Considering we are a Wellness Center, it makes sense that we have a lot of questions about alternative ways a person can stay healthy. If the idea of being alone and private is what you had in mind on this journey for better health, then we have just the thing that might pique your interest.

Considered One of the Best Infrared Saunas You Could Ask For

What exactly is the Cocoon Wellness Pod? To put it simply, it is an infrared sauna pod that uses a combination of dry heat air system and an infrared heating system that heats up the body from the inside and produces an array of benefits for your health.

The Bad And The Good About Infrared Saunas

What exactly is so good about the sauna pod and why is it so sought after? Let me list down a few things as mentioned by Dr. Myers, who is best known for The Autoimmune Solution, and The Thyroid Connection books.

Detoxification

A natural way for our bodies to eliminate accumulated toxins is through sweating. Infrared saunas, because of their trademark of heating the bodies from the inside, encourages a more thorough detoxification as compared to traditional Swedish Saunas.

Promotes Relaxation

Infrared saunas help in balancing your body’s cortisol, the primary stress hormone. That, plus the fact that the heat from the Cocoon Wellness Pod helps relax muscles and relieve stress tension, allowing you to relax more.

Definite Weight Loss

In an article titled Effect of Sweating, it is stated that an infrared session 30-minutes long could burn 600 calories. The rise in body temperature causes your body to work harder in an attempt to lower your core temperature, making it seem like you actually did some work despite only lying down on an infrared bed.

Are There Negative Side Effects?

Dehydration

Though this is more common with older adults, the younger crowd is also prone to this, so you have to remember to hydrate properly before using an infrared sauna.

Negative effect on people with certain medical conditions

This is definitely not for people with particular ailments and even for others with implants. When in doubt if you can use it due to a prior illness, always consult a physician.

Can You Use the Cocoon Wellness Pod?

It is important to note that though there are health benefits with using infrared saunas, you must take into account your present condition before diving in— or should I say snuggling in— the Cocoon Wellness Pod. Pregnancy, as well as having a heart condition, are red flags in the infrared sauna department. Otherwise, if you are healthy, in the prime of your life, stressed and have aching joints and protesting muscles, jump right in for some relaxation time.

Patented Dual Heat System

Lets you choose your preferred body temperature, giving you maximum comfort and results. The infrared sauna’s dual heat system warms the body while the dry heat brings relief from stress and tension.

Radiant Infrared Sauna System

Raises the core body temperature with a deep warmth that may last 4-12 hours after your session.

Dry Heat Air Wellness System

The air inside the pod is gradually heated in a safe, even rise that you can personally adjust.

Touch Screen Color Display

A state-of-the-art touch screen hub with the user-friendly Cocoon software that has preset programs such as:

  • Relax
  • Wellness
  • Power Nap
  • Fitness
  • & Weight management

Hot Massage Vibration Bed

This massage feature can be adjusted in intensity. A full body immersion that includes a foot massager. This, combined with the dry heat of the Cocoon Wellness Pod, makes for an ideal stress reliever.

Integrated Hyperthermic Fitness Exercise System

A built-in exercise fitness system that can easily be changed to provide resistance that ranges from low to high for all levels. It maximizes the burning of calories rather than weight management.

Cooling Face Air System

This allows you to adjust the cool air flow that is directed to your face and neck for optimum comfort during the heat sessions.

Aroma System with Pure Himalayan Ionic Crystal Salt

Depending on the user, the Cocoon Pod has a feature that allows for you to add or omit essential oils during your session.
