HOCATT™ sessions are pre-programmed where the parameters (temperature, ozone concentration, etc.) are gradually increased from session 1 though session 10.
All 10 sessions should be completed in a timely fashion, as these sessions build up the effects and gradually condition your body. A high dose of ozone without gradual conditioning may cause an extreme detox reaction (aka herxheimer reaction) which could result in flu-like symptoms, mucous membrane irritation, and/or an itchy rash. It is recommended to stay within the prescribe parameters for optimum effect and to prevent irritation.
What to expect
You will sit back comfortably on the adjustable seat and the chamber doors will be closed to cover the body, while your head remains outside of the chamber.
A towel will be placed around your neck to ensure the steam does not escape from the chamber onto your face.
Pure, humidified, oxygen runs through an oxygen jet to the nose and mouth, boosting oxygen saturation in the blood.
Steam and far infrared rays (FIR) heat up the body raising your core temperature to rapidly induce an artificial fever. All bodily processes are enhanced at higher temperatures, including the production of hormones and enzymes. The heat dilates the pores and enhances circulation, which is further potentiated by the carbonic acid. The FIR rays penetrate deeply into the skin and subcutaneous tissue, relieving joint and muscle pain, and promote the chelation of heavy metals from the body.
CO2 enters the chamber and converts to carbonic acid (CA) irrigating the skin, entering the blood stream and lymph system. It dilates the capillaries and blood vessels, increasing blood circulation throughout the body. This draws more blood to the surface of the skin, enhancing the effects of ozone therapy. The CA sedates the central nervous system and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, relieving tension and stress in the spine and muscles. CA is one of very few compounds that naturally and without any side effects, increases the uptake and delivery of oxygen at the cellular level (aka the Bohr Effect).
The ozone cycle starts as soon as the CO2 cycle has ended and continues for the duration of the session stimulating the body’s natural anti-oxidant system boosting energy down to the cellular level. Because of the carbonic acid pre-cycle, absorption is enhanced up to 2x as much compared to normal ozone saunas. During this stage you may also elect to use a catheter for vaginal insufflation or funnels for cupping (e.g. breast cupping).
Micro-Currents may be selected to stimulate the muscles, nervous system and cells through foot electrode pads and/or hand held electrodes. It works with frequency specific micro-currents that focus on the specific health issue of the selected program, promoting the healing and regeneration of damaged tissues. The HOCATT™ gives you a choice of more than 120 different programs containing over 1100 frequencies that can concentrate on a variety of areas.
Full spectrum colored light rays fill the chamber and are absorbed by the skin as they reflect from the steam and ultra-reflective chamber walls. The HOCATT™ uses all colors of the spectrum, from soothing and relaxing to balancing and energizing.
Essential oil can be added to a special compartment within the HOCATTs steam jet. They infuse the steam as it fills the chamber for an aromatic, transdermal experience.
At the end of the session, the entire volume of steam is extracted into the large-volume activated carbon external ozone destructor. This prevents releasing the Ozone-Oxygen mixture into the room when the chamber doors are opened. The HOCATT™ is the only Ozone Sauna system in the world to provide dual destructors.
