Our therapists are experienced in delivering Counterpulsation therapy. In the first treatment the presuure in the cuffs is increased slowly whilst the client gets used to the rhythmical squeezing. In subsequent sessions the pressure increase can be achieved more rapidly.

There are different programmes for sport, heath and cardiac clients. Visit our sections Cardiac, Health and Sport sections to read more.

Some clients on the longer cardiac treatment programme opt to have two hours of treatemnt per day with a short break in between.

Counterpulsation is available in Harley Street, Canary Wharf and Wimbledon. Therapy times can be tailored to suit the client with early morning , evening and weekend appointments available by arrangement.

We have treated clients from Southend to Scotland. Many cardiac clients choose to stay locally whilst having treatment. Our staff can help you plan your treatment programme, accomodation and travel arrangements. All of our treatment centres are close to public transport links.

The supervising doctor will assess your current medication as part of the pre-assessment investigations. Changes to medication will be made as required during the treatment programme. The supervising doctor will liaise with the client’s GP or other doctors involved in their care.

You will be provided with leggings to wear under the cuffs. In addition we recommend wearing a loose fitting top or T shirt.
