I suffer with arthritis in my hands, and back/hip pain after an 18 feet fall 5 years ago.The Far Infrared Sauna CocoonTM has been marvellous. My arthritis is much improved and It relieves the pain in my back/hip.
I am a 49 year old personal trainer. Exercise has always been a major part of my life. In terms of time spent exercising, + 20 hours per week, I could be classed as an athlete. My diet is largely healthy – organic foods, fruit and veggies as far as possible, whole foods and minimal processed foodstuffs. I am on the wellness side of the continuum.
I first started using the sauna about 6 months ago. The very first thing that astounded me was sleep. I’ve always slept well. I’m tired at the end of the day and go to sleep and wake up easily. Ever since I had my children I sleep lightly – my children cough, snore, turn, I hear it. After using the sauna only 2or 3 times my sleep became much deeper and when my head hit the pillow I knew absolutely nothing till morning and when I woke up I was refreshed. The deepest most wonderful sleep I have ever had.
The days I sauna there is always this same glorious effect.
The second thing that happened was equally dramatic. I was working with a client on a bike that monitors heart rate. Doing this particular workout my heart rate would generally be +165 beats per minute; this day my heart rate would not go above 140bpm and I was still able to produce the same work load or burn the same amount of calories with much less strain on the heart. This effect remains when I sauna regularly. Also, at rest, my normal heart rate is + 54bpm but when I’m using the sauna regularly this goes down to +45bpm. These effects are beneficial and healthy.
At Christmas time I developed back pain and sciatica. This happens when I neglect to balance my own exercise program. My physio with acupuncture and my osteopath manipulated but made no difference. I happened to do an unusually long session in the sauna( I fell asleep) and lo and behold my back pains disappeared and have not returned.
The last and no less amazing effect the FIR sauna has had has been the effect it has had on my memory and thinking. Since having children these have never really recovered. The sauna, used regularly, has improved my cognitive function immeasurably.
Thanks so much for arranging for the delivery of my Far Infrared CocoonTM yesterday, the best birthday present I could have hoped for.
I tried the sauna this morning. The Far Infrared Sauna gives excellent results, really effective heat distribution, with really fantastically user-friendly controls.
We appreciate the intelligent design and high quality of your equipment in comparison with the other types of blanket on the market.
At the beginning of the sauna I went in with quite acute lower back pain and after half an hour I came out and the pain had eased considerably. I also feel extremely relaxed and at ease. What a wonderful start to my new treatment!
Once again, Mark, thanks so much.
I had a low back whiplash injury as a result of a car accident. Although I did the usual things of going to see my osteopath and then a physiotherapist and massage therapist, the day long ache in my lower back continued.
I purchased a Get Fitt Far Infrared system and found that each time I used it my back was pain free for a little longer each day. It was an essential part of my journey to recovery. I would strongly recommend FIR and Get Fitt.
I have suffered from Fibromyalgia for many years. I was never one to use medication so I searched for alternative remedy’s to manage my pain. I came across Get Fitt and decided to give them a call.
The team was very helpful in explaining how Far Infrared works which was of great interest to me. I decided to go ahead and purchase my Get Fitt Far infrared Sauna System.
At first I was a little too eager and went on for the full hour nearly every day. My body wasn’t ready for that kind of detox so with the advice from the Get Fitt support team, I reduced the amount of time spent on the bed which helped a great deal.
I have had my Far Infrared system for over a year now. Detoxing this way has been a great benefit to me and my symptoms and the heat helps my muscles to relax more and helps with the pain also.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team and the founder of Get Fitt for my wonderful Sauna.
First I must say this is one of the best buy I've done till now. It really helped with my back problem (shoulders and lower back). Even my physiotherapist would notice the difference. It's helped me a lot during last winter which has been long, very cold and humid.
Thanks to the FIR Cocoon the sensation of having the cold in my bones was gone. I also used to feel itchy quite often and this has all disappeared completely. I must thank you Mark as well as your team for the support you gave during the first weeks when I received the product. I felt I met a very caring team. Nowadays I use it once a week or even once every 2 weeks and I don't regret one second my purchase.
Thank you again.
I have ME and have been using the Far Infra Red Sauna for over 18 months now and have found it to be a great help in aiding my recovery.
It eases my pain, and blood tests have shown that the high levels of pesticide that I had in my system are now down to a trace.
I have always found the Get-Fitt support team to be very encouraging. The help and advice on general health and nutrition I received fro mthe team I have found invaluable.
I am very grateful for all the wonderful support and expert advice that has been given to me.
Cervical Degeneration & Pinched Nerves
I have been given many treatments over the last 10 years to alleviate neck pain caused by cervical degeneration. The pinched nerves in my neck caused pain and tingling down the left arm. I have attended pain clinics, physiotherapy, tai-chi, to name but a few. Two courses of radio frequency denervation cut the pain signals but over time the nerves regenerated so the pain came back.
However, since using the Cocoon under the guidance of the Get Fitt support team, my nerve pain has almost disappeared. I am able to do many things such as gardening without being in agonising pain. Gentle exercises are a part of my daily routine – it is as if I have moved back in time. May it long continue.
Patricia (aged 67)
Ps. This time last year I was not able to do gardening or exercise without being in agony all the time. I can't believe that the cocoon has made such a difference to my life style and in such a short time
