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.

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.

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.

Infrared saunas: What Is It?
An infrared sauna is a technology that is existing for many years. Medical professionals and dermatologist have endorsed it and recommended it to the elderly, athletes, obese people and those recovering from injuries.
Saunas typically heat the body by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation from the heated surface. However, infrared saunas use a different principle. The IR sauna has infrared heaters that emit the infrared light. The infrared light is perceived to heat, therefore, making our bodies sweat even at low temperatures as our skin absorbs the radiant heat. The low temperatures make it more tolerable than conventional saunas, making IR saunas the most effective tool for natural healing.
How Does the IR therapy work?
The infrared saunas use different infrared wavelengths to promote wellness. The therapy is unique as it combines near, mid and far wavelengths to promote healing of the skin and rejuvenation of body cells. The IR waves penetrate deep into the skin tissue of the whole body (up to three inches), helping to burn fat. This will not only help with weight loss but with detoxification as well.

Since you get to sweat, you detox the body, and at the same time, there is a substantial increase in heart rate. These activities promote weight loss.
- The most compelling reason to use an infrared sauna is the pain relief associated with the IR technology. A study of patients complaining of fatigue, stiffness, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic pain showed a gradual reduction in pain. The technology penetrates deep into the tissues, joints, and muscles to speed up recovery time and reduce pain.
- The IR sauna makes the heart beat faster, which in turn pump more quickly, increasing blood flow and reduced blood pressure.
- The near-infrared light wavelength is useful for healing damaged skin epidermis and dermis. The near wavelengths stimulate collagen production that improves skin tone.
