So what is EWOT and how does it work?
At The Cardiff Wellness Lounge, we offer EWOT sessions right in The Therapy Lounge, utilising our advanced Peloton bike.
Discover EWOT Therapy in Cardiff
Our approach is straightforward yet powerful. We employ a specialised oxygen bag infused with pure oxygen, which you inhale through a comfortable full-face mask. This takes place during controlled exercise sessions following a gentle warm-up routine. The goal is to elevate your pulse rate and breathing to a comfortable level, creating increased turbulence within your blood flow and lungs. This optimal environment encourages the maximum exchange of oxygen into your system.
Maintaining a Harmonious Balance
Your body has a remarkable way of balancing the carbon dioxide produced during exercise, maintaining a state of equilibrium known as homeostasis. In just around 20 minutes, a typical session achieves an increase in oxygen levels within both your red blood cells and importantly, the blood plasma. This surge in oxygen-rich blood circulates throughout your entire body, triggering a renewal process. Notably, the enriched blood plasma can penetrate tissues that are too minute for red blood cells to access, including the endothelium lining the blood vessels.
Transformative Benefits Await
After just a few sessions, significant enhancements in certain chronic conditions are frequently observed. Surprisingly, you'll experience a lack of muscle burn post-exercise, as the oxygen counteracts any accumulation of lactic acid. Our dedicated practitioners closely match exercise levels to your individual condition, ensuring your safety and comfort throughout the entire process. This means that even those who face physical limitations can often find a suitable way to benefit from this remarkable therapy.
At The Cardiff Wellness Lounge, our commitment is to provide you with an exceptional EWOT experience that promotes well-being.
Option for seated therapy
Seated Oxygen Therapy may provide relief for conditions such as mild fatigue, stress, and low energy levels. It can aid in enhancing mental clarity, promoting relaxation, and supporting overall well-being.
Seated Oxygen Therapy offers a serene 30-minute session where you'll be enveloped by a cocoon of concentrated oxygen from our specialised reservoir. Inhale deeply as the oxygen flows, creating a serene ambiance that invites you to unwind and restore balance.
