The Top 7 Longevity Devices of the Rich & Famous

If you are rich and want to live longer, these are the top machines available in the world today you can buy for your home spa.

Home Luxury Spa

This article is for two types of people, those who take their longevity seriously, as they understand its powerful effects on their daily lives in terms of their energy and performance.

Secondly, those who can afford to put their money, where their mouth is.

As you are reading this, I assume that you meet both those criteria, and if not now, certainly in the future.

I have had my own personal longevity spa at home for a long time now. More importantly, I regularly use all these devices, not just being a pretty ornament for other people’s amusement when they visit me, though one close friend calls me “Chamber Boy,” as he finds it highly amusing my obsession; with chamber-like contraptions!

I once read a great article whereby an unwell person asked his doctor not what “he recommended” to heal him however, what “he would do himself personally.”

This radiated with me, as I found it such powerful wisdom when seeking advice from others. 

So in line with this theme and great piece of wisdom, before I explain what you should consider investing in concerning your and your family’s health and longevity at home. I will outline what I have or have had at some time at home in my “longevity spa.”

Some of my devices also focus on aesthetics, not just longevity, as I believe in both feeling amazing and looking amazing. I have had the following at home over the last decade:

  1. Cryotherapy Chamber.
  2. Localised Cryotherapy Device.
  3. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Chamber (HBOT).
  4. Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy (IHT) machine.
  5. Oxygen Facial Device.
  6. Skin Repair Pen (micro-needling).
  7. Fat Freezing Machine.
  8. Red Light or LED Phototherapy device.
  9. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound machine.
  10. HIFEM Accelerated Muscle Stimulation machine.

I’m now personally out of space with all the above devices, so to add anything further is just not possible or would require moving to a bigger property. This strongly goes against my current focus, which is very much on downsizing and minimising “stuff”, so though slightly torn here, it’s a strict one in, one out policy at my house!

In this article, I will cover what, in my opinion, are the best devices to have in a home longevity spa or super high-end hotel i.e., 5 stars plus. Now I appreciate in time, as things develop, so will my opinion, and due to this, I will come back and update this guide as technology and my awareness change.

The Top 7 Longevity Devices for Your Home Spa

  1. Cryotherapy chamber.
  2. HBOT Chamber.
  3. Sauna – Ozone, Infrared & Finnish.
  4. Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy (IHT).
  5. Red Light Therapy.
  6. HIFEM Muscle Stimulation.
  7. Float Tank.
  8. (A bed – Samina Sleep).

I will give you an overview of each device, then for those devices that take your fancy, I have written separate guides, going into a lot more detail on each of the above 8 devices that can be accessed here.

A Cryotherapy Chamber

Cryotherapy, which literally means “cold therapy,” is a technique where the body is exposed to extremely cold temperatures, ranging from -85°C to -180°C, with the most effective temperatures being around -110°C to -130°C. 

The treatment takes as little as 2 to 3 minutes, yet the effect on the body is most spectacular. 

Extreme cold therapy provides a stimulus that activates physiological processes in your entire body.

Cryotherapy is effectively like a system reboot of your body, as the body scans itself for underperforming bodily functions and repairs itself rapidly.

Advocates for cryotherapy cite a variety of health benefits that include:

  • Improving chronic pain.
  • Reduction in inflammation.
  • General wellbeing.
  • Help with depression.
  • Improved sleep.
  • Faster healing from sports injuries.
  • Increased intensity of training for sports stars.

Also, a cryotherapy treatment after an operation is quite common, as it accelerates the healing process and improves any pain without high levels of medication and the accompanying side effects!

Another popular cryotherapy chamber user is professional athletes, who use cryotherapy to recover faster and perform at higher levels.

Though not its most in-demand use, it is also great for looking younger, as it improves the skin’s tone skin’s texture and tightens the skin. For the body, the extremely low temperatures can help you lose weight while simultaneously good for reducing cellulite.

Prices start from £25,000/$30,000.

HBOT Chamber

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process by delivering oxygen under pressure, increasing the oxygen content in the blood, and flooding the tissues with oxygen.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works on 4 main levels. Hyperoxygenation increases the oxygen dissolved in your body. 

Neovascularisation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy stimulates your blood vessel formation and your collagen formation.

