Can you tell me about the Vital Dome – what is it and what does it do?
Vital Dome is an innovative range of high-end far infrared treatment beds, which was born out of several years of professional use and study of infratherapy concepts.
Based on a patented technology that takes infratherapy to a new level of performance and comfort, Vital Dome offers gentle treatments based on natural warming, which has been proven to be efficient for overall wellbeing. Vital Dome can be used for detoxification, anti-ageing, sports recovery, sleep improvement, stress management – and even productivity in the workplace.
What is far infrared technology, and how does it work?
Far infrared (FIR) is a vital radiation of the sun and a natural and essential part of growth and healing – life on earth would simply not be possible without FIR. Not only is FIR absorbed by the human body, but it is also emitted by the body as its natural source of heat. This natural process makes FIR the most vital and utterly harmless type of radiation for the human body.
Infratherapy consists of emulating, controlling and sending FIR towards a body for rebalancing, regenerating or healing tissues through a 100 per cent natural warming process.
This method was born in Japan 50 years ago, and has been used all over the world since then, in everything from incubators for premature babies to infrared lamps that help repair damaged tissues.
Simply explained, this is how infratherapy works: FIR profoundly warms the body directly at the cellular level. Therefore, it does not heat the air or skin, and will not burn the skin. Unlike a hammam or traditional sauna, infratherapy heats up body temperature from the inside, creating a natural detoxifying sweating process, much like when you exercise.
In order for the sessions to be efficient and comfortable, FIR emissions must be fully controlled and perfectly distributed over the body or toward specific zones; this is precisely where Vital Dome excels and can be considered as a real breakthrough, thanks to its design and technology.
What are the benefits of treatments with the Vital Dome?
The natural sweating process from treatments with the Vital Dome has many benefits: it strengthens the immune system, lowers systolic and diastolic blood pressure and helps with blood circulation, reduces muscle tension and pain, and stimulates collagen production, which is not only a natural anti-ageing process, but also stimulates the production of mood-enhancing dopamine and endorphins.
The relaxation and detoxification effects are immediate after one session, and deepen with time. With an average of two sessions per week, most people see marked results after two weeks.
What sets the Vital Dome apart from other infrared equipment on the market?
Before Vita Dome, infratherapy was used with low-tech equipment such as wraps, lamps and infrared sauna cabins, which are limited in terms of FIR emission and distribution accuracy.
Vital Dome’s power and accuracy in terms of treatments and benefits to customers is unique, thanks to its far infrared emission design and its patented controller.
Vital Dome provides a 360-degree, fully controlled infratherapy, and its limitless programming technology means it can integrate any infrared-based protocol recommended by scientists or healthcare professionals – now or in the future.
Its proprietary technology, alongside French design and craftsmanship traditions, mean that Vital Dome is a product that combines performance, luxury and comfort.
How do you envision spas using the Vital Dome, and how can it improve their business?
Vital Dome is a simple and cost-effective wellness solution: a Vital Dome session is 99 per cent hands-free, with staff only needing to supply towels and launch the session.
Vital Dome helps enhance spa services and increase spend per customer; the benefits of massage and body treatments are tremendously improved when combined with a Vital Dome infratherapy session. Customer loyalty is also helped through the Vital Dome, as many clients come back for repeat visits.
Most Vital Dome clients see a return on investment in eight to 12 months.
