About the SLIMLINE POD

The SLIMLINE POD capsule provides the perfect environment to assist in achieving weight-loss, cellulite reduction, skin tightening and rejuvenation, increased metabolism and energy, reduced water retention, detoxification and, anti-inflammation.

Increases your metabolism:

  • As your body heats up in the SlimLine Pod, your basal metabolic rate increases about 6-7% for each degree your body temperature rises. The stimulated BMR causes you to burn more calories.
  • Burning calories

  • Perspiration is a part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body involving significant increases in cardiac output, heart rate, and metabolic rate. Perspiration consumes considerable energy, which is measured in calories (Kcal).
  •   Increased perspiration creates greater caloric burn for increased weight loss.
  • A moderately heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 grams in a SlimLine session, consuming about 390 Kcal. This would be the equivalent energy expenditure of running 2 to 3 miles.
  • A highly heat-conditioned person can sweat off from 500 to 700 grams in a SlimLine session without adverse effects. This is equivalent to walking 3 to 6 miles!
  • After regular SlimLine Pod use for a few weeks, it is not uncommon to double your rate of perspiration.
  • Detoxification

  • The kidneys and liver are responsible for eliminating toxins in our bodies. When our bodies become overloaded with toxins, the kidneys and liver cannot adequately filter the toxins out of the cells.
    As a result, our fat cells accumulate with waste products and we become overweight. The heat of the SlimLine Pod provides inner cleansing and helps rid the body of unwanted toxins and impurities. Detoxification allows the liver and kidneys to function more efficiently.
  • Improved Cardiovascular Efficiency

  • Scientific research has shown that a 16 minute sauna session three times per week for six weeks significantly improved cardiovascular efficiency in a group of college students. SlimLine Pod treatments are generally 30 minutes, (about double the length of the study).
  • Substitute for some exercise

  • The accelerated heart rate induced by conductive/ dry and near-infrared heat is a form of workout for the heart and circulatory system. Heat stresses the body, which goes through physiological changes as a result. Research has shown that SlimLine's effect on the cardiovascular system is conductive to good sports training and can serve as a substitute for physical exercise in relation to cardio stimulation.
  • Moderate Sweat
    (135° to 155°) for 30 minutes
    Burns 300 calories and is equivalent to walking 2 to 3 miles

    High Heat Sweat
    (155° to 175°) for 30 minutes
    Burns 500-700 calories and is equivalent to walking up to 5 miles.

    Benefits of Detoxification

    A majority of the population does not sweat enough to eliminate the toxins in their bodies. A simple way to increase sweat production is to exercise until you break into a sweat, or you can simply use Far Infrared sauna Therapy (FIRT). Far Infrared sauna Therapy is an effective method of removing these toxins. Its effect is concentrated on the subcutaneous tissue layer. Far infrared sauna therapy has become the treatment protocol of choice for many professionally recommended detoxification programs. The analysis of far infrared sauna produced sweat shows that is made up of 80 to 85% water, the remaining 15 to 20% contains sodium, other trace minerals, fat soluble toxins, sulphuric acid, uric acid, ammonia, cholesterol and heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and mercury ( this is up to 6 times the amount of toxins and heavy metals found in traditional sweat ). These toxins are mostly concentrated just under the skin in the subcutaneous layer of the body and are associated with numerous health problems. Implementing the use of Far Infrared sauna Therapy into your life style has many benefits and can help you to become much healthier. It is important that you drink more water when using FIRT to detoxify.


    Benefits of Light Emitting Diode (LED) Therapy

    This therapy was developed by NASA in the 1980s to improve wound healing and tissue growth in space. LED technology uses 100% safe wavelengths of light to stimulate cells, increase circulation, and promote collagen growth. LED therapy is a non-invasive procedure done with panels of red and/or infrared lights that deliver low-level pulses of light. It works like photosynthesis for the skin – it converts light energy already found in skin cells to promote healing and anti-aging effects. LED therapy is fast becoming a revolutionary treatment in health care.

