LifeWorks Wellness Center recently added a Hocatt chamber to its list of services, meaning that patients will now have access to ozone steam sauna treatments.
Hocatt stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Therapy” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which patients sit with just their head exposed to the air, while their body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, Photon light and oxygen.
The steam sauna heats up to a comfortable temperature and then carbon dioxide gas (carbonic acid) is infused into the sauna. After this, the carbon dioxide is removed and the sauna is infused with ozone gas. The heat and the carbon dioxide serve to open up the circulation to the skin so that when the ozone gas is infused it is absorbed by the skin into the general circulation.
As steam gently fills the sauna, the Photon infrared light penetrates the skin to help increase blood flow and circulation. Photon breaks any painful inflammatory cycle by dilating small blood and lymphatic vessels. This increase in circulation can result in accelerated healing and pain relief.
Throughout the patient’s head is outside the ozone steam cabinet and they are given an additional boost by inhaling pure oxygen throughout the 30-minute session. Delivered via two small tubes inserted into the nasal passages, this breath of “fresh air” helps to boost the immune system, reduce stress, boost energy and even fight off cancer.
The health benefits of having a session in the Hocatt ozone steam sauna are extensive. It increases circulation, promotes energy, naturally stimulates anti-oxidant enzyme production, improves absorption of nutrients, improves skin tone and helps relieve many chronic health problems.
