No! You can choose to leave certain things out if you want to start slow and work your way up.
All settings are completely adjustable before & during a session, so if something is too intense it can be easily adjusted or turned off. Likewise, if you want it hotter or more powerful we can always crank it up!
The session itself is 30 minutes. If it's your first appointment, please come about 15 minutes early to fill out an intake form.
After the session, you will feel like you just ran on the beach on a hot, humid day - a bit drained for a few minutes, then invigorated and recharged! Plan on about 15 minutes after your session to stand up, cool off and get dressed.
Best practice is to NOT shower or swim for several hours after your session. The ozonides are still working their magic on your skin!
We provide fluffy towels, spa wraps, sweat bands and hair ties to ensure you feel clean & dry during & after your session.
One 30-HOCATT session costs $125.
We have 5-packs & 10-packs available for additional savings!
When you arrive at your appointment, your nurse will go over your health history, take your vitals, and go over the available settings & options.
START OF A SESSION
Each HOCATT sauna is in a private room. In the privacy of the room, remove all articles of clothing and wrap yourself in a provided towel or spa wrap. You may then sit in the seat of the HOCATT™ chamber.
If you wish to keep any undergarments on during the session just be aware you will sweat, so you may wish to bring extra! Make sure they are loose-fitting if possible so as not to impede your lymph system.
The nurse will knock and make sure you're ready, and immediately close the chamber doors to cover your body, while your head remains outside of the chamber. You may then open up your towel.
A neck blanket or towel is placed around your neck to ensure that none of the steam escapes from the chamber onto your face. A nasal cannula will be placed around your neck if desired to provide pure humidified oxygen for you to breathe.
A TV is available with a selection of channels for you to watch during your session. You can also listen to your phone or tablet, but keep in mind earbuds will not work during PEMF therapy.
DURING A SESSION
Once you start your session, your nurse will step out of the room, but will check on you often throughout your session.
During the session, steam and far infrared rays (FIR) heat up the body with the intention of raising the core body temperature to rapidly induce an artificial fever. All bodily processes are enhanced at higher temperatures, including the production of hormones and enzymes.
The heat also dilates the pores and enhances circulation, and this is further potentiated by the carbonic acid. The FIR rays penetrate deeply into the skin and subcutaneous tissue, relieving joint and muscle aches/pain and promoting the chelation of heavy metals from the body.
PEMF (pulsed electro-magentic field) Therapy can be used throughout the session. It uses magnetic fields to significantly reduce pain and boost energy, which accelerates healing and regeneration. Special Electrotherapy programs may also be selected to stimulate the muscles, nervous system and cells through foot electrode pads.
Full spectrum colored light rays also fill the chamber and are absorbed by the skin as they reflect from the steam and the ultra-reflective chamber walls.
HOCATT™ uses all colors of the spectrum, from soothing and relaxing to balancing and energizing. You may ask for essential oils to be added to the steam jet.
For the first 3-8 minutes of the session, CO2 enters the chamber and is converted into carbonic acid (CA) as it reacts with the steam. The CA and steam irrigate the skin, and enter through the pores into the blood stream and lymph system. It also dilates the capillaries and the blood vessels, increasing blood circulation throughout the entire body by up to 25%.
This also draws more blood to the surface of the skin, which enhances the effects of the transdermal ozone. The CA sedates the central nervous system and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, relieving tension and stress in the spine and muscles.
After the CA cycle is finished, the ozone cycle starts, and continues for the rest of the session. The ozone reacts with the H2O (steam) to form H2O2 on the surface of the skin. The H2O2 is partially absorbed through the dilated pores and enters into the blood stream and lymph system.
One of the main advantages of Ozone is that it supports the body's natural anti-oxidant system, and boosts energy down to cellular level. Because of the carbonic acid pre-cycle, the absorption of H2O2 is enhanced up to 2x as much compared to normal ozone saunas.
