Hugs and Kisses Dog Grooming is excited to now be offering the Nagayu CO2 Bathing System, a skin therapy treatment for pets! Originally from Japan this system is designed to help dogs with skin problems such as skin irritation, hot spots, yeast build up, flea and tick bites, warts, odour, dandruff and dry skin! The Nagayu CO2 Bathing System also helps and encourages hair growth and leaves the coat and skin noticeably cleaner and healthier.
The Nagayu CO2 Bathing System is designed around a shower head that fits a CO2 tablet inside. The shower head provides a hydrating massage whilst dissolving the CO2 tablet in the final rinse. This very gentle process feels like a spa and takes approximately three minutes.
The compressed CO2 tablet consists of carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and bicarbonate. The system adds ions into the rinse following the shampoo, which has been an effective medical treatment for humans for years. This method originated in a small village named “Nagayu” located in southern Japan where carbon dioxide naturally occurs in hot springs.
The Nagayu CO2 Bathing System is only recently available in Australia but groomers who have been using this system in the United States have been achieving amazing results. Results can be seen after one treatment, but dogs with long term skin issues will need follow up baths for the treatment to work. The skin needs time to recuperate if the problem has been present for some time.
A Nagayu Skin Therapy Treatment can be included in a normal grooming session. Treatment for specific or ongoing problems can occur during just a bath if no grooming is required. While the Nagayu Skin Therapy Treatment will not cure skin problems, it will help alleviate the symptoms.
