What is Ozone Therapy?
At Kallima Lifestyle Clinic we use the HOCATT (Hyperthermic Ozone Carbonic Acid Transdermal) device. The HOCATT is a powerful therapeutic tool which combines the beneficial oxygenation and detoxification effects of both Ozone, CO2 and steam sauna, thereby restoring the body’s natural balance to heal itself.
This form of Ozone Therapy is a common way to describe the combination of Ozone and Steam Sauna Therapy. Ozone, or "activated oxygen", is introduced into a special steam sauna cabinet, where it then is absorbed through the skin and is favoured as one of the least invasive and most enjoyable forms of Ozone Therapy.
How does it work?
You sit comfortably in an Ozone resistant steam cabinet with your head protruding out the top of the cabinet. In this way, your face remains cool and you avoid inhaling the ozone gas which can irritate the lung lining. Adjustable volumes of CO2 and an ozone/oxygen mixture is circulated inside the sealed off unit. The pores open and capillaries dilate due to the moist heat & CO2 gas. Ozone dissolves in the superficial water film on the skin and reacts with the lipids in the skin to generate Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and an array of Lipid Oxidation Products (LOP) which enter through the dermis, derma and capillary wall penetrating the lymphatic fluid, blood and fat cells. Toxins in the lymph, fat & blood are oxidized, and the body is cleansed of viruses, bacteria, yeasts, fungi and parasites.
During the treatment your body will process the oxidised toxins and expel them through the skin, sparing the liver and kidneys.
A treatment may last anything between 15 – 30 minutes depending on the clients’ health. You can expect to emerge from the treatment feeling extremely relaxed, refreshed and energised. For general detoxification a schedule of 10 treatments is advised.
