How Does The Cocoon Wellness Pod Work?
The hyperthermic conditioning works to develop your muscle strength and tone your muscles while you burn calories. Many people cannot believe that these results can be achieved without movement of the body. Scientists explain, however, that sweating is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body involving significant increases in cardiac output (stroke volume and plasma volume), heart rate and metabolic rate. When Cocoon users undergo high-heat sessions, heat from the ambient air inside the cabinet is absorbed by the body which causes the body temperature to rise. The body automatically modulates the resulting increase in core temperature via a process called “thermogenesis”.
This process — which ultimately cools the body by the evaporation of sweat –consumes approximately . 586 Kcal per gram of water lost in perspiration. Studies have shown that a moderately heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams during a single session.
