thriveMD Introduces Cutting-Edge Technology

This month, thriveMD, located in Schaumburg, is introducing two new services: Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UVB) therapy and the HOCATT™ Plus Sauna system. Both are cutting-edge modalities that offer great health benefits. 

        Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UVB) therapy, a photo-oxidation treatment, consists of briefly exposing a sample of the blood to ultraviolet light. The most dramatic effect is the stimulation of the immune system and specific enzyme systems. Additional benefits include deactivation of toxins, increase in the oxygen-combining power of the blood and oxygen transportation to organs, activation of white blood cells and anti-inflammatory effects.

        The HOCATT Plus Sauna system is a single unit developed for strategic wellness and healing. Using a combination of 10 advanced therapies in one 30-minute session, the HOCATT Plus detoxes the body, improves circulation, boosts energy and strengthens the immune system. Patients receive treatment for common symptoms of illness, anti-aging, weight loss, detoxification, pain management and athletic improvement. Because of the way the technology supports the immune system, cancer patients receiving HOCATT Plus treatments experience fewer side effects while undergoing chemo and radiation therapies. thriveMD has one of only three HOCATT Plus machines in the country.

Natural Awakenings readers receive 15 percent off single sessions and already discounted 10-session packages during the month of August. Location: 1355 Remington Rd., Ste. I, Schaumburg. For appointments, call 312-600-5070 or email For more information, visit