END OF A SESSION:
At the end of the session, the entire volume of the ozone and oxygen steam mixture is extracted into the external ozone destructor, in order to prevent it from releasing into the room when the doors open. You may then wrap yourself with your towel once again. The nasal oxygen cannula and neck blanket/ towel will be removed, and then the chamber doors will be opened (or you can open them on your own after the nurse has left the room.) When you are ready to stand up, use the handlebars to step out of the chamber.
Towels are provided to dry off. It's ideal to NOT shower or swim for a few hours, as the ozonides are still active on your skin, providing additional benefit.
Once you're dressed, you can exit the private room - your nurse will be waiting to help you with anything else you need!
You will feel the benefits from just one session, but we know you'll want more!
Additional sessions actually become more effective over time, as your detox pathways begin to open up more easily. You'll even find yourself sweating more & more during your sessions - this is a great thing, as sweating is a vitally important detoxification organ.
Depending on what you're trying to acheive (weight loss, detox, assist with chronic health issues, biohacking), a series of sessions done 1-2 times per week can accelerate your results. Discounted packages are available.
Like we said, this isn't just any sauna - you can see the results! During your session you sit on a towel, and after you session you can see the toxins on the towel.
It's... a little gross. Which is why we have these pictures buried in a FAQ.
The silver lining - those toxins would still be inside those clients today if they hadn't used the HOCATT!

*These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. Sauna and ozone therapy is for wellness only, and not intended to cure or treat disease. We make no claims as such.
Some of the contraindications are only for one or two of the modalities offered in a HOCATT session, and these can be turned off if not suitable. For example, those with pacemakers can not use pulsed electromagnetic frequency (PEMF) therapy as it can damage the pacemaker, but this is optional and can simply be turned off.
- Dehydration - please drink extra water before your session!
- Heart Conditions
- Blood Clots
- Uncontrolled Hypertension or Hypotension
- Heat Insensitivity
- Elevated Blood Alcohol or Drug Levels
- Organ Transplant Patients (can stimulate immune system too much and cause organ rejection)
- G6PD deficiency
- Epilesy or Seizures
- Electrical Implanted Devices
Sauna therapy and PEMF therapy enhance cellular metabolism and detoxification. Detoxifying too quickly can overload your detox pathways (colon, lymph, skin, kidneys, liver, and lungs) and cause detox symptoms known as a "cleansing crisis" or Herxheimer reaction. These can include:
- Flu-like symptoms
- Skin rash/itchy skin
These reactions do mean the process is working - you just need to help your body keep up with all the toxins it's trying to get rid of!
Drinking a ton of extra water, hydration IVs, taking binding agents like Zeolite that can absorb toxins, making sure your colon is moving efficiently, and moving your lymph system with walking, bouncing or massage all can help. Aloe Vera can help with any itchy skin.
Deeply detox. HOCATT Ozone Infrared Sauna
The HOCATT is an impressive all-in-one wellness tool, with 10 different wellness modalities that work synergistically. But what does each of the modalities do?
For the first few minutes of your sauna session, warm carbonic acid fills up the chamber. This noticeably relaxes muscles and calms the central nervous system. It increases blood flow throughout the body, helping to open and reconstuct closed capillaries and enhance oxygen delivery.
It also is amazing for your skin, prompting a bit of exfoliation - you won't believe how soft your skin feels after you're done! Finally, it opens up your pores and prepares your skin to absorb ozone.
Steam is also being released into the pod in waves during your session. This mixes with the CO2 gas to produce the carbonic acid, and creates a gentle, relaxing heat that's great for getting your sweat glands opened up!
After a few minutes, the pod begins to fill up with ozone. Ozone is an amazing full-body detox tool that may help the body oxidize, eliminate and purge all types of toxins. It may also support the immune system, as well as promote healing.
