How Does Cryotherapy Work?

Whole Body Cryotherapy is the body’s exposure to extreme cold. Extreme cold activates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. As a result, the body increases its metabolic rate in order to produce more heat and protect the core.

Cold sensations in the skin send a signal to the brain which causes blood to rush to the core. As blood is circulated through the core, toxins are flushed and blood becomes enriched with oxygen and all the necessary enzymes and nutrients.

When the cryotherapy session ends, the oxygenated nutrient and enzyme enriched blood rushes back though the body accelerating the natural recovery process. The metabolic rate and production of collagen is accelerated, while more endorphins are released.

FAQ's

How Does Cryotherapy Work?
The Cryo Cabin uses nitrogen to lower the temperature of the surface skin to below -30 degrees for 2-3 minutes. When the skin is chilled to that temperature a signal is sent to the brain sending all the blood to the body’s core. During this process, the blood is infused with more oxygen than regularly occurs. The deep freeze and subsequent return to regular temperatures give the immune system an energy boost, increases, endorphin saturation in the blood, blocks pain receptors and encourages the body’s natural regeneration process.

Is Nitrogen Dangerous for Humans?
No, the nitrogen involved in Cryotherapy is NOT dangerous for people. Nitrogen is a non-toxic, natural gas that occurs naturally in the air we breathe.

How Will I Be Able to Tolerate Those Extreme Temperatures?
The Cryotherapy treatments are so quick they are over before you know it. Also, the air generated during Cryotherapy is very dry so there is no build up of cold moisture on the skin. A lot of patients don’t even shiver during the treatment. Cryotherapy never freezes the skin or tissue, just chills it to a temperature where the regeneration process is triggered.

How Often Should I Book a Cryotherapy Session?
For the best results 2-3 times a week is optimal. This can be increased for athletes during rigorous training.

Can I Get A Cryotherapy Treatment Before or After Working Out?
Absolutely. In fact, it is recommended. Patients can either opt for a whole body Cryotherapy treatment after a workout which reduces inflammation and speeds up the recovery process. Patients can also choose to do a whole body Cryotherapy session before a workout to enhance energy, and increase the range of motion and flexibility.
