WHAT WE OFFER
Red Light Therapy
Resting Altitude Therapy
What makes a Hocatt sauna unique? Ozone. Ozone is often considered “enhanced oxygen” because it holds an additional oxygen molecule – think SuperOxygen!
Well-researched and with outstanding safety records, an ozone sauna has been used as a supportive therapy for many categories of disease due to its antioxidant stimulation and energy production capabilities.
You may have heard of Ozone referred to in the news as “dangerous”, that refers to the Ozone found in our atmosphere as it relates to climate change. Our Hocatt sauna is totally safe because your body is fully enclosed in the Hocatt preventing any Ozone inhalation. It is a relaxing and rejuvenating therapy that can be used to support your overall well-being as well as in support of certain illnesses.
- An infusion of ozone
- Carbonic Acid
- Photon light (LED and far infrared therapy)
These combinations of advanced modalities are sequenced to gently but powerfully detoxify and restore the body at the cellular level, working on all major systems at one time.
With a variety of settings, our health tech host will program your session to suit your needs. Depending on your needs, this modality is used to:
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Support cellular detoxification
- Boost Metabolism
- Increase blood flow throughout the body.
- Support immunity
- Support weight-loss
- Improve athletic performance
- Nourish the skin and support healing of skin issues.

- Allow for people on strong protocols for lyme, mold and cancer to advance in the process of recovery.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MY SESSION
Each session lasts 30 minutes and one of our health tech hosts will guide you through the process. We recommend arriving for your session well hydrated.
RED LIGHT THERAPY
Need to recharge? Red Light Therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, targets the mitochondria within the cells to eliminate oxidative stress particles. This empowers many of the body’s systems to operate in an energized state. As little as 15 minutes in the red light bed provides boosted energy and a mood reset, not to mention enhancements to skin and metabolism.
We are proud to offer 3 NovoTHOR red light beds. Red Light Therapy, is similar to when you feel the warmth of sunlight on your skin. However, unlike sunlight, which produces ultraviolet light, the NovoTHOR bed only delivers red and NIR (Near InfraRed) wavelengths.
Red Light Therapy devices deliver red/NIR wavelengths to bare skin. More like Photosynthesis than heat therapy, as light photons penetrate the skin, they are absorbed by your mitochondria (the energy center of your cells), which then increase the production of ATP (the substance that acts as cellular fuel). This increase stimulates other biological processes that lead to a positive ripple effect of benefits throughout the body.
With consistent PBM therapy, we see:
- Increased ATP production thus providing additional fuel for your cells.
- Increased release of tissue-specific growth factors which support healing of a variety of skin related issues.
- Diminished inflammatory markers, making it a great recovery therapy after a workout or to support healing after surgery.
- Increased immune system modulation which supports recovery from illness.
- Increased blood circulation
- Improved muscle performance
- Improvement in joint mobility
- Improvement in skin texture and elasticity
- Increased collagen production
- Healing of sun damaged skin
- Reduction of acne, psoriasis and other skin related issues.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MY SESSION
Our health tech hosts will show you to a private room and give you an overview of your session. Each session lasts from 12-20 minutes depending upon your tolerance, sensitivity and preference. You will remove your clothing and lay down in the bed and be treated to a relaxing break from your day.
Cryotherapy, or cryogenic therapy, is any form of treatment using freezing or near-freezing temperatures to achieve therapeutic results. What does extreme cold mean? Our chambers are set to -124 degrees F (-86.6 C). The coldest recorded temperature on earth was -128 F (-89 C) in Vostok Antarctica. While most cryo chambers use liquid nitrogen for cooling, our Mecotec chambers are nitrogen-free, using fans to circulate cold air to keep the entire chamber equally cold, delivering a safer, gentle and efficient experience.
Quick and frigid, our chambers provide brief exposure of the entire body to extremely cold air creating a thermal shock effect. The circulatory system will naturally respond by prioritizing blood flow to the interior organs. The skin tightens and constricts as the body makes a vital effort to survive a thermal challenge. Cold shock proteins are released by the body, which aid in decreasing inflammation, boosting collagen production, and accelerating metabolism. Exiting the chamber after 3 minutes or less, your cardiovascular system rapidly pushes fresh blood to the skin as it seeks to warm your skin and extremities, sending freshly oxygenated blood from your core for a rejuvenating effect. The endorphin release and energy boost make cryotherapy an everyday favorite.
- Relief from chronic pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Faster muscle recovery
- Improved endurance
- Increased energy
- Improved blood circulation
- Improved sleep
- Decreased stress.
- Improved mood.
- Increased fat burning as a result of metabolic boost.
- Increased mental clarity and focus
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MY VISIT
A cryo session lasts anywhere from 1-5 minutes depending on your preference and tolerance. Always attended by one of our health tech hosts, you are free to exit the chamber at any time, regardless of the elapsed time.
Prior to entering the chamber, our health tech host will provide you with an ear warmer, gloves, socks, slippers and a surgical mask to protect your extremities during your session. They will then measure and record your body temp by using a specialized thermometer on your tricep. What you wear in the chamber is your choice, but the more skin that is exposed, the greater the benefit. Upon exiting the chamber, we will record your temperature again to measure the net temperature loss. To achieve maximum benefit, we look for a temperature loss of at least 25-30 degrees.
RESTING ALTITUDE THERAPY
We are proud to be one of the only facilities in California to offer passive intermittent hypoxic training. Hypoxic training means exercising, living in, or breathing oxygen-reduced air to achieve improved health and fitness. Our training room allows you to experience the benefits of training at altitude from the comfort of our zero gravity reclining chairs. Customized to your unique needs, a session takes you through a cycle that moves between normoxia (the air you are used to breathing at sea level) and hypoxia (the reduced oxygen level you experience when at altitude). This therapy allows you to improve energy efficiency, performance, and recovery to help you live a more vibrant life.
When your body perceives low levels of oxygen in the blood, the body responds by creating more red blood cells, stem cells, and capillaries, and activating more than 100 genes which elicit a broad range of physical responses. Alternating between sea level (Normoxia) and altitudes from 12,000-18,000ft (hypoxia), your body learns to both adapt to low levels of oxygen in the blood as well as to build greater efficiency and responsiveness to changes in oxygen levels.
- Improved metabolism.
- Increased resilience and responsiveness in sensing and utilizing oxygen.
- Increased Red Blood Cells and Stem Cells.
- Improved acclimatization to high altitude settings.
- Enhanced athletic performance.
- Decreased fatigue.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MY VISIT
Upon arriving, our health tech host will settle you into a Zero Gravity Reclining chair and provide you with an eye mask, noise-canceling headphones and a specialized face mask that will deliver your flow of oxygen. Lasting between 30-40 min, you will be taken through a repetitive pattern where you will alternate between breathing 4 minutes of altitude air and 4 minutes of sea-level air. For the majority of clients, the oxygen concentration will vary between 11-16% which spans the altitude range from Mount Shasta to Kilimanjaro. Monitored throughout, your health tech host can adjust oxygen levels, time in hypoxia/normoxia, and the depth of your hypoxia as well as monitor your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and Heart Rate Variability. This allows for a unique and individualized experience depending on your specific level of health and fitness and your unique goals.
