PERFORMANCE & RECOVERY
Exceptional effects of healing have been observed in the sports traumatology area. Systematic cryotherapy has become an optional method in healing the sports traumas, and is also applied as a method of biological regeneration. Additionally, pre-cooling (using cryotherapy chambers prior to physical exertion) has been proven to improve peak levels of performance and reduce post workout lactate levels by as much as 28 percent.
Whole Body Cryotherapy causes inhibition of inflammation which results in a reduction of pain and swelling. This reduction in pain and swelling improves joint function which enables therapists to progress treatment quicker and results in an overall sooner return to play.
IMPROVEMENT OF DISEASE PROCESSES & REHABILITATION
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of cryotherapy can drastically improve joint disorders such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. It also helps reduce itching and inflammation in serious skin conditions such as Psoriasis and Eczema. Patients frequently report dramatic natural energy boost and fatigue relief for hours and increased libido.
RECOVERY FROM INTENSE EXERCISE
Whole Body Cryotherapy helps the body recover after intense exercise by flushing out the muscles and delivering oxygen and nutrients to the muscles. It can also be used as part of a training program to enhance sporting performance. Whole Body Cryotherapy increases muscular resistance to fatigue and also enable the muscles capacity to regenerate. This results in an overall increase in muscular performance.
ENERGY, MOOD & IMPROVEMENT OF DEPRESSION
When you undergo a session of Cryotherapy, circulation improves, which causes an increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients around the body. The brain releases natural “feel good” endorphins to help cope with the extreme cold temperatures. These same endorphins increase energy levels and leave you with a euphoric feeling for reported up to 8 hours by clients following a session.
Exposure to extreme cold during Cryotherapy tricks the body into thinking it’s going into hypothermia, causing it to boost its metabolic rate in order to maintain and increase heat production.
ANTI-AGING & SKIN REJUVENATION
Whole Body Cryotherapy improves the general condition of the skin by increasing oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin. Frequent Whole-Body Cryotherapy tightens the skin and prevents wrinkles. During Cryotherapy treatment, the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session
THE HISTORY OF CRYOTHERAPY
It may seem like something straight out of a science fiction movie, but cryotherapy was originally pioneered in 1978 by Dr. Yamaguchi of Japan, who started using extremely cold temperatures to treat his patients who were suffering from rheumatic diseases. He noticed that the treatment was extremely successful not just for rheumatic diseases but for a number of other conditions as well. He found that cooling the surface of the skin significantly reduced the soreness and pain his patients were experiencing in their joints. Drawing on this successful method of treatment, Dr. Yamaguchi and his team came to the conclusion that using a cryosauna to rapidly cool the skin surface was much more effective than immersing a patient in an ice bath. This research led to the advancements in whole body cryotherapy which we now have today.
Over the past four decades numerous studies have confirmed the benefits of whole body cryotherapy. Cryotherapy has become the go-to method for recovery from sports injuries, chronic pain, and inflammation. And it’s not only for pain; it’s a holistic approach to health and wellness with numerous other positive effects on the body including weight loss, collagen production in the skin, an increase in energy, and boosting the metabolism.
