INFRARED DRY SAUNA POD INFORMATION AND BENEFITS

Also referred to as the COCOON

Just one 15 or 30-minute treatment of infrared massage, and your blood flow is enhanced by 400 percent. Seriously. This increased blood flow works overtime, lasting several hours after your session.

  Nitric oxide is the key to the dramatic improvements that infrared light therapy provides. This short-lived gas is crucial to the health of your arteries. Infrared energy prompts the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the immediate vicinity. This boost in blood flow brings oxygen and nutrients to injured, aching tissues, resulting in fast healing. It also reduces pain and inflammation.

infrared also helps balance your cortisol levels. “Cortisol is a hormone that goes up with stress, so when it’s balanced, you’ll be more relaxed,”

 

 Cue instant snooze. Other features of the cocoon is renewing sleep by the Himalayan salt block and jade-studded “blanket,” AKA the inside lid of the pod. “Jade is believed to aid in boosting your immune system, it does absorb and evenly distribute infrared better than other [materials], so it allows enhanced the therapeutic benefits.”

The lid of the interior of the pod Is lined with Jade Crystals and Pure Bliss in Tulsa also has an added benefit of a Jade Blanket that you may choose to lay on. The crystals are round and flat and sewn into the blanket and will cover your back area.

 

As for the salt? “Halotherapy, or salt therapy, is a powerful treatment that has been recognized as far back as ancient Greece, “Natural moisture in the air absorbs the salt particles. As you inhale, it moisturizes your skin and your airway passages, clearing your sinuses and promoting mental calmness.”   Calm is one of the things you will feel after you emerge from the cocoon post-treatment. I find it best to sit upright for a few minutes before standing up to get your bearings back. You may feel tired just after treatment but after about 5 minutes a renewed sense of energy and wellness comes over you.

You may also notice a significant glow in your face and body, plus a boost in energy and a decrease in soreness and congestion — all extremely welcome especially if you are getting over a cold.

It is highly recommended that you drink water before and after your session for hydration.

DO NOT use the pod if you have been drinking or have done any illegal drugs.

You may set a function for workout and ask for the work-out bands that are attached inside the pod to pull on for exercise. Depending on the level of heat chosen you can really work up a sweat.

I really like that I have easy access to the controls to adjust heat, level of massage and relaxation. 

No matter which setting you choose, the infrared benefit is the same.
