These are just a few of the symptoms that Cryotherapy can help with. Whole Body Cryotherapy is a non-invasive therapy that triggers the body’s natural fight or flight response to accelerate recovery and decrease inflammation throughout the body. After just 2-3 minutes of exposure to the extreme cold (3 minutes max), you will notice a boost in energy, relief of muscle and/or joint pain, and many other positive benefits.
Our Cryotherapy chamber is -110 Degrees Celsius, and our pre-chamber is -60. The body releases endorphins at this cold temperature, which helps to reduce stress and also activates the body’s natural pain-relief system.
After one session, the benefits will become evident almost right away. If done regularly, it becomes more effective and with longer lasting effects. In fact, many athletes use cryotherapy two times a day.
Whole body cryotherapy is used to help with disorders such as multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, some sleep disorders, and even some mental and emotional conditions such as anxiety and depression.
Essentially, endorphins are hormones, or chemical messengers, that the body produces to relieve stress and strain. This hormone stimulates the increased production of dopamine, responsible for the pleasure effects associated with endorphins.
Your body releases endorphins naturally during physical activity. This helps your body reduce the sensation of pain. You also get a positive feeling in your body. These compounds are known as natural painkillers since they activate opioid receptors in the brain that help reduce discomfort and pain.
Endorphin production also gets stimulated through cryotherapy, releasing a cocktail of well-being throughout that has all the benefits we will be mentioning later. The sensation of well-being and pain reduction system are felt almost immediately.