Far Infrared Sauna
Far Infrared is another modality that begins to take effect 3 minutes into your session. This is a popular therapy that heats your body from the inside out, stimilating hundreds of different processes, restoring damaged cells and reducing the impacts of oxidative stress.
Far infrared sauna also is seven times more effective at detoxing heavy metals compared to regular sauna! It's also great to support the detoxification of environmental toxins.
Whole Body Hyperthermia
The benefits of whole body hyperthermia are well studied. Elevating your core temperature stimulates the body to clean house, repairing or removing damaged proteins and cells. Damaged cells are highly susceptible to heat, whereas healthy cells remain untouched. This allows your body to selectively clear itself of the damage and direct its energy towards building healthy new cells.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency Therapy
PEMF therapy is a fascinating therapy that can be a game-changer for fatigue and absorption issues. PEMF sends pulsed magnetic energy into your body, recharging your cells like batteries. In many ways it's similar to the practice of "grounding."
Every cell of your body runs on electricity - you can't absorb hydration or nutrients without electrical pulses to properly charge the pumps that pull fluids in & out of cells. The magnetic pulse of the earth provides this charge normally - think about how great you feel after walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach - but in the modern world we are almost always buffered from it. This causes our blood cells to dehydrate and clump unnaturally - even if we are drinking enough water, our cells can't actually absorb it without the proper electric charge!
NASA realized space station astronauts weren't thriving without the Earth's magnetic energy, so they created the PEMF device to replicate it. These magnetic fields actually increase your electrolytes and ions, helping to bring your cells back into the proper electrical balance.
Frequency Specific Microcurrents
Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapy is a method of sending microcurrents of electricity into the tissues to stimulate positive changes in the body. This therapy is very similar to TENS Therapy or Rife Therapy.
While in the HOCATT you may place your feet on the metal footplates, through which precise frequencies of electrical energy are applied in sequence. Before your session you can choose from about 100 different frequency sequences, each designed to target different areas and issues. The are programs to support issues like depression, candida, parasites, fatigue, hypothyroid and more.
The intensity of each microcurrent program can be adjusted from low to high. You can feel the electrical pulses through your feet, but we can adjust it so that it can just barely be felt, or turn it off altogether.
Photon LED Light Therapy
During a HOCATT session your body will be bathed in cycles of Photon LED Light Therapy to gently stimulate natural cellular processes. This therapy cycles through multiple colors, each with their own reported benefits:
- Violet to calm fear and anxiety, relieve insomnia
- Blue used commonly in dermatology to assist in fighting infection and inflammation. Also said to be excellent for acne, cuts and burns.
- Green is said to be helpful for headaches, and relieves the symptoms of colds and flus.
- Yellow helps enhance mental concentration, as well as soothe intestinal and liver issues.
- Orange is for asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues.
- Red is the most common LED light therapy used by medical practitioners. It's known to stimulate blood flow and increase energy.
Inhaling pure oxygen has many benefits. Increasing your oxygen levels helps to reduce stress and slow the aging process. An oxygen-rich environment may be key to warding of many diseases. Restoring proper oxygen absorption also enables your body to work at peak performance and recover faster.
Essential Oil Aromatherapy
Essential Oils can be added to the steam system prior to your HOCATT session. A variety of oils are available, each adding different properties to a session.
- Peppermint: Best for energy, digestive issues & sore muscles
- Lavender: Best for relaxation & sleep
- Chamomile: Best for help with stress & anxiety
- Eucalyptus: Best for the common cold & respiratory issues
- Clary Sage: Best for high blood pressure
- Sandalwood: Best for skin
That's a lot! How do I decide?
Don't worry! Before your first session your nurse will go over your health history & goals, and will assess your vitals. We typically start with most settings on default - roughly in the middle range of what's available - unless you have contraindications or wish to start very slow. We can lower or raise things like heat and ozone levels during your session if needed.
We chart every setting during your session, so it's saved in the system for next time; you can decide if you want to raise or lower your settings each time!
