The SpaCapsule massage and relaxation station is a hydrotherapy and hydromassage unit designed to reduce stress and improve circulation throughout the body. It is currently available at many medical spas and cosmetic surgery centers across the country, and is often used as a complement to some types of body contouring treatments and procedures.
The capsule allows the individual to lie down in a comfortable, enclosed unit and enjoy a mechanical massage. Some sessions include the release of aromatherapy oils. Now, the company behind SpaCapsule reports that sessions may also offer some anti-cellulite and weight loss benefits.
Dermscan Group is currently running clinical trials on weight loss and cellulite reduction after a SpaCapsule session. According to Dr. Ella Frankel, Chairman and CEO of Simulated Environment Concepts, makers of the SpaCapsule, “We created the SpaCapsule with the intent to aid in weight-loss and cellulite treatment…and with hundreds of machines having been quietly sold over the past nine years, we’ve collected sufficient evidence to document the cellulite reduction and weight loss benefits of our SpaCapsule. However, we’re at the stage where we would rather have a reputable third party like the Dermscan Group verify our assertions, adding transparency.”
The SpaCapsule delivers a customized Oxygenated Hydro-Massage treatment which activates the tissues and increasers circulation. In some people, the pressure from the pulsating water jets are enough to strengthen and tone the body, and increase blood flow. The system may also be effective for boosting collagen and elastin production, which can create a shapelier, more toned body.
The SpaCapsule is currently available at several hotels and resorts, health and fitness centers, spas, salons, medical spas and some tanning salons. Each session can be customized to include aromatherapy, audio and video sessions, and deep massage and target various areas of the body during each treatment.
