A session in our Cocoon Wellness Pro Pod has countless benefits, from weight loss and pain relief, to stress reduction and relaxation. Many of the benefits come from the infrared lighting, which deliver a dry heat treatment that feels like a dry sauna. Infrared heat has been proven to assist in weight loss. The Cocoon Wellness Pro Pod also delivers a full-body vibration massage. You are able to target areas of the body to be massaged, as well as adjust the intensity, creating a Wellness Pod experience that is uniquely yours. In addition to the infrared heat and vibration massage, the Cocoon Wellness Pro Pod has the unique option to add aromatherapy to your experience. Aromatic and therapeutic essential oils are diffused throughout the pod during your session.
Dry Infrared Heat:
The three levels of near, mid and far-infrared lighting work to deliver a dry heat treatment that can be set from ambient to 180-degrees Fahrenheit. The infrared lighting treatment is like stepping into a dry sauna. Exposure to dry heat accelerates heart rate, speeding the circulation of blood, typically doubling the flow of blood through the body. Exposure to dry heat speeds metabolism efficiently, allowing your body is to use calories consumed for energy instead of storing them as fat. Especially during fall and winter, joints become stiff and crack and pop and muscles tighten and ache. Through exposure to infrared heat, joints become more supple, muscles are relieved, and body flexibility increases. The sweat induced by dry heat exposure opens pores to release toxins and accept treatments. And, lastly, dry heat induces an undeniable relaxation with an enveloping, hugging heat: a perfect setting for meditation and release of the day’s worries.
My Cocoon delivers a full body vibrational massage therapy with a dual wave massage vibration system. Vibration is one of the five classical massage strokes that hails from ancient civilizations. Ancient Chinese medicine masters used vibration to raise the level of life force and stimulate or loosen muscles. Since the 16th century, Japanese schools of massage have used vibration to loosen rigid muscles and reduce rheumatic pain. Therapeutic vibrations exert a small, rhythmic force that travels deeply within the body cavity to exert small pressure waves on resistant muscles that feel tight. Gentle forces stretch the muscle until it reaches relaxation. The machine vibration employed by the Cocoon is even more effective than a massage therapist for this technique.
For centuries, medical doctors from both ancient and modern civilizations have encouraged the use of Himalayan salt treatments to improve lung health and skin condition. When inhaled, Himalayan salt travels through sinuses and respiratory system to cleanse, absorb unhealthy moisture, remove mucus, and kill bacteria. Himalayan salt is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, and can fight upper respiratory conditions, seasonal allergies, sinusitis and bronchitis. Then, Himalayan salt therapy helps to lessen and even cure some common skin conditions and diseases, like eczema, psoriasis and acne. Salt therapy also reduces stress, as it produces negatives ions that boost the immune system and reduce chronic stress and fatigue.
