CVAC™ Power Pod

The CVAC™ Power Pod

The CVAC™ Power Pod

CVAC™ stands for “Cyclic Variation Altitude Conditioning™” and represents an unparalleled approach for improving the body’s energy system functions. There are only around 75 Pods in use around the world with about half publicly available.  Individuals who own their own CVAC include the world’s top tennis player, a renown motivational guru, and a few Royal Families.

About CVAC™ Power Pod

The Pod is a unique cellular exercise and conditioning modality that stimulates the body’s natural adaptation responses.  It achieves benefits similar to those gained through traditional aerobic and anaerobic exercise, but without the physical exertion associated with traditional exercise. Just two hours a week sitting in the Pod has been shown to boost performance and provide multitude wellness and performance benefits including:

Improved Health – Better Sleep – Raster Recovery – Increased Performance – Increased Endurance.


Whole Body Cellular Exercise

The Power Pod uses dynamic changes in air pressure to exercise every part of the body at once. Vacuum pressure and atmospheric changes are transmitted to the body and cells, including the brain, in a 20-minute session, enhancing lymphatic flow, and glymphatic flow. 

Sit in the Pod and exercise while working on your computer or reading a book – what a great way to get a workout!  The CVAC is ideal for those attempting to improve or recover their wellness and performance, and especially those who are prevented from normal exercise due to condition or injury. CVAC calls it “effort-free physical conditioning™”

Cellular Detox and Mitochondria Biogenesis

The benefits of detoxing the body are well documented. While in the Pod, the entire body, blood cells, organs and muscle are rhythmically compressed and relaxed, as if you have just engaged in a vigorous exercise session. Simultaneously, CVAC’s pressure changes help to clean out the body’s engines as the pressure cycling expands and contracts the body’s cells. 

The rapid changes in pressure acts like a vacuum cleaner for the body’s cells – including the Brain. Better fluid flow reduces inflammation, removes cellular waste and toxins and increases oxygen absorption for faster recovery.

The Pod’s unique ability to simultaneously exercise and detox help the body to build more mitochondria.  Why is that good?  Additional mitochondria can translate into having more sustained energy. The technical term is called “mitochondria biogenesis.”

Benefits of Body Stressor

New research is showing the benefits of short-term stressors for longevity and anti-aging. Examples of stressors can be bathing in very cold water, going on a fast, or doing intense exercise.

During a CVAC session, dramatic changes are taking place at the cellular level as the body experiences dynamically changing, varied vacuum pressures. Dynamic inflow and outflow of fresh filtered air provides changes in pressure and varies the density of the air. The entire body is challenged with the increased effort required to adapt to the dynamic ever-changing environment, without the joint stress and physical exertion that are associated with traditional exercise.

Since the body must adapt to the changes in pressure, every cell in the body receives benefits:

  • A natural, low-pressure environment supports improved breathing.

  • Enhanced use of oxygen for the brain and the body’s tissues. 

  • Improved circulation and mobilization of fluid in the lymphatic system. 

  • Stimulation of cerebral spinal fluid (CFS) flow are integral to the whole-body conditioning.

  • Enhanced overall sleep quality and more restful healing sleep, fine tunes mental acuity, improves brain performance and cognitive functioning.

Simulates Altitude Conditioning

The Pod offers all the benefits of high-altitude acclimatization or conditioning, with any of the associated negative side effects.

During the session dynamic changes in air pressure within the Pod simulate variations in altitude and adaptation. This short-term oxygen deprivation, causing the body to boost the production of Erythropoietin (EPO) which increases red blood cell production as well as an increase in capillary and mitochondrial density. 

To give you an idea of why this can be beneficial, some athletes have been caught cheating by using “blood doping” (spinning their blood down to remove and store red blood cells to inject on the day of an event).  What are the benefits? More red blood cells equals more oxygen and increased performance. The CVAC power pod enhances the body’s natural reaction boost red blood cell production which in turn can help improve performance.

