THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF CRYOTHERAPY
SPORTS & RECOVERY
Cryotherapy reduces sensitivity of the muscle spindles and relieves pain. Muscle cooling has been found to reduce nerve conduction. This has been proven to relieve DOMS and fatigue after intense physical activity.
BEAUTY & AESTHETICS
By applying hyper-cool temperatures to the skin’s surface, whole-body cryotherapy “jumpstarts” the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes. This includes increased circulation, which provides a youthful complexion, and stimulation of collagen production, which is the foundation of firm, healthy skin.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Cryotherapy induces a short duration temperature stress to the body. The hormones released during stress — cortisol, adrenaline, and dopamine — increase the ability to withstand pain, fatigue, and hunger.
Cryotherapy increases pain thresholds and thereby reduces pain. It can be used in both acute and chronic pain management.
BENEFITS OF WHOLE-BODY CRYOTHERAPY
Whole-body cryotherapy (from Greek kryos – cold and therapy) is a technique that involves short exposures to air temperatures below −100°
EDGE FOR ATHLETES
Whole-body cryotherapy has become a powerful training and recovery tool both for professional athletes and for amateurs. Before training it helps to boost performance. After intense workouts cryotherapy sessions help to recover better relieving fatigue and delayed onset muscle soreness. In addition, whole-body cryotherapy is used to heal athletic injuries due to its ability to suppress pain for several hours, as well as relieve edema and restraint.
WELLNESS AND BEAUTY
Cryotherapy makes all systems of the body work to their fullest potential. Short-time (1 to 3 minutes) cooling of the upper skin layer in a cryosauna, no more than 0.5 mm deep, helps to boost metabolic processes, decrease anxiety and fatigue, improve sleep, and stimulate immune system.
Cold air feels more comfortable than cold water or ice baths, because at super low temperatures the air contains no moisture. As a bonus the cold triggers the production of endorphins, called “feel-good hormones”, which make you feel euphoric.
Super-low temperatures are cutting-edge and efficient way to trigger self-healing mechanisms. Cryotherapy activates natural body defences and that is why it is totally safe. Besides, due to short time exposure the body core temperature remains unchanged and the skin temperature does not drop below 5°. Whole-body cryotherapy provides powerful anti-inflammatory response and pain relief.