Hyperoxia enhanced antimicrobial activity, hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces and/or eliminates the effects of toxic substances, bacteria, viruses, and yeast in your body by increasing the tissue oxygen levels in your body.

Then finally, hyperoxia enhanced immune response, hyperbaric oxygen therapy activates your white blood cells to help fight infections, promoting your resistance to infection, as well as wound healing. While also helps to reduce any inflammation and oxidative stress you may have.

As many severe diseases and conditions come about from a lack of oxygen, we are now simply removing the source of the problem by reintroducing high levels of oxygen to the body.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can treat a huge variety of conditions, such as:

  • Multiple sclerosis.
  • Cerebral palsy.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Strokes.
  • ME. 
  • Motor neuron disease.
  • Autism.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Increased wound and fracture healing.
  • Increased energy.
  • Improvement in sleep.
  • Improvement in skin conditions.

You will find the experience very similar to flying. You are in the hyperbaric chamber for just over an hour. A course of 30 to begin with, then on-going a few sessions a week, is an excellent protocol for anyone with the above issues and those wanting to live longer and be healthier. 

The great thing about this treatment is that you can simply sit or lie there and read, bring your laptop, iPad, or mobile in, and use the time to relax, work, watch films, or surf the internet.

Prices start from £10,000/$15,000.

Sauna – Ozone, Steam, Infrared & Finnish

The four main types of sauna, of which at least one or two of these you will be aware of, are ozone, steam, infrared and your classic sauna, the Finnish sauna.

Heat therapy for longevity is a key component, just as cold therapy is. Often, even better results are achieved when combined, back to back. Yes, brutal I know. However, if it was this easy, everyone would look amazing and live forever!

The most obscure out of the four, being the ozone sauna. Ozone, which we have all heard of, is simply a molecule with three oxygen atoms. So instead of oxygen that’s O2, or two oxygen atoms its O3

It is less stable than oxygen and is often used for sterilization processes, which is why ozone therapy lends itself so well to help you feel better and live longer. Its these powerful oxidizing properties that can eliminate bacteria, toxins and viruses, that make it so beneficial to you. 

An ozone sauna is typically a capsule that you sit in, with a hole to stick your head out is the best way to describe it as opposed to a typical type of sauna where you go into a small room.

An ozone sauna will infuse steam with ozone, then use the steam as the medium to deliver the ozone to your body. Think steam room, just without steam exposure to your head. The steam will dilate your blood vessels, sending blood to the surface of the skin to cool the body. It is then absorbed via the pores in your skin, in turn being transported to your bloodstream and your lymphatic system.

Due to the huge overlaps of an ozone sauna and a steam room, an ozone sauna renders a steam room obsolete for your home longevity spa. Unless you want it to be more about socialising and getting friends and your family together to do something healthy, then each individual’s longevity needs.

Infrared saunas suddenly, in the last few years, have exploded. These have a very low entry price people are often shocked at how cheap they are and can easily afford one.

So though very affordable, I have concerns over the materials used in their construction, from the quality of the wood to the glues used. Finally, the levels of EMF (electrical magnetic field) radiation some can generate.

Then finally, we have the classic sauna that we all are aware of, with these being installed in almost every spa, gym, and health club in the world! For this reason, I won’t dive deep into these, as everyone who will be reading this article would have experienced this and know whether this is right for them.

Unfortunately, no large scale studies comparing traditional saunas to infrared saunas have been conducted, so I would suggest having 10 sessions yourself in both types of the sauna before deciding which way to invest due to all the conflicting information.

I personally prefer the more instant feeling of heat and sweating over that of an infrared sauna, where it takes about 20 minutes to start sweating. Plus, you need to be in there for around 45 minutes, which is too long for me, as it is not somewhere I can read or watch training courses due to the sweat generated.

Overall, saunas offer a surprisingly wide range of different types, that’s even before you look into the individual brands.

Me personally, if I could only have one, I would go for the ozone sauna. However, if I had a family and wanted to make this a fun, inclusive family activity, I would be going for a 4 seater classic sauna with a plunge pool next to it in the garden!

Prices start from £2,500/$3,000.

Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy (IHT)

 In a nutshell, a way to reduce inflammation in your body while also improving your energy levels. Simply by training your body to breathe more efficiently and effectively, which allows you to absorb higher levels of oxygen.

