Whole Body Red Light Therapy

How long is the session? Sessions are set at 10 minutes. Based on the science, you can complete a full body session twice at day up to 10 minutes. Many of our clients also purchase the portable model for home use to supplement whole body sessions.  When addressing skin conditions, we suggest a thin layer of WILD ICE® Cryo-C Serum prior to your session.

What happens in the session?  We offer goggles for eye protection. We also note that the light can only address what it can see; therefore we suggest stripping down to a level of comfort with the most skin exposure. For men, we suggest going "Full Monty" in order to gain the added benefit of testosterone boost. It's as simple as pressing play to start the 10 minute session. The lights go off automatically. We do ask that clients not use cell phones in the room as the sound resonates through the center.

Does it hurt? No. The original Joovv® Red Light Therapy Room does not emit any heat. The new MITO® Red Light Therapy does have a bit of warmth.

What do I do after the treatment?: For skin care concerns, we suggest cold exposure in the whole body cryotherapy chamber and/or the localized cryotherapy on the face along with WILD ICE® cold-kept skin care. For muscle pain management, enjoy the entire wellness circuit or the Cocoon Fitness Pod.

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: Like cryotherapy, the science of red light therapy proves it takes multiple sessions for full cellular turnover. Studies average 21 visits. Our clients report 4-6. If you are looking to manage pain, disease or skin care, we suggest starting with a one or two week pass to maximize visits and create the compound interest. After that, you can decide which maintenance program works best for you. We also offer a Red Light Therapy membership.

Whole Body Cryotherapy

How long is the session? Temperatures in the chamber range from -120ºF to -152ºF. For first time clients with no experience with cold therapy, we suggest a 2:30 session to start. For your second session, we'll take you to 2:45. Most clients level out at 3:00 but we can go longer and add additional wind chill if you love the cold!

What happens in the session?  We provide coverings for your head, hands and feet as well as mask to buffer breathing in the cool air. You can pick any music you like to play in the chamber. Once inside, you will hear a countdown from 2 minutes, 1 minute, 30 seconds and 15 seconds. When the session is over, the lights will blink as a signal to exit. The chamber does not lock. You are always free to exit at any time.

Does it hurt? No. The cold can be uncomfortable for the first few minutes as your body adjusts but it's just cool, dry air. Most clients are more excited about the way they feel after to even notice the cold session.

What do I do after the session? If you have any specific areas of pain, we suggest Localized Cryotherapy spot treatment immediately following your whole body session. Hitting that area with high pressure cold while your capillaries are still in vasodilation will provide exponential healing. If you are looking to burn more calories, hit the Vibration Plates while your metabolism is in high gear. For muscle relief, try contrasting the cold with the Infrared Sauna or Red Light Therapy.

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: Like most therapies whole body cryotherapy benefits have a compounded interest. The science says 10-20 visits for your body to fully absorb the effects. Our clients report as little as 1, 2 or 3 visits. With that science in mind, if  you are looking to address pain or inflammation, we suggest starting with a one, two week pass to get the compounded interest as quickly as possible. After that, you can decide which maintenance membership plan works best for your. If you are simply adding cryotherapy as a healthcare addition, we offer cryotherapy only memberships as well as full circuit memberships with visits ranging from unlimited to weekly.

Why do people Cryo?

Localized Cryotherapy

How long is the session? For larger areas like the back and hamstrings, you will need 5-7 minutes. For smaller areas like elbows, wrists and knees, 3 minutes of localized cryotherapy is sufficient.

What happens in the session?  The machine ranges from settings of 5-9 which you can adjust based on your level of inflammation.  For hard to reach areas, our staff is available to assist. Otherwise, clients often spot treat themselves. We simply ask that you take care with the tube as not to crack. For more discreet areas, we close the door for privacy.  For those clients seeking relief from migraines or concussions, our staff takes great care with lighting and noise to ensure comfortable healing.

Does it hurt? No. The cold can be uncomfortable for the first few minutes as your body adjusts but it's just cool, dry air. Most clients are more excited about the way they feel after to even notice the cold session.