    Anti-Aging Effects Of LED Therapy. Collagen and elastin are the buzz words in any spa. As we age, tan, smoke, wash our face and live within the confines of gravity, they breakdown and we see wrinkles, creases and folds in skin that were once taut. LED therapy can reverse the appearance of aging skin, enlarged pores and crow's feet with a light wave that penetrates far beneath the surface of our skin without causing any damage. It also pulls collagen to the surface to fill-in lines and wrinkles.

    The Cosmetic Benefits of LED Light Therapys

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and crow`s feet
  • Clears acne and minimizes pores
  • Improves the appearance of skin tone and texture
  • Restores skin’s natural collagen production
  • Reduces melanin that causes brown spots
  • Reduces the effects of sun-damaged skin
  • Increases circulation and moisture
  • Reduces skin degradation, redness and flushing
  • Decreases scarring, redness, dry patches, itching and sensitivity caused by eczema
  • Stimulates and activates naturally occurring metabolic function and nutritional elements
  • Health Benefits of LED Light Therapy. Studies show that skin exposed to LED light wavelengths grows 150-200% faster. Therefore, as LED therapy improves the cosmetic appearance of skin, it also promotes the healing of wounds, scars and burns. This happens because skin has a high blood and water content, so it quickly absorbs red light to produce enough energy to cause a healing response from the body.

    NASA uses LED therapy to treat muscle and bone atrophy and decreased healing of wounds in astronauts. The US Navy also uses LED therapy on deep sea submarines. Leading cancer treatment specialists are using LED lights to activate light-sensitive cancer treatment pills and are reporting outstanding results in fighting otherwise unreachable brain tumors. LED therapy is advancing the treatment of chemotherapy side effects such as severe mouth sores and lesions. LED light therapy is safe and effective for all skin types, and has no known side effects, downtime, pain and requires no after care.

    The Slimline Pod uses two different colored wavelengths.

    Red Light Therapy: Rejuvenates the skin by improving blood flow and increasing collagen production. Provides relief from chronic and acute pain including muscle pain, joint pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, tissue and nerve damage, and decreases injury healing time.

    Yellow Light Therapy: Stimulates the nervous and lymphatic systems, toning and strengthening the muscles under the epidermis, and brings tightness back to skin, thus aiding the anti-aging process.


    Benefits of Oxygen

    Oxygen nourishes the body, helps flush toxins and impurities and promotes the healing of injuries. Oxygen therapy has many benefits: energy enhancement and a greater stamina; enables muscle recovery, which leads to less aches and pains; aids in restful sleep, increases clarity, memory, alertness and contributes to an overall feeling of wellness. The aging process is associated with a drop in available oxygen to the skin cells. Oxygen provides the skin with much needed nutrients to repair and restructure itself from the inside out. The use of pure oxygen provides an energizing and healing effect to the skin cells, which is ideal for acne prone skin due to the anti-bacterial effects of oxygen.

    Oxygen also allows the deep penetration of skin care products into the bio-matrix of the skin, thereby plumping and smoothing lines and wrinkles.  Oxygen stimulates collagen production at a cellular level speeding up the mitosis of the skin cells thus helping in the healing process, and reverses the damage caused by free radicals.

    Generally it takes 3 to 5 minutes to oxygenate ones blood, but a 10 minute session is recommended. If one is suffering from: headaches, hangover, migraine, stress, fatigue, cramps, jet lag, heat exhaustion, or minor aches and pains, oxygen can provide relief.


    Benefits of Carboxy Gel

    Carboxy Gel (CO2) was originally used in treatment of scars.  Now Carboxy Gel is proven  effective in many areas of skin enhancements such as reducing subcutaneous fat, whitening, elimination of freckles, improvement of the acne and balancing oil and moisture. It is also very effective for stretch marks and scars. Carboxy Gel promotes the rise of O2 supply which is critical for cell metabolism. When the skin absorbs CO2, it starts to promote physiological reactions that enhance the skin condition.
