  • Hyperthermia: The HOCATT™ therapy uses heat to elevate the body's core temperature, prompting sweating. This natural process aids in expelling toxins from the body.
  • Transdermal Ozone: Ozone, a highly reactive form of oxygen, is infused into the sauna chamber via steam. As you sweat, ozone molecules penetrate your skin, aiding in purifying and oxygenating your body at a cellular level.
  • Pure Oxygen Breathing: During HOCATT™ therapy, you'll also inhale pure oxygen. This supports your body's natural healing processes and enhances overall energy levels.
  • High-Intensity PEMF: Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) therapy is used to stimulate cellular activity, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
  • Microcurrents: Low-level electrical currents are applied to specific points on the body, aiding in restoring balance and promoting healing.
  • Far Infrared: Far infrared rays penetrate deep into the body, enhancing relaxation, detoxification, and circulation.
  • CO2/Carbonic Acid: By introducing carbon dioxide (CO2) into the sauna chamber, HOCATT™ enhances oxygen delivery to cells, promoting detoxification and improved circulation.
  • Essential Oil Infusions: Throughout the therapy session, essential oils are diffused into the chamber, offering a range of therapeutic benefits such as relaxation, pain relief, and immune support.
  • Photon Color Lights: Different colored lights are used to stimulate various energy points on the body, helping to balance and align energy flow.
  • UV Irradiation: Controlled exposure to ultraviolet light can help stimulate the immune system and promote overall wellness.


Pure, humidified oxygen runs through a special oxygen jet to the nose and mouth, boosting Oxygen saturation in the body during the HOCATT session.

Steam and Far Infrared Rays (FIR) heat up the body. The HOCATT has FIR pads located at the foot area and a large FIR pad behind the back area.

CO2 is infused in the beginning of the HOCATT™ session to react with the steam and create Carbonic Acid. Carbonic Acid is one of the very few compounds that naturally, and without any side effects, increases the uptake and delivery of Oxygen at the cellular level (aka the Bohr Effect).

The Activated Oxygen cycle starts as soon as the CO2 cycle has ended, and continues for the duration of the HOCATT™ session. The activated oxygen reacts with the steam to form activated oxygen products on the surface of the skin. Thanks to the CO2 pre-cycle, the efficacy of the activated oxygen cycle in the HOCATT™ is greatly potentiated compared to other Wellness Saunas

Special Micro-Currents may be selected to stimulate the body via the hands and/or feet. This feature can be used both during a HOCATT™ session and as a stand-alone. The frequencies are pre-programmed for your convenience, and there are over 100 programs to choose from!

High-Intensity PEMFs (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields)* can be added to the HOCATT™ session. The HOCATT™ PEMF model has special PEMF coils built into the chamber walls, allowing for a HUGO™ High-Intensity PEMF driver to be connected directly to the HOCATT™

Essential Oils can be added to a special compartment within the HOCATT's steam jet. The essential oils are infused with the steam as it fills the chamber, making this a transdermal application. Dried leaves of aromatic plants may also be used instead of essential oils.

Full spectrum color light fills the chamber. Two color stars change color randomly in multi-color crossfades. The HOCATT™ utilizes all colors of the spectrum, from soothing and relaxing to balancing and energizing.

At the end of the session the entire volume of steam is extracted into the large-volume activated
carbon external charcoal destructor. This prevents releasing the Activated-Oxygen mixture into
the room when the chamber doors are opened.
