Managing stress and what I put into my physique are two components that play a significant function in sustaining my coronary heart well being.

I’ve began utilizing the Cocoon Wellness Professional Pod at Sunlimited Tanning Salon & Day Spa, and I really feel so refreshed. This machine makes use of infrared gentle to warmth the physique at 4 completely different settings: calm down, health, wellness and hypothermic. 


The proprietor of Sunlimited, Becky Chrestman, is significantly better at explaining how this machine works than me. “The Cocoon makes use of infrared which is on the invisible gentle spectrum. 54 p.c of the sunshine the solar emits is infrared, so on these days when it’s cloudy however you continue to really feel warmth from the solar, it’s the infrared gentle,” Becky says.



I used to be nervous going into the pod for the primary time as a result of I’m not a fan of warmth. I exploit the pod on the leisure warmth stage which is simply sufficient warmth to reset my physique and soothe me, however not sufficient to really feel like my pores and skin is melting. My pores and skin is delicate to temperature and completely different pressures on account of my naturally pink hair, however the pod solely covers the physique beneath the neck so the pinnacle stays out of the warmth. There are followers blowing on the face to assist regulate, and also you even have full management over the temperature if you are within the pod. In the event you begin out at one stage and resolve it is perhaps too scorching for you, you’ll be able to change the setting to a decrease stage.

The Cocoon pod consists of vibrating therapeutic massage, heated stones, Himalayan salt stone and the choice for aromatherapy. I are inclined to go for the extra tropical scents, however Becky has each scent underneath the infrared solar to select from relying on the way you’re feeling or what your favourite is.


This pod can be utilized for a unending record of targets or health-related points. I personally use the pod to assist calm down my physique for my coronary heart and to alleviate my muscular tissues after a exercise. Mainly the identical idea as a heating pad however 10,000 occasions simpler, the infrared remedy soothes the muscular tissues and eases rigidity which will have constructed up. I come out of the pod feeling like a model new lady able to tackle the world.

Many individuals will are available in to make use of the pod as a pre-workout as a result of it helps enhance flexibility and vary of movement,” Becky says. “Utilizing the “Chill out” and “Wellness” settings can burn as much as 300 energy, and the “Health” and “Hypothermic” settings can burn as much as 600 energy.”


Like a sauna, you get sweaty. The sweat is a part of the method for dropping energy and water retention, so ultimately you’re feeling higher and extra energetic. Periods can run from 15 to twenty minutes on your journey to the pod or 30 to 60 minutes on your following journeys. With that being stated, ensure you are utterly hydrated earlier than you go into your session.
