NYCPT is proud to offer our wellness clients the latest in thermal technology with the Cocoon Infrared Pod, which emerging research suggests has multiple positive effects on your body. With its tripe IRTM (3-in-1) for near, mid and far infrared benefits, the Cocoon Infrared 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.
How Does it Work?
The hyperthermic conditioning works to develop your muscle strength and tone your muscles while you burn calories.
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.
•Weight management, including significant calorie burning (up to 800 calories per session)
Burn 800 Calories in a Single Session
A highly heat-conditioned person can sweat off up to 800 calories during a session without adverse effects, which is equivalent to running from 6 miles! Almostall the calories burned are eliminated as heat through the skin. About 75% of the calories burned during traditional physical exercise — such as running and cycling — are lost through the skin as heat via perspiration. That is why users sweat during Cocoon Infrared sessions and when they perform traditional aerobic exercises! In both examples the exerciser is dissipating the excess heat the body core has built up through the skin a process which burns equivalent calories whether running or using the pod!
Boost Growth Hormone Levels
Relax + Rejuvenate A unique dual wave massage is produced through several synchronized vibration transducers placed under the lounge. As you relax, you can adjust the intensity and the focus of the massage from a light touch to a deep penetration. You also can enhance the experience by adding essential oils to the pod’s air intake system for aromatherapy. The pod’s padded lounge is ergonomically designed to ensure your body’s weight is so evenly dispersed that it feels as if you are floating on air. Additionally, jade, tourmaline and germanium stones are embedded within the walls of the pod. When heated, the stones emit radiant wavelengths that generate negative ions to regulate the body’s energy flow.
Experience the Benefits of Halotherapy
Experience the benefits of Europe’s traditional salt caves and the new “salt rooms” springing up across the country. The salt air or “halotherapy” experience is designed to mimic salt caves, which have long been used in therapeutic applications throughout Eastern Europe. Halotherapy is a pain-free alternative treatment that uses dry sodium chloride to treat respiratory problems such as colds, sinusitis, hay fever, asthma, allergies and bronchitis. A salt environment has also proven to be helpful for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. For healthy users, salt treatments can strengthen the immune system and provide a healthy and relaxing spa experience.
The simultaneous heat and vibratory massage the pod provides helps to promote better flexibilityand a more fluid range of motion response in your body. Athletes find that the pod helps them recover from injury faster, and the pod also helps anyone who is suffering from pain from repetitive movements, from overuse of the muscles or from the simple aches and pain that can come with the aging process. Infrared heat dilates blood vessels, thereby increasing blood circulation to any injured areas, relieving pain and hastening the healing process. Infrared heat has been used successfully in the treatment of muscle spasms, arthritis and rheumatism.
Reduce Anxiety + Sleep Better
As you experience the heat and massage the pod provides, you will notice a marked reduction in your stress and tension levels. In addition, the soothing aspect of the pod allows you to feel more mentally alert and paves the way for a more restful sleep that night. Studies have also indicated the positive effects of heat aclimation on the brain, including the growth of new brain cells, improvement in focus, learning and memory, and reducing depression and anxiety.
