USING COLD THERAPY TO TREAT INJURIES AND RELIEVE PAIN
WHOLE BODY CRYO TREATMENT
Cryotherapy is also used for whole-body treatment because of its therapeutic effects. It involves immersing the body in freezing temperatures like 110 to 140 degrees under trained supervision. A full body cryo freeze is done in a specially designed cryo-chamber. The whole body cryotherapy treatments lasts for only two to four minutes. The head remains outside of the chamber and at room temperature.
Whole-body cryotherapy slows down your body’s metabolic rate and helps with pain management. It stimulates the body’s healing process and helps with recovery and tissue regeneration. It has become an effective treatment for athletes to recover after strenuous workouts or sports events in a cryo chamber recovery room to help with the aches, bruises and soreness. An ice chamber is also beneficial for people experiencing consistent pain from old injuries, arthritis, osteoporosis, phantom and chronic pain and muscle inflammation.
It may take up a few treatments to enjoy the health benefits of whole-body cryotherapy, so regular sessions are advised. Our cryotherapy chamber cost and treatment details can be found below. We’re sure you’ll love our cryo sauna.
CRYOTHERAPY FOR PAIN RELIEF
The freezing temperatures used in cryotherapy help with swelling and inflammation. The cold soothes the nerves of the painful area, bringing down swelling. The body releases endorphins, which gives it energy and boosts healing. You can immediately feel the cooling effects giving you relief from pain and making movement easier. After a couple of treatments, you can feel your body starts responding to the healing and the therapy.
CRYOTHERAPY FOR STRESS, ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Step into a cryo chamber and experience the feeling of euphoria as endorphins are released, reducing the amount of cortisol in the body (the stress hormone).
CRYOTHERAPY FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Cryotherapy for fat loss helps in losing fat from targeted areas of the body. Nitrous oxide is cooled to 160 degrees and applied to the body area. The cryo clinicians then gently massage the area to encourage lymphatic drainage. The body responds to the cold by rupturing the fat cells when the body cells thaw. They are then naturally removed by your body’s system.
Cryo for fat loss and body sculpting also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and gives your body a more contoured look. It results in a more defined body shape and definition because of the fat reduction in that area. You can also use cryo fat loss therapy for targeted fat reduction to tone areas that aren’t responding to exercise and diets. It doesn’t require surgery and tones the area along with fat loss.
THERAPY FOR SPORTS/GYM INJURIES AND RECOVERY
Using ice packs for swelling and pain relief has always been a go-to remedy for sports injuries like muscle and damaged tissue. It is a basic version of doing cryotherapy at home. Cryogenic sports therapy takes it up by another level by delivering cold treatments to reduce swelling, pain and soreness to speed up the healing process. Combined with physiotherapy and strengthening exercises, it has become an effective treatment to help heal and recover from sports injuries and boost athletic performance.
The ensuing relief from pain and inflammation also decreases an athlete’s energy and stamina, boosting blood circulation to accelerate muscle recovery. These benefits aid in training and allow for better rest and sleep that is crucial in sports competitions.
OTHER BENEFITS OF WHOLE BODY CRYOTHERAPY
WBC may also have positive outcomes for some autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and whole body conditions such as ME and fibromyalgia. There is also evidence to suggest it may help slow down the onset of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s.
