Is HYPOXI Painful?

No, it is completely non-invasive and pain-free. Many clients comment that the alternating pressure in the chamber creates an invigorating feeling on the skin. The horizontal position in which the treatment is administered in the L250 and HDC takes pressure off the joints and lowers the client’s heart rate so that the experience is more likened to spa therapy than a form of exercise.

Can I use HYPOXI if I’m not very fit?

Hypoxi training is designed for men and women of all fitness levels and ages. Throughout the treatment, your heart rate and skin temperature are constantly monitored. HYPOXI training does not require any particular degree of physical fitness and is perfect for someone who is thinking about getting back into exercise for the first time in years. You will be required to complete a client information form when you attend your studio, as there are certain illnesses & conditions which preclude people from undertaking treatments. If in doubt, we recommend you speak to a medical professional – your safety is paramount to us.

Yes, HYPOXI-Training relieves the veinous system of the legs. The combination of light changes of pressure and simultaneous muscular movement helps the veins and also the lympahtic system.

Pregnant women are permitted from partaking in Hypoxi Therapy. If you have any concerns about other illnesses you may have please contact us and we would be glad to advise.

After pregnancy when is it possible to restart HYPOXI-Training?

After 6 weeks (normal birth), if your gynaecologist allows mild bike training. After a Caesarean you should wait 2 months and then only if your gynaecologist allows mild bike training you can start.

I am breast feeding. Can I still do Hypoxi Training?

HYPOXI-Training with the Trainer L250 or S120 is possible, but it is important that the temperature of your legs increase. HYPOXI-Dermology treatments and Vacunaut are NOT possible whilst breast feeding.

My training sessions are late in the evening, is it necessary to eat?

No, if you have had enough nutrients (also proteins) during the day then you do not need to eat anything late. If you cancel the meal completely your body will have a very high post exercise energy consumption. It is important to ensure that the body has got enough liquids (0 calories).