Patient stories

From O2 Health Lab Reviews in Newport Beach, CA
Carly SegalCarly Segal ★★★★★ I recently suffered from a concussion after fainting and hitting my head. I was experiencing post concussion symptoms with brain fatigue as well as light, noise and screen sensitivity. I decided to try the hyperbaric oxygen chamber for the first time at O2. I instantly felt at ease when I entered the chamber. The staff here made me feel very safe and calm, and I truly felt like I was in the best hands. After this first experience I knew I would be coming back, and I booked a week straight of back to back sessions. After my sessions concluded I noticed big differences in my energy levels and cognitive abilities. I'd highly recommend the hyperbaric and O2 to anyone in need of healing as there were many benefits to this therapy.john gardnerjohn gardner ★★★★★ O2 Health Lab is the Fountain of Youth! I came here suffering from decades of overwork and high stress. I was exhausted, constantly sick and had crippling brain fog. I run several small businesses and perform at a very high level, usually 7 days a week. Just entering in my passwords to log in to my bank account seemed like an exhausting task. I'd lay on the floor of my office for hours a day, for months. I started doing hyperbaric sessions at O2 and about 7 sessions in it was like a switch flipped and I felt like my old self again. I had the energy to enjoy and live my life. I'm in my 40's and decided to embrace the treatments at O2. I do Hyperbaric, Red Light Therapy, Cryo, and Pulse EMF. Consistency with these modalities have recharged the cells of my body and I feel like I am in my 20's again. My skin glows and everyone comments on how healthy and happy I am. Feeling the energy to live life makes one happy. I see professional athletes at O2 and am encouraged to know that I am supporting my health and life force in the same manner they are. Mark and Marvin are happy to discuss the benefits of the different treatment options and extremely knowledgeable. I feel O2 Health Lab saved me because I can live my life to the fullest with the natural energy from the cells of my body performing more efficiently. Your cells are little engines that intake energy and excrete waste. The treatment at O2 Health Labs kicks them into gear again. I recommend O2 to everyone I know! If you want to have the natural energy to get back into the gym and live life to the fullest I strongly recommend O2 Health Lab.Victoria CordovaVictoria Cordova ★★★★★ I’m so grateful & appreciative to everyone at the O2 health lab especially their kindness for helping me with my burn wound.

I found the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber to be extremely healing during my recovery from breast cancer. I went in for five treatments (starting only one day after my surgery) and I believe it cut my recovery time in half. My surgery was on a Friday and by the next Friday I was having dinner out with my husband. I had another five hyperbaric oxygen treatments at the end of my radiation and only three days after I completed, I was in New York able to walk 15,000 steps a day. I also found the staff to be so friendly and professional. Amy, one of the staff members in particular, would always greet me with a warm hello and smile each time I walked in. All the staff members make you feel as if you had been coming there for years. I truly believe my recovery process would have been much different without the treatments I received, I would highly recommend O2 Health Labs!kristin richeykristin richey ★★★★★ I just completed 10 sessions. I amVery impressed by the staff and their great energy. I always felt welcomed and comfortable. I still need to add notes session to help with a healing issue I’m dealing with but I love my hour in the hyperbaric tube, watching Netflix time goes fast and I’m always comfortable 👍Robin LittleRobin Little ★★★★★ My visit was a gift! I am a recent cancer survivorMy client & his wife Dan Callahan & Maureen gave me this to help me along with my recovery ❤️‍🩹 After visiting it was the BEST I have felt in many months! Slept well & pain free, tons of energy felt like the old me!!! THANK YOU DAN & MAUREEN to help me keep fighting my lung cancer🙏🏻Leslie HarperLeslie Harper ★★★★★ If you are looking for a way to be pro-active in your healing process, then I strongly recommend spending a few days at the O2 Health Lab. I'm not much of a person who can sit in front of the TV to pass time while I heal; I need to be doing something. I had three sessions with the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, and it expedited healing; my bruises disappeared in a few days. At my post-op appointment, the doctor was amazed at how fast I healed!Gysel BequerGysel Bequer ★★★★★ I’ve had such amazing experiences at O2 Health Lab doing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Thermo therapy, Cryotherapy, and Compression therapy. I recently tried Lightbed therapy on their LightStem LED bed and felt so energized after! The staff there is so sweet and warm with lots of good insight. Sometimes it’s hard to know what healing technology will support you in the way you need and they have helped me get to know my body and these therapies so much better. I would give a shout out to one of the staff members but all of them are amazing so you can’t go wrong!Grisel BequerGrisel Bequer ★★★★★ I’ve been coming to O2 for years now.

