Cocoon Wellness Pod
Image Sun is proud to offer our wellness clients the latest in thermal technology with the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod, which emerging research suggests has multiple positive effects on your body. 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 Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod provides the ultimate relaxation and wellness therapy by using a dual dry heat and infrared multisensory sauna system. The Cocoon combines both dry heat and infrared heat with vibratory massage, aromatherapy, and salt air for the ultimate body transformation and relaxation experience.
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.
