Cellgym – Training for your cells
With the revolutionary Cellgym method at Lanserhof Lans you can gently optimise your cellular energy production on a couch. Lie down, put on a breathing mask, breathe and relax. It´s that simple with this specially modified form of altitude training. The difference to a "normal" altitude training is that you do not "train" at a constant altitude, but in a continuous change of altitude, comparable to repeatedly walking uphill and downhill. This effect is achieved by alternating between a time-reduced oxygen supply and an increased oxygen supply under normobaric conditions. The damaged mitochondria ("power stations" of the cells) are destroyed and an impulse is given for the reproduction of healthy mitochondria.
The effect of this therapy can be felt very quickly. It improves your general wellbeing and strengthens the immune system.
Procedure of a treatment
At the beginning of the IHHT there is an introductory conversation and a hypoxia test. Based on this, the parameters are individually determined. During the 45-minute IHHT session you lie comfortably on a wellness couch, while your heart rate, oxygen partial pressure in the tissue and breathing rate are measured and continuously monitored by software and biofeedback measuring devices. This results in an automatic regulation and control of the intensity according to the individual parameters (biofeedback method). Using this method an under or overtraining can be avoided and an optimal intensity can be achieved. The course of each unit is documented.
Who is Cellgym suitable for?
The IHHT is suitable for all persons who want to use the positive effects of hypoxia and hyperoxia. These include, for example, improving general well-being, increasing physical and mental performance, improving stress tolerance and weight reduction.
If IHHT is used as the sole method, 10 sessions should be held in connection with medical prevention. No less than 2, no more than 3 sessions per week should be held.
