How Often Should You Use the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod?
The Cocoon Wellness Pro System provides the ultimate relaxation and wellness therapy by using a dual dry heat and infrared multisensory sauna system. The Cocoon combines both dry heat and infrared heat with vibratory massage, aromatherapy, and salt air for the ultimate body transformation and relaxation experience.
A soothing, relaxing environment is created inside the Cocoon pod via a combination of flowing, heated air and radiant infrared wavelengths. While heating the air (like a traditional sauna) raises the temperature throughout the entire pod, the infrared wavelengths directly warm the object inside the pod – your body. This unique combination of energized wavelengths creates the ultimate environment for which to enjoy a full body massage created by the action of the dual-wave vibration system built-in to the unit’s lounge.
With this unique multisensory system, you can customize each sauna sessions! The pre-set programs include:
• Weight Management
• Relaxation • Power Nap In addition:
• Dual dry heat and radiant heat with optional vibration massage
It is recommended to acclimate yourself to the thermal heat and intensity by gradually increasing the heat temperature per session. Scientific studies are proving that ‘Hyperthermic Conditioning’ (frequent exposure of the body to intense heat) can offer a wide arrange of health benefits. The Hyperthermic conditioning works to develop your muscle strength and tone your muscles while you burn calories.
When is the optimal time to use the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod?

Cocoon infrared sauna before or after exercise?
You can use the Cocoon sauna before or after exercise depending on your goals. Firstly, you want to consider your water intake whether you exercise before or after sauna usage. During the session, your body will sweat and your heart rate will increase, therefore, causing you to lose water and electrolytes (1).
Here are a few facts regarding usage of the Cocoon Infrared Sauna Pod pre-or-post exercise:
A light to moderate sauna session prior to a workout session will increase blood flow to your body, providing nourishment to your muscles and cells, aiding in increased caloric burning. Conversely, if you use a sauna before exercise your muscles will be very relaxed and you risk injury or becoming dehydrated (1).
Cocoon sauna usage after exercise can help increase endurance due to hyperthermic conditioning. Furthermore, the effects of increased heat exposure promote increased production of “heat shock” proteins and human growth hormone, helping to build muscle mass and prevent muscular atrophy (2). Using the Cocoon sauna post exercise can promote a deeper state of relaxation (with optional vibrations/massage) while still burning calories and increasing your blood flow.

• Your hydration levels.
