Vasper, which stands for Vascular Performance was created by scientific visionary Peter Wasowski. By combining a unique and precise compression technology, body temperature cooling and grounding, Vasper is able to precipitate extraordinary physiological results. The list of athletes and organizations who have implemented Vasper is impressive and includes: NASA, The San Jose Sharks, The Texas Rangers, UCSF, EXOS, APEX, United States Special Operations Command, The Naval Special Warfare Development Group, The 3rd Special Forces Group, Neurological Surgery Inc. founder Concussion Expert Robert C. Cantu MD, and US Olympic athletes and Santa Cruz CORE Fitness and Rehab.
In an interview with Wired Magazine, Wasowski explained: “Watch a child and you do not see them walk — they move quickly, they play and expend a tremendous amount of energy,” says Wasowski. “If you were to look inside their muscles you would see high concentrations of lactic acid, and the higher the concentration, the stronger the feedback to the brain requesting growth hormones and other anabolic hormones, such as DHEA, IGF1 and testosterone, which rebuild damaged tissues.”(1)
As we age our natural anabolic hormones begin to decline. By using the compression and cooling technology together with grounding, Vasper is able to create a physiological response in adults equal to high intensity exercise without the wear and tear associated. The net result is that Vasper stimulates the brain to release large amounts of endogenous hormones to hormones that rejuvenate, rebuild and heal. This downstream anabolic effect can have different effects in different people, some feel highly energized and ready to exercise, while others feel the need to sleep. We have found that clients who are in debt to their body tend to respond with sleepiness while clients who have taken good care of themselves are the ones who feel an energy surge.
Here at Santa Cruz CORE, clients and staff have experienced and reported greater levels of energy, accelerated recovery, improved sleep, reduction of symptoms of PTSD, increase in muscle mass, decrease in bodyfat, helping with jet lag, better workouts, reduced chronic pain, and reduced joint pain. Vasper savvy athletes use it before a workout or an athletic event to boost performance, and then again afterwards to accelerate recovery.
The first three sessions of Vasper are free of any charge or obligation at Santa Cruz CORE. Come check it out, if you like it then you can look at options for continuing. If you don’t like it then no worries.
