the cold, hard facts.
You don’t need to be a celebrity or serious athlete to enjoy the benefits of cryotherapy, you just need to be serious about your fitness and overall health!!!!
Cryotherapy is a whole-body or localized exposure to subzero temperatures to promote the bodies’ natural anti-inflammatory response, release endorphins, reduce pain and spasms, boost cellular survival, and promote overall health. Cryotherapy is not a medical procedure, but a non-invasive alternative for individuals seeking a faster recovery and improved health.
The process was originally developed in 1978 in Japan by Dr. Toshiro Yamauchi to assist patients in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Studies conducted in Europe over the last two decades have established Whole Body Cryotherapy as a powerful treatment for inflammatory disorders like osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and other autoimmune and joint disorders. The treatments are also used to accelerate the production of collagen, to improve skin elasticity and texture, to reverse skin aging, and to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Whole body cryotherapy uses extreme cold to stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms by activating a fight or flight response. Blood is redirected away from the small blood vessels in the extremities, and into the core and vital organs. The body supercharges the blood with anti-inflammatory proteins, endorphins and oxygen which accelerates the rate of tissue repair and reduces inflammation, also boosting the body’s metabolic rate.
Professional athletes have embraced Whole Body Cryotherapy as a powerful treatment to heal athletic injuries, decrease recovery time and increase athletic performance. Celebrities and models have discovered Cryotherapy as a treatment to improve skin appearance, boost metabolism and weight loss and promote collagen production for tighter, younger looking skin.
