Cocoon Wellness Pod

  • Do I need to do anything before my Cocoon Pod session?
    Ensure you drink plenty of water before you arrive to your appointment. It is best to not have any big meals an hour before your session, if you happen to have food before, don’t panic, just remember for next time.
  • What do I wear for my Cocoon Pod session?
    Less is best for your cocoon session - bathers, athletic clothing, underwear or naked, it’s up to you. You will be sweating after your session so light, loose fitting clothing is best. (Clients will be laying on a towel during the session).
  • How long are the treatments?
    Treatments are 30/45/60 mins in duration. Please note the time spent in the Pod is the full 30/45/60. No time is taken off your session to get dressed or undressed. This ensures you receive the full Pod experience. Allow 10 mins after your treatment to get dressed and to hydrate with water. You are encouraged to take a seat in our relaxing waiting room to hydrate and just enjoy sometime to yourself before heading off. All clients have fresh clean towels and the Pod is fully disinfected after each client.
  • How many sessions do I need before I start seeing results?
    Results vary for every person and the reason they are coming for therapy. Most people notice a difference after their very first session as they are so much more relaxed and rejuvenated. For more specific conditions, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia or back pain many people notice changes straight away, however, it normally takes 3 to 8 sessions to start noticing measurable improvements.
  • I have a medical condition, is the Pod right for me?
    Contraindications Cocoon Fitness Pod System IS NOT RECOMMENDED for individuals with the following conditions: Epilepsy Active cancer Broken bones or slipped disc Infectious/contagious skin conditions; skin lesions, abrasions and/or areas of inflammation/persistent erythema. Intoxication Outfitted with pacemakers or defibrillators Individuals running a fever or insensitive to heat (i.e. erythema ab igne) Pregnancy or lactating Severe open abrasions/inflamed Individuals with the following conditions are advised to obtain physician consent before using the Cocoon Fitness Pod: Heart disease and/or other cardiovascular conditions Diabetes Using medication such as diuretics, barbiturates, anticholinergics, and/or beta blockers In poor health Low blood or high blood pressure Hemophiliacs/individuals prone to bleeding Individuals with implants (metal, breast, etc.) Individuals that may me be at risk to hyperthermia Joint Problems. If you have had a recent joint injury, you should not heat it for the first 48 hours (or until the swelling subsides). Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections — be they in the mouth, joints, or any other tissues. Haemorrhage. Haemophiliacs and those predisposed to haemorrhage should avoid far infrared usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilatation. It can create the tendency to bleed. Surgical Implants. Artificial joints, metal rods, pins, or any other surgical implants generally reflect far infrared rays, so they are not heated by a far infrared heat system. Nevertheless, you should consult your surgeon before receiving such therapy. The Cocoon Fitness Pod System is not a medical device. It is not for medical purposes and makes no medical claims. The Cocoon has not been evaluated for any medical purpose whatsoever. The Infrared Sauna Pod is a general wellness, relaxation and fitness system.
  • Should I shower after my Pod session?
    It is best to not shower straight after your pod session. Doing so can shut down the detoxing process. You want to keep those pores open and working to gain maximum results, so shower 1-2 hours after your session. For optimum results it is recommended using a body wash or exfoliating in the shower to help remove dead skin cells thus rejuvenating the skin. To add some hydrating to your pod session, be sure to use our complimentary Tuel Body Products Tuel Triple Splash Triple Splash is a unique body serum that uses sodium hyaluronate to provide superior hydration and lock in moisture.
