The Basic Science of Cryotherapy
Whole Body Cryotherapy works by exposing the body to extremely cold, but safe, temperatures for short periods of time. The process is actually very simple. Our hexagonal shaped chamber exposes clients to incredible healing benefits by filling the chamber with a dry Nitrogen mist that chills the skin and starts an amazing physiological process ending in extreme healing.
The physiology behind how this works mimics (but doesn’t cause) the body being in hyperthermia. The simple explanation is that when the body is that cold, it brings all of it’s blood to the core organs for survival. While in the core, organs blood is cleaned, detoxed, and filled with nutrition and oxygen. Following the 3 minute session (max), the freshly cleaned blood travels around the body bringing healing factors to the cells. You get all of these outstanding benefits, without the contraction and pain of an ice bath!
Obviously, one of the greatest benefits of cryotherapy is how quick and painless the entire treatment procedure is for patients.
The use of cold treatment dates back as early as 2500 BC when the Egyptians used it to treat injuries and inflammation.
In Europe and Asia, the practice of using cryotherapy to promote athletic recovery and enhance performance began decades ago. In fact, whole body cryotherapy was actually pioneered in Japan in the 1970’s for the purpose of helping those with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Now proven to help patients in more ways than ever, a single three-minute Impact Cryotherapy session promotes incredible natural healing for the body.
