Steam Sauna Ozone Therapy

Steam Sauna Ozone therapy is suited for all types of people especially those who exercise on a regular basis. Ozone therapy breaks up lactic acid, increases cellular respiration in muscles, speeds up recovery of damaged tissue and accelerates growth of muscle. Ozone therapy improves blood circulation, improves vitamin and mineral absorption, fights inflammation, viruses and bacteria.

What to expect:

Steam Sauna Ozone therapy is one of the most comforting forms of Ozone Therapy. It helps restore your body’s natural balance to heal itself by combining the beneficial oxygenation and detoxification effects of ozone and a steam sauna.

You will sit in the Ozone pod with your head out of the top of the pod while steam and an ozone, oxygen mixture circulates inside the unit. The steam and heat trigger the opening of your pores. In the most simplest explanation - ozone enters your body through your skin into your lymphatic fluid, blood and fat cells. Toxins in your lymph, fat & blood are oxidized, the oxidized toxins are expelled out through your skin, sparing your liver and kidneys and your body goes through the process of cleansing viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and parasites.

A treatment is usually between 20 – 30 minutes depending on your health. You will sit either naked or in underwear on a towel with a towel placed at your feet inside the pod. A towel is placed around the top of the pod to prevent steam escaping. No jewellery, water bottles or foreign objects should be taken into the pod with you due to the heat. The therapist will give you water to drink during your session and the therapist will wipe your face should you require it during the session.

You can expect to emerge from the treatment feeling relaxed, refreshed and energised. Some experience detox symptoms. Bring a small towel to freshen up with and fresh underwear with you for after the session. Remember to drink plenty of water and breathe deeply for the rest of the day!