It’s a form of breathing, reduced oxygen levels, hence the hypoxia aspect, though very much at controlled levels, which is the key aspect, being optimised for you as an individual. Not to be confused with the generic one size fits all, hypoxia training, as only around 20% of people get benefits from this generalized hypoxia training.

How it works, you sit down for 40 – 50 minutes with a mask over your face and breathe.

You work through a program, so you do this for 15 sessions over a three-week period. Then on-going, you would look to have booster sessions of around five sessions every 6 to 8 weeks.

Intermittent hypoxia therapy or IHT, will help you with:

  • Reducing your inflammation levels (the world’s most popular way to become ill).
  • Improve aches and pains.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Boost your energy levels.
  • Improve your sleep.
  • Speed up your rate of healing.

Like with cryotherapy chambers, positive side effects include skin improvement and becoming more youthful with more sessions. This is done from the inside out with intermittent hypoxia therapy, instead of outside in, with typical aesthetic devices.

This requires more investment of your time to get the benefits of intermittent hypoxia therapy. Like with all longevity devices, this is not a one-hit wonder and requires ongoing investment in your body and longevity. 

Prices start from £25,000/$30,000.

Red Light Therapy

Just as we humans need food to live healthy lives, the same is required from light for long healthy lives.

Red and near-infrared light therapy are one of the most scientifically studied therapies globally! With over ten thousand research papers published over the last few decades.

Ever wondered why the old and retired move to sunny places?

Getting the healing powers of natural light into our cells creates a positive effect on our human biological processes. Red light and near infra-red light are the most powerful and beneficial to the human body.

Red and near-infrared light therapy can help you:

  • Increases your energy levels.
  • Improve your mood and brain function.
  • Make you look younger by regenerating your skin, fewer wrinkles/and reduction of cellulite.
  • Improve your hormonal health.
  • Increase your metabolism to experience faster fat loss.
  • Boost your healing and recover quicker from injury.
  • Improve your athletic performance.

Humans have been aware of the powerful healing properties of light for thousands of years, with numerous references in historical texts referring to light and its healing properties. Some even go back to 1400BC, in ancient scriptures, plus more “recent” books in the 1700s.

As we spend more time indoors under artificial light, instead of being outdoors with natural sunlight, we miss out on both the intensity of light and all the different spectrums of light.

These include UV to boost our vitamin D levels, blue light to wake us up properly, and red light and infrared light to give us high energy levels.

The best way to benefit from red light and NIR light is using large light panels or sunbed style (ironic, I know) devices. You only need to do this for around 10-20 minutes a few times weekly to reap the huge benefits.

Prices start from £2,500/$3,000.

HIFEM Muscle Stimulation

This allows you to do 36,000 sit-ups in 30 mins, with no sweating!

I perhaps need to say that again, as I was blown away the first time I discovered this! You can get what would take 360 abs sessions (assuming 100 crunches each session) done in just 30 minutes. So if you are doing abs three times a week, this equals 120 weeks or 2 ½ years!

After my initial shock, my second thoughts were, when can I get one! And get one I did…

The High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) Muscle Stimulation workout is a non-invasive treatment of between 20-30 minutes that creates a considerable number of powerful muscle contractions, physically not possible through voluntary contractions.

HIFEM Muscles Stimulation fully activates your muscles in a way that exercise alone can’t even get close to, which is how it achieves such an effective toning result in such a short time.

It really is what you and me, plus everyone else, have always wanted! A way to build muscle while simultaneously burning fat without enduring months in the gym. I personally use it for my abs and occasionally quads, having seen great results.

Other areas it works on include the glutes for bum lifts (which saves risky Brazilian Bum Lift surgery!), calves, hamstrings, and arms.

In my opinion, this is a longevity device and not an aesthetic device, though very much both! Are that muscle and strength become very important for longevity in your 5th decade (over 40s) and onwards…

Prices start from £15,000/$20,000.

 

Float Tank

I almost bought one of these for home and am very glad I didn’t. Yes, this is a strange way to introduce one of my top longevity devices I appreciate!

However, I also want to be realistic. These are great longevity devices if you have staff to manage. Aside from gardeners and cleaners, I’ve not had full-time house staff.

Before discussing why you should be going into this eye wide open, let’s discuss what it is first and the benefits of owning one of these at home.

