Ozone is a naturopathic medicine and has been used in healthcare since the early 1800’s. Modern science is just revealing the vital role that ozone plays in our daily lives and scientific studies have reported that medical ozone is a safe and effective method of treatment. Ozone is probably nature’s universal antidote for virtually anything that is wrong with the body. If you think of it, a man can live for weeks without food, a little shorter without water, but only minutes without oxygen.
Ozone therapy works by enhancing the body’s utilization of oxygen which enables us to better fight infections, slow cellular aging, modulate the immune system and enhance natural detoxification processes. It is supportive for anyone wanting to boost the immune system, detoxify, reduce bacterial and fungal load, clear the skin, or reduce the effects of aging.
Here at Body Rejuvenate for our Ozone / Oxygen Therapy we believe in and use the HOCATT™ steam sauna, which provides a method of introducing ozone into the body via the skin. This is called transdermal ozone therapy. 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.
How it Works
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 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 light breaks any painful inflammatory cycle by dilating small blood and lymphatic vessels. This increase in circulation can result in accelerated healing and pain relief.
The patient’s head is outside the ozone steam cabinet, and they are inhaling pure oxygen throughout the 30-minute session. Delivered via a headset with a tube blowing 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 is extensive. It increases circulation, promotes energy, naturally stimulates antioxidant enzyme production, improves absorption of nutrients, improves skin tone, and helps relieve many chronic health problems.
The Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Preparation for Your Ozone Sauna Treatment
Please come with loose fitting comfortable clothing. When you arrive please check into reception, from here you will be guided to the lockers provided to receive your rubber based shoes and towel/gown. You will then be escorted to your treatment room where the therapist will welcome you and explain the session. Enter the sauna with a towel around your body which you will hand over to the therapist when the sauna doors is closed. Inside you will sit on a white towel to see the toxins that will be expelled from the lymphatic system post session. Black or colored dots will appear on the towel when finished.
The session will take 30 mins from when you enter the sauna. The therapist will provide water throughout the session and a fan to cool down your face. It’s recommended to not talk throughout the session and to keep your heart rate as low as possible through deep breathing. Post your session the therapist will guide you out of the sauna to cool down, take rest and get dressed.
