You’ve probably noticed the big ol’ tent sitting in the athlete lounge next to the sauna.

If you are curious about what it is, it is the newest addition to our recovery tools. In addition to the sauna, the Rejuvenator is designed to increase the barometric pressure inside of the chamber in order to help you recover faster.

From The Rejuvenator website:

Are you sensitive to changes in the weather?

Do you experience weather-related pain?

If so, falling barometric pressure could be the culprit.

By increasing pressure by 5%, The Rejuvenator provides a natural method for reducing aches & pain throughout the body. It not only provides pain relief, but also improves energy levels, mood & emotions, encourages more restful sleep, and improves overall health and quality of life.

The Rejuvenator is a mobile enclosure that works like a pressure chamber to improve your quality of life by:

• relieving weather-related pain
• relieving other aches & pains
• improving general health & wellness

The Rejuvenator works by using a fan to safely increase the barometric pressure inside the enclosure. The increase in pressure is about 5% more than surrounding conditions, similar to the barometric pressure found at the Dead Sea.

What is weather-related pain?

Some people are sensitive to changes in barometric pressure, although there is no certainty as to why. When the barometric pressure is low, many people can “feel” the change in the weather in their joints, while others feel sluggish, run down, and achy all over.

Artificial pressure elevation has been around for decades and has been used to treat divers for the bends, climbers with mountain sickness, and promote wound healing.

The recommended regimen consists of a minimum of two 30-minute Rejuvenator sessions every day, separated by at least six hours. It is important to note that if the regimen is not followed, you may not achieve the relief that you are seeking.

If you’ve been going through DOMS or having some persistent injuries, give the Rejuvenator a try.
