The human body is capable of enduring many different environments. But would you strip almost naked and stand in temperatures of –100 to –250 degrees Fahrenheit? That’s much colder than the coldest place on earth… welcome to whole body cryotherapy.

This technique has been used successfully since the beginning of 1970’s and in this time, it has proven its worth thousands of times. Whole body cryotherapy is used in clinical medicine, rehabilitation medicine and even in spa therapy. This brand new machine aims to use the freezing cold to help the body heal itself quicker and can even completely replace the use of drugs in some cases.

So How Does Whole Body Cryotherapy Work?

While whole body cryotherapy is a very simple physical treatment, it triggers a whole series of events throughout the body. This is because cold-induced simulations which are transmitted by nerves to the central nervous system are stored in different neural circuits. The freezing temperature in the chamber encourages blood to rush from the skin and muscles to the core of the body. As the blood rushes to the core, it circulates in the core for about 2–3 minutes. After the exit of the chamber, the body vessel dilates and there’s a flash of red blood cells throughout the whole body.

This is why the application of whole body cryotherapy can block pain or alleviate chronic inflammation of the joints. It’s also the reason it can be used to adjust the innovation of the muscles, and enhance their performance. It can also be used whenever you need to normalize the level of central activity.

What’s The Process Involved in Cryotherapy?

The process only takes a few minutes. Blood pressure and pulse rate should be checked by the practitioner before each session in the cryo chamber. Extremities such as the hands and feet must be protected. During treatment, the technician and the client should be in constant communication. A session should last about 2 or 3 minutes. The duration of stay in the chamber is closely monitored and recorded by the attendant.

In sports medicine and sports physiotherapy, whole body cryotherapy is gaining importance, whether before or during exercise. Its positive features are welcomed more and more by trainers as well as medical providers. There are three features that stand out.

Performance: cryotherapy can significantly shorten the recovery time after exercise so that the next round of exercise can be started sooner. Training is therefore enhanced with faster recovery.

Performance enhancement to a specific level: This means that use of cryo can improve the rapid power capacity as well as endurance.

Pain Alleviation Effect of cryo treatments: Many clients experience significant reduction of chronic pain after a series of cryo treatments.

The power of cold helps to improve many people’s sense of wellbeing in the long run. With just a few minutes of treatment, your body will be more active than before.