Helped me tremendously to expedite my healing after surgery. The staff are so helpful and beyond nice!Kyle CarbonneauKyle Carbonneau ★★★★★ Amazing experience, staff go out of their way to treat you like family. I just completed 40 hyperbaric oxygen treatments at O2 Health Lab for multiple concussion syndrome and mold toxicity. During the treatments, I immediately saw an improvement in my cognitive function. Now at the end, I can truly say I have my life back and am watching as my body continues to heal (the first 30 days after the 40-treatment cycle is where significant progress occurs).

Front desk, 2. cleanliness, & 3. finally price.1. Front Desk Staff: 5/5Extremely helpful and wanted to make sure that we paid the best rate since it was our first time. He gave us a tour of the entire place and pointed out exactly what each machine helped with. While we were doing the cryo treatment he helped take our mind of the -240 chill shocking our bodies with friendly banter.2. Cleanliness: 5/5When you do the cryo treatment you walk into a changing room that has clean socks, gloves, and robes. After we changed back into our regular clothes they took the everything we had on and replaced it with clean garments.3. Price: 5/5I looked at a couple of other places before deciding to try O2 and they definitely have the cheapest price. They have great new customer specials so you can try the cryo. They’re also on class pass and have some great deals!Cassondra toddCassondra todd ★★★★★ This place has changed my life! From the fantastic team they have taking care of you, to the exceptional service offerings,, you will feel transformed by the experience. I have had severe sleep problems, thyroid issues, adrenal fatigue and overall lack of energy, I run at a fast pace in general. Having consistent sessions of Hyoerbaric, Cryo, with the other treatments offered in their comprehensive program, I feel amazing! I have had to travel for work and trust me there is a noticeable difference in my health, energy and sleep when I’m gone from O2 Health Lab for too long. I’m completely hooked for life! I have to add that my skin also looks so much better and only keeps improving .... I am truly grateful everyday for all they do to take care of me, everyone needs O2 Health Lab in their life !!!Laura SwansonLaura Swanson ★★★★★ I was referred by my surgeon for Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment in Costa Mesa after reconstructive surgery. The treatments were a success! The staff and facility are amazing!! They all made me feel comfortable and explained the treatment thoroughly. Chris and Shawna were very helpful as I was a bit nervous the first time. They were very calming and all my treatments went smoothly. I work for another surgeon and we refer patients for Hyperbaric Treatment frequently. Without a doubt we will be referring our patients here!! Top notch facility and staff!!!Jason ChaconJason Chacon ★★★★★ I just finished a very invigorating combination of things at 02 health lab. First I woke my body up with their Cryo chamber. It was SOOO Cold but really got my blood flowing & I felt great after. Next I supercharged my blood cells with the hyperbolic oxygen treatment & the near infrared light therapy. Im leaving feeling amazing & recharged. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!Dillon ConnollyDillon Connolly ★★★★★ I've heard about really miraculous things that have come from doing hyperbaric oxygen treatment, so I started treatment with these guys. The owners have very big hearts and a lot of experience, and they worked out an affordable treatment plan with me since I would be doing so many sessions. Their number one priority is helping you with your health and it shows.
