Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning
Good physical conditioning is a primary component of a healthy, balanced lifestyle and it is well understood that certain adaptations stimulated by aerobic activity have a dramatic effect on all of the body’s energy systems. By engaging in activities that provide these adaptations, a person can strive to live at their highest potential.
As an example, in a person with a low level of fitness these adaptations can stimulate regulation of the body’s energy systems, promote proper organ function, and support an efficient metabolism. In a conditioned person, these same adaptations will optimize the body’s systems that are not out of balance.
The CVAC (Cyclic Variations in Adaptive ConditioningTM) Process provides the benefits of traditional aerobic and anaerobic exercise without the joint stress and physical exertion that can be associated with these activities. The CVAC Process does this by challenging the body with the increased effort required to adapt to dynamically varied, patterned changes in air pressure.
One university-based study of the CVAC Process performed with athletes showed great improvement in the athletes’ utilization of oxygen. A placebo- controlled university-based study with sedentary men using the CVAC Process for 10 weeks resulted in improved blood glucose levels similar to the results of a traditional exercise program. Their counterparts, who received a placebo, did not achieve similar improvements2.
What happens in a CVAC Session?
Air is steadily drawn out of the CVAC Pod to create a low-pressure environment. Fresh, filtered air is then dynamically returned providing changes in pressure and varying the density of the air. The body’s energy systems get a workout while the lymphatic system receives a ‘touchless massage,’ that facilitates the removal of waste products.
How safe is the CVAC Process?
People at all levels of fitness have taken CVAC Sessions totaling thousands of hours. Ear-clearing techniques are learned prior to CVAC Sessions to reduce the chances of any ear discomfort.
HOW IT WORKS & BENEFITS
The increased physical workload of your exercise or athletic activity causes the parts of the cell that create energy to become stronger and more efficient. Your energy output for use during future activity is improved; however, increased physical workload can often be accompanied by muscle tearing, joint stress, and lactic acid buildup.
The CVAC (Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning) Process creates an atmospheric workload that challenges the body using natural and tolerable stressors. Changes in pressure set up waves of tension and resolution; in this way, CVAC Sessions allow an athlete to continue to gain improvement in energy production even on rest days taken to avoid overtraining.
CVAC Sessions will improve your performance and endurance naturally and faster by improving your recovery.
The 20-minute CVAC Session sequences both work and recovery. While your body’s cellular energy-making machine is being enhanced, your body is also receiving assistance in eliminating the waste products naturally produced during past intense workouts. Your body’s pipes are cleaned, allowing easier elimination of waste production in the next intense exercise session.
Adaptation-based physical conditioning versus altitude training
We recognize that endurance athletes often engage in altitude training; however, that training differs greatly from the adaptation-based conditioning provided by the CVAC Process. The hypoxic stress component of the CVAC Process is brief, transient, and pulsatile; it does not compare to the static, long-term exposures to unnaturally lowered oxygen concentrations associated with nitrogen tents, a popular form of “altitude training”. With the CVAC Process, dynamic changes in pressure are applied to fresh room air only.

CVAC & PEMF
CVAC and PEMF combined can produce a synergistic result far greater than each device on its own. PEMF will charge cell membranes to unlock the stagnation of clumped cells, resulting in red blood cells that repel each other. This opens the window for greater oxygen uptake, cell metabolism, waste removal and ATP cycling. After a PEMF session, a CVAC session will be enhanced.
