Cocoon Wellness Pod
Summit Beach Tanning is proud to offer the latest in thermal technology with the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod, which emerging research suggests has multiple positive effects on your body. The whole-body, self-contained Cocoon Wellness Infrared Sauna Pod produces 3 levels of infrared wavelengths that penetrate deep below the skin to yield a abundance of natural healing properties. Regular 15-30 minute sessions have countless benefits, from weight loss management and pain relief, to stress reduction and relaxation. Infrared heat also helps to improve sleep, flexibility, reduces blood pressure and promotes blood circulation along with increased metabolism, skin cell rejuvenation, detoxification, reduced joint and arthritic pain and can burn up to 300 calories in 20 minute sessions.*
Thermal energy, created by the heating of the Tourmaline, Jade and Germanium stones that align the inner walls of the pod, emit specific radiant wavelengths – generating negative ions that help facilitate the flow of the body’s bio-energy.
The Cocoon Wellness Infrared POD also delivers a full-body vibrational massage with a dual wave massage vibration system and Himalayan Salt therapy. For added pleasure and relaxation, you can also enjoy the benefits of Aroma Therapy via pure essential oils. Sessions are customized to meet your needs so that you leave feeling refreshed and rejuvinated inside and out.
Promote Fitness with Hyperthermic Conditioning:
With its triple IRTM (3-in-1) for near, mid and far infrared benefits, the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod soothes, heats and raises the core body temperature with deep warmth called resonance that can keep your metabolism elevated for 4-12 hours after your session.
Scientific studies are proving that ‘Hyperthermic Conditioning’ (frequent exposure of the body to intense heat) can offer a wide arrange of health benefits. For instance, according to research by the University of British Columbia the therapeutic use of infrared light can help relieve common pain, stress and fatigue and contribute to treatment programs for chronic diseases including hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Additionally, there is some indication that infrared heat can be used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome.
The Hyperthermic conditioning works to develop your muscle strength and tone your muscles while you burn calories.
Many users simply cannot believe that these results can be achieved without movement of the body. Scientists explain, however, that sweating is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body involving significant increases in cardiac output (stroke volume and plasma volume), heart rate and metabolic rate. When Cocoon users undergo high-heat sessions, heat from the ambient air inside the cabinet is absorbed by the body causing the body temperature to rise. The body automatically modulates the resulting increase in core temperature via a process called “thermogenesis”.
This process — which ultimately cools the body by the evaporation of sweat –consumes approximately 586 Kcal per gram of water lost in perspiration. Studies have shown that a moderately heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams during a single session. By increasing your metabolic rate, you will continue to burn additional calories throughout the day – long after your session has ended.
As the cycle of hyperthermic conditioning followed by rehydration continues, your body’s metabolic rate will steadily rise — and you will burn calories at a higher and more effective level. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, continued use of the Cocoon will help you to achieve your permanent weight loss goals.
Relax and Reduce Stress:
The deeply relaxing and soothing heat and massage features offer a calming environment to help relieve stress and tension. You will enjoy the vital connection spark between mind and body for improved sleep, mental acuity, mindfulness and meditation. Throughout the session, the user has the ability to control the intensity and direction of the massage by selecting upper, lower of full body massage. They may also raise or lower the temperature to their desired level.
Since the head is outside the Pod, where cooling air keeps the user comfortable, they are able to enjoy the benefits of the high heat environment inside the Cocoon.
Improve Range of Motion and Flexibility:
Simultaneous heat and vibratory massage promotes flexibility and range of motion response, making movement easier and safer as you age. Mobility may be improved and allows for better recovery following athletic training, repetitive movements, overuse or the aging process. Athletes find that the Pod helps them recover from injury faster.*
Experience Pain Relief:
Be dilating blood vessels, infrared heat increases blood circulation to injured areas, speeding up the healing process and relieving pain. Infrared heat has also been used extensively in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, inflammation, muscle spasms chronic pain and Lyme disease.*
