What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy has been used since the 1970’s, it’s initial design and use was to help Rheumatoid Arthritis. Since then therapy became widely used for a variety of applications including reducing pain and inflammation, improved sports performance and beauty. Whole body cryotherapy is an amazing and natural way to achieve health benefits simply through the exposure of cold temperatures.
Cryotherapy is a form of cold therapy where the client stands in a cryosauna that fills with nitrogen vapor to drop that ambient temperature down to 130° to -180°F. This temporary dry cold penetrates only the outer layer of the skin and cues the body’s bio-response to the extreme cold that promotes the natural healing process.
Studies have shown that exposing the body to these sub-zero temperatures can help reduce inflammation, relieve muscle soreness, improve energy, boost endorphins, improve collagen production and burn over 500 calories.
What happens when you go in for a cryotherapy session?
For your first session you will fill out a waiver and meet your Cryotherapy Technician. After that your technician will direct you to change into the fluffy robe, socks and cryo-booties. You will step into the cryosauna and you will trade you your robe for a warm pair of mittens and your three-minute session will begin.
Once the session begins you will feel the cold, dry nitrogen vapor surrounding you. The technician will be talking with you throughout your entire session and will be continuously monitoring how you are feeling. After three minutes of therapy and conversation your session is over. Cryotherapy is a dry, surface cold so you warm up almost instantly following the session.
Since the body responds to cold temperatures by releasing endorphins people report a noticeable improvement in their overall mood and energy levels in addition to a fresh stretched feeling. Often times chronic pain sufferers find an immediate relief of pain due to the decreased inflammation.
Whether you are that suffers from chronic pain due to inflammation, an athlete or simply seeking improved general health cryotherapy can be extremely beneficial for you.
