CVAC Q & A
What is Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning™ (CVAC)?
CVAC is a process that you can use to boost your athletic performance, whether you’re a seasoned athlete or severely out of shape. You can use the process to supplement your regular exercise regimen and improve your overall health.
What should I expect during a CVAC treatment?
During the 20-minute CVAC process at Vibrance Health, you sit in a small but comfortable pod that does all of the work for you. The clean, fresh air inside the pod fluctuates in pressure to simulate changes akin to going from high altitudes all the way down to sea-level. It might feel like the temperature is changing inside the pod, but it’s just the drastic changes in pressure.
As the air pressure inside the pod fluctuates, your body adapts rapidly to the changes. The changes that your body experiences are similar to the changes that happen when you perform a high-intensity, full-body workout. You’ll leave the pod feeling like you just finished resistance training without the joint pain and other side effects of a typical workout.
What are the benefits of CVAC?
CVAC sessions provide many benefits to your body and the way it functions. In fact, the benefits of CVAC are very similar to the health benefits that you get from both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. However, you shouldn’t use the process as a complete substitute for exercise. The benefits of CVAC include:
Increased strength and stamina
Stamina refers to the amount of time that you can exert yourself without becoming exhausted. CVAC helps you maximize your oxygen intake so that you can work out for longer without tiring. It also helps your muscles use oxygen more efficiently, which improves your strength.
The pressure changes that your body undergoes with CVAC may help improve the quality of your sleep at night.
The CVAC process helps your lymphatic system function more efficiently. This means that your body is better able to eliminate waste products, which helps to reduce swelling and inflammation. This helps you recover faster after a heavy workout.
Better brain functioning
The CVAC process improves blood flow to your brain. This helps fight fogginess and confusion so you can think sharply.
