Cryotherapy uses nitrogen to activate the body’s powerful healing “cold-shock response.”
During the 3 min session, blood will rush to the core and enhance your metabolism to create heat. Subsequently, blood returns to the extremities more oxygenated and carries newly released neurotransmitters that can dramatically lower inflammation, increase collagen levels, provide chronic pain relief, and boost your mood. Other benefits include anti-ageing and fat loss, accelerated recovery, and increased focus among many others.
The Edge For Athletes
Whole-body cryotherapy has become a powerful training and recovery tool both for professional athletes and for amateurs. Before training it helps to boost performance. After intense workouts cryotherapy sessions help to recover better relieving fatigue and delayed onset muscle soreness. In addition, whole-body cryotherapy is used to heal athletic injuries due to its ability to suppress pain for several hours.
Wellness & Beauty
Cryotherapy makes all systems of the body work to their fullest potential. The short-time (1 to 3 minutes) cooling of the upper skin layer in a cryosauna, no more than 0.5 mm deep, helps to boost metabolic processes, decrease anxiety and fatigue, improve sleep, and stimulate immune system.
Cold air feels more comfortable than cold water or ice baths, because at super low temperatures the air contains no moisture. As a bonus the cold triggers the production of endorphins, called “feel-good hormones”, which make you feel euphoric.
Super-low temperatures are cutting-edge and efficient way to trigger self-healing mechanisms. Cryotherapy activates natural body defences and that is why it is totally safe. Besides, due to short-time exposure the body core temperature remains unchanged and the skin temperature does not drop below 5°. Whole-body cryotherapy provides powerful anti-inflammatory response and pain relief.
