Whole Body Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy is a cutting edge non-invasive cold therapy treatment exposing the body to subzero temperatures (down to as low as –175F) which naturally reduces inflammation by boosting the body’s own anti-inflammatory chemical, norepinephrine. Whole body cryotherapy will stimulate the repair of tissue damage caused by injuries and alleviate pain from a variety of chronic conditions.
How does Whole Body Cryotherapy work?
Whole Body Cryotherapy is a cutting-edge treatment which uses non-invasive cold therapy that briefly exposes the body to below freezing (subzero) temperatures as low as –175F. This causes the body to boost the anti-inflammatory chemical known as norepinephrine. It only takes 2 – 3 minutes of exposure at this temperature for Whole Body Cryotherapy to initiate the body’s natural “fight or flight” response. This causes an immediate release of endorphins, which can help with pain relief and an elevation in your mood. During this process blood rushes to your core where the body's organs clean and replenish the blood with proteins, nutrients and oxygen. Afterwards, the blood vessels open back up returning nutrient rich, oxygenated blood throughout the body. This promotes revitalization and healing.
Health & Wellness
Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment is beneficial to improve and maintain your overall health and wellness. The temperature of the body’s outer skin is reduced to almost 45 degrees Fahrenheit for only 2-3 minutes, causing the blood vessels to constrict and expand again. During this process, toxins are broken down and carried out by the bloodstream thereby detoxifying impurities. This releases beneficial chemicals which in turn create a cleansing effect. It's as if your bloodstream is getting a bath to refresh and rejuvenate, which reflects in your overall health and state of wellness.
Spa & Beauty
Being exposed to an intensely cold environment of close to -175F sets off a natural collagen production in the deeper skin layers which leaves the outer skin firmer and smoother. Following a series of these brief but effective treatments, clients will notice more elasticity and better tone in their skin. This creates an overall youthful appearance. Some clients also experience reduced cellulite as an added benefit.
Sports Training and Recovery
Professional athlete teams and some of the most prominent players have been using Whole Body Cryotherapy as a method to win Olympic Gold Medals and other sports championship titles. Cryotherapy has been used in sports for decades as a tool for training and to relieve pain from injuries – whether temporary or chronic. It is quickly replacing outdated modes of therapies used as sports medicine treatments due to its ability to reduce inflammation and promote modality in a natural and quickly effective way. This intense cold treatment helps accelerate restoration of ligament and muscle damage, offering the athlete less therapy time so they can return to their sports activities sooner.
Whole Body Cryotherapy
With origins in Japan dating back to 1978, this powerful method of treating pain and inflammation covers a wide range of symptoms caused by injuries and chronic conditions. In the three decades following its development, this treatment method spread across Europe and became widely accepted for its broad range of benefits in sports rehabilitation and athletic training techniques.
Since then, extensive studies spanning the past two decades have concluded Whole Body Cryotherapy to be a powerful and effective method for treating injuries and inflammatory related disorders.
Another benefit for those using this advanced treatment is the accelerated rate the body produces collagen, which is widely known to improve skin texture and elasticity as well as reverse the signs of aging by improving the overall appearance of skin, including problematic cellulite fat deposits.
Whole Body Cryotherapy can also speed up natural weight loss through its ability to boost the metabolic rate, causing the body to burn calories faster during normal activities.
Professional athletes are turning to this therapeutic method after discovering the powerful increase in their athletic performance as well as decreased injury recovery time.
