Medical-grade ozone is the key ingredient in the efficiency of the ozone pod.
The pod is equipped with an Oxygen Concentrator that produces oxygen (O2) for the two corona discharge generators. These produce pure ozone (O3) which is infused inside the pod. The second generator is also dedicated to auxiliary functions such as cupping (to concentrate the application of ozone to specific areas) and vaginal insufflation.
There are many ways of administering ozone: The method we use, is the absorption through the skin (transdermal), a non-invasive but at the same time very effective method that exposes the whole body to the benefits of ozone.
Ozone is a natural molecule that can be considered a super oxygen. Ozone is a pale sky blue gas with, strong oxidizing power, highly soluble and reactive and has a strong oxidative effect on organic compounds.
Ozone instantly combines with different types of molecules, initiating a series of chemical reactions that increase the production of antioxidant enzymes, with beneficial effects on the life and functionality of cells. Positively charged ozone is attracted to negatively charged cells such as bacteria, viruses, parasites, mycoses, yeasts (which do not have the ability to produce antioxidant enzymes), neutralizing them and thus eliminating active infections.
Ozone activates a series of positive mechanisms within the body, promoting its healing without the use of drugs. Prof Bocci (eminent Italian researcher who for more than 20 years has studied the effects of ozone in the human body) and other important researchers in the field of oxygen-ozone therapy, there are good reasons to affirm that prolonged use of ozone can cause 4 important phenomena (from "Evidence-Based Ozone Therapy, WFOT Scientific Committee, 2015).

The Oxygen Concentrator provides pure humidified oxygen to breathe during the session, thus increasing the oxygen saturation in the body.
Oxygen is a vital element that sustains life. 90% of the body's energy is created from oxygen through aerobic metabolism. Proper cellular oxygenation is the only way to achieve maximum well-being. As we age our cells lose the ability to function normally because their oxygen level tends to decrease.
Due to the deterioration of oxygen levels, there is a slowdown in ATP production. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is our body's fuel, it gives us the energy we need to run, jump, eat, breathe and live. Due to the slow decline of cells, the body's capillaries tend to swell, reducing the oxygen supply to the tissues.
By increasing oxygen levels we are able to dramatically slow down the aging process:
Carbonic acid is naturally present in the human body.
In the first minutes of the treatment, the pod infuses CO2 (carbon dioxide) into the cabin. CO2 mixes with steam (H2O) and forms carbonic acid (H2CO3 ).
Carbonic acid has the ability to penetrate through the skin, into the blood vessels, thanks to its highly soluble state, increasing the oxygen absorption capacity of blood, muscles and skin. This physiological process is known as the "Bohr effect" (by the Danish doctor who studied it). The Bohr effect is not the only effect of carbonic acid on the human body, in fact its other mechanisms concern stress, cellulite, parasympathetic nervous system, cardiovascular system and skin.
The following are the benefits of transdermal carbonic acid:
Increasing body temperature to promote healing makes complete sense when you think about the fact that the body does the same thing when a person runs a fever.
The Hocatt ozone pod utilizes both Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and steam sauna to increase the body’s temperature. The result is a dilation of the blood vessels that increases oxygen, nutrient and blood flow. In addition, the white blood cell volume increases. The end result is increased energy, improved detoxification and increased mitochondrial function – a key to keeping your patients healthy and degenerative disease at bay.
The wavelengths of the Far Infrared have marked beneficial therapeutic properties on living organisms. The infrared rays are positioned inside Hocatt behind the backrest and next to the feet. They help to raise the temperature and penetrate deeply into the body.
In the 1800's, astronomer William Herschel discovered a type of invisible radiation in the light spectrum beyond red light - a ray that would become known as infrared, which is not reflected but absorbed. The Far Infrared Treatment is a system whereby waves of light penetrate the human body, transforming into thermal energy that gently raises the body temperature to activate important body functions.
Infrared treatment increases the energy level of water molecules, promoting rapid cell growth and regeneration (see also Hyperthermia):
The heat inside Hocatt causes the bonds between the oxygen particles in the ozone molecules to break, generating ultraviolet irradiation, just as it happens in the earth's atmosphere. This irradiation affects the epidermis and deeper layers of the skin, promoting the production of protective substances, hormones and vitamins. It also has a disinfectant and bactericidal action.
The effectiveness of the treatment with ultraviolet irradiation is very high and there are improvements with lesions from the first treatment.
Aromatherapy is used in a wide range of settings from health spas to hospitals to treat a variety of conditions. It is used to relieve pain, improve mood, and promote a sense of relaxation. In fact, several essential oils — including lavender, rose, orange, bergamot, lemon, sandalwood, and others — have been shown to relieve anxiety, stress, and depression.
Several clinical studies suggest that when essential oils (particularly rose, lavender, and frankincense) were used by qualified midwives, pregnant women felt less anxiety and fear, had a stronger sense of well-being, and had less need for pain medications during delivery.
The Hocatt has 2 coloured (LED) lights incorporated in the pod. The colours are reflected on the walls of the cabin and on the steam to enable it to be absorbed by the skin; to which the body reacts in quantifiable and physiological ways.
Research is well documented on the evidence of organic reactions given by chromotherapy and demonstrates that there is an evident emotional and psychological response to the chromatic scale.
Light is simply energy. Each colour has a different frequency and wavelength, which means that each colour produces a different form of energy. Each colour affects the mind and body differently:
HU=GO is the latest generation high intensity Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields generator. The fields are created thanks to solenoids composed of very thin copper wires and insulated with silicone; the solenoids are thus very thick but incredibly soft and easy to handle. These are inserted in two mats for the full body treatment enhanced by the sandwich effect.
But why are PEMFs so important? The crux of the matter boils down to the fact that we are electromagnetic beings, our cells function thanks to their electrical charge. A healthy person with a good immune system has cells that have an optimal membrane potential of -90milliVolt.
In order to function, the cell needs this slightly negative tension and thanks to this it produces life. It expels toxins, oxygenates the cell, activates the metabolism by assimilating the nutrients through the cell's pores that dilate, produces the energy for the our daily life, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), through ionic exchanges between sodium and potassium, all are activated by electrical charges. It keeps the immune system healthy by carrying "waste" into the extracellular matrix which, in turn, sends them to the purification organs (lungs, kidneys, liver). At -40milliVolt we are already full of pain and chronic pathologies and the immune system is severely deficient and at -20milliVolt we are at risk of tumour formations.
High intensity PEMF causes a flood of electrons in the body. Free electrons serve as natural antioxidants, which are also negatively charged. This makes HU=GO inherently an anti-aging treatment.
PEMFs have other rapid if not immediate effects. The metabolism increases by 30%. The blood becomes less dense and viscous in about ten seconds, the red blood cells stuck in piles are released and activated and the white ones start hunting. The microcirculation accelerates with the systemic diffusion of oxygen through the capillaries throughout the body. Pain response proteins are activated. The energy starts up again. Adrenaline deconstructs and you become calm.
When it comes to research studies, it does not get any better than NASA.
Of more than 10,000 research papers and 2000 plus double blind studies on PEMF therapy; none was more thorough and conclusive as the 4 year NASA study lead by Dr. Thomas Goodwin, PhD, on the ability of PEMF to improve the growth and repair of tissues in mammals.
Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin's historic flight into space, left him in a near critical condition after only one hour and forty-eight minutes in space. He had all 4 essential elements but after 4 years of NASA research they found he was starved of the earths magnetic field.
Since then NASA has rectified matters, based on the findings of this study.