They are often also called sensory deprivation tanks, as you both float, experiencing zero gravity, and are deprived of sensations i.e. no light or sound, hence their benefits!

Think of a big bath with a lid over it, then add an extreme amount of Epsom salts. It’s these Epsom salts that allow you to become weightless and float, just like the Red Sea. 

Some float tanks will have soothing music playing, though this is optional and technically stops your float tank from being a sensory deprived experience, ironically!

Epsom salts have been used for centuries due to their well-documented healing properties. Your skin will certainly feel divine after an hour-long session for the rest of the day, especially when you get into bed.

The benefits of using a floatation tank include:

  • Stress reduction.
  • Increased relaxation levels.
  • Improved circulation.
  • Boost your creativity due to the activation of your theta brainwaves. 

Due to the high levels of corrosive Epsom salts used, you need to ensure thorough maintenance. Otherwise, expect lots of time when your floatation tank is out of use while waiting for repair. This is not a plug-and-play, like a lot of the longevity devices discussed above.

If you have the time or resources to maintain them well, these are a great longevity device that will thoroughly relax you while boosting great ideas and creativity.

Prices start from £15,000/$20,000.

Your Bed

Hang on Ralph, a bed, we all got those, that is nothing new, surely?

Well, it didn’t even start out on the list initially, hence top 7 longevity devices and not top 8! However, it was only when I started writing these guides to each of the top home longevity devices that it dawned on me that we need to think of the bed not as a piece of furniture but as a longevity device.

And not just any old longevity device. The most important longevity device you can ever buy. So without further ado, let me explain why this might be the most crucial longevity device you have ever purchased.

When it comes to your bed, there are so many factors to consider however, here, I will break down the essential aspects into one simple place for you to understand and know what to look for to make your bed the best longevity device in the world.

The key issue with modern bedding is that the materials used to make your bed are often toxic to humans. Ventilation is non-existent, causing you to overheat and lie in your sweat. Finally, they lack the correct support your body needs for a great night’s sleep.

The three areas of concern when it comes to what your bed is made of are:

  • The bedframe.
  • The mattress.
  • Any metals used.

Then we want a bed and mattress that allows our skin to breathe at night, allowing the sweat to naturally evaporate instead of soaking into the sheets.

The fabric choice of your bedding is key to ventilation. Natural fibres win over synthetic polyesters etc. Next, your bed needs to have great under-bed ventilation i.e. fresh air can flow underneath your mattress/bed, which helps cool you from underneath.

Then finally, when you sleep, you want your back supported in all the right places to maintain the spine’s natural shape.

You want the natural S-shaped curvature of your spine supported and even distribution of pressure. As I found out, when sleeping on the floor for two weeks as an experiment, though very supportive, I could feel a lot of pressure around my hips/lower back area.

Another heavy area of our bodies that impacts pressure and your muscles is your shoulders. This causes us to lose the natural shape of our spine in a lot of mattresses. Of course, our muscles then overcompensate to alleviate this and maintain balance, however, this is what creates your back pain and tension.

Prices start from £5,000/$8,000.

Your Next Steps…

A lot of these devices will have some overlaps and quite frankly, having the time to use all 7 devices is not possible. I know this from firsthand experience with all the devices I have at home. 

So which of these is best for you? Well, it all depends on what you want to achieve and how much time you have to invest in your longevity?

Once you know the answer to those two questions, you can assess each device on its merits for what’s best for you and your family.

I use a particular formula:

Best longevity device = result x time x likeability.

Likeability may initially confuse you. However, some longevity devices will just flow and resonate better with certain personalities than others. 

This is why I believe it’s best to have tried each device out before investing to see whether this is something you would be happy to use a few times a week before investing your time, energy, and money.

Frequency of use is key here, as these are not one-hit wonders and will require you to use regularly, a few times a week.

Key Takeaways for Home Longevity Devices

To summarise this article, below are a few questions to ask yourself before investing in these great devices for your home spa:

  1. What are you hoping to improve?
  2. How much time are you willing to invest in each device, 3 to 6 days a week?
  3. How much space do you have?
  4. What is your total budget?

All of the above will bring you enormous benefits as they have for me personally. For those highly motivated to feel amazing every day you wake and live to well over 100, I would seriously consider getting them all.
