How safe is the CVAC Process?
Individuals at all levels of fitness seeking to improve their physical conditioning have taken CVAC™ Sessions totaling thousands of hours. Ear-clearing techniques are learned prior to CVAC Sessions to reduce the chances of any ear discomfort.
How does the CVAC Process exercise your body?
Dynamic changes to low-pressure air inside the CVAC Pod provide varying loads patterned to cause optimal adaptation to the body’s energy systems
Is the CVAC Process altitude training?
No, it is not altitude training.
The goal of the CVAC Process is not to cause an acclimatization response. The goal is to provide adaptation-based physical conditioning.
The CVAC Process exposes the body to changes in pressure, which set up waves of tension and resolution. The body’s adaptation response to these changes naturally and inevitably results in improved physical conditioning. This adaptation response is comparable to what happens when a person participates in physical activities that facilitate body adaptation such as swimming, yoga, interval and resistance training. All of these processes employ tension and resolution
Why is a CVAC Pod different from a hyperbaric chamber?
The CVAC Pod involves a low-pressure, dynamically varying environment. Fresh air is pumped in and pulled out. The hyperbaric chamber provides a static, high-pressure environment that is of high oxygen content.
What benefits can I gain from the CVAC Process?
Benefits similar to those gained through traditional aerobic and anaerobic exercise; allowing you to achieve better oxygen utilization, improved anaerobic energy production and improved metabolic waste removal.
What Happens During a CVAC Session?
You will sit back and relax in the CVAC Pod. As the pressure changes, there are changes in the temperature and density of the air. There will be brief periods of warmer air and of cooler air. You will need to clear your ears as the pressure changes. In a CVAC Session, air is drawn out of the CVAC Pod, creating a low-pressure environment, and making the air thinner and cooler. Fresh, filtered air is dynamically returned to the CVAC Pod; this varies the density of the air.
