We all know that exercise is good for us, supporting a healthy mind and body and optimizing our overall well-being. We also know that workouts improve our fitness. But why does exercise result in improved performance?
It’s because working out places increasing demands on our body’s energy systems, and in order to cope, the body must rise to the challenge. As an example, think back to when you first started a weight bearing exercise, and how little you could lift. As you pushed your body to lift more, it responded by growing larger muscles and improving its capacity to handle heavier weights.
CVAC therapy works in largely the same way. Except instead of challenging your body with increasing weights or faster run times, the CVAC pod challenges your body by varying the air pressure in the pod throughout the session. And just as with exercise, your body rises to the challenge, improving its capacity for strength and fitness in the process.
Offering improved oxygen utilization and glycolytic energy production, combined with enhanced recovery in a controlled environment, the CVAC rapid rejuvenation facility offered at BHRC medical spas is at the forefront of sports performance technology.
Whether you’re a competitive athlete or exercise for your own health and well-being, the results are consistent across the board: CVAC can provide you with improved performance in whatever activity you choose.
Improved Performance With Altitude Training
A Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning, or CVAC session, is similar to a workout at high altitude. This means that oxygen levels and the barometric pressure you encounter will be different from that at sea level, so your body must work harder for the same physical effect.
High-performance athletes have known this for decades, often choosing high-altitude training destinations to gain a competitive edge. Now, you can achieve similar results from the comfort of a BHRC medical spa nearest you.
But rather than exerting yourself with a rigorous workout, during your CVAC session you will sit comfortably in the self-contained CVAC pod (you can even bring a book or your cell phone with you to help you pass the time) and and relax for 20 minutes while the CVAC machine assists you in improving your performance.
Performance Improvements at a Cellular Level
Normal physical activity takes place at the whole-body level, but what you may not have known is that your body actually adapts to physical training at a cellular level. The CVAC machine uses this concept to generate cellular conditioning within your body through cyclic barometric pressure, temperature and air density fluctuations within the controlled environment of the CVAC pod.
As these changes occur, your cells produce changes that are equivalent to a physical workout in many ways. Unlike real life altitude training, the CVAC method is able to offer a distinct advantage to your performance, cycling through altitude changes over 200 times in a 20-minute session.

The CVAC Process: Improve Your Body, Effort Free
If you’re looking for increased stamina, better recovery time after workouts, improved sleep and overall endurance, then you need to consider the CVAC. Developed over 30 years ago, the Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning (CVAC) process utilizes changes in air pressure to improve your overall fitness without the physical stresses of traditional exercise.
With applications for wellness, athletic performance and medicine, the process adapts your body to various rhythm-based changes, stimulating your body’s natural environmental adaptation response. What does that mean, and how can it help improve your body?
By cycling your body through various changes to pressure, temperature, and air, CVAC teaches your body to improve its adaptation response to stressors. The CVAC can help improve responses to resistance exercise, adaptation to high altitude, temperature, barometric pressure and more, and provides conditioning in all these regards without requiring any exertion on the part of the participant.
Simply: the CVAC can enhance your ability to exert yourself physically by conditioning your physicality through strategic changes in pressure, air, temperature, and more. These are changes that one could experience through weeks of conditioning through strategically planned runs or other types of workouts, but the CVAC allows for this conditioning to take place with no exertion necessary.
The CVAC process takes place in the CVAC Pod: a comfortable, single occupant chamber in which a participant sits during his or her treatment. Each participant’s response to the pressure changes is unique, but on the whole, the CVAC process increases the participant’s ability to adapt to various physical environments.
Who couldn’t benefit from improved fitness?
No matter your level of physicality—from Olympian to couch potato—the CVAC can help improve your physicality. Users of the CVAC have reported increased stamina, enhanced athletic performance, better quality sleep, and improved feeling of alertness and mental acuity. With the CVAC, you can accomplish all these achievements with no effort necessary.
