Therapy packages like the Wellspring Lungevity and Complete Body Reset include therapies that best work together to aid the body in relaxation and healing. Both of these packages are popular options for those looking to pamper their skin and respiratory system. Each of these therapies work together to create an experience that increases health in the body. Both packages include:
- Exercise with Oxygen Therapy
- Salt Therapy
- Infrared Sauna
The only difference between the two is that the Complete Body Reset includes BEMER circulation restoration therapy.
Each of these therapies is used for 20 minutes back-to-back which increases the effectiveness for all of the therapies. It is deeply healing and an excellent option for those looking for relief from hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disorders, and those looking to strengthen and improve their overall physical performance. So, how do these therapies work together?
LiveO2 increases blood flow and oxygenation.
The LiveO2 is an exercise with oxygen training (EWOT) method. EWOT is a method of breathing in higher concentrations of oxygen while exerting yourself on a stationary bike or other accessible form of exercise. During a session the highest concentration of oxygen you will take in is 93%; compare this with the 21% that is the normal oxygenated level you breathe in at sea level. This high concentration of oxygen will be contrasted with lower oxygenated levels, similar to altitude training, to increase the beneficial effects and difficulty of the training. This Adaptive Contrast creates results similar to hyperbaric chamber therapies.
These benefits of exercising with oxygen therapy are due to increased oxygen circulation. Increasing the oxygen supply necessary to the countless chemical processes that occur in your body boosts your performance naturally. Low oxygen supply to different areas of the body is linked to many different diseases and disorders that grow more common with age. For those experiencing these symptoms, increased blood flow to damaged tissue can speed up the healing process.
In each of these therapy packages, you begin with 20 minutes using LiveO2. A trainer will instruct you in simple breathwork while you get the blood flowing and increase oxygenation in the blood. The benefits of LiveO2 include increased cognitive function and vision, improved physical performance, and increased respiratory system health to name a few. First-time users of LiveO2 who do not first book a training session, will not experience LiveO2 as an Exercise with Oxygen Training (EWOT) but purely as Oxygen Therapy. You will sit or gently stretch while performing breathwork exercises led by a staff member. The initial LiveO2 EWOT is $50 per session and must be booked by calling us at (970) 872-9355.
Salt Therapy cleanses the respiratory system, and is especially effective to use after your LiveO2 workout.
Immediately after you finish your 20 minutes of EWOT on LiveO2, you enter a small calming room with bolsters, mats, and cushions. An inviting space to stretch and recover as the salt therapy does its work. This is an ancient therapy, as old as the theory to send off our ill to the seaside. What does today’s active salt therapy look like?
The Salt Chamber Inc, is the company we have chosen to work with to offer this therapy. Their active salt therapy works like this: “Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and then it is ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the salt room during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the salt room, the microparticles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. While inside the salt room, the non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin” Salt Chamber Inc – Salt Therapy Halotherapy
The salt on the skin has been found to benefit skin conditions and ease breathing by thinning the mucus in airway linings as described by Senior Scientific Advisor to the American Lung Association, Dr. Edelman in an article for the Lung Association.
Salt therapy relieves stress and promotes better sleep as well as cleared airways and skin. It is anti-microbial so it prevents infections, reduces inflammation, and supports the immune system the perfect addition to an EWOT session.
Infrared Sauna relaxes and cleanses the body of impurities by sweating them out.
Following EWOT and salt therapy is 20 minutes in the infrared sauna to promote relaxation and further cleanse the body of impurities. An infrared sauna directly benefits chronic fatigue syndrome, decreases recovery time from strength-training sessions, and reduces blood pressure. It also is a proven stress relief activity and improves the immune system. This is in addition to the known benefits of regular sauna use that is not infrared. The infrared sauna because it is more comfortable makes this therapy more accessible to everyone.
At Wellspring we chose a Sunlighten infrared sauna because of its proven results to stimulate the circulatory system, causing the heart to beat more vigorously and blood vessels to dilate, which helps cleanse the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from deep tissue to the skin’s surface to help with cell health and the immune system.
Because of your increased blood flow and oxygenation from the two previous therapies, the sauna helps to drive out the impurities that are currently flushed into your system. If you choose the Lungevity package this could be the final therapy for you. Three therapies in an hour is perfect for those with a busy schedule. If you have the time we often recommend upgrading to the Complete Body Reset so you can experience the BEMER.
Finish your wellness center session with increased circulation using the BEMER.
To finish you could choose the BEMER electromagnetic circulation restoration medical device. Users lie on a mat that emits an electromagnetic field. There is an option for a more pinpointed mat to be used if you have a specific area you would prefer to target.
The BEMER increases blood circulation by up to 29% in just 8 minutes.This increase in circulation allows for more oxygen to be delivered throughout the body. This speeds healing times and increases physical performance. Increased circulation also speeds the removal of lactic acid and co2 from your body as well. Say goodbye to soreness post workout!
Using these therapies in succession means that you increase your blood flow and oxygenation.
Immediately following the LiveO2 exercise with oxygen therapy, Salt Therapy and the Light Therapy proceed to cleanse the body of impurities and stimulate energy production. Ending with the BEMER brings the loop to a close, by increasing blood circulation again without the sweat that came with LiveO2. Lay back and deeply relax as your body recovers.
These therapies when combined are excellent for those suffering from respiratory disorders, chronic pain, autoimmune disorders, the list goes on. If you struggle with a chronic condition, we do recommend consulting your doctor before booking your first session. Book with us today in Hotchkiss, Colorado on Vagaro or by giving us a call.
We look forward to helping you achieve your wellness goals and live a life of vitality.
Love people. Love vitality.
