Cryotherapy acts as an anti-inflammatory, and helps your body recover from intense exercises by flushing your muscles and delivering nutrients and oxygen to them. Whole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) helps improve muscular resistance to fatigue and increases muscular capacity to regenerate, which has been proven to enhance muscle performance.
Beauty and Anti-Aging
During the cryotherapy process, blood vessels constrict to help maintain body temperature when exposed to cold. And when the body warms up the blood vessels dilate, allowing blood to rush to the skin’s surface, which in turn can give the complexion a glow. The cold temperatures can also open up the skin’s pores, allowing deeper penetration of moisturizers to help smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Exposed to the frigid cloud of nitrogen in the cryotherapy chamber, the body is tricked into thinking that it’s in danger which forces it into preservation mode. It is while in this preservation mode that metabolism is accelerated, resulting in anywhere from 500 to 800 calories being burned during the process.
Health and Wellness
Cryotherapy stimulates the body to release a rush of adrenalin and endorphins, resulting in immediate mood enhancement, and even a sense of euphoria. Cryotherapy also helps lower cortisol, which alleviates stress levels and anxiety. Overall, the mental health benefits of cryotherapy makes this a valuable treatment for short and long term results.
