How to beat the winter blues

With a month until the official start of Spring still to go it seems everyone’s coming down with bugs, sickness and generally the winter blues.

Did you know Cryotherapy, along with the other great benefits such as reducing inflammation, immunity boosting and increased metabolism/energy, can help boost your mood.

Here’s a few ways Cryotherapy can help to lift your mood and boost your mental health this winter:

  1. Endorphin Release: Exposure to cold temperatures during cryotherapy sessions may trigger the release of endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that can produce feelings of well-being and reduce pain perception. This increase in endorphins might help alleviate depressive symptoms associated with winter blues.
  2. Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Cryotherapy is believed to have anti-inflammatory effects, which could potentially reduce inflammation in the brain that has been linked to depression and mood disorders.
  3. Increased Blood Flow: Exposure to cold temperatures can cause blood vessels to constrict, which may initially reduce blood flow. However, once the body warms up after cryotherapy, blood flow typically increases, potentially improving circulation and delivering more oxygen and nutrients to the brain, which may have mood-enhancing effects.
  4. Norepinephrine Release: Cold exposure has been shown to increase levels of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter that plays a role in mood regulation. Higher levels of norepinephrine may help alleviate symptoms of depression and boost mood.
  5. Stress Reduction: Some people find cryotherapy sessions to be relaxing and stress-relieving. Stress reduction can be beneficial for overall mental health and may help alleviate symptoms of winter blues.
