Why Combined Therapies Work
At Nirvana, we have a unique "whole body" formula for helping you be your best and achieve optimum health. Our special intro package gives you the opportunity to experience the array of combined therapies and how they work together. This overview gives you the basics on the synergistic relationship between the therapies.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT)
By breathing 100% pure medical grade oxygen under pressure in our state-of-the-art, highly specialized chambers, you flood your entire body with the intense healing power of oxygen. This helps your become “hyper-oxygenated!” Along with helping to stimulate cell growth, regeneration and collagen production, the oxygenation specifically effects the fascia (tissue surrounding muscles) which dramatically becomes more pliable, more flexible, less inflamed and helps eliminate the pain in sore muscles. This can allow a massage therapist to more effectively manipulate muscles in ways that would not be possible because of existing tension and stiffness. An added benefit is that the tenderness and inflammation that may occur the next day could be completely eliminated.
Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)
EWOT is cardiovascular exercise, appropriate to the individual, while deep breathing pure oxygen. In a session that follows your hyperbaric oxygen treatment, EWOT continues the oxygenation process by helping to maximize your body’s ability to uptake oxygen. This helps you feel more energized along with a heightened sense of well being. As part of a long term program, EWOT is a great way to maintain a high oxygen uptake, helping to promote your optimum health.
Our skin is the largest organ we have. Time in the infrared sauna helps to detoxify our cells so that we can stay healthy. Getting into the sauna directly after the HBOT and EWOT helps the body to expel toxins that have been dredged up by the hyper-oxygenation. It also transitions you into a peaceful meditative state and heats the body from the inside out. With the body warmed up and relaxed, far greater therapeutic value is achieved from your massage.
With your body hyper-oxygenated and warmed by the sauna, Nirvana’s massage therapist can usually achieve more in one hour than if they worked on you all day. The combined therapies leading up to your massage prime your body perfectly.
