Whole Body Cryotherapy was once only available to elite athletes, but is now attainable for anyone looking to reap its amazing benefits. This revolutionary approach with amazing benefits is sweeping the nation providing enhanced performance, full body rejuvenation, and overall wellness.
Cryotherapy involves standing in a special enclosed chamber for approximately 3 minutes while cold air, below -200 degrees Fahrenheit, circulates around your body. Cryotherapy is a natural way to achieve many health benefits without invasive procedures or the use of pharmaceuticals. It stimulates the body’s circulation, metabolism, and innate healing powers.
The sub-zero temperatures make your blood circulation soar, boosting oxygen and nutrients around the body, speeding up removal of toxins, and even toning your muscles. The oxygen and nutrient-rich blood flow can improve the immune system and organ function, while also reducing inflammation.
Although standing in a chamber filled with extremely cold air may seem like an unconventional path to overall wellness and health, the amazing benefits of Cryotherapy have become increasing clear for simply one reason…IT WORKS!
Benefits of Cryotherapy?
Pain Management – Cryotherapy provides anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, which greatly decrease pain and stiffness of joints caused by conditions such as arthritis. The body’s response to the extreme temperature is to increase endorphins. Endorphins inhibit the transmission of pain signals and create a feeling of euphoria. This provides an effective, natural, and noninvasive way to manage pain. During Cryotherapy, blood vessels are constricted and this decreases inflammation and the body’s perception of pain. With less pain and stiffness, range of motion and movement are increased.
Metabolic Boost & Calorie Burn – The rapidly dropping temperature in the Cryotherapy chamber causes the body to increase its metabolic rate to raise its temperature. This typically lasts for 4-6 hours after the session, which leads to increased calorie burning (500 - 800 calories on average). After several sessions, the metabolism tends to stay higher for much longer between sessions.
Immune System – Cryotherapy stimulates the immune system and starts the regeneration processes within the body. Immunity is greater due to increased hemoglobin levels in the blood and toxins being removed. When paired with a healthy lifestyle, Cryotherapy can help decrease the instances of colds and other illnesses as well as aid in the treatment of headaches and migraines.
Athletic Performance and Muscle Recovery – Whole body Cryotherapy stimulates the adrenal glands which increase energy levels and adrenaline. When used before an athletic event or work out, it can help increase reaction time and endurance levels. When used as a post-workout therapy, it can help reduce recovery time. Athletes who use Cryotherapy after training sessions recover from soreness and stiffness faster than those who only use ice or stretching.
Beauty & Anti-Aging – The extreme cold during Cryotherapy leads to collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. This creates greater skin elasticity, a more youthful appearance, and tighter and firmer skin. It can also help reduce cellulite and lead to smoother, more even-toned skin. Cryotherapy provides anti-inflammatory properties that can also be helpful against conditions like dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne.
Mood Enhancement – Cryotherapy's extreme temperatures causes the body to ignite a “fight or flight” response which releases endorphins. Endorphins are a natural painkiller. It also implements a sense of euphoria. This therapy has been studied as a way to successfully treat mood disorders and medication-resistant depression.
