What is Cryotherapy?
A Cylindrical Chamber that fills with nitrogen vapor to -220 degrees F. Treatment lasts 1-3 minutes
Why Try Cryotherapy?
It's fast, more comfortable than an ice bath, and super beneficial! You've been told many times to ice an injury or swollen area as ice relieves discomfort by constricting the blood flow to an injured area to reduce swelling and inflammation. While an ice bath is beneficial, to achieve the desired outcome, you have to sit in it for 20 minutes resulting in extreme discomfort. With Whole Body Cryotherapy, the air circulating is colder than an ice bath, but DRY, so it’s not nearly as excruciating as cold water.
How Does Cryotherapy Work?
Your skin surface drops to approx. 30 degrees F, causing your body to send signals to the brain to draw blood to your internal organs for protection. While the blood is in your core, it picks up oxygen and nutrients which stimulate your body’s natural healing process. As soon as treatment ends, your brain decides where it should send the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood first.
Decreased soreness and pain from physical activity
Fatigued muscles receive oxygen-rich blood for immediate recovery effects
Decreased swelling and systemic inflammation
Increased range of motion
Improved mood due to increased endorphins
Mitigates anxiety and depression
Strengthened immune system
Improved skin, reduced cellulite, reduced signs of aging
Relief from joint disorders, arthritis, rheumatoid diseases, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, chronic back pain
