Benefits of Cryotherapy...
Cryotherapy shocks the outer layer of your skin with extreme cold temperatures. Your body responds by speeding up to literally “warm you up.” That increased speed provides a boost in your metabolism and literally “burns” up calories. In time, you return to your regular warm body temperature. This boost in metabolism lasts for around 5-8 hours.
Cryotherapy session tricks the body into thinking it’s going into hypothermia when exposed to the extreme cold, causing it to boost its metabolic rate in order to preserve and increase heat production. This causes the body to burn between 500-800 extra calories.
BOOSTS Athletic Performance and 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. Also, 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.
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. Cryotherapy increases muscular resistance to fatigue and also enable the muscles capacity to regenerate. This results in an overall increase in muscular performance.
Cryotherapy causes inhibition of inflammation which results in a reduction of pain and swelling. This reduction in pain and swelling improves joint function allowing therapists to progress treatment faster and resulting in an overall sooner return to play.
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of cryotherapy can drastically improve joint disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. 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.
Cryotherapy improves blood circulation, which causes an increase in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients around the body. The brain releases natural “feel good” endorphins to help keep on with the extreme cold temperatures. These same endorphins increase energy levels and leave you with a euphoric feeling, for up to 8 hours, clients revealed.
Cryotherapy makes your metabolism work 3x faster AND reduces cellulite — thanks to the sub-zero temperatures make your blood circulation soar high, boosting oxygen and nutrients around the body, rushing a removal of toxins, and toning your muscles. Clients have reported seeing results after three sessions only. Cryotherapy should be used as part of a healthy living plan.
Improves Skin TONE
Cryotherapy refines the general state of the skin by boosting oxygen and nutrient supply to the skin. Regular cryotherapy tightens the skin and reduces/prevent signs of aging. During cryotherapy treatment, the skin vessels and capillaries undergo a period of vasoconstriction (constriction of blood vessels) followed by vasodilation (dilation of blood vessels) upon finishing the session.
