game-changer for injured people...it cuts down the recovery time by half."