What do I do after the session? For muscle relief, try contrasting the cold with the Infrared Sauna or Red Light Therapy. For a relaxing massage, try our compression therapy.

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: Like most therapies cold exposure benefits have a compounded interest for effectiveness. If you are looking to address pain or inflammation, we suggest adding whole body cryotherapy sessions before your localized to open the capillaries for greater penetration of the cold. We also offer cryotherapy memberships as well as full circuit memberships with visits ranging from unlimited to weekly.

Infrared Sauna

How long is the session? Based on the science, it takes under 20 minutes to raise your core body temperature the necessary 3º for full detox. We don't time the sessions, rather ask you to listen to your body and exit at the first drop of sweat. Most clients say it takes 10-15 minutes to get there. For extended sauna sessions 30 minutes or more, we suggest Foundations Medical Center in Destin.

What happens in the session?  We ask that you leave shoes or slippers outside of the sauna to let others know it is occupied. We offer clean towels to lay on the bench for your sanitation. Privacy curtains have also been added and the sauna has separate music with Bluetooth if you prefer. WE do ask that you not talk on your cell phone while in the sauna as the noise resonates throughout the center.

Does it hurt? No. While the Sunlighten® Sauna does use far infrared light for detoxing, there is also a heating element ranging from 120ºF-140ºF. We do offer water in the center. If you get too warm or feel faint, we ask that you exit for your own  health and safety.

What do I do after the treatment?: Use the towel you were siting on to blot any sweat beads and replace a fresh towel for the next client. Most of our members and pass holders are on a circuit which includes the sauna, so there is often someone waiting. For muscle relief, we suggest a session on the vibration plates while your body is warm. To enjoy the full benefits of contrast therapy, try a whole body cryotherapy session before or after your sauna session.

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: For regular maintenance of your immune system, we suggest a sauna detox at least once per week. Many of our circuit members add the sauna to their regular routine one, two or three times a week.

Vibration Plates

How long is the session? We set the sessions at 10  minutes to provide the maximum benefit for muscle relief.

What happens in the session?  We ask that you leave socks on for sanitation purposes. Frequencies on the machines run anywhere from 30 to 50 Hz. We suggest starting around 8 or 9 Hz to see how your body responds that day. A slight bend in the knee will help from too much vibration to the low back. Straps are also available to pull vibration to the upper body. Clients have the ability to adjust the frequency based on their levels of comfort.

Does it hurt? If you have a recent or serious injury, we do not suggest vibration. Otherwise, if vibration is new to you we always suggest a low setting to start so you can see how your body responds.

What do I do after the treatment?: VIf you are on a wellness circuit pass or membership, move along to the remaining services. If vibration is your final stop, head to the gym to take advantage of firing muscle fibers to build strength more quickly!

 

Compression Therapy

How long is the session? Sessions are 20 minutes for any one area to allow for maximum benefits to your lymphatic and circulatory systems. As long as no one is waiting for a chair, you are welcome to try multiple areas.

What happens in the session?  Pressure ranges from 1-7. For new clients, we like to set the pressure at a lower setting, allow the air to fill up and then allow for adjustments. When using the boots, we suggest 10 minutes on a lower setting (1-3) for lymphatic drainage followed by 10 minutes on a higher setting *(4-7) for circulation. Many of our clients go straight to the highest setting. For the arms, we suggest starting at Level 3. For the hips, we suggest starting at a Level 1.

Does it hurt? Not if you are injury free. With any injury history, we always like to start low and work up to ensure your comfort. For older clients, the lower settings tend to be more comfortable. For those dealing with brain injuries and/or dementia, we have found the slightest pressure of Level 1 provides a calming affect.

What do I do after the session? Most of our clients end their circuit with compression and a glass of water, coffee or tea!

How often do I need to come for multiple treatments?: Compression doesn't necessarily require multiple treatments unless you are dealing with lymphatic or circulatory issues. Otherwise, grab a session when you feel your body needs it!
