Sports doctors have used cryotherapy as a powerful anti-inflammatory tool, whole body cryotherapy is now recognized as an important restorative treatment.
Cryotherapy is when your body briefly exposed to cryogenic temperatures ranging from - 184 F to - 256 F for 2 to 3 minutes per session . Extreme cold can stimulate temperature receptors in the skin to activate the nervous, immune and endocrine systems, resulting in reduction of pain and inflammation, and improvement in mood, improvements to physique, and the overall health of the body generally enhancing your overall health, wellness, and being.
A trained therapist guides you into one of our exclusive cryosaunas (open-topped cryotherapy device). Many compare the sensation to standing in front of an open freezer on a hot day – chilly but tolerable, if not refreshing, and far less jarring than an ice bath because, although the air is extremely cold, it is dry.
After the treatment, engaging in moderate cardiovascular exercise stimulates blood flow and enhances the treatment.
Over the next 48 hours, the process of restoration occurs and the body returns to a former and better state or condition with reduced pain and inflammation, and increased energy levels. Recovery times from strenuous workouts and injury are improved and shortened.
